We did the Wine Tour with Cooking Class in October, the last day Phenix was offering it for the season and we are so glad. She is a very knowledgeable host (not even a guide, she makes you feel like an old friend immediately) and we learned more about the history of Santorini from her including why the grapes are...

We booked the Wine and Cooking class a few months before travelling to Santorini. We had a great day tasting wines from Santorini, visited 2 wineries, and then onto our cooking class. The history of Santorini wine is very interesting, and I don't think we would have gotten so much information and history had we not done this tour. If... More

Really enjoyed our tour of the island with Phenix, her passion for Santorini and especially the local wines really shines through. The Santorini wine story is a fascinating one, even more so for it's ongoing changes. Highly recommend getting in touch with SAFOWI for a really good insight into local wineries and a genuine first hand account of how these... More

My husband and I had the very good fortune to book the Sounds of the Castle Tour. This was not just a tour... truly a surreal experience and a memory we would not change for anything.

If you are planning on staying on Santorini a few days, you must start your trip with Phenix Gilbert's private night tour!!! Phenix is from California but has lived on Santorini for many years and provided us with an amazing tour, introducing us to so many wonderful places to go during our brief four days there. She makes the tours... More

Thank you for taking the time to review and I'm sorry that you felt it was overpriced. Most feel it is a good value and there are many costs, both hidden and obvious that prevent lowering the price. I appreciate the feedback though, thank you. More

We did this tour on the 4th day of our week long trip to Santorini and it was so GREAT! (That's why we wish we'd done it on the first day---you have a chance to buy great wine to drink during your trip!

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.
