We had a wonderful time with Phenix. She is extremely knowledgeable and our small group made this day even more special SO much better than taking one of those extremely large vans with too many people Call SAFOWI and schedule....it's worth it. Great, great day. Thank you Phenix!

I only left Phenix, head of our wine tour, an hour ago and I have immediately come to my iPad to write a review. This was a wonderful activity for a day in Santorini to get away from all the tourist crowds and learn a lot about this particular Santorini industry. Phenix, the head of the tour, was so accommodating... More

Did a personalized wine tour for the day (we were able to see three wineries as well as the Santorini Brewing company, which made the guys we were traveling with VERY happy!), and it was probably one of our best days not only in Santorini, but in Greece. Phenix is incredibly knowledgeable about the vines, wines, and grape history on... More

I've been told there are many wine tours on santorini. All I can say is there isn't a better tour then this one. We chose the wine and cooking tour and it was just excellent in every possible way. If you're on the fence.. Just go ahead and do it.. You'll be pleased you did.. And schedule it for the... More

Phenix does an incredible job. Originally from California, but having lived for in Santorini for over 15 years - Phenix is the perfect resource for those interested in learning about Greek wine, food, and culture by comparing and contrasting it to American culture. Also, each destination along the tour is magnificent. The cooking class is literally on the beach, and... More

This was a real treat. Phenix is extremely knowledgeable not just about the wines, but also the island culture and history. We are glad we did this tour at the beginning of our stay as she gives quite a comprehensive tour of the island going to the 3 vineyards included. She is also very energetic and enthusiastic about what she... More

Really great tour. Phenix picked us up at our place and provided an overview of the island as we drove to the wineries. The wines and the explanations were great. The cooking lesson was more like cooking demonstration, but still was wonderful. It was at Nichteri Restaurant in Kamari Beach. They had set up an outdoor kitchen right on by... More

Thank you for your review! It was great having you along. You are not the first to say the class wasn't challenging enough. It is billed as a class/demo and designed so everyone can join. Am currently working with the chef to offer a more in depth class for those, like yourself who would want more of a challenge. I... More

I was so incredibly pleased with this tour and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Santorini. It is worth the price in gold because you not only get to visit wineries, you also benefit from an island tour at the same time. I learned an incredible amount on this tour and tasting the VinSanto was quite a treat! Book... More

This wine tour was really really excellent. I only wished we had done it at the beginning of our holiday in Santorini as it gives you a good sense of the geography of Thira and also Phenix highlights some interesting places that might be worth a later visit. Phenix really knows her wine and brought the history of wine in... More
