I booked a 6pm tour in mid-June. My husband and I were the only ones who signed up, so we had a private tour with a very knowledgeable guide through the maze-like streets of old town Corfu. The sun didn’t set till about 9pm so it was a really nice and relaxing way to learn and navigate this area in the evening. Like other places in Greece, the transition from day to night was a whole other experience. There was a lot of food on this tour, we were so full. It was a wonderful way to spend the evening after our arrival earlier in the day.

My guide was awesome. When I was running a little late she waited on me. She was patient even though I was slower paced than she was because of a bad hip. She let me stop and rest as needed. Her knowledge of the history and the culture was wonderful. I learned so much. She took me to some beautiful spots. The tour was a lot of fun! She was an excellent guide, so I highly recommend this tour! Aloha, Happy travels!

Absolutely stellar. Tour was just our group of three, which meant that it was personalized and casual. I definitely believe this is one of the best ways to learn about Corfu and get a sense of its history, culture and current way of life. The food was phenomenal at every stop, as well. Highly, highly recommend this tour.

This walking and food tour with Nausica was AMAZING! Excellent food with an even better guide. Saw some really great Corfu Town sites and tasted local foods. Well worth the money and would highly recommend.

Ariti was a wonderful guide! We loved all the food--make sure you go on an empty stomach!
