    I'm not one to normally go out of my way to write a review but I just thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Lefteris as our driver/guide, he and the tour were both fantastic! From the moment he picked us up we felt like we were just hanging out with a friend, a very lucky friend that happens to live in Santorini of course! We felt like we got a great overview of the entire island without missing any of the highlights and Lefteris gave us lots of invaluable insider tips and insights that we were able to use during the rest of our stay, which was incredibly helpful and really makes taking his tour extremely worthwhile and a great value. We truly felt like locals during our entire stay because we were so well informed by Lefteris, and the advice and suggestions he offered us were totally spot on. We can’t recommend taking a tour with Blue Shades of Greece highly enough, so be like a local and book this tour!

Konstantina was a great teacher. She was able to help both of us get the best shot despite having two different camera brands. She drove us around to different locations to get the best light and a variety of shots. And as a bonus we stopped at a wonderful bakery for coffee and delicious pastry.

Nicol was an amazing guide. He showed us everything we wanted to see, he took great pictures for us at the most beautiful spots. He told us history of the island as we drove around. I was very happy we decided to book this tour. I highly recommend. Thank you for an amazing day!

What a great experience I had, the organization level was top. Not only did they work with my schedule but Max took the best photos of me. I would highly recommend them and hiring a photographer on vacation is a must!
