Should we hire a guide in Corfu?

We will be on Corfu for the first time late September on a cruise. We have thought about vacationing to Corfu as a destination, so I am very excited to see the island.

We are considering hiring a driver/guide to tour us around the island for approx. 6 hours.

Do you think it is a good idea? Any suggestions on a company to talk with? We do want a Guide that speaks English.

We want to see the highlights of Corfu, spend some time a beautiful

beach and have a wonderful lunch somewhere. I am thinking we should see, Paleokastristsa,Kanoni, Achillon,etc. Would uve to get away from the heavy tourist areas and see the real Corfu.

1. Re: Should we hire a guide in Corfu?

the time you'll be spending on the island, approx. 6-7 hrs is not enough to do everything you want... Check the page tripadvisor.com/Travel-g189458-c96694/Corfu:… The Corfu taxi page has a link for organizing a private daily excursion, if you don't want to get into one organized by the cruise ship.

Depending on the weather, late September is not guaranteed sunny as it is now, you could spend more time in Corfu Town, lots of things to see and do there, allowing some time for a short visit to Achillion etc.

Late September is not as heavy as it is now ( right now is the peak of the tourist season), so visits to Achillion or Paleokastritsa should not be a hassle and hopefully you will not waste precious time back and forth.

I live here and personally, if you love good food, I would get a taxi to take you to Agni Bay and eat at Toula's restaurant. It is absolutely out of this world and the journey up the North East Coast is spectacular. Have a look on the internet of the views, after five years here of living in an inland village this is our "special occasion" spot. I'll guarantee once you have visited, you will certainly be vacationing in Corfu! Hope this helps
