It was a good experience. Our guide was very knowledgable and could share alot of info. You are grouped in small groups on 6 to 8 ppl so in that sense it good. Better not to make dinner reservations after because the tour may drag as it is dependant on other people within the group. But overall it is a... More

Jacqui and I booked the trip on line and had a fast response to our request. Nikos collected us at the designated spot bang on time and then started the tour. We also got to see most of the island during the tour. I found this informative, fun and got to taste some great wines. Nikos knows his stuff and... More

Enjoyed the wine tour with Santorini Wine Tour. We were picked up promptly, in a very nice car, and taken to the wineries. The guide learned each of our names, and always addressed us by our name, teaching us about the wines as well as soliciting our thoughts. so it was a great mix of personable and professional by the...

We participated in the afternoon tour. It was very informative as our guide (Vaios) was very well versed on the wines of Santorini and the wineries we visited. He chose three different types of wineries, one that was very traditional in its process, one that a bit newer and one that grew wines on the vine that is more prevalent... More

Forget all the snobbery that can be associated with wine tasting, this was a brilliant day! Vaios was a brilliant guide. Informative, passionate and down to earth. He made everyone feel very welcome and part of the group. He skilfully ensured the group dynamic and mix worked. I really enjoyed learning about the unique wines that are produced on the... More

If your idea of fun is being driven around a beautiful island in a luxurious minibus, visiting wineries and sampling the delicious fruit of their labour, all the while learning about its cultivation and production by a passionate, knowledgeable and hilarious guide then look no further. The tour itself is an excellent introduction to the various parts of the island.... More

My husband and I had our wine tour booked by our hotel, and were pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had! Our guide, Vaios, and driver were more than happy to fill us in on the history of the island and show us points of interest as we traversed the entire island with one other couple. We loved that...

Santorini is such a unique place to produce wine that this alone makes for an interesting tour to learn about different techniques and grape varieties. Our very knowledgable guide Vaios took us through some delightful wineries sharing the best of the local wines and even some local cheese to match. Vaios made a great effort to get everyone involved making... More

I will echo what many other have written - The wine tour with Vaois is a great way to see Santorini and a wonderful experience all around. Very reasonable price. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to the beautiful island.
