A Recent Review of this tour

Want a guide who will go way out of her way to research a question you might have? Try Wafaa! We had been in Corfu many years earlier and mentioned in an email to Wafaa that we’d like to tour the area where we had stayed and even find the villa. Before our arrival and first meeting with Wafaa, she had made phone calls on our behalf and found a solid lead. We went with her driver and after a stop at a local boat rental agency and a drive down several dead end roads we found it! We’re eternally grateful.
