There is a type of traveller that finds fascinating the idea of tasting the numerous and special local food and drinking products of each destination they arrive in. If you, your friend or group of friends belong in this group of travellers we have created the ideal mini bus tour for you.
Upon your arrival on our beautiful island your mini bus will be expecting you a few meters away from your cruise ship, just outside the main entrance of the Port. Your mini bus tour of Corfu island starts from the famous Theotoky Estate.
The Theotoky Estate is situated in the centre of Corfu island, in the Ropa Valley. It covers an area of 1100 acres of land full of olive and pine trees and the very best vineyards, famous around the world for its excellent red and white wine.
George Theotokis, the owner of the estate, also cares for sheep, horses and other farm animals by allowing them to grow and reproduce in their natural environment. The Theotoky Estate has been open to the public only in the last years. Arriving with your mini bus tour you will be able to experience the way the famous Theotoky wine is produced and of course to taste it, even to buy some bottles from the small shop inside the Estate.
Another excellent and unique product of Theotoky Estate is the organic extra virgin olive oil and the mouth-watering olives exported across Europe and beyond. You will be able to taste them and of course if you would like to purchase some you can. The Theotoky Estate is one of the few ecological parks in Corfu and you will leave feeling full of the uplifting energy of fresh air, the sun and the unique wine and food products of Theotoky’s Estate. Next stop will be the traditional Corfu village of Sinarades.

The special characteristic of this old village, apart from the narrow streets between the houses, is the special way the houses are built with the forming of “volta” (arches) on the marble doors and the small and narrow stairs leading to verandas (called bontzoi).
The village has 12 churches and a Folklore Museum. Sinarades is a village that has been especially loved by visitors of Corfu, particularly by those who want to discover something beyond the beaches and tourist attractions of Corfu island. Outside Sinarades village is a place called Aerostato up on the hill, where you can admire the magnificent view of Corfu island and the Ionian Sea.
But for you to enjoy the best view of the island, we have planned the next stop of your tour to be the traditional village of Pelekas and the ‘ Kaiser’s Throne ‘. Check for more information about the village of Pelekas on the All Day Tour. Your last stop before driving back to the port so you can board your cruise ship is the old Corfu Town centre.
