Highlights of Kefalonia
Bring your camera for amazing photos of these and many other Kefalonia landmarks including Melissani Lake and Myrtos Beach. Along the way you will stop at Divino Winery and Agia Efimia Village.
On this 5-hour sightseeing tour you will take a scenic ride past olive groves and vineyards as you head toward Drogarati Cave. With its massive stalactites and stalagmites. Discovered nearly 300 years ago, this beautiful cave is famous for its acoustics and has been the site of several opera and orchestra performances. Pass through Sami to arrive at Melisani Lake, an underground lake fed by subterranean waters. Master oarsmen will take you on a tour of the lake via a small boat. Gaze up at the partially covered cave ceiling and peer through the beautiful crystal clear water all the way to the lake bottom.
Your tour continues on to the quaint fishing village of Agia Efimia, situated on a small harbor against a backdrop of mountains. Stop by Myrtos Beach for breathtaking photos on your ride to your next stop. Arrive at St. Andreas Monastery, founded in 1587 AD by Countess Roxanne. The famous monastery was built during the Byzantine era and was built next to an apple and pear tree, where an image of Saint Andreas was found.
On your last stop, you'll visit the Divino Winery, which is an old family winery that has been restored as a museum with a wine bar. The winery produces 12 different wines and 3 exceptional vinegar varieties that will serve all preferences and delight every palate.
Reserve your spot now for a once-in-a-lifetime look at the magnificent island of Kefalonia.

We've seen the best places of the island, our guide was nice and knowledgeable, we loved every place we've been.The price of excursion was reasonable. Certainly recommended!!

We had a lot of transit getting to the Highlights. Guide didn't give us good orientation as others. Visit to winery was good. The boat ride on the underground lake was very cool. The caverns were just okay - small. If you haven't been to this port, this is a good tour.

This tour seemed a little disorganized. Some of us were picked up at the pier and then we drove about 5 minutes to the office and had to wait quite some time for other people to get on the bus. We were not given information as to what the day entailed such where we were going, when we would stop and be able to get out. Had no idea about lunch and water was not provided. Tour guide did a very good job of explaining the history and mythology of the area.

The best destinations on the Island with a great tour guide. Enjoyed the commentary. My only complaint is that the tour ran late unnecessarily and gave me some anxiety about getting back to the ship on time. Arriving 20 minutes before ship sailing deadline is cutting it too close for my comfort.

The guide was great, very interesting, informative and fun. All of the stops were interesting and varied. From wine tasting to the beach and on to an under ground cavern, and a short boat ride on a miniature lake. A good time was had by all.
