Our guide, Angela, was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information. Our visit to the Palace was quite uncomfortable, due to large crowds and tight spaces. Not much point having audio guides when you can hear the information but can’t see what everyone else is looking at because the room is overcrowded. By the time you were able to squeeze into the room to see what you had heard from another room, the tour had moved on. The audio guides themselves did not function well when the tour guide was out of range.....and this happened several times due to the large crowds. Too much time was spent here at the Palace.
Our other disappointment was the tour of the Old Town. It was non-existent. The advertising clearly stated “tour Corfu’s Old Town on a walking tour”. There was no such walking tour. What we did do was arrive outside the fortress, receive some information, walk through the park to the Old Town, given directions to St Spyridon’s church etc and then let loose for only 50 minutes. Our explorations were unguided....this was no walking tour, as promised. If we wanted to stay in the Old Town longer than 50 minutes, we had to find our own way back to the port.....an hour walk. We did stay, and we did walk back to the port, as we felt that less than an hour could not possibly do justice to Corfu. Having said that, exploring on your own without any ‘on the spot’ insights into the history of what you are looking at was far from what we expected.
This was not an inexpensive tour, and we also had to pay an additional 10 Euros each to enter the Palace, turning our $65 pp tour into more than $80.
Angela did a very good job, but the stated itinerary certainly did not match the reality. This tour was a huge disappointment.
Nice to have a knowledgeable person walk you through the palace to give you the history. I would have liked more time in Old Corfu. You only have an hour on your own and that is not enough time to walk through the streets and enjoy the ambience of the city.
Our guide, Angela, was very informative! I only wish we had the headphones for this activity as in the crowds at the palace we were not always able to hear her well. We were allowed time in the city for shopping and given excellent history of the area.
Maria our guide and driver was outstanding. She got us in and out of traffic with ease and gave us a great overview of Corfu and its history without boring us. She gave great recommendation for places to eat and other sights to see if we had more time.
One of the best shore excursions of our whole trip.

Maria our guide was on time and provided our group the fastest way to the Achilleion Palace. Along the way telling us all about Corfu’s history and present day life there. She guided us through the city to all the sites and recommended the best restaurant overlooking the sea.
