"We LOVED your "Seeing the Light" tour in Santorini! Coming home with such amazing photos was such a treat. Thank you so much for helping us adjust our camera settings and learn to really use light and shooting angles to make our photos come to life. You were so enthusiastic yet (fortunately) patient with us, and we really appreciated your taking us to a variety of scenic locations. We hope to return soon!"
Nancy & Terry, USA

"Wow! We had such a great time with you! I don't think we could have found so many places to shop in such a short time. Exactly what we wanted. Thank you!"
Jen & Bob D, USA

"We just got back from our cruise and I am currently downloading almost 2000 pictures!!! I'm so glad the tour with you was at the start of our trip. Now I'm so excited to see how my pictures turned out! I will definitely send some photos your way for you to see and criticize.
I also would like to thank you Judy for bringing us to that artwork shop in Santorini. We actually came back and bought 2 paintings as souvenirs. Hope to join you again in the years to come. I have already given your website to friends who were interested.
Have a great day!"
Leila M, USA

"...my sister and I really enjoyed our cruise, and spending the morning with you on Santorini was one of the highlights of our trip. What a fun time, and a perfect mix of sights, shopping, and coffee..."
Barbara & Colleen, Canada

"Shopping for a living - what a perfect job for you (highly envious!). Thanks for showing me the best of Santorini. Hugs!"
Maria H, UK

"During our time in Santorini, Judy showed us the Island and we absolutely loved our time there. Because she knows the place so well, we saw a lot. She showed us beautiful scenery, stunning sea views, high quality art galleries, marvelous shops, wonderful beaches and rock formations, great cafes, magnificent restaurants and much more. A week was not long enough to do justice to such an amazing island, but thanks to Judy we saw so much more than we could have managed on our own. We won’t forget our time in Santorini, especially the hidden treasures that Judy took us to. We will be back! Thank you so much."
Helen and Bernard, New Zealand

Santorini: A picture of Greek gorgeousness!


Huddled white houses snuggling together perched on sheer cliffs with dramatic sea views... breathtaking!

Shopping districts amidst cascading hot pink Bougainvillea. Cobbled lanes to explore... unique artisan creations around every turn.

Food - delectable, fabulous flavours, lovingly prepared using home-grown produce...

Wine and beer - small yields and highly sought after - crafted locally. Grapes are grown on the island using techniques developed over generations, perfectly suited to the hostile growing conditions.

Hidden villages - full of character and charm. Weathered blue doors, white walls, churches sprinkled throughout. Old Venetian ruins, winding lanes... there's so much to explore and photograph!

The Caldera - a scene so awe-inspiring and majestic that no photograph can do it justice. You have to see and experience it yourself.

The traditions - the Greek Orthodox church still plays an important role in the everyday lives of the people. There's feast days, weddings, baptisms and regular services. The Easter celebrations are amazing too, especially in the village of Pyrgos. There's over 450 churches on the island, and they are beautiful!! Life revolves around family, food, and church.

Santorini is a full-on assault to the senses!! There's so much to see, to explore, to discover. So much to taste, to devour, and to enjoy. It really is one of the best places in the world to visit...

How long will I need? I am asked this a lot, and the best answer I can give you as an example is when my parents-in-law visited recently. I spent a week showing them around Santorini, and even with that amount of time, we didn't get to see everything. There's a lot to see and do!

Contact me by email to enquire about your time exploring on Santorini.

ti smallI am extremely lucky to live on the island, I moved here from the U.K with my Greek husband Ilias. He introduced me to the tasty cuisine, the history, the Greek products, the natural beauty and of course the luxury shopping. It was our dream to move here and the people of Santorini have welcomed us with open arms and I am slowly learning the Greek language.

I am excited to show you what Santorini has to offer, I wish to share with you all of the wanders to ensure that your holiday/vacation is unforgettable.

I enjoy it when clients find something that they love on the island, a unique piece of art painted by a local artist, an item of handmade jewellery or they taste an unforgettable Greek dish for the first time

Would you like to spend time in the boutiques, drink fine wine, (or coffee), taste the Greek cusine and visit sublime art galleries? Are you looking for something unusual for a special occasion, an item that is unique only to you? Most items can be shipped to your home, if there isn’t enough room in your suitcase! I can organise this for you.

I guarantee that you will have an unforgettable experience and I will endeavour to accommodate all of your requirements.
