This excursion allowed us to see much of the island of Corfu, and it is beautiful. The Monastery was very interesting, with fascinating iconography in the chapel. The Greek lunch provided as part of the tour was delicious. The tour of the old town of Corfu was very interesting, and the free time to wander around, or just sit a cafe - we did both - was fun.

The caves were good to see and the fish and it was very pretty but I don;t think we spent more then 30 seconds in each cave due to the amount of boats wanting to look inside too. Read Less

Our guide was a delight and so familiar with everyone we encountered in the little shops. We were treated to a special Greek luncheon that was really enjoyable and then another chance to visit the little shops and purchase some of the linens that were so beautiful decorated. My little tablecloth is on display here at home and I always get inquiries about it. We loved Corfu! Read Less

Was part of the tour that also included the palace as noted above. The whole tour was 4 hours with some time spent in the car getting to the sites. Organizing the excursion by email with the tour company was good.

Pretty sight but a short trip! Don't remember much about this excursion to be honest apart from the Poleokastristra monastery. I was hoping to closer to it but we only had a view of it from the top!

We rented a car here with 3 other cars and made a caravan to Paleoktsriza. We went on a boat ride to the caves and some of the passengers even swam in the water which was cold. Then we went up to the monastery. After that we took a long way back to the ship and got lost a few times and found really quaint towns. We had lunch at the Achilleion Palace then headed for the ship with plenty of time to spare. Read Less
