Corfu is one of the most visually exciting regions of Greece with its variety of natural beauty, exotic scenery, magical colors, flaming sunsets, romantic moonlight, luxurious vegetation, (lush green even in the height of summer) a riot of radiant flowers and colorful blooms, centuries old silver olive groves, glowing oranges, scented lemons, rich pergolas, sleepy lagoons, forgotten coves, bubbling springs, exciting caves, virgin beaches, golden sands, and pellucid turquoise emerald seas – there is surely no other island in the whole universe to which these superlatives collectively apply.
An island full of images, we offer a selection of Corfu organised and private day tours as well as shore excursions, including Corfu Town sightseeing tour , island tours such as visit to mythical kaizerin “Sissi” palace, or walking tours in the medieval town of Corfu unspoiled through out the centuries.
