Mass tourism, run away

If you want to loose one day of your holiday go there. The captain hits several times other boats, we were too many people in the boat, no shadow a few people. Poor turtles always disturb by motors and crazy people. It was boring and they are so many more beautiful things to see in this island If you really love turtles please don’t go.

first..we already informed TripAdvisor about your bad and unreal review, and we believe that you delibretly wanted to write bad about our very successful tours, and it seems you did not even joined our tour at all.. why..? 1..OUR TWO BOATS ARE MEDIUM SIZE WITH CAPACITY MAX.22 PERSONS..90% OF EACH HAS SUNROOF FOR SHADOW AND OUR TWO CAPTAINS ARE LOCAL WITH MORE THAN 15 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. 2..YOU DID NOT MENTION OUR VISIT TO KALAMAKI NESTING BEACH AS PART OF THE NATIONAL MARIN PARK OF ZAKYNTHOS TO INFORM US ABOUT THE TURTLES AND WHY THEY ARE IN DANGER OF EXTINCTION AND HOW TO PROTECT THEM? NEITHER YOU MENTIONED THAT WE ALWAYS SAIL IN A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE TURTLES AND THE CAPTAIN ALWAYS INFORMS THE VERY SMALL BOTS HOW TO BEHAVE AND SAIL FAR ENOUGH FROM THE TURTLES. 3..YOU MENTIONED NOTHING ABOUT OUR VISIT TO THE ECO-OLIVE OIL PRESS MUSEUM. 4..AND HERE IS A REVIEW ON GYG, FROM ONE OF OUR [ REAL CUSTOMERS [not fake like you] ON JUNE 12th.. Absolutely love it! Unforgettable experience. Definitely would recommend it. Saw a turtle within the first 10 minutes. Had a lovely swim by the caves (remember to take your own snorkeling gear). Then went to Turtle Island - which was a bit busy but the rest of the experience made up for it. Lastly, went to see how they made olive oil. The testers were delicious! You are also able to purchase many olive oil-based products. Our guides were so happy, cheerful, and helpful. Such lovely people! 10/10 experience!

Great but very commercial

Don’t expect too much of it. You’ll see the Keri caves (beautiful) and turtle island (tourist trap) but you won’t get much information about the turtles or the caves. Although they did go over the “max 12 group”- line, we had about 18 people on the boat, it still felt small and okay. We loved our driver, Mario, who speaks a little English. Recap: had a great day but don’t expect to get much education about the scenery

I want to thank Dali for the great experience and the understanding that they showed. The trips were well organized and we got to spend some time at great locations on the island. Experience that you cannot forget. We saw a turtle and we were greeted pretty well by the whole team. I want to thank George and Alex who were our drivers and were truly amazing people.

Need better AC

This tour was good. We got to see one turtle. Got to go swimming for a good amount of time at each stop. Didn’t care for the olive oil tour. Overall, this tour was very organised. We got frozen water, which we needed because it was very hot. The only thing I would change is get a van with way better AC.

Dear guest, we value your honesty and take any feedback seriously into consideration. If you have any other suggestions about how we could do better in the future feel free to contact us! Moreover, keep in mind that we cannot force nature and these kind creatures to amuse us but we always hope to meet as many of them as possible! We hope to see you again someday.

10/10 excursion
Paula_V
, Jul 2021
Everything about this excursion was 10/10 from top to bottom. Pick up was on time in a clean mini van, driver was very informative and friendly. Each destinations was well explained and we were given a good time in each place to walk around and take pictures. We were also provided with some cold bottled water at the beginning of the trip which was great as it was very hot. the captain of the boat was very friendly and patient so that we could see the turtle come up to the surface of the water as they are under water usually and all in all the staff were great and the excursion was very well planned and smooth running.

You can tell that Mr. Khalifa is indeed a very nice man who tries to give his clients an excellent tour. He is polite and courteous and provides a nice experience. Buses are nice and clean with good air conditioning. This is a good tour and you get to see the things that are listed.

Good half day

This was the 2nd of 2 tours that we did with this tour company. Convienent pickup and drop off at our hotel, which was right next to their tour offices in Zante Town. Our driver was a nice guy, as were all the people we came across with this company. We liked the tour, just kind of wished we had more time at Cameo Island, that was kind of disappointing. They need to change that. Overall though, a great half day and reasonably priced.

Uma desilusão de excursão
Isabel_S
, Jul 2022
Apenas gostei da paragem nas cavernas. Veículo com ar condicionado avariado, barco com pessoas a mais para os lugares disponíveis. Vimos uma ou dois tartarugas e a paragem na ilha Marathonisi também não foi boa. Muita gente, praia com água linda, mas com pedras, não tendo sido previamente avisados que devíamos levar sapatos adequados. A paragem na fábrica do azeite é escusada e aborrecida e com o objectivo de venderem produtos.

Véritable moment de plaisir. Nous avons pu observer une tortue dans son habitat naturel. Le guide nous a fait découvrir des endroits magnifiques et a pris son temps pour nous expliquez l’histoire de l’île. Je recommande fortement pour les amoureux de la nature et de la flore.
