We had a fantastic day on the island of Zakynthos with our friendly and pleasant guides. The great thing about the private tour is that it was adjusted to meet our interests and preferences. The guides changed their standard program and we were able to see more places that we loved and get a sence of what life on the island is like. In one day on the tour we saw more of Zakynthos than during our entire visit, and at the same time thanks to the care of our guides it was a relaxing and smooth journey. I highly recommend this tour for those who look for hidden gems and enjoy getting to know local people.

Nice driver showed us many places on the island where we otherwise would not have come on our own, wonderfully private too, always the possibility to stop somewhere to take pictures. Possibility to go swimming, tasted delicious wine even though I am not a fan of wine myself and my girlfriend is a “lightweight”. Definitely recommend.

Amazing tour that allows you to visit many places in one day. Fantastic opportunity to visit the beach and swim. Using a not too big boat for the excursion you can see the Blue Caves up close and enter some ... spectacular!

Amazing experience. 100% recommend! It’s been worth every euro I paid for it! Especially the guide George was very kind and took the best photos of me! I was solo travelling and I’m glad I choose this trip.

Amazing day on Zakinthos! The whole Dali crew was amazing and George was the best guide ever and an even better human being! You can’t go wrong with Dali!
