Wow, wow, wow! We cannot recommend this ebike tour highly enough. We went places which we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and at each location Vassilis and Katarina gave us an insight into the history and culture of the island. It's clear that they have a deep respect and passion for Santorini, and it's wonderful to feel that enthusiasm throughout the tour. On a practical level, the bikes themselves are really high-end. Vassilis and Katarina do a great job to evaluate the skills of the riders and tailor the route accordingly. The stops along the way for fresh orange juice and a light meal were fantastic as well. Neither my wife or I are big mountain bikers, but we both agreed this was the best thing we did on the island. Truly, cannot recommend highly enough.
We've had an amazing day exploring Santorini on bike. Everything worked smoothly, from the reservation and pick up at the hotel to the drop off back in Oia. The bikes are great, light enough if don't wanna use the motor and challenge yourself, and powerful enough if you're not used to riding uphill too much. The tour is well paced so that everybody can enjoy it and have a good time. Nothing was done in a rush, there's time to chat and take pictures, enjoy a view and a cold drink. Besides the cycling part, the tour is very informative and the views of the Caldera are breathtaking. The food and the wine were delicious. Above all, Katarina and Vassilis are very friendly and professional, we've really enjoyed our time with them and can't wait to be back.
We visited three wineries, and really enjoyed them all. The wine museum at Koytsoyannopoulos was interesting: lots of history there... the displays equally interesting but had some "interesting" quirks; at the tasting, our sommelier was very knowledgeable. But the highlight for us was Venetsanos -- the view was amazing, we got to know our fellow travellers a little more, and the wines were really nice (we appreciated the food served with them as well, at all the wineries).
We had an exceptional time. Our driver Nikos was prompt and a wealth of information about the wineries and the island. The winery visits were good. The first did a great job showing the local methods of viniculture relevant to Santorinr. We felt the second location had the best descriptions and food pairings. The third had a stunning placating and some delectable wines. Felt it was well worth the cost.
Gregory was a terrific tour guide. We really enjoyed everything he showed us (and we saw a lot that day) and he was VERY knowledgeable and informative, handling every question we had with ease. Such a gentleman as well. This tour was the best thing we did on Santorini. Very worthwhile.
