Great English speaking guide interesting information about the island and what we saw Lovely to have two hours stop at the northernmost village for lunch and look at village caves great. Coach comfortable. Plenty of toilet stops. We were so glad to have been on the winding narrow mountain roads with an extremely good coach driver instead of driving ourselves.

This must be the best tour I have ever done. You get to see all the main attractions of the island and explore the caves and beaches around Kefalonia with a great guide. The visit to the vineyard is amazing as you’re surrounded by an incredible landscape while tasting some of the best wine I have ever had. The organization of the tour is impeccable!

A wonderful informative trip with a great guide and got to see some amazing sights around the island. Well worth the money.
