I booked this experience to enhance our photography skills and tour parts of Santorini that otherwise we may not see. My wife was uncertain regarding the photography part of the excursion. However, Judy made her very comfortable from the initial introductions. Judy is an experienced professional photographer and that came across immediately. My wife was using her iPhone and I was using a Sony RX100. Judy was able to explain exposure compensation, ISO, histograms, Aperture vs Shutter vs Manual and how best to use all of these to get the best photos given the lighting conditions. She was able to explain these photography basics in a very simple way and have us understand and implement them within the first hour. The rest of our tour was taking different shots and having Judy review them pointing out how they could be improved. We were also able to visit certain areas of Santorini that most tourists never get to see.
I signed up for this tour, with the intention to take great photos, not commonly found on the standard tourist path. I was not disappointed. We caught the sunrise, visited two towns seeing classic local architecture, and did some portrait photography as well. The timing was good, since I was back from the tour by 10:30am.
Nickolas was such a great guide. His kindness he showed to my elderly mother was so appreciated. Santorini is beautiful and you can tell he loves his home island. He took us to a nice little winery for an evening snack and showed us parts of the island we didn't expect to see.
Nadia was an excellent tour guide and customized our tour to make sure we saw everything. We are lunch at a wonderful local place in a quiet village and enjoyed our time in Santorini
Our photographer Max was absolutely amazing and he made us both feel so comfortable. Would definitely recommend him to anyone!
