I always make my travel reservations months in advance. This time, I booked with CORFU TRAVELLER and had the pleasure of being guided by the fantastic tour guide, ALEXANDRA KARDAKARI, only two days before arriving in Corfu as another tour company had cancelled on me. I am so glad that things happened this way, as this tour was outstanding and made our day in Corfu memorable. Our capable driver, Yannis, was very courteous, and his shiny Mercedes was comfortable. Alexandra was very knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. She had interesting stories about the island, which were seasoned with history and gossip. Thank you, Alexandra and Yannis, for a perfect day. I hope to see you both again someday soon, and I will recommend that all my friends and family use your fantastic services while in Corfu.

Everything was exceptional! Yorgos was super kind, energetic and with a very good sense of humour that made us feel like a small group of friends. He also welcomed us into his home and made us feel like we were part of this family. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience (the shopping, the cooking and the jokes)! A big hug from your portuguese friend! <3

Our guide Alice was phenomenal! She was knowledgeable, personable and attentive. We learned so much about Corfu’s history. We sampled an extensive mix of the local food and beverages, including a beautiful lunch. We loved the small group (just 7 of us). It was the first Get Your Guide tour we have taken. I would highly recommend it!

We were lucky to have a group of 6 wonderful people each adding their unique experiences to our group leader, George whose accomplishments are far reaching and adding his discussions of about the Greek attitude to life. Wonderful people and food.

Great experience. Very welcomed, lovely home and hospitality. Would recommend.
