ZAKYNTHOS VIP TOUR

ZANTE SUNSET & SOUTHERN HIDDEN GEMS - ZAKYNTHOS EVENING TOUR

Zakynthos sunset evening tour

In the late afternoon, we travel by a luxury mini bus on our Zante sunset tour, through a scenic route which as we make our way to the Wine estate Gramsas, known for its authenticity and great Zakynthian hospitality. At this picturesque wine estate you will be able to taste the best traditional wines of Zakynthos and hear about Zakynthian traditions of winery. Zakynthos wine tasting is an adventure in itself that will deepen appreciation for both wines and winemakers.

Having tasted the very best of local Zante produce, we will return to the minibus and drive on our Zakynthos sunset tour to the village of Lagopodo. We will step back in time at the Panagia Eleftherotria, a beautiful brick-red and whitewashed monastery with one of the most picturesque stunning panoramic views over the village. From this viewpoint, you’ll catch glimpses of the surrounding olive groves and the bay of Lagana across the deep blue waters of the Ionian Sea.

As soon as the door opens we are welcomed and charmed by an uplifting community of Orthodox nuns. Who will introduce us to their way of living and show us some fantastic frescoes, icons and magnificent items of the holy land, all framed with stories from the past. This enchanting monastery has a beautiful garden with potted plants and a flower bed that invites us to visit. There are some gorgeous golden mosaics in the arch ways and a gift shop that sells items that are hand made by the nuns.

We will drive direction south of the island and see mesmerizing Zakynthian villages with sweeping country along the way. We will stop for an important photo snap, as we will be greeted by a breathtaking panoramic view of Marathonisi better known as Turtle Island. The endless blue with green background will create some amazing photos and beautiful memories of the Island. We will visit the tantalizing well of Greek Historian Herodotus. Here your guide will unfold the amazing history which goes back to 480 BC.

Back on the Zante sunset tour minibus we continue our journey to a hidden treasure at the mountains. A beautiful village of stone houses with has preserved its authentic character. It’s is here that we take an evening stroll; it all conveys the idea of a simple life in a place where time seems to have stopped, while we are saturated with all the beautiful Greek impressions and traditions. After this wonderful meeting of Greek delight we now move towards our final sunset destination for one of the most breathtaking, panoramic sunsets in all of Greece. Only the lucky visitors make it down this road, as this is a difficult spot to find, if you’re not local. We greeted by Irma and her Family, who will introduce you to the Zakynthian traditional way of cooking. We will enjoy delicious food dishes, while the horizon lights up with swirls of pink and orange, fading to blue and purple over the Ionian Sea.

Our VIP Zante Sunset & Southern Hidden Gems tour will be a great insight to see some of the authentic and rural life in the south of the island combined with a beautiful panoramic sunset to enjoy.

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.

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.
