Full description
Get stunning views of the Venetian castles in the Old Town of Corfu as you set sail and head south along the Kanoni Peninsula. Pass the palace of Mon Repo and the towns of Perama, Benitses and Kavos as you sail towards Cape Asprokavos. Get a magnificent view of the olive and cypress trees that cover Paxos, formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with his trident to create an idyllic retreat for Amphitrite - according to legend! Reach the unspoiled northern side of Paxos and enter the natural bay of Lakka. Stroll the narrow streets of the traditional village, or take a short walk to the beaches to swim and sunbathe.

This was an incredibly complete tour! At about 50 euros you get a 10 hour experience! They give you cute talks about what you are passing by, take you to wonderful spots, give you time at each place - then on the way home bust out w the DJ, music and dancing. Finally to wind you down they bring in a couple of Greek dancers who close it off! You can bring your own food but they also have a bar plus some food and snacks for sale.

Great experience throughly enjoyed the whole itinerary in terms of value for money it’s great! Only downside for me were how busy the boat and waters were there were a total of 3 large ships that all go together and when arriving at these beautiful locations you barely got a second to enjoy the view before another ship anchors up right next to you. Such a shame if you struggle with social anxiety I’d highly recommend you find a private or smaller boat to visit these beautiful spots!

Esperienza consigliatissima! Tour ben organizzato, a partire dalla guida che nella tappa di Paxos (dove ci siamo fermati per circa 2 ore) ci ha dato delle mappe sui percorsi per raggiungere alcune spiagge dell’Isola. Questa fungeva anche da tappa per pranzare, ma una volta tornati sulla barca hanno fatto un barbecue quindi si poteva tranquillamente mangiare una volta risaliti. Mentre raggiungevamo le destinazioni la guida spiegava alcune attrazioni visibili dalla barca, arrivati alla tappa di Antipaxos abbiamo fatto il bagno e siamo rimasti li per circa 1 ora. Consigliamo di portarvi una giacca se fate il tour in questo periodo, quando siamo andati noi c’era un sacco di vento e sulla prua faceva abbastanza freddo. L’unica cosa che non ci ha convinti molto è il fatto che si trascorre tanto tempo in barca e sarebbe più bello invece fare qualche tappa in più, cambiando alcune tempistiche. Il ritorno è passato in fretta perché hanno intrattenuto con la musica e ballavano tutti.
