The four of us had a great time, crew were really good fun. Drink & food plentiful, the Sunset was great & swimming off the boat was enjoyed by several onboard. Sat with some lovely people, a couple had just got engaged that morning, two girls from France (one was celebrating her birthday) so everyone was in high spirits & it really made the trip. Would highly recommend.

This must be the best tour I have ever done. You get to see all the main attractions of the island and explore the caves and beaches around Kefalonia with a great guide. The visit to the vineyard is amazing as you’re surrounded by an incredible landscape while tasting some of the best wine I have ever had. The organization of the tour is impeccable!

What a fantastic way to see the beautiful island of Kefalonia. The whole trip was brilliant. The schedule was clear and well structured. Our guide Katerina was amazing - such a knowledgeable and beautiful person. The food in Fiskardo was lovely with a table right on the harbour. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough - a must do

Really good experience, the description met expectations. Had unlimited wine which was a nice touch and the different stop off points all had something different about them. Finished at 5 which was a perfect time go off and enjoy the evening. The lunch was a reasonable size and was of good quality.

This is a nice experience to have at the beginning of your stay in Kefalonia. The hosts were really nice and funny, the food was good and we got to enjoy every beach we visited. I would definitively recommend this experience.
