wonderful experience, picked up the hotel, visited 3 wineries for a tasting with a small group of total of 8 people.
Tasting included cheese and meat plates at every tasting. Great guide, overall a great value and worthwhile experience. Highly recommend.

Katie, our guide at Akrotiri, was very knowledgeable and her English was very good. Stephano, our wine guide, has an impressive knowledge of Santorini wines and how different soils change the taste of the wines. His food pairings complemented the varietals perfectly.

We absolutely loved this tour. We were picked up on time from our hotel and driven to the Ancient Akrotiri ruins. We were greeted by a very informed tour guide who has been doing this for 30 years. She was terrific. Although the tour said there could be up to 8 people, we were alone and received focused attention. it was outstanding. Then we were picked up by van by a wine expert and joined two other couples. We all got along very well and the three wineries we visited were outstanding. One was better than the next and the explanation of the various wines was great. To top it off we made new friends. Ive gone on several viator tours and this is among the best!

Ancient Akrotiri tour was great and educational. We love history so we did enjoy a lot. The wine tour was also fantastic, our guide Ivan is very knowleageable about wines, we learned a lot from him. Santorini tour groups were professional and they really care about their customers.

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.

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.

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.

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!
