I am an official greek tour guide since 2000, after a 2 and half years studies.
Since then, I have been working on Corfu Island with ALL cruise liners: Seabourn Yachts, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Regent, Silver, Crystal, Princess, P&O, COSTA, MSC, Celebrity, Norwegean Jade, Fred Olsen, etc. with groups but also VIP and private tours.
As I speak several languages and I have alot to tell about the country, the locals, the nature , architecture and history, I became a main guide for big European tour operators such as FRAM France and TUI France and Belgium.
Before coming to Greece, I was living in Egypt where I was born and studied Tourism to become an official tour guide (B. A. in tourism). I also worked all over Egypt (Nile cruises, coach) from 1976 till 1983.
I also emigrated to Canada where I lived in Montreal from 1979 till 1982. There I worked in large hotel chains: Holiday Inn and Hilton International at the Front desk. Also as tour leader of special French groups coming to Eastern Canada and USA. That was a fantastic experience!
When I decided to get married I had to change country. Here I am since 1983, in Corfu Greece!
Since 1983 until 2000, I was working in our family hotel: reservations, public relations, contracts and restaurant. Today I am a full time tour guide working anytime of the year, but especially from April to December.
I would like to tell you that I am an openminded and communicative person. Also very optimistic! My life is about sharing my experience with people and also my love for all the countries I lived in. Today, I would like to share with you all that heritage.
Welcome to Corfu!
A Recent Review of this guide
Wafaa's Tour of Corfu Town was wonderful. We were able to see and experience things that we never would have on our own. Wafaa is incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of Corfu. She is very nice and very considerate to your specific interests. She also gave us a few insider tips that we greatly appreciate it. Altogether it made for a great day!
