Ariti was an excellent guide and we loved our food and culture tour with her. She’s friendly and easygoing and full of fascinating insights. Corfu town is beautiful to explore; we learnt a lot about its history and about modern Greek culture too. The food, tasted at local stores and restaurants, was yummy and neverending—start slowly! Highly recommended. Thanks, Ariti!

This was an amazing tour. The guide was knowledgeable, the food was a great little bit of many things Greek. We were joined by our kids (9 and 14) and both really enjoyed it and were willing to try everything. A really great experience!
