We really enjoyed our hiking tour in Angel Castle. Since we came off season, we were only people to take tour that day, and the guide, Yorgos, took time to adjust program to our own needs and requests. We had a perfect pick up, drop off and tours experience, have enjoyed beautiful views and Corfu and tranquil and quiet Corfu countryside, and we took a very nice hike with stunning views along the way. Yorgos gave us a lot of tips about the island and was friendly and accommodating. We will definitely book activities with this company again and can totally recommend the tour

The driver was excellent, provided us with excellent service and was more than willing to adjust the schedule and route according to our changing plans. Christina at Charitos was invaluable in helping us figure out a way to visit all the highlights that we were interested in seeing. I would recommend Charitos without hesitation.
