My guide was awesome. When I was running a little late she waited on me. She was patient even though I was slower paced than she was because of a bad hip. She let me stop and rest as needed. Her knowledge of the history and the culture was wonderful. I learned so much. She took me to some beautiful spots. The tour was a lot of fun! She was an excellent guide, so I highly recommend this tour! Aloha, Happy travels!

One of the best tours you can get in Corfu! This tour and tour guide Ariti left a great impression on us, bringing us through the Old Town, as well as The Fortress. The guide herself is unimaginably friendly, and kind and even gave suggestions on our further stay. The tour was easily understandable and had the perfect duration, with the inclusion of a short coffee break. The feeling is like walking with a friend, so we highly recommend it! <3
