We booked this activity as a way to have a bit more say over our VERY short cruise stop on Corfu. Our guide Markos was very accommodating, understood our wishes for a relaxing beach day with a bit of sightseeing and customized a perfect day for us. He met us at the port with a really nice, comfortable van. Shared all kinds of interesting historical facts with us along the way and made sure that everything went smoothly for a very-relaxing, stress free day. The only problem with our tour is that now we ALL want to come back to this beautiful place as he did such a great job giving us perfect glimpse into what time on this island could be. Thank you!!

Our guide in English explained many things to us and told us about the place's curiosities. Fantastic tour, organized according to our needs. All perfect.

Marcos was a great guide. We drove several places on the island and my daughters really enjoyed the beach swim and monastery.

Cristina nasia Was great. Everything worked like clockwork. We really enjoyed her service. Highly recommend it.

A wonderful tour with a great guide. 4 hours was the right amount of time and we saw so much!
