We signed up for the Food and Wine tasting with her and we are extremely happy with how our day turned out. Phenix was a very fun and informative tour companion! We are pretty much newbies to wine tasting but she showed us what to do and how to do it and because she does small groups only we didn't... More

I signed up for the wine & cooking tour with two friends and we had the best time! Phenix is an amazing tour guide and very knowledgeable of the island - we learned a lot about Greek wine, Greek food and the history of Santorini. The wines were fantastic (at both vineyards) and the cooking class was so fun. After... More

My husband and I signed up for Phenix's wine and cooking tour during our honeymoon. There were only two other people on the tour and we had a great time tasting & learning about wines with Phenix, who then dropped us off at a restaurant in Kamari for the cooking class. We got to eat dinner on the beach before... More

This tour has been the highlight of our trip to Santorini. Having done wine tours in any locations around the world, and having become fascinated with the quality of wines coming out of Santorini (and that's only those that make it out of Santorini) I searched for a guide to give us the experience we knew we wanted. I almost... More

My wife and I were on our honeymoon, and we opted to do a Mediterranean cruise that has a stop in Santorini. It was a full day stop (13 hours) and having family that had visited the island before, we wanted to make the best of it. We were advised to go with the Santo wines tour, but were a... More

This tour is a must see. Again, another owner-operator, who has lived in Santorini for over 20 years. Originally she ran a restaurant, as the chef, so she needed to learn about the local wines she would be serving. She also developed personal relationships with virtually all of the island's vintners. The result is an unparalleled wine tour. You get... More

My friend and I did the Food and Wine Tour in late August. Phenix came and collected us from our hotel and spent the whole afternoon with us! She was vibrant and easy to talk to, her passion shines through with her wealth of knowledge of both the island and the vineyards. Her experience as a chef, her love of... More

My wife and I booked the semi private food and wine tour. We lucked out and it ended up being just the 2 of us making it private! Phenix was a great host/guide. She is from the Bay Area but has lived in Santorini for 20+ years and therefore has great perspective and was able to relate to us well.... More

Phenix arrived at our hotel to collect us for what would be an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, learning about. and sampling the wines of Santorini. We visited three wineries, each one with its own appeal (foot pressing grapes at Gravalas, that would be something I would love to have a go at!), with tapas and a 20 year old... More

Phenix was very knowledgeable about the story of wine making in Santorini and every vineyard tasting stop was a dream come true... Her tour was truly a fabulous experience, and I can't wait to do it all over again soon! :-) :-)
