Ruth and Dimitri, thank you both for the first-class service you both provided us! I can't stop talking to my friends and colleagues back home about you both and the pleasant surprise you gave us when you took us to a local village church celebrating St. Chrisopher's day. What a wonderful way to start our tour mingling with the locals. Top class! We thorougly enjoyed the varied sights, interesting facts and some tips on how to travel on our own. Thanks to you, we found our way back to Oia again and tried the eateries that you had recommended. You are right, the food was really good and reasonably priced. Thank you both very much.

Prior to visiting Santorini, I read many reviews for various private tour organizations and "Your Greek Friend" caught my eye...the name says it all! Ruth and Dimitris are amazing! Extremely friendly, flexible and accomodating throughout our entire tour. I was traveling with my two sons (ages 16 and 6) and wanted a tour that would incoroprate activities/sites that both would enjoy.....Ruth and Dimitris delivered without fail! We wanted a relaxed and "go with the flow" approach to our island tour and that is exactly what Ruth and Dimitris provided.....not to mention the incredible knowledge and details they shared as we traveled from one destination to the next.....history, environment, culture, economics, weather, trivia....etc. Ruth and Dimitris's passion and love of Santorini was expressed in all we encountered with them during our tour! It really was hard to say "good-bye" when our tour ended and we parted ways.....but Ruth and Dimitris provided me and my sons with beautiful and lasting memories of Santorini!

The decision to choose Greek Friends, Ruth and Demetris, as our tour guides was truly our "Cherry on Top" in Santorini! The were very warm and personable from the beginning, it was as if we were meeting up with old friends. Every moment of our personalized tour was truly amazing. We saw more than we planned and Ruth and Demetris's generosity went above and beyond our expectations! Ruth is a sweetheart. When I was having trouble with my camera, Ruth let me use hers. Demetris took pictures of us with his personal camera. At times we felt like we were at a photo shoot! We had so much fun together. It was not your typical tour, but one with great conversation as we shared a portion of our lives with one another. They were such a memorable blessing to our vacation, we will never forget!

Spectacular visit seeing Santorini through Ruth & Demetris's eyes. They were so warm & friendly - felt like we were on a tour with the family. What a day - we saw so much and enjoyed everything! Hope to see them again someday when we visit Santorini again.

Ruth and Demetris are not only the best tour guides I've ever had anywhere, but they quickly became true friends. We were all laughing together from the beginning on. My very full day tour (paid for 8 hours and got 10) covered everything: museums, archaeological sites, food (foregoing wine was my choice), villages, churches, and even time at the beach. They found me the best photography angles, including the perfect spot amid the crowds watching the sunset in Oia. They also arranged for an out-of-this-world guide for Akrotiri. The perfect pace meant that I didn't become exhausted until the very end of the day. Then I totally crashed out, with pleasant dreams of a remarkable day.

Don't let my laughter comment give the impression that Ruth and Demetris are anything less than professional. When they knew they were going to be a few minutes late to pick me up, they were thoughtful enough to call and let me know. They are also extremely thoughtful. Rather than let me lug around my day's purchases when I left them in Oia, they delivered them right to my hotel for me. It was a service I never would have thought of.
