We booked two tours with Avgerinos; one was the Kefalonia North Tour and the other was to Ithaca. The North Tour was excellent, with the very personable Vicky as our guide. She was interesting to listen to and really made the tour a pleasurable experience, telling us lots of information and making each one of us feel as though she truly cared that we enjoyed ourselves. We especially enjoyed Myrtos beach - what an idyllic place. Assos was also lovely and very picturesque. Out least favourite destination was Fiskardo, which is over-commercialised, but nevertheless, pleased we had been to see it. So much more relaxing to be part of a small tour (just 11 of us, which was fabulous) than to have the stress of driving on the Kefalonian roads! Our driver was also brilliant. Our second tour was to Ithaca. We had already done a boat trip (with swimming off the boat) earlier in the week, so this tour was to see more of inland Ithaca. Whilst we enjoyed the tour, our guide (Eleni) was not in the same league as Vicky (sorry, Eleni) and she seemed quite vague about timings etc and the information she gave was a little repetitive. We didn't get long enough at the monastery (whilst we accept that it was Feast Day, we could still have stayed longer), and too long at the village of Stavros, which didn't hold many attractions. Vathy and Kioni are attractive, but we had too long at both places really. The coaches were well-presented and the driver excellent (same driver for both trips, so we felt very safe).

Dear Gillian T., Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed our Kefalonia North tour. It's a stunning tour, Myrtos beach with the turquoise colour of the water, Assos which is a beautiful little village and Fiscardo which is pleasant to see, with a lot of history. We are happy you enjoyed the small group, and our tour guide Vicky. She always tries to make the trip as memorable as possible, for everybody. Sorry to hear you feel this way. Eleni and Vicky are different characters, and both try to make the trip as enjoyable in their own way. The times might have been vague because we rely on the ferry back, which sometimes has a small delay, so that's why the times were not very clear, neither for the guide. We stay in Stavros longer because it's our last stop, so if there is a delay with the ferry we prefer to stay in Stavros longer, rather than Piso Aetos(the ferry port), which only has the ticket office and kiosk. We stay in Kioni for one and a half hours so everybody can have lunch and/or walk around. We will definitely take your advice into consideration for future trips, to see if there are some times we can approve. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the tour nevertheless, and we hope to see you again. Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you in the nearby future! Kind regards, Kim van Dijk Avgerinos Travel Experience

We booked three trips with Avgerinos, via the Odyssey hotel. First of all we did the "Fiskardo, Myrtos, and Assos tour, followed by the "North island tour, and finally we booked the tour over to the island of "Ithaca". All three gave us a wonderful feel for this lovely island, but the outstanding feature for us was the absolutely outstanding knowledge of Vicky our guide, we were lucky enough to have Vicky for all three tours, and her personality and presentation skills were second to none. This is a beautiful island and these three tours gave us such a lovely taste, and feel of Kefalonia. Thank you Averinos, and Vicky. Allan & Julie Ward

Dear Allan and Julie Ward, Thank you so much for writing this review! We, Vicky and the team, appreciate it a lot. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed all three tours, and we are happy we could show you more of our beautiful island Kefalonia and our neighbouring island Ithaca, both are very special to see, with a lot of history. Glad to hear all tours gave you a better feel and taste for Kefalonia. This island has truly so much to offer. We hope to see you again and hope you have a great time back home, packed with memories of Kefalonia (and Ithaca). Kind regards, Kim van Dijk Avgerions Travel Experience

We booked onto this tour to give us the chance to explore the north of the island as we are staying in Sami. The coach arrived to pick us up from the hotel to a very friendly introduction from Vicky. She was a passionate local and extremely approachable. The tour took us to Myrtos beach for a lovely swim in the most amazing azure blue water. Vicky provided us with a story of her past giving the location the human touch. The next stage took us up the mountain road to Fiskardo. This stage of the journey left some feeling the effects of motion sickness, but the views were stunning and once again Vicky provided us with more stories and backgrounds to the villages. Fiskardo was pretty but expensive. We couldn’t face paying €60 for a meal that was just €30 everywhere else on the island. Then came the bombardment of cruise ship passengers. Several hundred of them disembarked at the same time. This made the village unbearable for the second hour there. The final stint took us to Asos, the most beautiful village in the islands. Again there was a massive amount of insight before arrival and lots of personal touches. All in all, this is definitely a tour worth doing especially if your lucky enough to have the same guide as us, but beware of the time restrictions at each location.

Dear JimanyCriket, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our Kefalonia North tour with our guide, Vicky. It's a beautiful part of the island, and Vicky has a lot of knowledge and stories of this island. Unfortunately, it is high season, and everybody wants to go to Fiscardo because it's a beautiful village to see. I understand it made it a lot busier, but we hope you still enjoyed the village since it has a lot of history and is the only village intact from the earthquake of 1953. I think Assos is stunning too, the colours, the way it was built, the view to the Assos castle! We are happy to hear you enjoyed it. We hope to see you again and wish you a lovely time back home. Kind regards, Kim van Dijk Avgerinos Travel Experience

We booked the North Island tour of Kefelonia with Avgerinos Travel Experience and we’re delighted we did. It was a far superior experience to a trip we went on two days earlier with our tour company. Our guide Vicky was super. Extremely knowledgeable as she was born and grew up on the island, great sense of humour and full of entertaining anecdotes. It was extremely good value for money and plenty to see and do from 9-5pm. We would certainly have booked other excursions with the company if we had been staying longer.
