I cannot recommend this tour or our tour guide, Mary, enough. The tour was the perfect balance of local history and culture, and delicious wine. Mary was so knowledgeable and passionate about Santorini; it made our day with her informative, engaging and incredibly fun. We had a fabulous day and would absolutely recommend you spend a day with Mary on your next trip to Santorini! (I will be back whenever she offers a Local Cats of Santorini tour :) )

Amazing way to spend an afternoon in Santorini! The wineries were beautiful and the wine was delicious, but it was our guide Mary and the staff at each of the wineries who really made the tour special. Mary had so much knowledge of Greece’s wine history to share with us and we learned so much during our tour. Highly recommend booking this tour if you’re interested in trying local wines while in Santorini.

The value of the trip is amazing ! Our tour guide, Elisa, is very knowledgeable about the island and proud of her job. Recommended to someone looking to learn about tour some great points around the island.

Tour was very good. It has several places of interest around the island and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.
