We were picked up at our hotel and taken to a local vineyard, then on the the wine tastings. Our guide Evan was so personable, and so knowledgeable about everything - we had such an amazing time! Even my husband, who is not really a wine lover, totally enjoyed himself! I cannot recommend Evan enough - he really made the tour more enjoyable.
Evan who was our host was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us all some great wine tasting tips, first class host! we went to three wineries: Boutari, Venetsanos and Artemis Karamolegos - all three were great. The view at Venetsanos while we were sipping wine and eating snacks was to die for and could happily have spent all day there. Evan came out with a cake with a candle at the final winery which was a lovely touch as it was my partner's 50th that day. Would definitely do again
Very good. Very knowledgeable guide. Very interesting and unique the way the vines grow on the island. Take the the afternoon option since you get to see the Best sunset in all Santorini at the end of the tour!!
Would recommend to anyone on Santorini that has the time, the wineries were all pretty good with a range of different types of wine mainly white with snack pairings. The best part the entire tour was the passionate tour guide who actually had a Phd. in viticulture!
This tour was great. Our guide Denis really knew his wine and offered us some great tips to further our wine knowledge in the future. The last winery had breath taking views of the caldera and a nice little snack. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes wine.
Thought the evening was excellent. Elias was knowledgable and humorous. I learned a great deal of info about pairing wines with foods. And speaking of food, the evening treats at sunset were very tasty. Also enjoyed the company of the other participants. Just fun people. My only recommendation, an extra bottle of red would be nice. I know Santorini is known for their whites but a little more variety would be nice. I'd do it again if I were in Santorini.
Had a great afternoon, evening with Evan who was so enthusiastic. Learned so much and met really nice people all interested in wine tasting. The evening was finished with tappas more wine and the sunset. Perfect day
Perfect, perfect, perfect. Our guide, Dennis was a sommelier who gave us a wonderful tour of 3 vineyards. He was fun and knowledgeable about the varietals on offer. This perfect afternoon ended at sunset on a terrace overlooking the Aegean with wine and tapas. I can say that you will wholeheartedly enjoy this experience!

This was an amazing tour!! We did the Sunset Tour and it was so fun, so exciting, the wines were great, Mike -our wine expert was knowledgable and informative. We got to sample some food with the wines which was great, and the views from the wineries were amazing! Highly recommended to anyone in Santorini.
This tour was absolutely amazing - we were on a very comfortable minibus with a total of 8 people - our guide was our driver and he was funny, knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate about the vineyards and wine culture in Santorini. The tour was not at all pretentious but instead appealed to anyone wanting to learn more about wine, have fun with new friends, and enjoy the stunning scenery on Santorini. We tried A LOT of wine and at no point did anyone try to sell us anything. The sunset view at the end was breathtaking. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip and absolutely book it again.
We received a lot more than expected out of this tour!!! The guide showed up on time and was really nice and friendly. He explained everything about the vineyards, the history and how things grow. He took us to each winery, explained each wine and allowed us to enjoy it!! There was snacks in all wineries and he was very generous w/ the pours!! At the end of the evening we saw the beautiful sunset and although windy and cold, he provided us scarfs and jackets!! Overall very helpful and wonderful service!! The food and wines were exceptional!!
Great evening tour with sunset view at the end. Very recommended. Tour guide Illias was very informative and entertaining. Very interesting to learn the unique way grapes are grown on Santorini. You wont go far from Fira, but its a well spent 4 hours. Great wines and good times. Oh, and these are not your stingy CA wine tasting pours! Our little group became fast friends just 8 people in all and ended up at Zorbas mexican after the tour courtesy of our driver dropping us off to cap the evening off. A really great first evening on the island.
Thoroughly enjoyable wine tour. Dennis was very knowledgable and passionate about wine. He gave us lots of information and advice about choosing and enjoying wine. We sampled twelve wines, the first session accompanied by a small but tasty plate of meats and cheese. The second visit was shorter but more scenic, the last session was just after we shared a beautiful sunset at the top of the island where our sampled wine came with a light, but delicious and typical Greek meal. Driven carefully by Dennis, it was a trip highlight.
Our wine tour was absolutely wonderful!! We learned so, so much about wine making in Santorini and in general! and about the different tastes of Santorini wines. Our tour guide, Evangelos, was nothing short of incredible!! He was so much fun, so passionate, so interesting, so knowledgeable and so kind. Truly an amazing person he knew how to keep us engaged as a group and it was great to do a blind taste test with everyone to see what kind of flavors/notes we would pick up. I would highly recommend doing this tour to anyone who goes to Santorini!
Superb, excellent tour guide, very intelligent and passionate. Exactly what we were looking for.
This has to be one of my top highlights whilst in Santorini! This was a birthday surprise for my best friend and she loved it too!! Our guide Illios (I think, not good with names) was excellent! So informative and encouraged us to really get involved! Do the sunset tour, you will not regret it!!
Evan was amazing and made this one of the highlights of our trip!
A great wine tour made even better by our tour guide Michael who was outstanding! Not only knowledgeable, but he explained which wines pair well with which foods. We visited three wineries, with the last one being unbelievable as it sits atop the cliffs and overlooks the bay/sea. It was a great way to start our three days in Santorini.
Amazing. Anyone who is traveling to Santorini should be this. Make sure you pick the sunset option!
An unreal day out with great wines and more food than required as food 'matching' at 2 of the 3 Wineries was substantial!
Evan was a fantastic host for the day sharing his knowledge of wine making and professional wine tasting with a very keen group as well as just enjoying the day.
I never thought a wine tour in Greece would be so educational and showcase such great wines.
A must tour to see some different parts of the island, try some great food and outstanding wine unique to Santorini...
Evan was an incredible tour guide and wine expert. My hubby is quite the connoisseur, having toured many wineries and purchasing private label wines for a former company. But even my husband learned new things during our time with Evan. And, on top of it all, the wine was good. : Great tour, definitely would recommend it.
This was an incredible experience, highly recommend the sunset tour!
This tour was relaxing, fun and informative! We had an excellent guide who went through how wine is uniquely made on the island and who taught the group how to properly taste wine. It included 12 wine tastings, snacks and a trip to the brewery as a bonus. It was a great value for wine lovers!
Friendly, knowledgable guide, outstanding wine and food and a perfect sunset view.
My bf and I had such a great experience on this wine tour. We didn't know alot about wine in general let alone about Santorini wine. Our group was made up of people with a wide spectrum of wine knowledge but we all had a great time together. I highly recommend it if you're in Santorini. Our guide Evan made the experience. He was very knowledgeable not only about Santorini wine but wine in general and I actually took away alot of what he taught us which says alot when you're drinking for a few hours. The pairing of wines with different food was amazing and really showed you how this can change the taste of the wine. Great tour!!!
