City Tour

Our tour takes us first to the unspoilt village of Gastouri , where the exquisite Achelleion Palace , built in 1892 for the Empress Elisabeth of Austria , occupies a position overlooking the Ionian Sea .
A fter a visit to Kanoni , with its renowned view of Mouse Island and the Monastery of Vlacherna, we continue to the Town of Corfu , to sample its elegance and charm.
Guided visit to St Spyridon's church, home to the remains of the island's Patron Saint.



Paxi & Parga cruise


No holiday in Corfu is complete without a cruise to the enchanting island of Paxos . Located south of Corfou these islands were holiday resorts since the 18 th century with the French and British. Continuing to the southeast we find the little town of Parga nicely situated amidst the spectacular coastal scenery of the Greek mainland.
There will be opportunities for swimming and lunch at both Paxos and Parga


Grand Island Tour - North

We cross the island to the West coast and Palaiokastritsa , justifiably Corfu 's best-known beauty spot, where an 18th century Monastery crowns a dramatic cliff and overlooks a sea rich with peacock hues.
From here we climb to one of Corfu 's enchantingly colourful villages, Lakones , from which one of the finest panoramic views in Europe may be enjoyed.
Our route continues via the mountain villages and glorious views of north-western Corfu and brings us to the fishing village/resort of Kassiopi .
We return in the afternoon through the superb coastal scenery of the north-east, with stunning views of the many beautiful coves and bays, and of mysterious Albania , only a short distance away across the straits.


Grand Island Tour - South

Corfu has an amazing variety of scenery, and it is by visiting the southern part that you will fully appreciate this diversity.
It is here that Corfu 's most impressive, unspoiled, sandy beaches are spread.
The villages of the south have changed very little over the years, and our tour will give you the opportunity to partake, however briefly, in their enduring way of live - a Greek coffee with the locals in Hlomos, a visit to the carpet factory in Kato Garouna where local girls hand-weave colourful rugs.
After this relaxing but interesting tour we shall descend to one of the long sandy beaches for lunch and swimming, before returning along the eastern coast.
