My name is Zita Jambor I am an official, licensed tour guide on Corfu. I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary but I have been living on Corfu for almost over two decades. I married here and studied here to get the official license to work as a tour guide.
 

On my tours I show the island and the town as I see and love it. My experience says that our visitors are  very surprised by the rich history, cultural heritage, food and drinks. If you are interested in something special or just simply want a general overview,


​I  can tailor a program to fit with your taste and within your time frame. I would be delighted to look after you and show you my Corfu.

Tour - Old Town

The town is a maze of narrow streets dominated by the 16th century fortress. Around every corner can you can find a chapel, old mansion or secret garden square. The café at the Liston: built by the French in the same style as those in Rue de Rivoli, Paris; is probably the place to 'people watch' while enjoying a Ginger beer. The narrow streets radiating off from the Liston, house small shops of every commercial nature.  St. Spiridon's Church, home to the island's patron 'mummified' saint, is just behind the Liston. Facing the Liston Esplanade is the Old Fort which was built between the 6th & 19th centuries. (The above panoramic picture was taken from the top.) It was built on a man made island and has some stunning architecture.

Tour - Palaiokastritsa

It is famous for being the islands most treasured beauty spot, and becomes busy with day trippers throughout the season. Luxury yachts sail in to admire the back drop of the beautiful green hills, while coaches clog up the narrow roads leading into town! The monastery (Moni Theotokou) located on the headland is the main focus of attention and was built during the 17th century. Visitors are welcome inside to view the famous ceiling carving of the 'Tree of Life'.

Tour - Sissy's Palace

Located in the village of Gastouri on the island of Corfu, Achilleion Palace was built by Empress Elisabeth of Austria in 1890. Designed by Italian architect Raffaello Caritto, the palace was built in a Pompeian architectural style and features paintings and sculptures of Achilles throughout. Among the sculptures is the famous Dying Achilles in the center of the palace gardens, sculpted by the Greek Ernst Herter. After Empress Elisabeth was killed, the German Kaiser Wilhelm II bought the palace and used it as a summer residence. Without a doubt, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Corfu and provides excellent views of Corfu city to the north and of the rest of the island to the south.
