Departure is at 9 in the morning. The luxury minibuses will take the guests from pre-set points or from the hotels where they stay. First stop is the "balcony" of Zakynthos, Bohalis: A beautiful hill overlooking the entire town and the plain of the island. It is really a unique place to visit.
Right after Bohalis, the group will follow the road to the village of Pigadakia. A beautiful village in almost the center of the island, where a visit to the farm of organic products of "Therianos" family will take place. The customers will see how wine and oil are traditionally prepared and will try their taste. A unique experience in a traditional place.
Once the visit to the farm is completed, the group will head for beach Xygia on the north side of the island, where the waters are high in sulfur content thus give off a strange smell, but also it is perfect for the physical health and beauty of the swimmers. The customers may swim here if they wish.
Next destination is the harbor of Ag. Nikolaos Volimon, where the guests will board a boat and depart for the famous Shipwreck Beach, where -for one hour- they will be able to swim and take photographs. After the Shipwreck, a visit to the Blue Caves follows. With a small boat, the guests will be able to get into some of them and swim if they wish. The sea tour ends here and the guests will board again on the luxury bus and depart for the rock above the “Ship Wreck” beach, a popular and most frequently photographed viewpoint. On the route to the Shipwreck Rock, the driver will make a stop for photographing the over-a-thousand-year-old olive tree with the huge trunk, located in the villages of Exo Chora.
After this stop, the vehicle will reach the rock above the Shipwreck and the cameras are ‘set on fire’. Next stop is at Kampi , a cape "hanging" over the Ionian Sea, on the west side of Zakynthos. The village is picturesque with stone-built traditional houses and a breathtaking view. It is worth also seeing the huge cement cross, erected in memory of those who fell during the civil war. In the traditional family tavern MIHALIS, the guests can have a delicious meal, if they want.
After about an hour, the bus will take the way back. The passengers will have the opportunity to go through the traditional villages of Zakynthos and admire the lush landscapes of the island hinterland. The excursion ends and the passengers return to their place of accommodation having their minds full of wonderful images and experiences.
If the passengers want something else which is not mentioned in the tour program, they can ask the guide - escort who will take the conditions and weather into consideration and will decide if he can fulfil their desire.
