Tour Details

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 Robola Winery and Agia Efimia Village.

On this sightseeing tour, you will take a scenic ride past Mount Ainos to the famous monastery of St Gerasimos, the patron saint of Kefalonia. Marvel at the solid silver casket containing religious relics from the saint. Travel on to visit the Robola Winery and gain insight into the production methods of the famous and rare Robola wine, made of a local selection of grapes, which comes in red, white, and sweet Muscat.

Leaving the wintery, 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, before stoping by Myrtos Beach for breathtaking photos.

Reserve your spot now for a once-in-a-lifetime look at the magnificent island of Kefalonia.

Packed schedule
October 04, 2018
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.

A little Disorganized
September 17, 2018
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.

Highlights of Kefalonia - Very Enjoyable
October 12, 2017
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.

Best of the 5 tours we took
September 28, 2017
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.
