We had the BEST time with Phenix! She was quick to respond in communications, timely, and very organized. She is extremely knowledgeable in Greek wines (and wine in general) so my friend and I learned a ton while drinking amazing wine :) She has been on the island since the mid 90s so has really gotten the chance to see the wine "industry" grow from the ground up on Santorini. I felt like we were getting an insider's perspective from someone who was intimately involved in the process for decades now and was truly passionate about the wines we drank and winemakers we met. We did the full day tour so we also got to do the Symposion and Akrotiri which was another way to get to know the history of the island and Greek culture. We had the best time with her, and I would gladly recommend this tour to any friends or family!

I had a wonderful time and learned a lot. Phenix is a great guide for food and wine when visiting Santorini. She shares her experience and knowledge in an engaging way, and knows all the local places to go for the best of everything on the island! I would highly recommend a tour with her.

My fiance and I have now had the pleasure of doing two private wine tours with Phenix. Both were amazing. Phenix is incredibly knowledgeable about wine and knows everything you need to know about all of the vineyards and wineries throughout Santorini. I highly recommend taking her tour if you are interested in visiting the wineries because she really does add a lot to the experience!

We had a great tour with Phenix, she was very knowledgeable and overall a fun person. We did the Basic Wine Tour in the second half of November, and unfortunately, a number of bottles we would have tried were no longer available by that time of year due to small production quantities and quick consumption, so I recommend taking the tour earlier in the year. Still, Phenix did her best with the options available, which we all appreciated.
