Great experience. Harris was amazing, really informative and customised the tour for us. Was able to answer all questions thrown at him, and even helped out with further recommendations. Only minus i have was that the wine tour was our first stop in the morning - was hoping for a little more from this part of the tour. I would still very much recommend.

Our guide was really adorable, flexible on schedules, times for each destination. It was a real pleasure to do this tour of Kefalonia and to discover this island with a person who knows it well, who explains the places in question to us and answers our questions.
