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.

It was a very very nice excursion. Very personal and well organised. Even our food wishes were respected! Heard a lot about the history and especially the Corfu of today. Very interesting how the Greek world view and certainly that of the people of Corfu has developed. And the walk through the streets of the old town with this guide was very interesting. The food was plentiful but always different. Learned a lot about various customs of Corfu cuisine. From the differences in olive oil to the special use of, for example, cinnamon.

Our guide was originally from Corfu. We learned a lot from her about Corfu’s history and how it impacts the present day. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Very insightful, fun, and a small group to boot. Highly recommend.

A nice walk through the city with an ideal mix between sightseeing, historical facts, interesting food stops, culinary tips and varied tastings. At the end of the trip the belly is more than full, literally :-).

Had a wonderful tour walking and chatting and of course sampling the delicious food around Old Corfu Town. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
