based on 2 reviews

We stopped at two wineries, Mylonas and Papagiannakos, and they were both very good, with great wines and nice people. We particularly enjoyed Papagiannakos, and ended up buying some of their wine to take back to our hotel. The sommelier, Stefanos, was very generous with his time, his knowledge, and his good humour, and that all made for a very enjoyable tour and tasting. Lunch by the seaside was nice too, and we got to know our tour guide (Spyros) better... he gave us a recommendation for a wine bar in Athens (Oinoscent) which we enjoyed visiting as well, and followed up by sending us more information about Greek wine once we were home. This tour was top notch.

This wine and history tour exceeded our expectations! Spyros was in contact with us from the moment we booked until the day of our tour. The private tour allowed us to have dedicated attention and learn so much about Greece history and Greek wines. We can’t wait to book another tour on our next trip to Greece!

Punctual driver, very friendly and enthusiastic guide who told me lots of interesting facts, beautiful drive along the coast, great view at the lake and the Temple of Poseidon. I am glad I booked this tour.
