Fantastic trip - a must see when visiting Zakynthos. The order of the program was changed - so we could safely take photos at the vantage point above the wreckage bay. There was a small group of 12 people on the bus, but we were already on the ship as many as 24 - I was hoping that the "VIP" / "semi-private" trip would be more intimate.

Stakis and George are amazing tour guides who make sure that every person on the trip is having a good time. I have been studying abroad for the past 5 months, traveling nearly every weekend, and this is by far the best tour I have been on. Perfect amount of time spent at each location so that you can appreciate Zakynthos’s beautiful sights without getting bored. Highly recommend

The driver was very attentive and made the day special. The mini bus was very comfortable with good air conditioning. The group was small and we could reach all the points quickly. We took very good fotos at the viewpoint of Navaggio and the fotos of us that took the driver were excellent! We ate at a nice tavern typical greek food. Unfortunatelly due to the weather conditions we couldn't swim at Navaggio beach, but we had several opportunities to swim in beautiful places afterwards. I would definitely recommend. Amazing views. Tired and happy at the end of the day.
