Whether you are spending a few days/weeks in Corfu or just visiting Corfu only for a few hours by Cruise Ship, the question you may be asking yourself is: ''Should I take part in an Organized Sightseeing tour or is it worth booking a Corfu Private Tour?'' In Blue Tours, we strongly believe that a Corfu Private Tour is the best way to discover our island and below we give you some of the benefits:
1. Explore Authentic Corfu
A private tour in Corfu will give you the unique opportunity to discover the real, authentic side of Corfu. Local knowledgeable guides can share little known island’s stories and give you a local insight into the way of life – something not really possible in large organized groups. A private tour in Corfu organised by a local tour company will allow you to uncover many of the island’s hidden gems that are not usually included in organized sightseeing tours. Get to know how the locals live and experience for yourself what life is really like beyond the standard tourist route!
2. A Customised, Tailor-Made Itinerary
Your tour is customised and the itinerary tailor-made to suit your needs. It is designed around your own interests and preferences whereas in a group the itinerary cannot be changed and you often have to visit places that you are not really interested in. With a Corfu Private Tour, you can travel on your own terms, deciding where and when to stop, how long to spend at each place - a flexibility not available on fixed tours. Your private tour guide will be there to cater to your own needs – something not really possible in a large organised group where the guide has to adapt to the needs of all group members.
3. Value for Money
It may sound hard to believe but a Corfu private tour can really give you value for money. In many cases (especially when families or groups of friends travel together), prices end up being the same or much cheaper than those of an organised big tour operator or cruise line as you avoid paying the high commissions that the latter include. At the same time, you enjoy much better services: a personal guide, a flexible, customised itinerary,a better vehicle and a superior experience!
4. Personal Touch
The private tour is all about you! With your own private, friendly guide there is a personal touch that you can’t have in a larger group. The guide knows your group’s details and preferences in advance and they will offer a personal service focusing on your unique needs and those of your family or friends, which is especially convenient if you are travelling with children or elderly people. On an organised tour, however, you have to travel in a large group with travellers with whom you might not share the same interests.
5. Luxury Transportation
During your Corfu Private Tour, you can enjoy discovering our island in the comfort of a luxury, air-conditioned vehicle, often equipped with wi-fi services and with the services of a professional, experienced driver who is always at your service. On the other hand, taking part in an organised tour, you can sometimes end up being packed in a large bus (sometimes not even air-conditioned) lacking the quality that you would look for in your holidays.
