Our tour guide, Dennis, was amazing!!!! He was a very careful driver, even in the rain on the way back to the ship. Dennis went over the plan at the beginning and made an adjustment when we realized my husband wouldn't be able to walk the steps at one of the caves. Dennis took us to another part of the island to give us a great experience as a substitute. The winery we went to was phenomenal! The view while trying the local co-op wine was magical. The entire island was absolutely beautiful. I wish we had more than a day to explore. This tour was our favorite from our whole trip.

Best experience in Kefalonia!
Amy_c, Aug 2023
Kefalonia is now our favorite Greek island thanks to our wonderful driver Spyros. He was waiting for us right as we got off our cruise with our name on a sign. The car was very nice and comfortable for 3 of us. He gave us options of what we wanted to do and we chose to do the Melissani Caves first (got there around 10 am, would recommend to go as early as possible to beat the crowds). When we arrived at the caves, there was already a decent size line because a lot of tour buses were there. Spyros kindly went ahead and purchased waters for us and brought them to us in line. We waited around 45 minutes and the tickets were 8€ per person. The cave tour is about 10 minutes- you ride in a row boat into the caves and back out. We then drove along a beautiful scenic route to Assos beach, stopping at an overlook of Myrtos beach along the way which was breathtaking. At Assos beach, we went for a swim in the area Spyros recommended and grabbed some food (spinach& feta pie and baklava) from the bakery he also recommended which was so good. It was the cutest little town with not as many tourists. We then returned to Argostoli, stopping along the way for photos. We felt very safe with Spyros and his driving. We hope to return one day and have Spyros again!
Kefalonia the beautiful!

Beautiful Kefalonia with a Great Driver
Susan_H, Oct 2022
Harris was a great driver and helped steer us to the right places to take advantage of the short window of sun on an otherwise rainy day. The Mercedes van was spacious and comfortable with USB ports. Kefalonia is beautiful and this tour was perfect for our quick tour during a cruise port of call. Harris shared information about the island and answered our questions and was a amiable and helpful driver.
A wonderful experience on a beautiful island

Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the beautiful island of Kefalonia! Harris our guide/driver was awesome! He was kind, knowledgeable and professional. He was also flexible fitting the experience to our likes and requests. He also accommodated us with an extension of our tour (for a fee of course) so we could enjoy some relaxing time at the beach! A most wonderful experience!
Awesome day to get a taste of the island

Harry met us promptly at the port. He brought us to the monastery and wine tasting. We did one cave and the next had a long line so he showed us a beach and recommended a place for lunch. We then went back and the line for the cave was much shorter. Had a great day. There were 7 of us. 2 families. Kids were 23,23 and 20
