I would rate this as a must do activity on Thira. The ancient ruins were very interesting but the wine tasting part of the tour was great fun. The wine was good but our guide Michael was great! He was very knowledgeable about wine don't know why he's not in the business somewhere, and he made it a fun learning experience. And did I mention we drank some very good wine! The Galavas wines were the best. This is a Thira must-do!
Pick up prompt and convenient, the transport very comfortable. The guides for Akrotiri and wineries were extremely well informed could not have asked for better. We learnt so much about the Bronze age ruins and so much about the qualities of wine we were very happy.
Fantastic, one of the best wine tours I have been on. The sommelier was very informative and charming
This tour was amazing!! We learned so much on the history of the ancient akrotiri ruins and in addition became wine connoisseurs. I definitely recommend doing this tour. Excellent for history and wine lovers!!
Best tour ever! The trip to Ancient Akrotiri was amazing, thanks to wonderful Kate - our guide for the site. She is knowledgable and we never wanted the visit to end. An additional 30 minutes for this part would be fantastic. Our winery guide, Ilias, is hospitable and made every minute worthwhile.
This was a great way to see much of the island without having to rent a car and deal with driving and traffic. Our guides were great and it was a nice mix of activities.
This was amazing! 14 different wines in 3 wineries. 4 beers at the brewery. Lots of fun!
Tour guide was exceptional in his knowledge of wines. Great tour! highly recommend. Akrotiri is NOT TO BE MISSED.
We had a wonderful time! The tour guide at ancient Akrotiri and the wine tour were fabulous! I recommend eating a good breakfast before going because they do not provide very much food.
Dennis was a wonderful guide. His wine knowledge was terrific. We've lived in northern California for 40 years and still learned things from him about wine appreciation. He set us up with Katie, a very passionate, knowledgeable guide at Akrotiri. We went to 3 wineries and a brewery. The snacks served with the wine made a delicious lunch. Santorini can be so crowded when cruise ships come in. Of the people on our small cruise ship, all agreed that our day sounded like the best Santorini experience ever.
This tour was fantastic! I have been on many wine tours and on many tastings over the years and this was by far the best in terms of what I learned in how to pair the wines with food that I am eating. I was also delighted with the olives, salami, cheeses and breads to eat with the wines that I tried.
The ancient Akrotiri was very interesting. My boyfriend and I do not like to drink first thing in the morning so it was a great start to the morning. We enjoyed learning about all the ancient settlers to Santorini and how their homes were covered by a volcanic erruption. I highly recommend to wine, food and history lovers!!
A fantastic tour! Our guide, Stamatis, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly during the wine tasting. We explored various varieties of wine from Santorini, including some sweet wine, and they are very unique and flavourful. We also visited the Santorini brewing company, which was a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended!
Tour was great! Picked us up on time in a clean van and offered us bottled water. Your had total of 4 pairs (8 total) and was perfect size. 3 wineries and 1 brewery. Lasted 9-5 approximately from door to door. Stopped at excavation site in beginning for maybe 45 minutes that was interesting.
Well informed guides both at Akrotiri and at the three wineries we visited. Very educational and a lot of fun.
Excellent trip and well worth the money. After the trip to Akrotiri we had a tour of three wineries and one brewery. The guide for the wine tasting was extremely knowledgeable and the maximum people was 10 so a very personal and enjoyable afternoon with at least 12 different wines and 3 beers!
Fantastic! We thought it was a half day tour, but it ended up being all day. Great wine! Excellent tour.
Great tour, loved it!.First up were the ancient ruins of Akrotiri which were fascinating. The guide, Keti, was very knowledgable and interesting and we learned so much about the history of the island. Then we visited 3 different wineries and a brewery with our guide for this part of the tour, Stamatis. The wines were lovely, commentary excellent and above all we had a lot of fun.
We went on the Ruins and Wine tour. We enjoyed it more than the tour we went on in Italy last year, which says much in few words. Great wine, great people, fun and educational!
Great tour, well organized and very informative. The wines are all wonderful, and it was interesting to find out how they are made. A nice perk to have stopped at the only brewery on the island as part of the trip as well.
Awesome tour and really enjoyed the passion Michael (tour guide) has for wine. Learned so much on this tour, highlight of our trip to Santorini. A Must Do!
Good tour. Akrotiri was interesting, could have allotted another 1/2 hour. Kate, our guide at the ruins was extremely knowledgeable and humorous.
Ilias, our wine guide is highly qualified - a sommelier - and we learned more about wines from him than any other wine tour before.
Good trip, very knowledgeable guide.
Maybe would of preferred different winerys though.
