“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I could not recommend this service more! Our family of 5 adults booked an 8 hour tour as their suggested itinerary sounded just a wonderful way to start our holiday - and it was! Ruth and Dimitris were the perfect hosts and tailored the day to suit everyone. We started with wine tasting that was both delicious and very interesting. We then visited the oldest church on the island en route to the beach for a swim and a tasty lunch in a beach taverna. We visited the ancient site of Akrotiri and tasted some local farm produce. The day ended perfectly with cocktails from the highest point in Pyros. In addition, Ruth and Dimitris were such good company.

“Bucket List!!!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We booked this tour as an alternative to the cruise ship excursions and are sooo glad we did!! Ruth and Dimitris were truly our greek friends for the day!!! They took us to places that you only see in magazines. From the amazing walk through Oia to the delicious lunch at the black beach this by far was the best day of our whole trip. Like other reviewers have mentioned just tell them what you like and dislike..if there are any and they will make your day memorable. I cant say enough good things about our new greek friends and their company. Do not hesitate to spend the day with them.

“Outstanding tour - Unique in every way!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We booked at the last minute, boy were we lucky!!! Ruth & Dimitiris tailored the tour to our tastes and interests. So be sure to give them an idea of your likes, interests etc and plan on a full day, but shorter trips can be arranged - but once you start exploring and discovering Santorini this way, you will want more so give yourself adequate time.

Dimitris drove the car (he is a very safe and good driver) and he took candid shots of our trip which he sent to us!!!, Meanwhile, Ruth told us about the Island, its history, the people and their lifestyle & traditions. Dimitris pitched in on the local information and made sure we tasted the most delicious, fresh off the tree figs. We stopped at a local fishing harbor, a farm where we could taste the variety of locally produced foods (include this on your tour), had a wine tasting - I must say I am huge fan of the Santorini wines (especially the white wines and dessert wines), we swam in a beautiful beach, dined at a delicious beachside restaurant, visited a beautiful village we never would have found on our own and topped it off with a sunset. This takes you off the beaten tourist path and into real life, real beauty, real food OUTSTANDING COMPANY!!!! They are your Greek Friends, kind, funny, pleasant, interesting, good people.

“Thank you Greek Friends”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

A friendly and relaxed day, visiting some very curious spots that I would never have found on my own. The opportunity to try some homemade raki by the sea and talk to the locals about their island. A different insight that made my visit to Santorini so much more than a few days in a beautiful sunny place. I recommend it to anyone who wants more than a postcard experience of Santorini.
