Six hour tour with Ruth and Dimitri turned into 7.5 hour tour so that Ruth could show us another village she had spoken about. Everything about the day was perfect and it truly was like experiencing a day on Santorini with friends. Thanks to both of you for a perfect day.

Beyond photographing stunning white buildings all day, a top stay in Santorini will be actualised by delving slightly deeper into the island. This was achieved by our tour with Ruth and Dimitris - they were vibrant, knowledgeable, passionate, well-versed and utterly easy going. The day involved a delicious local lunch, great conversation and an insider view into magical parts of... More

Our ship docked at the area the high cliffs. There were 4 cruise ships that day, and the wait for the cable cars was I to I and a half hours. We took the speed boat, thinking we could avoid the cable car and 770 steps up. Wrong! Coming down we had to choose the long, long line of the... More

Our group of friends spent a wonderful afternoon with Your Greek Friend on a shore excursion. Ruth was great to work with to make arrangements via e-mail. Dimitris and Evangeli knew exactly where to take us to see the island and avoid crowds. We were able to visit two wineries, see the unique way grapes are grown, and taste amazing... More

It's one of the hardest acts to manage: how to go around sightseeing, and yet know what is worth looking at and what is best avoided beforehand. Usually this takes a lot of reading and preparation, which can make vacations appear like work. So we were very pleased to find 'Your Greek Friend' for our small group of friends, which... More

My husband and I booked a full day tour. Ruth and Demetrius were warm and knowledgable hosts. We gave them a little background information on ourselves when we booked and they ran with it. We started the day with them picking us up at our hotel in their Jeep, we drove to the middle of the island and got out... More

As my mother and I got off our cruise to meet Ruth and Dimitri we thought there was no way we would be able to see everything we wanted in Santorini in just 8 hours, but, boy, were we wrong. Not only did we see everything Santorini had to offer, we saw it through the VIP experience. It was the... More

Ruth & Dimitris are the BEST friends to have in Greece! They will literally become your instant friends simply by their warm, genuine personalities. I had the pleasure of having dinner with them, where Dimitris was an expert at ordering a full array of dishes to try, and also introducing me to a new favorite drink. At the end of... More
