My daughter and I were picked up at our hotel by Michael then taken to the ruins to be guided by Katie at the ruins. What a great experience, Katie has been an active part of the dig, and an archaeological student, for years. Her knowledge and passion for the site gave us insight that not all visitors get to have. As a bonus, for travelers during the summer months, the ruins have an enormous roof protecting them, making the tour much more inviting.
Once finished with the ruins, we were picked up and taken to the first winery, where Michael, with a sense of humor and deep understanding of wine, educated us enough to write our own wine review. We went to 2 more wineries, as well as made a stop at the Donkey Beer craft brewery, all the while enjoying Michael's information about the unique challenges and solutions for growing grapes in Santorini.
All of the wineries served traditional breads, cheeses, and olives. As we left our hotel at 9:30 and returned close to 4:00 we would have enjoyed having an actual lite lunch but do not consider it an issue. (some people had signed up for the cooking class and branched off after the 2nd winery)
We would go on this tour again, it rivals the tour we took last year in Sienna.
