Corfu is beautiful but this tour was basically a bus trip to a couple of average places and a shopping stop at the Kumquat store. Recommend a different tour if you want to see the real Corfu. We visited both the old and new forts on previous visits.
We visited a church, had a tour around the island and stopped to take photographs, then on to a meal in Kassiopi and a trip around the town. After that we had a scenic tour along the coast back to the ship. It was a good tour and enabled you to see a lot of the island.
Corfu town was lovely we arrived during a festival with marching bands, plate smashing etc it was a great experience. The vineyard gave a talk but the only thing we saw was a shed full of bottles. The food and wine was lovely but when buying bottles they gave us wine which was undrinkable and not what we had tasted. The monastery was not what was expected, there was a small chapel but to get to it you had to walk passed dozens of cats with various terrible injuries and the smell was awful. The views were beautiful outside the monastery.
Our original guy did NOT show up. Had done it through internet. Another driver talked to us...we went with him and were not disappointed. Took us everywhere...very nice experience. We renegotiated the price from the original internet price and save $60.
Private island tour was well worth the money. Vangelis Vranikas met us at the port and for the next 5 hours introduced us to the beauty of "his" Corfu - uncrowded, unspoiled, delightful! We stopped for Greek coffee with a few locals in a tiny village near the top of the island, enjoyed grapes fresh from the vines as a treat. When almost 2000 people descend upon anyplace, the destination is changed. Vangelis took us away from the crowds and the "typical" sights to see "his" Corfu. He was charming and delightful and we highly recommend using Taxi Tours Corfu!
