    It was a lovely trip. We had a very nice guide. She was always there for questions and very well organized. We got interesting facts about the islands, historical backgrounds and the nature. At the different stops we had enough time to enjoy the place and ourselves. We absolutely recommend the tour !

    Pros:The trip is definitively great. We were lucky not be on a crowded boat as we booked it from Germany. Good cheap food and drinks on the boat itself. Maria the guide spoke 5 languages and gave great explanations about the history of the islands. We stopped to swim for an hour and then first 2.5hrs to explore Gaios. I would suggest to eat a meal at Vasilis Cons:The phone numbers recieved in the email never worked. We called 5 times to check which port we would disembark from,but no one answered the call.

    Exceeded expectations

    Fantastic day, well organised and excellent communication from booking, hotel pick up and cruise. Polite friendly staff, Super fun on boat, swimming in turquoise water, caves and unexpected traditional dance. Highly recommended, boat was not crowded, enough seating for everyone and reasonably priced food and drinks on boat. Excellent value for money and would visit again when next in Corfu. Thank you Ionian Cruises, family have all said this was a highlight of holiday.
