ZAKYNTHOS VIP TOURS
Exclusive and unique Shore Excursion trips
Zakynthos, the jewel of the Ionian Sea, is home to some of the most photographed and unique places in Greece. The enchanting Shipwreck Bay, the stunning Blue Caves, and the Caretta Caretta turtles are some of the most popular natural attractions that Zante has to offer. If you are visiting Zante for a day as part of your Cruise Liner holiday schedule, Nefis Travel Zakynthos offers the most exclusive and unique Shore Excursion trips. With our fantastic guiding expertise and thorough knowledge of the island Zakynthos, we can tailor make the schedule for you.
Our recommended Shore Experience trip is a combination of the Nefis Travel Zakynthos VIP Shipwreck and Blue Caves excursion together with our Back to the Roots - Zakynthos island tour. This way you are able to seeing the most famous sites on the island with some of the true hidden treasures that Zakynthos has to offer. Throughout our tours we include interesting historical facts about the island of Zante, Greek Mythology and when time allows us, traditional Zakynthian folksongs played specially for you!
You will be collected by the Nefis Travel Zakynthos Mini-Bus at the port in Zante Town, Zakynthos. We pick you up from the tender boat harbour side and deliver you back here at the end of the shore excursion. Leaving Zante Town, driving up the east coast of Zakynthos island, your first stop on will be a fantastic photo opportunity at the top of the Alykes Hills. From here you can see all over the island of Zakynthos, as well as the main land of Greece and the neighbouring island of Kefallonia. After enjoying a beautiful drive along the northern coast of Zante we will stop in the region of the traditional village of Micro Nisi to board the boat for Shipwreck Bay and the Blue Caves. You will have a view of this charming Greek Island village as we make our way out to sea.
The Nefis Travel Zakynthos shore excursion, features a ride on a highly secure and ultra-fast speedboat with a glass bottom. Our first stop of the day is Shipwreck Bay. On our way we are often lucky enough to spot some dolphins and even the local the Monachus Monachus seal. The boat trip from Micro Nisi to Shipwreck Bay usually takes around 25 minutes. We spend time on the famous Shipwreck beach, swimming in the extraordinary turquoise waters and exploring the iconic wreck which lies stranded in the middle of the white-sand bay.
Next on the itinerary of our shore excursion on Zakynthos, is a boat trip into the beautiful Blue Caves of Zakynthos. Our Nefis Travel Zakynthos speedboat has the ability to safely enter the Blue Caves of Zante. We stop to take photos of the sea caves and arches, as well as the stunning translucent blue waters. Those who wish to fully experience the phenomenon of the Blue Caves can take a dip in the blue waters. Your whole body takes on the blue hues and everyone enjoys photographing all the swimming "Blue Smurfs"! Don’t worry though, this is just an optical illusion and the blue hue will disappear once out of the water.
After our sea adventures, we will drive along the West Coast to the traditional Greek road-side market of Matina, where you will enjoy your free Greek snack – a slice of village bread, dipped in olive oil, with olives, oregano and local Zakynthian cheese called Lado-tiri. You have the option to try and buy some local products – including honey, oils, sweets, hand-made carpets and tapestries. Our next destination on our unique Zante island tour is Kampi. Kampi located high along the Zakynthian white cliffs lends itself to the most breathtaking, panoramic sea views in all of Greece. Here you can enjoy delicious home-made Zakynthian meals while being serenaded by guitarist Nico and your guide Jackie! The uplifting sounds of traditional Zakynthian folksongs are always a highlight of the Back to the Roots Zakynthos island tour! After a fantastic meal and beautiful music, we will leave Giri, a good opportunity to sit back and relax on the mini-bus. Off the beaten track views are stunning as we head towards Bochali – a little Greek village overlooking stunning views of Zante Town. From Bochali you will enjoy beautiful island views of your cruise boat waiting in the harbor of Zakynthos.
Nefis Travel Zakynthos makes sure that you will be back in plenty of time from the unique shore excursion for the tender boats to collect you and take you back to your Cruise.
