This was a great excursion. We stopped at a shop first selling sweets, olive oil and wine. Then we went to two monasteries. These were spectacular and a bonus to see. The winery was nice and five different tastes of wine. We then went to the two caves. These are amazing. At Melissani cave the boat men tell you all about the history and you even get some singing from them, which was very pleasant. We took an hours drive to Fiskardo. Along the harbour are several shops and restaurants. A stop for a bite to eat was nice and we watched all the boats come and go. The last stop was Myrtos beach you actually look down from the cliff tops. This was also amazing. The guide tells you all about the history of Kefalonia this was good to know and so informative. The driving did a great job. The roads are so winding and very scary in parts. Great day and would recommend

Vanna our guide was extremely informative and made the experience very pleasurable, the North of kefalonia is very traditional and very beautiful, Fiscardo and assos are the type of destinations you want to go back to see time and time again very much a snapshot in time serene and unspoilt.
