What people are saying about Zakynthos

Excellent tour. Picked up by a very friendly and informative guide. Boat trip was great to the caves and shipwreck beach. Then some wine tasting, photos of shipwreck beach from above and then lunch in a tavern with a beautiful view of the water. Thanks Spiros! Recommend this tour.

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.

Beautiful experience, very nice to see the wreck beach from above and the boat ride that took us to the wreck beach, I recommend to everyone, the only flaw is that there is no tour of the blue caves

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.

A super complete excursion! And a great guide! Thanks to Vasilis who was top of the line, who made us discover lots of things and who showed us lots of incredible spots!
