We had a fantastic day on the island of Zakynthos with our friendly and pleasant guides. The great thing about the private tour is that it was adjusted to meet our interests and preferences. The guides changed their standard program and we were able to see more places that we loved and get a sence of what life on the island is like. In one day on the tour we saw more of Zakynthos than during our entire visit, and at the same time thanks to the care of our guides it was a relaxing and smooth journey. I highly recommend this tour for those who look for hidden gems and enjoy getting to know local people.

Nice driver showed us many places on the island where we otherwise would not have come on our own, wonderfully private too, always the possibility to stop somewhere to take pictures. Possibility to go swimming, tasted delicious wine even though I am not a fan of wine myself and my girlfriend is a “lightweight”. Definitely recommend.

Good English speaking guide who showed the beautiful vineyard. Then 7 delicious wines tasted, each with a fantastic story. We also got tasty snacks. Enjoyed the peace and the beautiful piece of land that the Goumas family has!

A very great wine tasting with delicious wines. The hosts were so incredibly nice and hard-working. You could try 7 wines and there was delicious cheese, bread, olives, olive oil, etc. anytime gladly again. Really great!!!!

Had a wonderful wine tasting. We were a little early, but this was no problem. The lady helped us very nicely. First did a tour of the vineyard and then explained how they work. Then tasted 7 wines with delicious snacks!
