No money!

Now we have done all tours. However, I would like to say to the tour in Corfu that this was total rip-off. We were picked up, but a guided private tour can not be mentioned here. The driver just drove us and told nothing, showed and explained. He let us out at points and has been waiting for us there. That was not agreed. Even water was not there. The driver could not speak English and spoke so quietly that you did not understand him. This tour I could easily get over a taxi driver for much less money and more conversation. We did not learn anything about the island. Grottenschlecht.
