Everything was planned perfectly. Vassili was kind enough to pick us up in front of the hotel. The guide has enough experience to suggest us the perfect hours when to visit the attractions (before getting very busy) and to visit local attractions that are not known to everyone. A beautiful day spent with beautiful people.

Incredible experience led by our wonderful guide. He was extremely fun, energetic and informative throughout the whole journey. Would highly recommend this tour as you get to explore both the land and sea of Zakynthos and we can confidently say that this tour was the highlight of our whole Europe trip.

I think it was a great deal for the price, we got the private boat tour so we didn't have to share with anyone else, they were perfectly on time, the GPS took us to the right place, definitely recommend going with the first boats before it gets super busy!
