A great tour. Fortunately, the great beach with the shipwreck wasn't that full. Doesn't have to be beautiful in summer anymore. Great the later view from above. The only critical point (other than in the description) was we with a relatively large ship (about 25-30 guests) instead of the booked 10. Allegedly because of the weather (wind / waves). But I couldn't really understand because there were many other smaller boats on the way.

Short version: unique! Sakis is an outstanding tour guide and we were able to experience the greatest day on Zakynthos together with them. Everything worked perfectly and we felt comfortable every second. Our recommendation: do this trip with Sakis and you will have the best time of your vacation - guaranteed. 5 stars aren't enough, because it's incredibly cool!

From the drive, the tour bus, to the beautiful scenic views of zakynthos, it was an amazing experience. Unfortunately we couldn’t do the wine tasting due to it being Easter but it was still great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to experience the island.

Our tour was postponed a day to give us the benefit of better weather; that was really good. Our guide was George's who was excellent. Couldn't recommend higher. Great tour.

Zakis was a fantastic and safe guide/driver. We had a great time with our 4 yr. old. Thank you!
