Begin with a visit to the Achillion Palace, built by Queen Sissy of Austria at the end of the 19th
century. The Empress's obsession with the Greek mythology and especially with Homer's Iliad &
Ulysses influenced the whole architecture and decoration of the palace, which is built in neoclassical style and has elements of Ionian, Roman and Eolithic styles. Its gardens are decorated
by many sculptures and have stunning views on the island.

After leaving the Achilion, the excursion continues with a panoramic drive with a quick stop at
the most photographed view point from where you can admire the famous landmark – the Mouse Island and Vlacherna monastery at the Kanoni peninsula.

After you will head to "Mavromatis," a liquor factory where liquor and brandy are made from
kumquat fruit. Enjoy a 5 minute long documentary about the process of production of this
liquor, and then get the chance to taste the liquor and brandy for yourself.

Paleokastritsa, your next stop, is one of the most special places on the island. Admire five pineclad promontories and small bays of yellow sand or white pebbles, shelving into crystal clear
waters. Or, visit a 13th century Byzantine Monastery, offering church, Byzantine icon museum
and old olive press. This would be a great place to eat lunch, as fine taverns are ready to satisfy
your hunger with delicious local sea food. Afterwards head to Bella Vista, the famous lookout
where you can get a great view of Corfu Island, Mainland Greece and Albania.

Now you will come to Corfu Town, where you will take a short guided tour around the center of
the Town. See the exceptional mixture of architecture influenced by four great civilizations: the
Old Fortress, New Fortress, famous Liston Street, The Royal Palace and the Saint Spyridon
church, named after the Patron Saint of the island.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
