We used this company to take us to aqualand and wished we hadn't. Some Irish guests at our hotel used another company due to recommendation and I so wished we did too.
The return leg of the journey was a nightmare as one of the side doors failed to close on the bus. The driver tried to fix at the roadside, but when he failed to do so, he just drove back without it closing. No warnings from him or anything, and as he got more and more angry due to it not closing, the braking got harder. Things then got worse for us as we were the last drop off. When the driver suggested he couldn't get us back to the hotel, he just pulled up at the side of the road and told us to go. 2 adults with 2 small children, we had no idea where we were in 30+ degree heat. I refused to leave the bus unless we were given taxi, we were later given one but the driver was aggressive and not happy that we wouldn't just get out!
Upon complaining to the company we were just fobbed off, told we would be given a special price if we returned. I think they were missing the point, the driver was dangerous and happy to leave a paying family in the middle of nowhere to try and find there own way. I strongly recommend that you don't use these people, I have the messages to prove how unhelpful they were. Will also be reporting to the Corfu authorities.

We were holidaying in Messonghi as a family of six. We when on a Corfu Island coach trip. We thought the price of 25 euros per person cheap. The lady Bridget that sold us the trips was very informative and not pushy We were picked up outside our hotel at 8 am and got back after 5pm so had a good day out. We when to some great places on the island with some marvellous views. We recommend the coach company as very good.

We've booked 3 trips (blue lagoon, Corfu by night and paxos islands). Had to cancel Corfu and moved blue lagoon to other day, without any issues. Rita from selling office in Mairitika gave us a lot of tips and places where to go. Good organisation. Crew on boat in blue lagoon trip is amazing. We had a good, relaxing time there. Paxos is contracted by other vendor, and boat might be smaller but still worth this price. We sure can recommend that agency :)

The boat trip from messonghi to the blue lagoon is over full, cramped and quite frankly hideous. There is no pleasure being crammed onto the boat like sardines where there is no seats left having to sit on floor and being split up from your children. We refused to stay on the boat for Saftey reasons and demanded a refund!!
The problem with this boat trip is that they sell the cruise in many different outlets and shops in many different resorts. It’s not a computer automated system so the sales people do not know how many tickets have been sold as a whole. You are much better off spending more money and hiring a private charter boat.

We went on the Blue Lagoon trip and it proved a fantastic day out. We paid 88 Euros for 4 of us, reportedly Thomas Cook charge 50 euros per person .
First port of call is the caves, probably least impressive part of the trip, then an hour in Sivota, lovely mainland Greek village, then on to the Blue lagoon for snorkelling, and swimming from the boat. Then lunch was being planned as the boat would just bob around in the middle of the Ionian Sea, but quite out of the Blue, the boat was surrounded by Dolphins, I had seen wild Dolphins before, but my wife and daughters hadn’t so this was a fantastic, unexpected, addition to the trip, there was around 10 Dolphin in the group.
We then headed back towards Corfu and once again encountered a family of Dolphin, this was another group with about 6 in the group. One Dolphin swam alongside the boat for a few minutes.
The last stop was at Notos beach, for another hour of swimming, then it was all back on board the boat and return to Messonghi, great day had by all.
