Vasilis provided an grade A experience for me and my family. First, he arranged for a spacious and functional Mercedes van and took us on a customized tour of Corfu. His background as an Archieologist provided added depth and insight on the history of the various sites we visited. He is articulate and very friendly. We ended the half day tour with him recommending us to one of the best restaurants in Corfu where we had a sumptuous lunch. Two thumbs up!

Wow. Just wow! We had the best tour ever on the most beautiful island of Corfu with Vasilis. He was so warm and joyful, he made sure we all had a good time. He shared just enough history that we were never bored and he knew all the places in Corfu that would be the most enjoyable for us. Best. Tour. Ever.

Vassalis is maybe the best guide from Tours by locals we have ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable .He has a masters degree in archaeology. He has a great sense of humor and wonderful energy. He spent extra time with us and was very flexible about our itinerary. There is much more to do in Corfu that I anticipated. The old town and the Forts are really worth a day.There is also the remains of a third century church..Additionally seeing the spectacular views from around the island is memorable .

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Even if the summer season hasn't finished yet, I believe that maybe this tour was the tour of the year. What a challenge to have so educated and experienced travelers! And what can I say after this wonderful review? Thank you so much for your kind words and the time that you spent with me in Corfu! You are so interesting people both of you! Thank you again and I'm waiting for your news about Albania :-) I hope to see you again! My Best Wishes! Vasilis

Vasilias met us promptly when we exited the port. He was an amazing tour guide and showed us all around his beautiful island. He was flexible when we decided we would like to stay longer at the beach. We enjoyed our time at Corfu mainly due to Vasilis and his knowledge and love of his homeland. Thank you Vasilis!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Mr. Robin, for your kind words and for taking the time to write me a review! I'm happy when I meet on my tours wonderful and kind people like you. My best wishes to all of you! Vasilis

Vasilis is a wonderful, charming, very knowledgeable, experienced archaeologist and professional tour guide. It is a breath of fresh air to be guided on a private tour by a local avoiding all of the large crowded bus tours. Vasilis Took the time to explain all of the history supplementing with images on his iPad. He catered our tour to exactly what we wanted. We stopped at a kumquat distillery to sample the product. The view of the paleokastritsa was stunning. I highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs. Maria I'm very glad when I meet so wonderful and kind people! Thank you very much for taking the time to write me a review here and for your kind words. I will be glad to see you again in Corfu! As I told you, you took a small taste of this gorgeous island! I wish you to have a great summer! Vasilis

Vasilis was a wealth of knowledge and made the tour of Corfu fun and highly focused on our interests. Our visit to the Palace, the Monestary, the Boat Ride and Caves, and the Old Town of Corfu was both informative and moved at an appropriate pace. Vasilis provided water the moment he picked us up and also provided an unexpected stop to a shop for kumquat and candy tasting. Vasilis is a "must hire" for Corfu. The experience was well worth it!! Thank you Vasilis!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your positive comments! I'm pleased to know that you have enjoyed our tour. I also had a great time with you! Best wishes! Vasilis

Vasilis is a high-energy, very knowledgeable guide who conveyed a wealth of information in our two hour walking tour of Corfu. He was engaging and fun and we wish we had more time so that we could have booked a longer tour with him. We would not hesitate to seek him out for a future visit to Corfu. A++ guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write a comment about me. I wish every day to have people like you on my tours! It was interesting and fun for me as well! I would be glad to see you again in Corfu! Best regards, Vasilis

Valilis was our tour guide & I highly recommend him. We were late due to a time mix up and he waited a hour for us to show up! He was very knowledgeable on the places we went. We didn't feel rushed, took time for pictures and had free time on our own. Thanks for sharing Corfu with us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review! Your kind words mean a lot to me! I had a very good time with you too. And thanks for taking the time to leave a comment here Best regards, Vasilis

Vasilis was at the ship terminal for when we arrived and gave us a very good tour of some of the Island beaches even though it took a long while to reach some of the isolated places. Our visit to the Palace was a little disappointing when we compare other garden Palaces we visited on our tour of Italy. Overall a very good afternoon tour. Thank you. Ray & Lyn.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to write me a review. However, I would like me to tell you that the beaches that we visited are the most famous on the island. But in May the sea is cold and not many people go swimming. The distances on a Greek island are long even if they are small islands because the roads are narrow. I will be glad to see you again in Corfu! Best regards, Vasilis

There really are not adequate words for how much we enjoyed our time in Greece BECAUSE of Vasilis. He was so very warm, engaging, and educated, and we felt an instant connection with him. His knowledge of the history and archaeology of the area was unsurpassed. He never tired of our questions and interest. We truly felt like we made a friend and we will look him up again the next time we are in Greece. Thank you, dear Vasilis, for your time and energy and sharing your love for your country. -TheRobinsons

Outstanding Tour! Couldn't say enough about Vasilis. So much knowledge of not only Olimpia but the country as a whole. He also took us to a local bee farm and family owned winery. Both excellent choices to get a taste of the true Greek countryside. A must Tour for everyone wanting both, history and Greek life in one Tour! Excellent!

Vasilis was waiting for us as promised, despite a last minute time change due to late ship arrival. We had a great day learning about Olympia while taking in the sights. He added wine tasting and a visit with a farm family which all of us agreed was the highlight of our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate that you took the time to comment. I had a great time with you too and I hope to see you again in Olympia. Thanks again! Efharistó! Best regards, Vasilis

If you are planning to visit Olympia, book this tour! Rather than wandering around reading plaques, Vasilis brought the site back to life with renderings of how it would have looked in the past as well as his engaging storytelling. Vasilis was prompt to respond to our inquiry and arranged a customized tour for our group due to our time constraints being on a cruise stop. In addition to the ancient site, we also visited a gorgeous little vineyard. This tour is really worth it and Vasilis is fantastic!

We had an amazing day with Vasilis in Olympia. He is extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. We visited the archaeological site in Olympia, Klio's House and Magna Grecia, the olive press factory. All 3 stops were different but all very enjoyable. Vasilis' knowledge of the archaeological site in Olympia was second to none. Highly recommended.

Vasilis was able to accommodate our last minute tour request of Olympia and we are SO HAPPY he did. Vasilis was AMAZING! Without his guidance we would have felt lost among the amazing ruins at Olympia. He was knowledgable and gave us the facts and his opinions as an archeologist. He was also fun and took all of our questions happily. He was the perfect guide for our group and enhanced our trip. Thank you Vasilis!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your possitive comments! I'm pleased to know that you have enjoyed our tour. I also had a great time with you. Hope to see you back again in Greece! Best wishes to all of you! Vasilis P.S: Be careful the pine trees in the archaeological sites! ;-)

Vasilius gave us a great tour, customized and tailored to our pace and preferences. We hadn't expected to love Olympia, but his grasp of the history, archaeology and English really showcased the site. He kept the pace manageable, and gave us lots of options. His personal recommendation for lunch was off the beaten path with a to-die-for patio vined-over arbor and ocean view. The food was great, the fish was the best I've ever had. The tour was an excellent value and gets our highest recommendation!

If you plan to be in Katakolon, get in touch with Vasilis ASAP and book time with him before someone else beats you to it!He met us at our ship and drove us to Ancient Olympia, while explaining about the countryside through which we traveled.We used the new "virtual tour on a tablet" which makes it possible to see the site's buildings as they had originally existed, and because of his education as an archaeologist, he breathed life into the ruins for us.Bonus:a visit to Vasilis' friend Klio's Honey Farm!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Your kind comments fill me with joy and strength to move on. I will be more than happy to welcome you back to Greece anytime! I have already prepared my new tours! :-) Best wishes to both of you, Vasilis

Vasilis picked up our party of 4 at the Viking Star Cruise ship dock and took us on a educated and beautiful tour of the ancient city of Olympia. Being a degreed Archeologist he knows this area very well. Speaks good English and is very personable , and is a good driver. After our tour of the old city we stopped for coffee then retook us to a local winery to experience local wines with cheese & breads.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Mike for your review! Your kind words mean a lot to me! All the best from Olympia, Vasilis
