What You Can Expect
After sampling some of the wine, continue to your second traditional Santorini winery to learn more about the various types of Santorini wine that is produced on the island. Hear about assytriko, a widely cultivated white-wine grape, as well as wines such as nykteri and vinsanto that are both made from assytriko but boast entirely different flavors. Try a few more glasses of wine, and then travel to a nearby traditional Greek restaurant for your cooking class.
Meet the chef – your cooking teacher – and then roll up your sleeves to help out with the preparation of several traditional Greek dishes. As you cook, listen to stories about the country’s gastronomy from your chef and learn about the typical dishes of Santorini. While the dishes cooked during your class will vary each time, you can expect to cook some Santorini staples such as tomato fritters alongside Greek classics, perhaps moussaka or a classic Greek salad.
Towards the end of your session, sit down with your chef and group to eat your creations! Water is served alongside the dishes, and you can also try a popular liquor – raki or ouzo – to finish your meal just like the locals.
Before bidding your chef a fond farewell, take a recipe card to recreate the dishes back at home. Then, return to your minibus and finish your Santorini food experience with a hotel drop-off.
The tour and our guide was amazing. The wine tour and cooking class were great. They exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend it. The guide also took us for a beer tasting at Donkey Brewing and to the highest point of the island. These were nice additions to our trip. Wonderful day.
What a blast! Our driver and wine guide, Eliassp? was extremely knowledgable and fun. We visited Boutari and Gavalas for tours and education and then Karamegalos for wine and cooking class. We ate while cooking and then were surprised to be seated for another meal of all of the foods we helped prepare. It was too much food, but an amazing experience. We enjoyed meeting the other six people on the tour with us and are greatful that the experience taught us so much about Santorian wine.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
The only issue I had was trying to find the meeting point... We were supposed to meet near a hotel, but addresses don't exist there, which made it super difficult. Luckily, after we missed the mini bus, we called from our hotel and they sent a driver back for us!
We met up with the rest of the group at the second winery, and quickly got caught up! Haha! Nobody liked the vinsanto wine which tastes like ice wine, so everyone gave theirs to my husband and I. :
We had some great wine at each winery, and even made a stop at the Santorini Brewing Company! The tour guide and our driver were fantastic! I felt a little spoiled by all the food, wine and great company. The cooking class was a lot of fun just us and one other couple... We had a lot of wine by this point. Then we got to sit down and were served more of the food, and two bottles of wine! PLUS dessert which we didn't make.
This was one of the best parts of the trip! Definitely would recommend!
We had a fantastic time! We went with a small group to two wineries, which was fun to meet new people. The guide was great and very knowlegdgable about the vinyards. The two of us then broke off from the group for a private cooking class on the beach! We had a blast and the food was amazing!

Really awesome, thorough tour that covered all must-see attractions. The tour guide was very knowledgeable
The wine tour was good but not great however we enjoyed our time with the group of people and the wines were good. They were mostly white wines, so if you only like red, this may not be the tour for you. The cooking class was disappointing as we only got to chop vegetables and not really cook. The chef does the cooking and you mainly just watch. The food was very good and the restaurant is very quaint and nice. The tour was suppose to be five hours but we were there for seven hours. Our tour guide took the group who did not do the cooking class home as we were finishing up and then when he returned he sat in the back to eat a meal. We were left to wait longer then should have been necessary. This could be a great tour but it definitely needs changes to be made.
