    My husband and I had a wonderful time. Nick was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the wines and wine making process. We visited three wineries, each with 4 tastings plus a plate of snacks at each. We had a blast on this tour and I would highly recommend!

    This tour was amazing! The tour guide was extremely friendly, and informative as well. I really enjoyed learning about the intricacies of wine tasting, and the food pairings that went along with them, all on the backdrop of some amazing views, and an overall warm and pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended!

    We did the day tour and visited Boutari, Venetsanos and Hatzidakis Wineries. Each was unique and beautiful. The food pairings were spot on and all of the wines were delicious. We also visited a vineyard to learn about how Greek wine is made which was neat and helped us learn more about the region and history. And our guide Maria was AMAZING. Can't recommend enough!
