Overall rating

4.6
(75 reviews)

This trip was very well organised by the local tour company and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide was a lovely, warm and friendly lady who gave an excellent commentary throughout the bus rides. The trip was well paced. We never got bored and never felt rushed either. Fiskardo and Assos were stunning, as was the view of Myrtos beach. The Melissani and Dragorati experiences are well worth adding for only 13 Euro per person combined. There were plenty of breaks for the loo or drinks and we didn’t feel herded around as there was plenty of free roaming time. The only mix up was a Get Your Guide issue with trip timings but the local tour company made sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend this trip as you will see all the Kefalonian highlights within 8 hours. We were a family with 2 teenagers who also enjoyed it.

Our driver & guide for the day were an amazing team (Maria & Stavros) They helped us make the most out of our day while covering everything we really wanted to do We learnt a lot along the way about Kefalonia & they were fantastic at answering all the questions we had Fantastic day that I would recommend to anyone

Amazing trip from start to finish. George was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area. We couldn’t fault the service he provided. We look forward to our next trip in Kefalonia.

The day trip was amazing, our tour guide Katarina was so enthusiastic and fantastic. The whole experience went smoothly I couldn’t have asked for a better tour.

Brilliant experience, easy to organise pick up,bus was comfortable and very friendly guide. Definitely recommend booking
