Yes, you read correctly. A Perfect Tour (APT) is organizing a once in a lifetime tour to Greece this year – June 21st to 29th to be exact!

Why is it a once in a lifetime tour? Well not only will those on the tour get a unique look at Athens and the Greek volcanic island of Santorini, they will also be accompanied by John Szabo, one of Canada’s most well-known Master Sommeliers (and the first Canadian to become a Master Sommelier in 2004).

John, who is also a journalist and author, is an authority on volcanic wines including those produced on Santorini – he has written a book about these wines which you may want to buy as it is an informative mix of geology, volcanism, history and the relationship between soil and the wine it gives life to. He will be using his passion for and knowledge of these wines to guide wine and food pairings as well provide those on the tour an insider’s perspective of what these wines offer.

This tour is going to be more than the usual wine, food and sight seeing tour. You will not only get exclusive insight from John Szabo, MS, but also sample the food of top chefs including Michelin Star chef, Lefteris Lazarou. Born in Piraeus to a father who worked as a ship-chef, Lefteris is a pioneer of creative seafood cooking and has retained a Michelin star for 16 consecutive years which is quite the distinction. On top of this you will sample wine with some of Greece’s best winemakers and learn how they make the wines they do.

And if you want to cap of this once in a lifetime tour with more sun and surf, there is the Ios option which will provide a luxurious experience and this:
