based on 9 reviews

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.

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.

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.
