The Vespa tour was great. The rental company gave us comprehensive advice and put together a great tour for us. The scooter was in great condition, helmets new and clean, mobile phone holder and charging cable included, everything at its best. We can recommend that without reservation. But please remember that a motorcycle driver's license is necessary, an international driver's license is not. The lender speaks German, which is also important for some. So I'll be happy to come back Frank Wolfring

Friendly and courteous service in German. A 15-minute walk from the port. There were four of us and we had 2 well-kept, new Vespa scooters. The helmets were also clean and new. We can warmly recommend this rental service. We had a great day on this beautiful island of Corfu and would love to come back.
