The team of Your Greek Friend can really make the difference during your stay in Santorini. If you wish to visit amazing places and areas, that is not possible to find as a visitor, if you wish to meet local persons, to taste real life of the island, then rust the team of YGF.

“A remarkable day with Our Greek Friend in Santorini”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

The day we spent with Dimitris and Ruth was the most memorable time we had in Santorini. We had a unique experience in Santorini touring the island with our greek friends. We met with Ruth the day before to discuss our interests and what we would like to do. It truly made a difference, we had a brilliant day, we would never have been able to find all the places we went if we had just hired a car and driven ourselves. also without them we would have been unable to communicate and experience the local lifestyle which is something we enjoy. We recommend a day out with this charming couple, it feels like you are being shown around by friends. The plans was to spend a 4 hour tour but we end up with 9 hour tour it realy was amazing and friendly tour.

“fantastic day out”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

We stayed in Santorini for 3 days and even though the views from our hotel were breath taking and we felt we could have stayed at the pool the whole time, my wife and I decided to spend one day experiencing the local lifestyle. We choose "Your Greek friend" as their rent-a-friend private tours seemed to offer the kind of relaxed and personal setting we were looking for. We are glad choose them.
We met with Ruth and Dimitris the day before to discuss our interests and what we would like to do. It truly made a difference, we had a brilliant day, we would never have been able to find all the places we went if we had just hired a car and driven ourselves. also without them we would have been unable to communicate and experience the local lifestyle which is something we enjoy.
We joined the locals for ouzo in the afternoon and tried the local delicacies where ever we went. We learn't a lot of local history and there were no language barriers.
We would very much recommend a day out with this charming couple, it feels like you are being shown around by friends.

We had an incredible time in Santorini with Dimitris and Ruth from Your Greek Friend. we started by getting a 4 hour tour but we did not wanted to end it so we ended up spending the full day in their company. it was our best day in the island. Thank you, we will recommend you to all our friends that come to visit Santorini.

“a different insight”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

It was great to see the island with people who live there and were able to answer our questions and tell us all kinds of stories about the place and the culture. They made an itinerary just for us, so we could see all the island but focuse on the things that were more interesting to us. I recommend it for anyone who wants more than a "been there, done that" snapshot view of Greece.
