Interesting mix of history and wine

I had not fully appreciated the degree of history this tour would encompass. Perhaps I had not looked beyond the word ‘winery’ that turned out to be an excellent lunch stop at the Vassaltis Vineyard with the very knowledgable and personable Maria. I had not appreciated that this tour would include a visit to Santorini’s very own Pompeii and the on going excavations of what was a Bronze Age sophisticated town. There were additional stops at the coast and to see existing hill top towns and settlements. Some walking is required so sensible shoes are a must - along with a good sense of humour. Our driver and guide Zac provided much warmth, wit and local knowledge. He was also a safe and considerate driver. Definitely a highly recommended day trip. , A great experience!, Well organized!, Our guide was awesome!
