@SantoriniExperts, our group took the History Wine tasking tour with the excellent tour guide, Kathrin (Highly recommend to request her). This tour offers a history lesson on how wines are produced in a dry climate, using the "Kouloura" a basket to capture the moisture from the morning dew. We visited three Estates; each estate has its own unique taste and is privately and family-owned by local families. @SanoriniExpoerts this is no ordinary tour company but a personal experience like hanging out with family and friends over a glass of fantastic wine talking about past experiences.

This tour was more like going to visit some of the local wineries with a friend instead of with a tour guide. Kathrin was very knowledgeable and provided some historical facts about Greece that we were not aware of. You asked a question about Greece she had an answer. Our group was small in numbers which allowed us to start as
strangers and become friends by the end. We enjoyed laughing, learning Greek words and gestures, in addition to some wine drinking tips.
The wineries we visited not only provided information on their unique history of the wine making process but also offered a large variety of wines to sample and light appetizers to nibble on. Also, we were not rushed through the tastings at
each site which I appreciated.
Kathrin's personality made this wine tour very fun and memorable and one of the best I been on in Greece.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to do a wine tasting in Santorini. I look forward to the next time.

My wife and I had this wonderful experience. We visit 3 local wineries and it was everything well organized. Kathryn (the organizator) was very kind and she told us a lot of infos about the island. The wine tastings were different from each others and they were all very nice. We really suggest everyone to try it!

Cancelled tour the day before, so that we have to find something else one day for the day after. Really disappointed.

Dear elliemergency, Firstly we would like to thank you for booking your tour with SantoriniExperts. We regret to have caused you inconvenience, but we are also very disappointed and confused. What exactly are you evaluating? The fact that you booked a SEMI PRIVATE tour where it clearly states in the booking conditions that if the minimum number of participants is not met we have the right to cancel the tour offering an alternative date or refunding the full amount of money. Your booking was for one of the last days of this season and due to the fact that there were not many tourist on the island anymore, your booking unfortunately remained the only one for that day. Please be informed that we grant the same right to our guests: if for any reason they need to cancel a tour they have booked with us, we do not charge cancellation fee until 24 hours prior the tour. We kindly suggest you, next time you visit Santorini please go ahead and book our PRIVATE wine tour. It will be carried out even with just one participant. We are fortunate to have one of the best sommeliers of the island in our team. He will personally guide you through ancient vineyards, take you to three different wineries explaining everything about the unique viticulture and wine production. He will also be sharing his precious knowledge about wine and food pairing and more. We truly understand your disappointment but feel that this rating is not justified by any means and harms our reputation, therefore we kindly ask you to remove it. However, we wish you all the best and hope to hear from you next time you visit the island.

We travelled to Santorini in July 2019 and decided to book a tour about the history of Santorini including a local wine and vineyard tour. our tour, and the entire day was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide Joanna was prompt in picking us up from our hotel and extremely knowledgeable throughout the day. She pointed out so many interesting points of interest as we travelled to three different wineries. Each winery had a different atmosphere and the food pairings were incredible. What made our day unforgettable was the friendship of Joanna. She felt like family to us. She knew the history of the island, as well as being an expert on the wines and pairings. Thank you Joanna for an unforgettable day! Frank and Liz

Sandra was an amazing tour guide and tailored our experience to fit our interests. What a beautiful Island and being short on time, this is the way to see the most. Visiting the family winery & farm was a highlight of our day. The unique growing of the grapes and winemaking is worth the trip.

Our tour was wonderful! We got to try three very unique wineries and learn a lot about the island. Markos was an energetic, fun and knowledgeable guide. A lot of fun and you get to try a plethora of different styles of wine and learn about the process to make it.

A really good wine tasting tour. Visited 3 great wineries. The highlight of the trip was by far our driver Marcos. We had such an amazing time with him and a ton of laughs. He was an excellent driver and guide. Can’t recommend him enough.

My husband and I had an awesome time on the wine tour hosted by Marcos. He shared great information regarding Santorini and was very passionate about the wineries and culture. We visited 3 wineries which ranged from a smaller scale family run farm to a larger scale winery. The tour guides were knowledgeable at each winery and offered food pairings as well. It was a fun afternoon and very comfortable.

Marcos was a fantastic tour guide. You could tell he genuinely loves his job and was excited to create a memorable experience. He also provided a lot of information on the history and culture of Santorini. I loved that we had time to travel to three different wineries (beginning at a small family owned winery to a larger scale production). Each winery offered a different perspective on the industry and the Santorini wine culture. All of the tour guides at each winery were friendly and knowledgable. An awesome experience overall!
