What people are saying about Megalochori
This was the most unforgettable experience. Anna was an unbelievable guide who educated us on the unique wine making in Santorini from the basket vineyards to wine tasting in Gavals and Venesantos Wineries. We walked through the village of Megalochori and discussed early Santorini history and village life. After wine tasting at Gavalas in the middle of the village, we were driven to an agricultural area where local tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers are uniquely grown. We then had a cooking lesson making traditional fava dip, tomato fritters, Greek salad, and local cooked vegetables. Afterwards we sat outside eating what we cooked and drinking wine and dancing to Greek music with Petra (who owns the farm). Then we were driven to Vensantos Winery overlooking the Caldera with the stunning views. Anna made the tour so wonderful and we left with a hug. Tasso drove us back to our place and even stopped in Firá for a quick order of loukoumades. All in all, the most incredible tour.
We booked our tour for our first day in Santorini and couldn’t have asked for a better first day! The BBQ on the catamaran was excellent and the staff on board were very hospitable! However, the best part of our trip was yet to come! Once on land our tour guide Joanna took us to different wineries and different tourist spots on the island- she was amazing! Her insider knowledge and dedication to getting us the perfect photo was second to none! She ensured we had the best experience and honestly we couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide- she made our trip! Would 100% recommend!
Completing all 3 activities in one day was too much. There's also no real place for you to change and freshen up after the Catamaran tour and change attire for the rest of the day. They offer the wine tasting and sunset tour separately without the Catamaran tour. I would recommend skipping out on this tour and do the wine tasting and sunset tour separate from the Catamaran boat tour.
Absolutely beautiful tour and even better guide!
The tower was amazing! We had a fantastic time and saw some really gorgeous stuff. Our tour guide, Grigoris I believe, was the best guide we’ve had on any tour! So knowledgeable, very personable, funny and informative. We really enjoyed him and the tour! You won’t be sorry! Beautiful views, great history and fantastic photo ops!
Joanna was great! I learned so much about the wines of Santorini and a lot more. Also Joanna was super passionate about everything including making we got all the best photos taken!
