Zakynthos to Olympia.

Picked up and dropped off to meet the tour at the harbour. Our guide, Nikos, was a great character. Really helped set the tone.

Nice comfortable ferry ride to Killini. An hour drive to Olympia.

Olympia itself is great, but even better was the Olympia tour guide arranged by Nefis. She really was passionate and her knowledge & enthusiasm really helped bring Olympia to life.

This is an absolute 100% must do trip.

Fantastic morning watching turtles and swimming in the beautiful water off turtle island and Keri caves. Most importantly the boat kept its’ distance and we were able to watch 3 of them!! Luci the Nefis guide was great and the boat crew friendly. The transfer coach was only a couple of mins late but very nice and organised. We had our two sons with us who are 6 and 7 and loved the pirate game and finding ‘treasure’ in the boat. The boat can be a little tricky to get in and out of for the less mobile and for young children as it is a bit of a climb off a ladder- but the swim and snorkelling are worth it! Drinks and snacks can be purchased on board. Would thoroughly recommend this trip and for 68 euros for us four I think is good value. The boat holds 90 passengers but they only book 45 so there is plenty of room. The presentation from Archelon was really informative and fantastic that they do such important work- was very happy to contribute a donation towards the preservation of these beautiful creatures.

My husband and I went to see Turtle Island and the Keri Caves with Nefis Travel last Friday. We didn't regret it. We had the opportunity to watch a turtle and go swimming in the crystal blue sea. It was a real highlight of our holiday in Zakynthos.

First time we've booked an excursion on holiday as I don't like travelling and not sure about boats but we really enjoyed ourselves. 32 euros each for a half day experience but in reality we were picked up at 8am and dropped off at 4pm.

The coach was comfortable and tour guide friendly and knowledgeable. After pick ups we traveled to a viewpoint for photos before heading to a taverna for coffee (we arrived about 9.30am). From here we got on a boat to shipwreck beach. Glad we opted for the morning excursion. Although half of the beach was in shade it wasn't too busy or hot. We stayed here for an hour before getting back on the boat and heading to the blue caves. The navigator stopped at points where we could get the best photos. We then had a 20 min swim in waters where you could see up to 8ft deep.

Back at the Taverna most people had lunch; this wasn't included in the price and we thought the meals were expensive so we just got a drink. The coach then took us to another beach on the way home where we got a snack for half the price. We stayed here about 40 mins.

It was a great day out and Nefis offered a very friendly, safe and professional service.
