My family and I have done a fair amount of traveling, and because of Your Greek Friend, our Greece vacation has quickly shot to the top of the list for best trips taken. Demetris was a superb planner and made sure everything ran smoothly, from recommending restaurants, organizing tours, ordering food at restaurants, driving, he did it all. Our two other tour guides Ruth and vangelis were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. In Santorini, Ruth and Demetri showed us all around the Island. We had a great tour of Oia and the Argyros winery. They even treated us to a homemade Greek lunch at a local woman home. For me, the food was the best part, and without them their to take us to the small local gems, it wouldn't have been half as good. Vangelis and Demetri took us on an amazing tour of Crete, where Vangelis dazzled and educated us on the Mycenaean and Minoan civilizations and all the wonders that Crete has to offer. They even took us to a to a small hidden village paradise which you will have to contact them to hear more about! It was a truly once in a life time trip and it wouldn't have been anywhere near as good without Your Greek Friend leading the way. By the end of the trip, we truly felt like we had become great friends with Ruth, Vangelis and Demetris, they really did become OUR GREEK FRIENDS. They were so kind and thoughtful and you could tell they truly spend time hand tailoring an experience just for us. It is so wonderful to not have to worry about planning things because they took care of it all and we couldn't of been happier with how it turned out. When we go back, you better believe we will be using OUR Greek Friend.

We pretty much always get a driver when touring a new city and this by far was one of the best experiences we have had. Ruth and Dimitri were GREAT! They were so knowledgable and friendly. Gave us a fantastic tour - complete with private wine tasting and Anna's food farm. I would highly recommend Your Greek Friend to all who visit Santorini and want to not only be treated like royalty but have a fun-filled, relaxing day.

When I asked Dimitri how he came upon the name of his tour biz he told me "it's because when you go to visit a friend they take you to all the places THEY like!"

They do ask your interests and the tours are always customizable. Indeed when you are finished it will be hard to say goodbye to your new friends Dimitri and Ruth. Lovely, personable and great knowledge.

Thank you Ruth and Dimitri for an incredible day! We so thoroughly enjoyed our time on the island and saw so much others wouldn't have seen. This was the highlight of our trip! We'll be back! Next time...a cooking lesson! Loved the local food at Anna's!

Probably the best way to see the island as not only do you get driven around in comfort but Ruth and Dimitris are so knowledgable of the island and extremely personable. They will take you to wherever you want to go on the island or they are happy to suggest places to visit based on the the kind things you find interesting. Ruth was a fountain of knowledge throughout the tour and was always happy to answer any questions. Our trip was very varied, from visiting the ruins at Ancient Thera and Akrotiri to a winery and the highest point on the island! Nothing was too much trouble and we had a brilliant time, would highly recommend.
