We were picked up right at the cruise port. Started off with a tour of the touristy areas of Korfu. We were then taken for a cappuccino at a little mountain cafe with a view of the city and ocean. After that upwards on mountain 4x4 trails to a 600 year abandoned village. And finished at an amazing family run Greek restaurant at the top of the mountain. We enjoyed Grappa and home made wines, with an incredible meal of so many home made Greek dishes. The absolute best excursion we had done!

Seeing and experiencing the local culture, people, foods and views... away from the over beaten tourist tracks, was terrific. Our guide was knowledgeable, thoughtful and informative... a "local friend" for the day!

This tour was great. We were met at the pier by Fodos and he explained to the 6 of us what we would see and do. And made sure that our schedule was going to get us back at the ship on time. Fodos was a wonderful guide. Spoke well and told us so much about the history of the island and its people. He took us to the top of the mountain where there was a Monastery and a beautiful view of the seas. We then went to a old Roman village and had an beautiful lunch served to us by Tomas and his Family. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Fodos.

Love, love, loved this excursion. Breathtaking views and lots of knowledge about the city. Total of 6 plus our amazing driver / tour guide Villicilias. He made the tour. Loved visiting the monestery at the top of the mountain and seeing the remains of the ancient city. Got a special effect of seeing a large fire in Albania from our Mountain View. Great way to see the city without all the crowds highly recommend this tour.

Great tour with a great guide. I wouldn’t call it a jeep and it was a little crowded in the vehicle with six people. However, there were frequent stops for coffee and the ride to the top of the mountain left you with a beautiful view and the meal in old town Parithea was an absolute delight.
