A Recent Review of this tour

Kunihiro was superb--met us at the dock, took us on the train to the whiskey distillery, lunch at a local fish restaurant where we were the only foreigners (and the food was wonderful), then visited the Herring Mansion, Corfu canal, shopping district, and saki tasting before returning to the ship.
