Loved this walking food tour. Our guide was amazing! We went on this tour the afternoon of our arrival to Santorini. Not only did this give us a chance to walk around town, our guide provided both insight and history into Santorini and gave us tips of places to go and things to see. The food was delicious and we were super stuffed by the end of the tour!!! We returned to a number of the restaurants we visited during this tour so it's a great way to get insight into great food in Fira. Highly recommend this tour.

Nick was an incredible guide, with tons of knowledge about Santorini and Greek history. We went to several great locations for photographs, and he explained the significance of everything we saw. The winery and the monastery were highlights for us, and we left the tour feeling like we had left no stone unturned on this beautiful island. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for cultural insight as much as picturesque locations.

Ari was just amazing! This was without a doubt the best tour I have ever been on! The food was great, the restaurants were great, the rest of the tour group were wonderful. No getting on and off a tour bus! We walked a short distance between 2 connected towns on the Caldera stopping at restaurants and taverns. If you only do one tour this is it! We were definitely full of great food. Thank you Ari!

Truly catered to our family of 4–my husband and I and our two twenty something daughters; including things that we wanted to see and skipping those that we preferred not to see. natalia was Fantastic!!

This was a great way to see everything on the island in a short time, and Minas was super friendly and knowledgeable!
