    Great tour company with excellent service and friendly atmosphere. It’s like “belonging” to a family! Whatever the tour whether by cruise or coach I am sure you’ll enjoy both! They really “reach” out to you and take care that you remain happy throughout the day! No overtiring activities, everything is just “right”! Their stops and visits are chosen with extreme care so that you’ll enjoy them. This company does not follow bulk tourist destinations. Tourism at its best!

    Mariska organised for us at very late notice a wonderful tour of Zakynthos Island which included an exclusive trip around the island by air conditioned tourer and an exclusive trip by speedboat.
    Takis was our tour guide for the day and he was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, and very passionate about showing off the island he lived on. He picked us up from our suite at 08:00am and we drove to Agios Nikolaos harbour visiting several locations on the way. Our boat was waiting for us and our skipper for the day Tassos was just great.
    We sped off to Shipwreck Bay so we could miss all the other tourists, when we got to the shipwreck there was just the two of us on the beach, it was great it really was. We then got back onto the boat and went back around the coast at a more leisurely pace to take in the scenery and visit to the Blue Caves and a swim in the ultra-blue water. All again just two of us, which made the trip fantastic.
    The boat dropped us off back at Agios Nikolaos harbour and we then stopped off for coffee before continuing our tour by car. Takis took us everywhere, sightseeing, lunch, local markets, olive factory and much more and during the drive Takis was constantly stopping to explain history, or even just to tell us a funny story.
    We drove down to Laganas bay where the boat picked us up again and we went out to see turtles, unbelievable! We then took in some more coastline before finishing off with a cold beer.
    Takis then took us back to the suite at about 18:30pm after the most amazing day. We then back to our apartment exhausted but so glad that we had booked the tour. Later that evening at dinner the hotel manager came up to us with an envelope! It was from Takis. He came back to the suite later that evening to drop off a memory card with all the days photos on! What a lovely man he was.
    The next day walking through Tsilivi Takis rode passed us on his bike! He stopped and shook my hand and gave my partner a hug and asked if we got the photos OK? Just a really genuine nice guy.
    I can’t thank Nefis enough for a lovely day, and my thanks to Takis for being, well being him!

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:
On our VIP "Once upon a time" tour 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…

At our VIP "Back to the roots" tour they will hear a few nice short Greek mythology stories and see and learn how Zakynthian olive oil and local sweet are made. They 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 VIP Shipwreck and Blue Caves 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!

What happens if the sea conditions are not okay for a tour?

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 give you 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: We will go to the Shipwreck platform by bus so you'll see the Shipwreck from above and we will offer extra time at the Blue Caves for pictures and swimming, and 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 swap 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.
