My friends and I were in Athens following a cruise and wanted to do a wine tasting during our stay. We've taken several Tour Guy tours and have always been impressed and this tasting is no exception. Our tasting was on a Monday night so we had Theo all to ourselves. He was a wonderful teacher and host, showing us all sorts of new things about white and red Greek wines. I've done other tastings before but I need went away feeling like I learned something new. We had an absolute blast and feel like we increased our wine knowledge after this experience!
