Zakynthos: Romantic Sunset Tour to Mizithres & Agalas Cave

2. Zakynthos: Romantic Sunset Tour to Mizithres & Agalas Cave

Your guide collects you from your accommodation or a selected location, beginning your journey with a visit to Cameo Island, the second most photographed site in Zakynthos. Traverse a 100-meter-long rope and wooden bridge to explore the enchanting Cameo Island, where the sighting of a turtle adds to the magic of the place. Next, head to one of Zakynthos's most breathtaking viewpoints—Myzithres Rocks. Stand atop the cliff and marvel at the dramatic landscapes sculpted by centuries of seismic activity. The twin conical-shaped rocks, carved from white limestone, dominate the scenery. Here, the wild waters meet steep mountain slopes, creating a photographer's paradise. Further along the southeast coast, your guide points out the deepest part of the Mediterranean, known as the "Well of Oinouson," plunging approximately 4,500 meters below sea level. Capture these moments with help from your knowledgeable guide, who ensures you leave with photos that encapsulate the stunning views. Your adventure continues as you wind through traditional stone houses and narrow lanes towards the Damianos Cave. Local legends weave tales of a colossal dragon, setting the stage for your exploration of this two-tiered cave adorned with stalactites and stalagmites. Featuring dual entrances, one stacked above the other, the cave offers a cool respite. Inside, the lush hills and expansive sea views stretch out before you. Conclude your day at the Sunset Agalas snack bar, where you can relax and watch the sun dip below the horizon, before being dropped back at your accommodation.

Overall rating

When I initially booked this, there were no reviews so I was hesitant. I'm very glad to have gone ahead because the tour was an excellent start to the vacation! The guides were amazing, took great pictures and had great drone shots too for us. We saw stunning views, visited a great viewpoint and also saw an interesting cave with some cool history behind it. Definitely feel free to book. Very friendly guides and who also even helped us book another tour for the Monday because we didn't have anything planned in advance. Great communication, experience and memories.

Very nice! My friend and I were the only customers for the tour, so we enjoyed a VIP service. Zach is very helpful and nice! He took excellent pictures for us and introduced the beautiful sceneries. And Mike is the best driver! He drove steadily and prevented us from walking on the stony road. Overall very good experience!

The activity was superb!!! Todoris is a very kind, professional and very funny guide! He accompanied us all afternoon and taught us a lot about Greece. We recommend Todoris!

Spyros is a great guide, he will make it a memorable experience ! Definitely recommend !! Thank you again for the experience

Very comfortable and well paced and we got to know some interesting stories about Zakynthos
