Six of us (3 couples) agree that Georgia was OUTSTANDING! Our shore excursion (Monastery/Lakones/Corfu Town) occurred in torrential rains with strong winds--a true testament to her top-rate professional & personal skills (& sense of humor)! She greeted us at our port with literally THE best van on the island & her excellent driver (very convenient, especially in a storm). PS: She acted quickly & compassionately when someone not in our group had a bad fall—assisting, getting aid, & finding that guide.
