We were lucky enough to be able to experience a quasi-private tour, since no one else had signed up. Nevertheless, the tour took place as planned and our guide even took us half an hour longer through the city. Three hours packed with beautiful alleys, an incredible amount of information about the past and today's life on the island, including great tips on what we should eat after the tour. We tried everything and it was delicious! We would book the tour again and again! Her German was excellent, you understood her very well and were friendly anyway. All in all it was a perfect tour of the island's capital.

Amazing value! The tour was really well organised meaning we could just relax and enjoy the day. The sights you get to see are brilliant and our guide was excellent. Would definitely recommend a sun hat if you're not used to the heat as you're in thr sun a lot.

Amazing tour. Great way to experience the history, culture and flavours of Corfu. Our guide couldn't have been better, would definitely recommend as a way to make your visit more memorable. Make sure you are hungry! Thank you from Georgina and Philip.
