Christos was absolutely amazing!! We spent several hours on the sunrise tour, and it was very well worth waking up at 5am. Christos picked us up exactly at the scheduled time, and took us to our first spot where he helped us set up our cameras and taught us about different settings and how to capture the best shots. We took some pictures of the sunrise over one of the monasteries and then proceeded to make several stops throughout the tour. Christos shared some great photography tips with us and was also full of interesting facts and stories. To end the tour, he took us to shoot a monastery that was not visible from the main road, which in my opinion, provided the best views of the tour. Also, our luggage was lost on the way to Greece and our tripod was in there, and he and his company was nice enough to let us borrow a tripod the night before and they even dropped it off at our hotel.

I absolutely loved this experience. I was quite nervous at first, but I felt very comfortable with Christos very quickly. He talked me through different poses and it was lovely getting to know him. I loved the photos he sent over and I couldn't be happier! I would highly recommend this experience.

Very nice tour where you could see the monasteries from different angles. Knowledgeable and very friendly guide.
