What people are saying about Zakynthos

Wonderful experience! It is worth doing it according to quality / price. We did everything described. The transfer picked us up at the appointed time, then we took a three hour tour to the wreck beach and the blue caves, with a swim included in the crystal clear waters. Then we headed to xigia beach where we could have a swim there too. Afterwards we went to a typical tavern with a wonderful landscape. On our return we stopped at a small shop along the road of typical products, where there was a free sample of wine, honey, walnuts, jams etc. We returned around 5:00 pm For the offered price of € 50 I would say super approved. Great guide

What an absolutely fantastic opportunity. A full day of adventure. I can't believe how beautiful the island is and the people on our tour. Our guide was the most loveliest man. He Knew his stuff and was very happy, genuine and kind man.

Great trip even for a larger group of people. Lots of interesting places that can only be seen from the water. We were kindly served and learned a lot of interesting information about Zakithos thanks to our driver Heracles.

It was a great experience, our guide was nice and very helpful, the small group is a great idea for convenience

The tour guide was fabulous. Drove around the whole island which was amazing!
