One of the most informative and entertaining parts of our trip. Phenix did a great job of not only teaching us about Santorini wine, but also the history of the island, which was all very interesting. We got a great tour of the island and got to taste some great wine. I would definitely recommend it.

Six years ago Phenix took four of us on a wine tour of Santorini. It was fun to see behind the scenes and meet winemakers. We were in Santorini last week and took another tour with Phenix. We visited a winery but instead of a wine centric tour, we got some culture. We visited Akrotiri where Phenix arranged for an... More

We arrived in Santorini last-minute with nothing booked. I found SAFOWI as well as a number of other potential tours on...what else...Tripadvisor (!)... and thought that this one sounded terrific. I emailed the contact address, and immediately received a response from the guide, Phenix Gilbert. She was very accommodating and managed to find a time for us that worked. My... More

My husband and I took this tour in July and it was amazing. Phenix was awesome and so informative. You can tell she has such a passion for what she does and shares this passion with you. All of the host of the wineries were so gracious and kind. The food served at our last stop was amazing! Highly recommend!... More

What a surprise to learn the white wines in Greece are so good. Phoenix gave us a very informative tour of the best wineries. I've been on many wine tours including ones in France and I have to say she is very knowledgeable. This tour should definitely make your list of things to do in Santorini. Thank you Phoenix!!

Today 3 friends and I took a Safowi food and wine tour. It was awesome!!!! I had the best time and learned so much. Phenix was absolutely delightful. She started by explaining the soil and how pumice plays a critical role in watering the vineyards. From there we traveled to 3 or 4 wineries and sampled what Santorini has to... More

We had a group of 9 friends on the semi private 4-hour wine tour. We were paired with two other couples so it was a nice sized, lively group. Private transportation was provided right from our villa which was very convenient (if a bit warm in the van--obviously not Phenix's fault). Phenix was every bit as friendly, fun and informative...

Phenix was an absolute knowledge on Santorini and the local wines. She clearly has passion for the vineyards, and for life in general. We stared the day with two other wonderful couples, who were young and although we took the morning tour, we did not feel it was the wrong time of day to be sampling Santorini's finest wines! It...

I hear you on the "another winery" point., although to keep the price competitive and reasonable it must stay at 3 wineries-4 hours. I have longer private tours for more in depth tastings... Thanks for joining in and the great review! More
