What people are saying about Zakynthos

Very nice trip!! Everything is very well arranged. We had called for our transport just to be sure. We got a very nice man on the phone who arranged everything. When we arrived at the fishing boat she still knew it was my birthday so congratulated me right away! The guide tells a lot and is very enthusiastic about fishing. Several times we stopped and everything we caught we got for lunch. Freshly prepared by his own mother who was also on board! So highly recommended!!!!!

It was a fun day! Shipwreck beach was cool (although a bit touristy), but it was fun to swim through the blue caves, the drive between stops was pretty, we stopped at a small shop on the side of the road with homemade greek products with free samples, zigia beach was gorgeous, and we had lunch at a traditional greek tavern that was amazing, authentic, and had a beautiful scenic overlook.

A very nice activity with local delicacy. A must for the real wine connoisseur but also the lesser wine connoisseur. Nice guide and it tasted delicious. A Taxi or bob is handy

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!

Great experience! I recommend this activity for everyone.
