This must be the best tour I have ever done. You get to see all the main attractions of the island and explore the caves and beaches around Kefalonia with a great guide. The visit to the vineyard is amazing as you’re surrounded by an incredible landscape while tasting some of the best wine I have ever had. The organization of the tour is impeccable!

This tour was amazing! Private and way better than going with my cruise line! They made sure we got back in time and went above and beyond for us! Elena and Devin were a great team and made us fall in love with the city.

It was an amazing trip with Dani (tour guide). He was very kind and explained history and showed so many nice places with beautiful views.I liked the cave and lake. I really enjoy time in Kefalonia.

这次旅程非常开心,为我们开车的师傅也非常友好,很早就到酒店来接我们,一天行程中也积极与我们交流,给我们介绍当地的历史文化。由于是定制的行程,师傅按照我们的意愿稍微修改了原定路线,把我们希望可以游览的部分都看到了。这里真是一个很美丽的小岛,游客不多,饭很好吃还便宜,当地人都很友好。非常推荐大家来玩。
