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.

We had a great time with George and Family. During the market tour we got to try local products and learn more about them and Corfu. Back at George’s house, we had a very enjoyable time preparing the ingredients and everyone was included. The meal was fantastic and the company was great. We would highly recommend this experience.

Our guide was lovely and really knowledgeable about Corfu and it’s history and took us to see some places off the beaten track. The food was excellent authentic and delicious. I’d definitely recommend this tour but don’t eat before there is a lot of food

It was a fantastic tour but come on an empty stomach. There is much to sample and enjoy. And, the grande finale meal was delicious. Our tour guide was gracious and accommodating. Extremely happy with everything.

Book this experience!!! It was the most interesting thing we did in Corfu! George is an amazing guide and the whole team is wonderful. We learned so much!
