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.

After taking in the majestic panoramic views, we now make our way to go downhill towards the majestic church of patron Saint Agios Dionysios. The beautiful church interior will enchant you. The church of Agios Dionysios is very impressive with a spectacular wooden temple, marble columns, large chandeliers, icons, stained glass windows, red velvet seats and gold plated detail, it is there where the relics of Agios Dionysios are kept in a silver carved casket.

Along the way, we will also stop at a picture-perfect spot to create a panoramic photo of Zante town but now from the down side. The last stop on our Zante delight tour will be at the main Town of Zante and the Dionysios Solomos Square. Here your Nefis Travel Zakynthos guide will point out the places of interest 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

    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

Our child age is normally 12 years old, but we can be flexible on our "VIP Eco-friendly turtle spotting" tour and "Back to the roots" minibus island tour, if families are travelling with teenagers.

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…
On our VIP Eco-friendly turtle spotting tour, 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 they will also learn a few facts about Odysseus while looking for the treasure.
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! Our family tours are designed to spark a passion, inspire a sense of wonder, and enrich understanding.

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.
