    This was going to be a short excursion as our cruise ship was only in port for a short day and since we had spent so much time sightseeing, we felt (6 of us) that this would be a nice break. It was, and even more. We were met at the cruise port by the rep and a private van with a wonderful driver (Dora) took us to Glyfada Beach. We were given beach beds with umbrellas at a private beach club and were provided with ice and water. Waiter service was available for drinks and food which we took advantage of.

    The beach was beautiful with dark hot sand, but it was the water of the sea that made this so special. Crystal clear water. It was amazing. We swam, ate and drank and then promptly as promised, our driver Dora returned to take us back to our ship.

    We would recommend this to anyone looking for a fantastic beach break.

    We enjoyed our beach trip which was about a half hour drive away. The beach was lovely and the beach club provided ice, water, soft drink, umbrella and comfortable lounges. We had about 3 hours there. On the beach we met up with the ship's tour group who paid about double the price for an hour less time at the same club! We found a massage place on the beach which gave a great couples massage for 85 euros for both of us nd was 50 minutes long. We were shown the way down to the beach by the bus driver and were given no further details. We were left at the top of a long hill which is very difficult to maneuver if you have breathing or knee issues. We called the company and they did come down the hill to pick us up for our return but I would talk to them beforehand if you have walking problems. There were many wasp like insects around so if you have sting allergies, be aware.All in all we enjoyed the day despite the inconveniences.

    Arrived in Corfu on NCL Star last week of July 2019. Booked trip in advance. Excursion representative was waiting when we got off the boat. Went to bus and waited to leave. Although we were supposed to leave at 10:30, some people were late getting of the boat (their own fault) so we waited close to 15 min. Bus a little warm but it was a very hot day. We arrived about 20 min late to Glyfada but it was worth waiting for. Very nice beach. Clean, warm water, some waves to make it interesting. Chairs very comfortable. The bus was delayed a half hour picking us up but that was fine with us as the beach was great and we wanted to stay. Made it back on time. Definitely worth doing. I note that NCL went to a different beach but I can't imagine it was better than Glyfada.

    This was a very good investment. The beach was wonderful and the service was exceptional. Be prepared to walk up and down hills.

    This was a great day. The beach club was very clean and well maintained. They had the chairs, towels and umbrella as promised. That also had lock boxes on the umbrella to use to secure your valuables so you could enjoy the ocean. That was a very pleasant surprise. The sand was soft and the water cool. The staff was very attentive. I would highly recommend this excursion.

    The tour was a little disorganized because they combined groups from 2 different ships. The driver taking us to the beach got lost twice so it took extra long to get there. He dropped us off and we were left to find our own way to the place we were supposed to be. Once we figured that out, it was a very good day in the sun. We had water, sun beds and an umbrella included plus 1 soft drink. The staff at the Pazuzu was excellent, very attentive and we felt like our valuables were safe. The tour company sent a small bus for us as we had more time than the group from the other ship, so in the end they did make it right. It would be helpful to have someone there to show us where to go, but otherwise a really good getaway.

    This was a great tour. Made getting to and from the beach very easy. the only thing I would suggest is that you stay on top of the tour company representative at the port. There is a large window in which they wait for all the members of the tour to gather. We were the first off the ship but had to wait 40 minutes for the others to come and meet us. Therefore we lost over 1/2 of an already short visit to the island.

    Glyfada Beach is beautiful . . . clear, blue water soft sand excellent amenities. Our greeter at the port was excellent. Transportation to and from the beach was perfect and effortless. Our reception at the beach was less impressive. We were greeted by name at the beach and escorted to two beach chairs in the second row. When we pointed out that there were 3 of us, and that we had paid for 3 lounges, the gentleman offered us a sandy beanbag laying nearby. When we declined, he gave us 3 lounges, but failed to bring us water, which he had brought to everyone else. Later, he dropped some tickets on our table, without explanation. We ended up buying a delicious lunch at the restaurant, but we felt rushed to give up our seats on the beach.

    We loved this beach and were given great service! We did have to wait longer that anticipated at the port due to the van filling up and having to send a 2nd one out to get us. The drive also spoke very little English and just dropped us off and gave us a time to be picked up. We had to guess at the beach rental we were to go to, but we made it and had a lovely day.

  • 18-Jul-2018

    The excursion included a transfer from the Port, a few hours at a beach with a ticket for one non-alcoholic beverage, chaise lounges, and a towel. The service was exactly as advertised. We were met at the Port by a guide who directed us to a large van. The pick-up driver at the beach (for the ride back) was right on time. The time at the beach was shorter than we would have preferred, but this was constrained by the ship's schedule, not by the tour operator. The beach is sandy, not rocky, and was prettier than any other Greek Beach that we saw on the cruise.
