The VIP ‘yes I do’ wedding proposal, with our 100% success rate!  Is a winner among those who are looking for a surprise for their beloved once while on Holiday on Zakynthos.

Imagine, for months or maybe years you have been thinking of making the most romantic marriage proposal, your prayers have now been answered! Nefis Travel Zakynthos have created the following for you and your loved one. In a luxury minibus with chauffeur, you will drive to an idyllic harbour town where a captain will be waiting for you to board a private speedboat. You will cruise to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the Shipwreck beach of Zakynthos. Once the tourists arrive on “your beach”, the captain will whisk you off to your own blue lagoon. It is here on the white beach that you will open your picnic basket which holds the champagne that you will sip whilst watching the most enchanting blue sea and ask that important question “will you marry me”?

Or … maybe you have a more active approach and you prefer to go on horseback, exploring the beautiful olive groves to a picturesque church where a table is reserved for you with delicious Zakynthian food. From this church you have an enchanting view, where you will instantly fall in love!  And will wait for the important words, “Yes, I will”.

VIP YES I DO - Wedding proposal

In september 2014 heeft mijn (inmiddels) man, samen met hulp van Jackie en uiteraard zonder mijn weten een heel romantisch tafeltje voor twee gereserveerd. Alles klopte, het adembenemende uitzicht, de romantisch gedekte tafel en stoelen, helemaal in het wit (!) de mooie bloemen op tafel en uiteraard ook een fles champagne. Het was alsof we een filmset opliepen. Toen we eenmaal zaten werd er ook nog op de gitaar het Griekse liefdeslied voor ons gespeeld. Mijn man had van te voren gezegd dat hij mij mee uit eten zou nemen, dus vermoedde ik niks en dacht dat dit allemaal erbij hoorde. Totdat hij op 1 knie ging en mij ten huwelijk vroeg... YES I DO! Voor ons klopte alles die avond en inmiddels zijn wij al een aantal maanden getrouwd. Wil iedereen die hieraan heeft meegewerkt heel erg bedanken en uiteraard in het bijzonder Jackie! Thank you!Stefan and Magda van Rossum

Marriage Proposal”

After booking a summer holiday in Tsilivi I researched the internet for a nice spot to propose. In doing so I stumbled across Nefis Travel website and their suggestions. As I also wanted to see the shipwreck beach and blue caves I thought it a nice idea to combine both.I contacted Nefis Travel for information and Jackie, the owner, replied immediately. She asked for my preferences and upon that provided me with ideas and information. The very first thing she wrote to me was that Nefis Travel has a 100% YES-rate on the marriage proposal tours.On the day we got picked up at 7.30 sharp by our guide Spiros. We had a nice ride to the harbour with some beautiful stops along the way and got a lot of information about Zakynthos. Spiros and I tried to communicate about the day as subtle as possible which made a lot of fun, because it should, of course, be a surprise. By then my girlfried still thought we would take the tour on a loud, crowded ship with way to many people until she saw the private speed boat.Our captain, a very experienced one, got us fast and smooth to the shipwreck beach were Spiros told us about the history of the shipwreck beach and about the fantastic blue colour of the water. After some pictures taken and plenty of time with almost no people around to explore the beach we took off to our small and private little bay. Spiros who knows the bays around very well suggested this special one to me as it was secluded and only accessible via the sea.Despite some massive rocks on the way to the beach our captain managed to drop us off safely and dry for our lunch break and my big moment. Nefis provided us with a lunch bag and cool drinks. After a swim, some sandwiches and a cool drink I proposed. She said YES!!! :-)Spiros who was waiting with the captain on the boat outside the bay took a dive into the water and swam to the beach to serve us with champagne. It was great.On the way back to Micronissi we were shown several small and fantastic blue caves which could only be reached by our small speed boat. A swim into one of the caves was also possible.Our last stop was at Xigia beach to take a swim in the sulphur rich sea before we were safely dropped off at the entrance to our hotel again. Before leaving the car Spiros handed us a bottle of wine from Jackie as a present in case of a YES.Spiros and our captain made this day memorable for us. It couldn't have been any better than this!We also would like to say a big THANK YOU to Spiros who not only guided us smoothly through the day, but also is a perfect driver, has a huge knowledge of Zakynthos, its culture and its people and took a lot of pictures of us to remember this day even better.Despite the fact that we never met Jackie in person we are positive that whatever you agree with her will be followed through. She organizes everything very smoothly from behind scenes.

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.
