This was one of the highlights of our trip as it was a unique way to see Corfu. We were picked up by the owner (had to pay extra, but worth it). It is a family owed business. Which made it even more personal. We were able yo go to the beach. Spend about 40 minutes there and then up to the tallest mountain. It was a great ride. The view from the top allowed us to see all of Corfu. We were given a fairly large sandwich amd water while enjoying the view. It was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour!.

This tour was led by a true guide who shared her knowledge with our small group in a really friendly and helpful way. She took us into any shop or building that caught our interest while staying with the script on the food stops and tour through the old town. One tip- tell your cab driver that you are going to the old fortress entrance. If not he will drop you far short of your meet up and b.s. you that he can’t drive to that spot. It’s a common trick they pull.

This tour is amazing!! The food was incredible and the guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend for foodies and traditional tourists alike!

Great experience to travel round the island. Few stops for pictures and some lunch. Very enjoyable

Wonderful tour. Unique perspective on Corfu Town and great food to boot!
