What people are saying about Zakynthos

Very nice. The tour guide was very chatty and kind. We saw turtles and the beautiful Keri caves. Just the island was in my opinion the only bad thing because it’s so crowded you can’t even lay down and there is a rope limiting the excess to the island which is only like 5m from the coast

Staff is friendly, especially where the slides are I guess lifeguards . Food not so much. Coffee wasn't a coffee I think it was something else. By over all highly recommend. It's lots of fun.

Amazing experience! Went to the Keri caves and Marathonisi both where we could go swimming and snorkeling. After we cruised around the Laganas bay a little while and spotted a turtle!

Very nice boat tour, with the opportunity to swim in a great blue

Easy to book, very efficient and the place is super fun
