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.
