Great opportunity to sample the quality white wines of Santorini. Phenix is a wonderful host with a great knowledge and entusiasm for the ancient vinyards and their produce. The two of us stayed in Oia and were lucky enough to be the only clients on the day. Visited three wineries. Great fun. Starting with virtually a zero knowledge base of... More

On April 29th my wife and I arrived on a cruise ship to Santorini. After taking a ride on the cable car up the cliff to Fira, we were greeted by Phoenix as instructed. We immediately started our very interesting and enjoyable private tour of Santorini and three wineries. While driving to the first winery, Phoenix provided an overview of... More

If you're in Santorini, don't miss Phenix's wine tour! She has lots of knowledge of the local wine and the top places to see, besides being a lovely lady! And at the end of the tour we had a little treat of delicious greek food combined with wine. Totally reccomend it!!!

Phenix not only showed us some amazing wineries, but she also took us to some lovely churches and sights of interest. All along the way, Phenix told us delightful tales of the island and its history, and at the end, she gave us the names of some excellent restaurants that proved to be wonderful. I would definitely book another tour... More

Being lovers of wines and the lore surrounding it, my partner and I were very pleasantly surprised by Santorini's wines and the uniqueness of its viniculture. We were introduced to this on a recent trip to Santorini, where we joined Phenix's SAFOWI tour of several of the island's wineries. She proved to be the perfect host and is a gold... More

My fiance and I stayed in Oia in September and Tony, the proprietor at the Sea Capt's House, highly recommended we go on a wine tasting with Phenix. We set up the excursion and are so glad we did! Phenix is a wealth of knowledge about the island and about wine. We had an absolute wonderful time and really enjoyed... More

Our guide Phenix was punctual, and she was very knowledgeable of the island and all of the wine she introduced to us. She was able to create a very pleasant atmosphere within the group, despite the fact that we had all only just met. Along with an endless knowledge of wine, she possessed extensive knowledge of the food industry and... More

We toured three wineries with Phenix in October of 2011 while on our honeymoon. The tour was semi-private and reasonably priced. Phenix is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about food and of course wine, and knows Santorini wines as well as the locals! She has a great personality and was so fun to spend the afternoon with. She took us to three great... More

We arrived on RSSC Voyager , Phenix picked us up right in Fira - one block from the tram. What a fabulous experience & wine education. We visited 4 fabulous small vineyards around the Island including walking through vineyards to see how the vines grow in Santorini. Then off to Oia for a fabulous lunch on the bay. Awesome day...
