ZANTE DELIGHT - ZAKYNTHOS TOWN EXCURSION
An evening Zakynthos tour to the capital of the island
An evening city tour to get acquainted with Zante Town, the capital of your holiday island Zakynthos.Our Zante Delight afternoon – evening tour is focused around uptown and down Zante Town. We start in the late afternoon at the balcony of Zakynthos, in a small village known as "Bochali". This charming little village is situated on the hill above Zakynthos Town and is famous for its breath-taking views. You can’t help but fall in love with this endearing Greek village with its, bougainvillea and jasmine flowers that covers the walls and old lanes. The Greek Orthodoxe Church of Panagia Chrysopigi, dedicated to the virgin Mary with very historical and beautiful icons, is another beautiful feature of this village.
After taking in the majestic panoramic views and the purity of the enchanting Panagia Chrysopigi church, we now make our way to go down hill to find the Solomos wine estate. We will have a lovely wine tour in this beautiful estate and learn about the history of this family run estate and have the opportunity to taste various Solomos wines. Learning how to taste Zakynthos wines is an adventure that will deepen appreciation for both wines and winemakers. Having tasted the very best of local Zante produce, we now travel to the main Town of Zante and the Dionysios Solomos Square.Here your Nefis Travel Zakynthos guide will provide you with a detailed map pointing out the places of interest (like the impressive Church of Saint Dionysios) and will give you an introduction to a wonderful international or authentic Greek dinner, with live traditional music.
Zakynthos town is a beautiful place to visit, the locals are very friendly and the two main squares are a fantastic place to spend an evening. Visiting Zante town with this unique Zakynthos tour will give you a taste of real Greece.

Our guide for the evening was Nikos.
He was very good and again extremely knowledgeable.
Our first stop was a winery where we had a short tour and then drank copious amounts of wine. We were also given the opportunity to buy some but there was no pressure whatsoever.
Next we visited a picture stop which was a very high point overlooking Zante Town. There was also a small church to visit if desired.
Our last stop was in the town itself. We had a short tour and then were left to explore by ourselves.
Another lovely trip. 5*
We booked this trip as we wanted to see Zante town at night but had the added bonus of the winery and the view from Bochali. Again Nikos accompanied us on this trip and was very informative and we had a lovely relaxing evening taking in the beauty of the islands capital.
The trip we did was an absolute bargain of €9 each . We went to zante town for an evening . Firstly we were picked up again in a lovely coach ,the rep was Nikos ,funny guy. We went to a winery ,where we got to sample around 15 different types. We saw the cellar and the vineyards . My husband got a little tipsy . We then went to a view point which over looked the town and all the way to kefalonia and mainland Greece. After this we drove 5 minutes into town. It’s beautiful. We went to a lovely restaurant had great food and entertainment ,then back to tsilivi, which takes 15 minutes. This is a must. We will return and do other trips with nefis. Had a great time.
The evening trip into Zante Town was great. Visiting the winery, view point & then our own time to explore the town. We didn’t eat in the restaurant suggested by Nikos but instead found a small Greek taverna hidden away on the back streets. Would use Nefis Travel again if we were to return to Zante – much cheaper/better value than booking via the big tour operators. Thank you.
Zante delight- visit to solomos wines where you get to sample wines. Everybody is so friendly and helpful answering questions. Off to balcony over zante town, wonderful chance to take some stunning photos. Then off into zante town to have a wonder around the shops and a meal- nefis do recommend a taverna which was lovely and had music and singing however you can choose anywhere to eat.
We booked an evening tour to Zante town. Great value at only €9 each. Included a stop at a winery. Interesting 30-40 mins with plenty of wine to try and no heavy selling.
About 3 hours in town. Just about right
I had the pleasure of going on the Zante delights tour with Nefis Travel and it was amazing wine tasting then a visit to Bochali and then into Zante town the views from Bochali were amazing and the guide was very efficient and had good knowledge thank you Nefis Travel x
Having now been to Zakynthos on 5 occasions, we were fortunate to have Nefis recommended by a friend that has now been to the Island over 20 times! Last year we went on the Shipwreck & Zante Delight tours, this year we repeated these tours & added the Turtle tour too!
Compared to booking through the package tour company, the costs were better, the tours in smaller groups and the guides were genuinely friendly with loads of local knowledge – no surprise to see the same guides the following year. This has the feel of a real family owned and run company. Their work in recycling bottle tops for charity kept us busy collecting too.
Tour commentaries were in both English & Dutch – never a problem, with guides fluent in English, Dutch & Greek.
Highly recommended – no surprises where we’re planning to holiday next year!
The trip was fantastic. We had this recommended to us by our daughter who came in July she told us to go on it as it was great. We loved Bochali, the views were amazing, everything else that followed was equally as good. We cannot praise this enough, Jo was great, if you get a chance please go, it’s worth every penny!!
Hi guys, Just returned from your zante delight tour. I have to say it was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. If there’s a better way to spend 10 euros, then I’d be mightily surprised. And Joanne was brill. Pay her more!!!!Thank you for a great night. Rob
