What people are saying about Zakynthos

This was a great day out with our guide Theodore who was friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about the area and answering all our questions. He also volunteered to take family photos at all the scenic viewpoints. The minibus tour was great but the high light of the trip had to be the boat excursion to Navagio (shipwreck) beach where you get to spend an hour before being taken to the blue caves. I was amazed how far they took the boat in to the caves, we were lucky that at one of the caves the water was not too choppy and were able to take a quick swim here too. Theodore didn’t join us on the boat trip but his colleague Kostas was also very pleasant. After the boat trip there is a quick lunch stop at a local taverna which was okay - my wife says her prawns were amazing. A quick stop at the oldest olive tree on the island and then back to be dropped if at our accommodation. A thouroughly good day and I felt it was great value.

We were picked up on time in a clean, well-air-conditioned bus. The tour was great. We stopped at many places but were told early on that we wouldn't be able to visit Shipwreck Beach due to high winds that day. Although we weren't able to visit the beach, we did get to visit one of the farms on the island and learned a lot about the history of the farm, met some animals and got to try some delicious wine! Dennis was a lovely tour guide and I'd happily book the tour again.

Nikos was really friendly and knowledgeable about all the locations. He picked us up on time, he gave detailed information on all the stops and we had plenty of time to explore and take pictures. The sunset spot at the end of the tour was fantastic. I would happily book the tour again.

Very simple tour. Get to check out the cave and then you get taken to a beautiful lookout for the sunset. Nice establishment right there for wine beer or other alcohol and snacks as well. Spent it there with my wife and was very romantic and sweet. We enjoyed it very much

Little bit late to pick up, but experience with this price was excellent!
