A Recent Review of this tour

We absolutely loved our highly customized tour with Georgia!!! We wanted to see lots of sights that took us all over the place and she made it all happen - even with an added stop on a mountain top to enjoy delicious desserts and a glorious view of the heart of Corfu. She was extremely knowledgeable, flexible and easy to work with both prior to the trip and during the trip. She wanted to make it exactly what we hoped for and she did that and then some! I would highly recommend Georgia!
