Nawsica was the perfect guide. I can highly recommend this to anyone wanting to know more about Corfu, it’s history and incredible food. She started out with asking what we knew and wanted. She then adapted the entire tour, on the spot, to our knowledge and interests and gave us the perfect introduction together with targeted advise and recommendations for the following days for food and culture. She also pointed out the best places for evening cocktails with unique Corfu ingredients. She was keen to ensure we would get the most out of our stay and avoid the worst tourist traps. Be prepared to eat a lot!

We truly enjoyed this tasting and historical tour. The guide was brilliant and mixed historical and personal anecdotes that brought Corfu to life in an interesting and friendly way. She also offered suggestions for further exploration and offered a way to contact her during our stay if need be. Restaurant was very good and we weren't charged for wine. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful views on this trip! Loved our guide!
