Covers all the highlights of the island
Shehnaz_D, Jul 2023
A good tour of the island revealing its beautiful scenery. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Kefalonia. The driver was safe and careful.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review...! Hope to see you again on one of our excursions...!
Fantastic day trip
Tracey_C, Jul 2023
Would highly recommend. katalina was very informative about the history of the tour stops and the whole of this beautiful island. It was a small group which made it more personal. She also gave us tips on where to eat in Fiscardo. The bus driver ‘Paris’ did an amazing job of making us feel very safe on the journey. The roads are very windy and narrow in places but his driving skills were top class.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
We are beyond delighted you had a great time on our Island tour! We take great pride in knowing that our guests loved our excursion!
The actual trip was great...
Vicki_V, Jul 2023
The actual trip was great memi the guide was very knowledgeable! The only bad point was that because we were staying in skala we were on the coach for around 2 hours before the tour even started. Good way to see the majority of the island in one day
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you very much for your review. We are aware that starting from Skala makes a very long day and are working very hard to improve this! We are happy you enjoyed the tour & hope to see you again in the near future!
Recommend to book this!

Vivienne_Y, May 2023
What a lovely day. Well worth it. Our driver and guide were amazing. Some of the roads are difficult to navigate for big coaches but the driver was so careful and considerate. Our guide was brilliant too, very knowledgeable and gave us history of the places we visited. All round a super trip. Loved it. Some of the seating in the coach was in need of repair but other than that no complaints

Fabulous tour of Kefalonia - highly recommended
Heather_B, May 2023
This was a fabulous tour of Kefalonia including an opportunity to taste some of the amazing local wines, visit the unique caves and taste some exquisite local food in a stunning little fishing village. Our tour guide gave such a comprehensive history of the island throughout the whole day and we would highly recommend this tour if you want to see the absolute best of the Island.
Response from Host, May 2023
Heather, A huge thank you for your great review! We are beyond delighted you had a wonderful time on our island tour! It gives us so much joy to read reviews like yours! We truly hope to see you again in the near future on one of our excursions!
Great way to spend a day on Kefalonia
Kate_M, May 2023
This trip was amazing, start to finish. Beginning with wine tasting at 10am was a first for me and I actually really liked it! The wines we sampled were excellent and learning about the history of the specific grapes they used made it even more interesting and memorable. The views from the vineyard certainly didn’t hurt either! The drive to Drogarati and Melisani caves was beautiful, Kefalonia is probably one of the most scenic places I have had the pleasure to visit. Melisani cave was a standout- I’d seen pictures online prior to visiting and assumed that they were heavily edited but they were not. It’s actually that stunning and blue in person! Granted, we had excellent weather for it but it was still as beautiful as the photos I’d seen online. Fiscardo was lovely as well, we had a perfect amount of time to eat lunch and wander around without it being too short or too long. Myrtos was the absolute standout- it was why I booked the tour and it did not disappoint. I’ve never seen water so many shades of blue, so vibrant and clear. Honestly all of the water I saw on Kefalonia was the best I’d seen in all of my travels. My only wish is that we had had time to go down to the beach but this tour operator offers that in a different tour so it’s still doable, I just didn’t have enough time to do both. Our tour guide Duska did an excellent job of telling us the history of the island without firehosing us with information. She was professional, knowledgeable and offered excellent suggestions for meals both during the trip and during our stay in Kefalonia. She was very prompt in responding to my message to enquire if I was in the right spot and was just lovely and friendly. She even offered her jacket to one of the tour participants for Drogarati cave! Between her and our driver, I felt very taken care of during the tour.

Wonderful
Alexis_K, Sep 2022
This was my boyfriend and I’s first time at Kefalonia and the tour helped us view the highlights of the island and learn about its rich history. Duska was a wonderful tour guide - she was very knowledgeable and gave us so much interesting insight into the island.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Alexis We are delighted you enjoyed our Kefalonia Island tour! Hope to see you again in the near future!
Kefalonia’s “must see” in a day….a very looong one
vittoria_c, Aug 2022
It is a very nice tour during which you can see the “must see” of Kephalonia. Katerina was an excellent guide, she shared a lot of informations and Lucas drove us smoothly through the day…by the way it is a very loooong day. The description says that tour stars at 9am but actually all depends on your pick up points and the numbers of pick up before Lassi…my tour started at 7am and I was back at dropping point at 8pm…For trasparency sake it should be clarified in the description so that one knows what is enrolling (I found out my pick up time only long after the booking).
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you very much for your feedback! As your pick-up in the southeast part of the island such as Poros, it's logically expected to be on the bus longer in order to reach all the highlights of the island! The time is an indication of the start time of the tour which is clearly stated on the description!
Amazing
Alice_L, Aug 2022
A great tour with a passionate tour guide, only slightly ruined by a group of American girls, but nothing kefalonia excursions could solve! The views were stunning and the information was great!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience with us! It's unfortunate that sometimes guests ruin the experience for the rest which is totally out of our hands! We hope you are able to visit us again in the near future!

Response from Host, Jul 2022
Dear Mr Gary Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience with us! We are so happy you had a wonderful time! We hope to see you soon
Perfect way to experience the island!
Laura_F, Jul 2022
Memi (guide) and Demitrius (driver) were fantastic. We learned so much on our trip and couldn't believe the ground that was covered on a day trip! Every stop was just for the right amount of time and Memi was very knowledgeable. She even alerted the itinerary when she saw that the lakes were going to be busy so we didn't have to wait in a long queue and we returned when it was virtually empty. Would highly recommend.

Interesting and fun tour
PAOLA_F, Jul 2021
I was really not sure about spending a day far away from Cefalonian beaches, but I was wrong: we visited a few very beautiful places and Duska, our lovely tour guide, made the trip even more pleasant!
Response from Host, Jul 2021

Fiona_W, Dec 2020
We had an amazing Island tour with Kefalonia Excursions on our first trip to Kefalonia. Helen our guide in particular, was extremely knowledgeable, considerate, and genuinely concerned about making Kefalonia a truly wonderful experience. We felt like we were part of the family. Thank you for the memories guys!

Well worth it
Andy_P, Aug 2020
Fantastic driver and guide, the only issue we had was the time we got at the stops, little bit limited but lovely to get out and see a gorgeous island for a reasonable price and some jaw dropping views, the road down to Assos was particularly worthy of a change of underwear
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Dear Andy Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience with us! We hope to see you again in the near future! Kefalonia Excursions Team

A 360° overview of Kefalonia
Laura_M, Aug 2019
It was a great day visiting the highlights of Kefalonia with an experienced and always available guide and driver. I did not appreciate however the customer's service behind not answering on time or making more difficult to enjoy the full experience.
Zeer aan te bevelen trip!
Martin_J, Jul 2022
Zeer gevarieerd programma met vele highlights. De buschauffeur en de gids maakte dat iedereen veel aandacht kreeg.
