“Great for tasting some local wines and getting to know more about the island”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

This tour was really good. Phenix was very friendly and gave us lots of good info. She picked us up in Oia and took us to 3 differentes wineries, all of them with something different and interesting to show and some very good wines.
We did this on our 4th day on the island. We wish we did it before, because after the tour we got much better at picking our wines at the restaurants.
The wine business in the island has so many unique features (all of them explained to us by Phenix) that make this an unmissable experience!

“A wonderful day of wine touring plus great views of Santorini and Oia.”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

Phenix Gikbert provided this tour. If you love wine and the beauty of the Island of Santorini this tour is not to miss. because you get to taste (and maybe buy) some great wines. But you also drive all over this beautiful island. Phenix is a wonderful guide and knows her wines.

“A Great Excursion While in Santorini”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

My wife and I were in Santorini in August celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. Phenix took great care of us on the tour. She has an incredible knowledge of the island and of the local wines (which we really enjoyed). Plus she is really fun. A must do while you are in Santorini!

“If you love wine then don't miss out”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

My friend and I are both in the wholesale wine business and wanted to check out the local scene. Phenix is very connected and organized a very good tour. If you wanted to taste local wines that are really good and food this tour is not to be missed.

“More than we even imagined!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We recently visited Santorini with another couple. We chose to do a private wine tour with Phenix. She picked us up at 1 and we concluded the tour at 630. She took us to 4 wineries, along with some scenic stops along the way. Phenix has an incredible knowledge of the area and of the local wines. She was able to educate us on the differences in the local wines as well as how wine is produced on the island. We had a perfect day and enjoyed every detail of the tour! She even made great recommendations for local restaurants. We are so glad we chose to do a tour with SAFOWI and would HIGHLY recommend it to those seeking a personalized tour of Santorini's wines!
