During the 1-hour tour you will walk through this well-preserved city, be impressed by its edifices and learn all the impressive facts about it along with your professional tour guide.

After that, you will have a wine tasting experience full of tastes and aromas at three of the most outstanding wineries of the island. At the traditional Megalochori village you’ll visit the first modern winery of Santorini, Boutari Winery, where you can taste five different wines not only from Santorini, but from all over the world. At the same village lies Gavalas Winery where you can take a tour around its cellars and admire its 17th century Russian oak barrels. Next, at Episkopi Gonia village, you’ll try five different wines at a state-of-the-art winery, Estate Argyros. All in all, you will take pleasure in 12 wine varieties of the volcanic island, including the famed Assyrtiko, Vinsanto and Nykteri.

Those who want to take a cooking lesson and have a small introduction to the Greek cuisine can choose the 8-hour tour which includes a visit to Artemis Karamolegos Winery, a modern winery located in Exo Gonia village that offers striking views. Finally, those who wish to spend less time on a tour and are only interested in the wine tasting experience can take a 4-hour tour to Boutari, Gavalas and Estate Argyros wineries and enjoy the different wine varieties accompanied by delectable side dishes.

Wonderful experience

I had the most fantastic experience on May 28th. It was an unexpected bonanza of sightseeing a traveler can only dream of. Thanks for the amazing experience Katie! I was signed up for a short 1.5 hour tour of Akrotiri. First off, only Notos Travel was the offering this tour to solo travelers. When I got on the tour bus my tour guide Katie offered me the option of extending to a whole-day sightseeing tour of Santorini at no extra cost. I jumped at the offer and had a wonderful experience. Katie took us through all the beautiful sights of the island providing us interesting insights into the history and culture of the island along the way in addition to teaching us the best way to enjoy the sights. She patiently answered all our questions cheerfully with her encyclopedic knowledge of Santorini. Thanks Katie ! You are the best!
