My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to do a wine tour whilst in Santorini that would be a little more intimate than the standard Santorini wine tour. Phenix did not disappoint. We were picked up with 3 other people near our hotel and taken to 3 different wineries. Phenix was a lovely host, very welcoming, bubbly and knew ALOT... More

We had a great day with Phenix taking us around 3 wineries and introducing us to the joys of Santorini wines. Phenix was great company and her knowledge of the wines and the island history was fantastic. This is a tour you should not miss.

The wine and cookery tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Santorini! Phenix was highly knowledgeable about the wines of the region and took us to 2 fabulous vineyards where we tasted several different local varieties. The 20 year old Vinsantos...woah!!! She picked us up and dropped us off at our accommodation and was very flexible in... More

Wonderful tour with Phoenix! My husband and I live an hour away from Napa in CA, so our standards are pretty high. She was very knowledgeable about wine and you can tell she really has a passion for it. She took us to some great places(& will cater to your preferences). We learned about wine, Santori and were able to... More

I found this tour to be worth it-it was educational and lots of fun. Phenix has lived on the island for 20+ years and was very knowledgable. Personally, I found it insightful to have the perspective of a North American who has spent many years in Greece. She knew all about the wine process, wines, and wineries (the grape vines... More

We were pleasantly surprised when our small group tour turned into a private excursion. Instead of cancelling or rescheduling our tour, Phenix picked my husband and I up and wowed us for several hours. She accomodated extra stops to take scenic photos and was a wealth of knowledge. We learned not only about wine but more about Greek history than... More
