GREAT TIME IN CORFU !!!

We were personally met by Mr Charitos the owner of Charitos Travels who did a warm handover to our luxury van driver Nondez, that was a really nice touch ! Nondez actually turned out to have a very good command of English - he explained significant details of the places we passed by on our way to the sights which was helpful as reference points. We came from a cruise and had limited time to explore Corfu - thus we opted for a customized private tour so that we could pick the sights that we only wanted to visit and it all worked out... many thanks to our driver making it possible to keep us safe and on track :) We were able to visit Achilleion Palace... drive to Dassia for a sumptuous lunch at Andreas Restaurant... enjoy a swim in the excellent waters of Dassia Beach... we even had some leftover time walking around Corfu Old Town, such great fun !!

our driver spoke good german and undoubtedly drove us on the most beautiful way to the sissi castle. there he got the tickets and overcame one or the other language barrier for us. a round day
