What people are saying about Laganas

We got picked up at our hotel and had a lovely guide. They provided us with water and headed of to the first beach on the main land where the turtles laid their eggs. Then we continued to board and drove to the caves where we had a lovely swim. After the sightseeing of the caves we had the possibility to swim at an island beach and eat something when you wanted to. After being in and on the water for some time we arrived back on the main land and ended the day with a short tour in the lovely olive oil museum where we were provided with tastings and were able to buy lovely olive oil based products.

The tour guide was really helpful, good arrangement (sufficient time in each stop, toilet time, swimming…) but the tour was a bit crowded as they eventually combine two groups of people into one boat. The glass bottom boat is a bit packed and passengers at the back can hardly see the glass bottom. but overall I will still recommend this tour to those who wanna do sea turtle spotting and visit the southern part of Zakinthos, really worth visiting!

Our host was absolutely lovely and so accommodating. We were picked up from our hotel on time and given cold water. The trip itself was spectacular and we were able to see a gorgeous sea turtle. We swam by the beautiful white cliffs and spotted jellyfish, crabs and various fish. The glass bottom boat was a fun extra to look through. We enjoyed the olive oil museum and took home some delicious garlic oil. 10/10 day out, I would recommend!!

Actually got to see turtles on the sea bed and one coming to the surface for air. Really enjoyable trip, chances to swim and visited the olive oil factory and taste some samples. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable

Beautiful experience, we saw turtles and swam in crystal clear water.
