    Excellent guide and driver, Apostolos. Visited 3 vineyards in 5 hours. Each served a generous plate of appetizers. The first winery, Hatzidskis, was the best. Stella gave an excellent tour and description of the wines - we tasted 6! Liked most of the wines and bought 3 bottles. From here, it gradually downhill. The next winery was Venetsanas and had a unique and interesting history. The tour was the best. The wine tasting was hurried. We liked the Vin Santo wine the best. The setting was beautiful, overlooking the port. The last and worst was visit was to Anhydrous. Tour very short and not particularly interesting nor did the young woman seem interested in what she was doing. We had three different servers and the information about the wine was limited as they too many tables to serve. No one ever explained how many tastings we would have and as they kept using the same glass, we weren’t sure when we were finished so we just left. Would not recommend this one at all.

    When they say private, they mean private! It was literally just the two of us on the tour, in addition to our guide, Dimitris. We are both extremely interested in wine tasting, history, etc, and our guide was knowledgable all around. We learned an incredible amount about the terroir on the Greek Isles, how the wind inspired the vine "basket", and even the lack of pesticides used during the growing process (no hangovers!). Besides the expertise and overall learning experience, the sights were absolutely incredible. I would recommend this 110% of the time.

    For a Grape Time, Book this Tour!

    My friends and I booked this wine tour and we’re so glad we did! We had such a great time exploring all the wineries with George. It was a very well organized tour with a great selection of wines (and meats and cheeses!). If we were staying another day we would have booked a second day to continue exploring all the wineries in Santorini!
