We (family of 4 with kids aged 12 and 10) had a great day. We packed loads in and thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Highly recommend. The guide (Ducha - spelling may not be right sorry!) was fantastic. We saw so much of the island that we definitely would have missed were it not for this tour. Thanks x

Martin was brilliant. We had the best experience. He is knowable, a great driver, and flexible in situations dealing with crowds. We saw more than expected and ate a version of the Kefelonia pie which he purchased just for us to try. Highly recommend.

Great to be transported to the bus stop. So many amazing stop offs / photo opportunities and a good amount of time to enjoy them. The only negative was sooooo many pick ups at the start of the day.

Excellent value for money, boutique (possibly private) exclusive small group, George our tour guide is great, professional and attentive!

Isadora was excellent. The scenery was spectacular. The wine was delicious.
