Phenix knows a lot about Santorini wines. My wife was impressed with her knowledge. We really enjoyed her enthusiasm. The wine trip was a great way to see the island while tasting great wines. The last stop included some really tasty appetizers. I have no complaints. I recommend doing it the first day you are there. Phenix provides great recommendations... More

Phenix is fabulous! She has a depth of knowledge about Santorini’s history and its wines and is the perfect host. She drove us around most of the island, sharing stories I didn’t hear on other tours and took us to 3 different wineries. She also took time to learn about each of us and the types of wines we enjoy.... More

Phenix was warm and inviting right from the beginning. My husband and myself knew very little about wine and she answered all of our questions without making us feel like we were bothering her. The highlight of the trip was the cooking lesson at The Bone. Towards the end of our meal Phenix even came back and sat with us... More

We didn't want to organise too many trips so researched and chose the lovely Phenix. She is brilliant, knowledgeable and fun! We visited 3 vineyards and had some of the best chocolate ever! The mezze was really tasty and complemented the wine. She advised us on restaurants and loads of other things. Nothing was too much trouble. I recommend!! X

Phenix was the perfect tour guide! We arrived in Santorini the night before and started our first day with Phenix on our wine tour. This was perfect because not only was she providing us with her expertise on Santorini wines, but she provided history, an introduction to the culture and suggestions on things to do while we were visiting this...

I read on tripadvisor about this wine tour and promptly booked it.Usually when a tour has such high reviews i'm weary of what the real life experience would be like. Phenix did not disappoint!!!

Our wine tour/cooking class was the highlight of our trip to Santorini. Because we were at the start of the season, our tour/class was a private affair with just two of us and Phenix. Phenix was a perfect host, sharing her love for wine, Santorini, and cooking with us. The wine was excellent and the cooking class provided us with... More

Words cannot describe the amazing time we had with Phenix. Fist, she was very responsive with communicating with me, very knowledgeable of the island, and she was very easy going. Unfortunately, (but Phenix said it was a good thing) we visited the island in the off season so not a lot of activities were open. Phenix was kind enough to... More
