One of the best tours you can get in Corfu! This tour and tour guide Ariti left a great impression on us, bringing us through the Old Town, as well as The Fortress. The guide herself is unimaginably friendly, and kind and even gave suggestions on our further stay. The tour was easily understandable and had the perfect duration, with the inclusion of a short coffee break. The feeling is like walking with a friend, so we highly recommend it! <3

The tour was very interesting, informative and involved different kind of activities from walking and exploring history and present of Corfu till trying delicious local foods and drinks. Our guide, Nausica, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive and very helpful. She gave us a lot of information and tips about the island and things to do in the next days also. Thank you so much for giving your time to show us beautiful Corfu town.
