The unique factor of the VIP Kefalonia island tour excursion is that we travel by Luxury Midi bus. Travelling with a smaller group results in more flexibility on the Kefalonia island tour and an opportunity to meet the locals and their Kefalonian hospitality! The excursion VIP Kefalonia island daytrip starts early in the morning with transfers from your Zakynthos resort.

We will continue our road to Agios Nicholas, the most northern part of Zakynthos, where the local ferry will take you to the neighboring island of Kefalonia. The boat trip on the ferry takes about an hour and has fantastic views both to Kefalonia itself and return to Zakynthos. The chance to see dolphins is certainly present.

Upon arrival at the small harbor Pessada, the southern tip of Kefalonia, we will resume our Kefalonia island tour excursion by bus. We visit the Kefalonia beautiful natural highlights such as the famous Myrthos beach at a panoramic picture point. The beautiful cave-lake of the Nymphs Melisissani lake, a real gem, discovered in the 1950s. The stalactites that decorate its walls betray its true age, which is estimated at 16,000 to 20,000 years. The green and blue colors created by the sun’s rays give to the crystal clear waters a unique setting. We take a memorable ride on one of the many boats designed for this purpose.

Next stop at this unique Kefalonia island tour excursion by bus is at the Drogerati cave, we will stroll through an incredible beautiful fairytale of stalagmites and stalactites. The Drogerati cave is a true geological monument, the atmosphere inside the cave overwhelms its visitors. The main hall has incredible acoustics, so don’t be surprised if you see a podium for concerts in the middle. You might even try out your own Greek X factor talent! These more commercialized stops are the must do’s on the island of Kefalonia. Nefis Travel Zakynthos will make sure these stops on the Kefalonia daytrip are planned in time, no waiting in line with the crowds!

Our lunch at the picturesque seafront tavern is another highlight on our Kefalonia excursion. You will have time to enjoy: Greek cuisine, a refreshing dip in the sea or a walk to the nearby famous lake, not to mention the breathtaking views of the island of King Odyseus Ithaca. Back on board the Nefis Travel Kefalonia daytrip, we will first continue our journey down the valley, set amongst beautiful vineyards, before the Nefis Travel Zakynthos Kefalonia excursion will move deeper into the mountains of Kefalonia, taking in majestic views of the national park of Mount Enos along the way.

We travel to the Monastery of Saint Gerasimos, patron saint of Kefalonia, the convent , which is still used daily and where the friendly nuns designate the sights , the silver shrine with the holy relics of Saint Gerasimos, but also the cave where Saint Gerasimos lived for many years. A pilgrimage to the Greeks in the summer time, a special place to visit . During our journey back to the ferry, on this VIP Kefalonia island tour excursion, we will stretch our legs in a very welcoming and authentic village, you be charmed by the locals with their Kefalonian hospitality and meet Grandma Henrrieta who will invite us to her working studio with handmade rugs, guaranteed one of the highlights of the day !

Kefalonia with her rich mythical history and many legends, has one big question that remains, where did King Odyseus live? Kefalonia or Ithaka? Join us on this Odyssey!

This tour takes 1 or 2 times a week.

Kefalonia and St Dennis

We felt strongly that we wanted to tell everybody about nefis travel. We had looked at their reviews before we booked and we weren't at all disappointed. We booked our trip to kefelonia while still in the UK. Communications by e mail were prompt and helpful. On our arrival we met up and paid. All things were perfectly explained. The day it's self was just amazing. Our guide Jo was wonderful. I cannot express how good this company is and would say that this trip made our holiday. Thank you nefis travel and we loved kefelonia so much we are booking to stay there. Regards Sharon, Julian and Callum. X

Are the tours child friendly and what is considered child age?

Our child age is normally 12 years but can be flexible if families are travelling with teenagers.

We have very child friendly tours:

Traveling as a family is important to family bonding, and will create memories that will live with you for very long. Travel should be life changing, eye opening, exciting – and engaging for all ages…

On our VIP ‘Once upon a time’ the children and young at heart will step back in time and by interactive stories will enter the world of Aesop and his enchanting  and inspiring stories. They will learn a little Greek poem and while we sit around the camp fire singing songs, you might drift away to your own childhood memories…

On our VIP eco-friendly turtle tours, we will have a presentation from the Sea protection Society Archelon where the children will learn about the high endangered Caretta- Caretta Turtles and in a pirate game the will also learn a few facts about Odysseus while looking for the treasure.

At our ‘ back to the roots  ‘  island tour they will hear  a few nice short Greek mythology stories and see and learn how Zakynthian  olive oil and local sweet are made. The can sing along with the live music over lunch and the tour has many stops, what means that they will be out and about and entertaint the whole day. Many of our little Nefis friends have  send us beautiful drawings, from this unique tour afterwards.

At our shipwreck and Blue cave tour the children might see dolphins or our Monachus monachus seals and  get guided with nice stories about Zante. On certain days they will be able to enter a pirate game at the Smugglers Cove, please do ask about this opportunity!

Our family tours are  designed to spark a passion, inspire a sense of wonder, and enrich understanding.

What if the sea conditions are not okay, will you cancel the tour or do I get a refund?

We at Nefis Travel provide the highest level of customer service given on the island.

If the weather reports are bad, we will cancel the tours and you give a refund.

If the weather shows a 50-50 situation, we will phone you on your mobiles or at the hotels before the tour starts and tell you that we might have to use an alternative program. This only happens on the shipwreck and blue caves tours. The east coast of the island as in Blue caves and Xingia Sea Spa and the west coast as in shipwreck beach is possible to have 2 totally different sea conditions.

Our captains will check the situation early in the morning and if we see that the Blue caves and Xingia Spa, east coast are okay but around cape skinari on our way to the west coast,   the sea doesn’t allow us to go to the Shipwreck beach, we will create plan B:

Plan B; Go to the Shipwreck platform by bus so you see the shipwreck from above and we will offer extra time at the Blue caves for pictures and swimming, go to the Xingia sea spa after our lunch stop. We will tell you honestly what the situation is and leave the choice to you. You can swop your trip around and go on another day, take a refund or decide to come.

From our experience those who came on these few rare days that this happens in the summer, still had a great day out. And as we said it is a 50-50 situation sometimes the wind drops, while we drive to the harbor and we can still sail to the Shipwreck beach. We at Nefis Travel just want to be as straight forward about as we can be and will always be honest about the weather conditions.

Is lunch included on the tours? May I bring a lunch box?

Lunch is NOT INCLUDED on any of the Nefis Travel tours, but our dear Nefis Travel guests are more than welcome to bring their lunch boxes on the tours. The tavernas that we work with are informed about this extra service at Nefis travel and you are even allowed to bring your lunch boxes into the tavernas used on the tours.
