Katrina is a lovely warm engaging person who's knowledge of the history and local characters of Ithaca make her an invaluable guide. We enjoyed a fascinating walk around the farms of Stavros that included a wonderful picnic. Definitely recommend.

We have enjoyed several walks with Katrina. The Farm Walk and Odysseus. Her knowledge of Icatha, past and present, provides an engaging and entertaining evening, bringing to life the past and present, the flora and fauna. A must do when visiting the island.

Katrina led us on a lovely gentle walk through olive groves and farmland and was very engaging and informative. A lovely way to get a real 'feel' of Ithaca, it's history and nature. Would highly recommend.
