What people are saying about Xigia Sulfur Beach

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 860 reviews

the trip is very carefully planned in my opinion. each stop of the tour is scheduled at a time to optimise the experience of the visitor, for example the viewpoint of navagio early in the morning so there is not really a line and also no one on the beach yet, the visit to navagio when there is still ample shade one the beach etc. I would have preferred less time at navagio and more time to swim at the second beach we visited, which was incredibly beautiful and with fewer people. the restaurant we stopped for lunch was tasty with very friendly staff. it was also incredible to see the two thousand year old olive tree, this was very special. the scenery of the tour was beautiful, so driving place to place was incredibly pleasant. Elias the guide was great company and cared a lot about each person on the tour.

It is one of the most expensive trips in Zakynthos, but it is worth every single euro! Astonishing beaches and places which you should not miss...Small group, great guidance, beautiful beaches, great organization, awesome restaurant with tasty food...No wonder it has the best reviews! Absolutely beautiful...There are many trip providers, but non of them gives you so much as this one...
