I have to agree with all the comments made.
If anyone reading this is planning on marrying abroad I would definitely recommend Tsilivi and Tsilivi Travel. We married in Tsilivi on 4th September this year and couldn’t fault a thing. Our wedding ceremony took place in the gardens at Tsiolis Studios and our reception on a boat. All 62 guest thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The wedding was rather different to your normal wedding in the UK making it all the more memorable. It was very special indeed and surpassed all our expectations.
The day wouldn’t have been what it was if it wasn’t for the hard work and enthusiasm of Frances and her team at Tsilivi Travel. Frances made us feel special and organised our wedding impeccably. She took the stress out of would otherwise have been a very stressful day ~ thank you once again.
can sum1 plz direct to the travel agents from the esculator going up to the shop (a map would be nice if some1 has 1)thanks
Just back from Hols and booked our wedding for Sept 2006. Frances was very informative and we are counting down til the wedding!
There aren't enough words to say what a fantastic service Frances provides, she arranged our wedding and reception on 14 June 2005 and it really was the perfect day. We had a garden wedding at the Tsiolis studios, where we stayed with our 9 guests, and our reception at the Limanaki restaurant in Tsilivi.
A massive thank you to Frances and her team for organising our wedding on 3rd Septebmer 04. Both ourselves and our 18 guests had a fabulous day/night. Everything ran so smoothly we didn't have to worry about a thing. The location - cliff top was breathtaking.
As the wedding was on a Friday and the reception at the Alexandra Beach Hotel - it meant we were able to go to the beach party from 10pm, it was amazing dancing bare feet in my wedding dress til 5am! Perfect ending to the day, there was fire works, fire dancers and fantasic atmosphere.
Highly recommend Frances and Tsilvi Travel if you are planning a wedding in Zante. The choice of packages are excellent and very good value. Thank you again Michelle and James Tate
A great service was provided by Frances before, during and on our return.
10 out of 10 Frances, Paula and Jodie couldn't do more for you. If you are visiting Tsilivi make sure you book trips with them
Thank you so very much for all your help and assistance. Please also extend my thanks to Jodie and the rest of the staff in the agency.We would happily recommend your services and the beautiful resort of Tsilivi to any future travellers. The apartment location (Tsiolis Studios) was just perfect, as you had said, being so close to everything but just outside of the noisy area. Tsilivi provided a safe environment for my two teenage travellers and all the facilties any familly could expect to have on offer. I may be looking to arrange a short break for my parents and their friends in mid October, keep you posted. Once again many thanks for a superb holiday. Kind regards Valerie & Mike
It is difficult to put into words just how happy and grateful we are for the amazing service Frances offers. We got married with Tsilivi travel on the 21st of June 2004. We took the Cruise-liner package. Everything was perfect, from the ceremony in the beautiful gardens, horse and cart through Tsilivi, and an unforgettable reception on the boat. We are also overwhelmed by the quality of the flowers, food, delicious cake, and fantastic photographs. We cannot fault a thing. We took with us 32 guests who have all commented on what an amazing unforgettable day they had.
Frances is an incredible women - almost super human, she never stops! She had a wedding everyday through June yet we were made to feel ours was the only one - No doubt everybody else was made to feel the same way on their special day. With all this she is also a really lovely person.
Tsilivi is a beautiful resort and to anybody going can we also highly recommend Rendez-vous bar for the warmest hospitality and Valentina\'s Castle for again amazing hospitality, incredible food, and probably the worlds best mussels! We stayed in the Tsiolis studios (also booked through Tsilivi travel), which we can also highly recommend. We made some wonderful friends in Tsilivi and we will never forget how we were made to feel part of the family.
On a final note can we say to anybody reading this considering either taking a holiday through Tsilivi travel or planning their wedding... Do it! We guarantee you will love it.
Thanks for everything Tsilivi Travel. See you next year. Love Ellie, Wayne and Holly xxx
frances, dennis, jodie and paula were so friendly and helpful. siolis studios where we stayed were great, regularly cleaned and really comfortable. really handy position with being a stones through away from rendevous (bar) and valentina's castle (greek taverna. frances, who also arranged my sisters wedding, which took place while we were there was fantastic, she really went out of her way for us, if we had a question she had the answer. thanks again and will ring you with the dates of our next holiday to make sure you have room for us in the studios. lots of love fran & chris x
Good agency with reasonable prices for all trips, had a bit of a nightmare trip with the turtle spotting though. The coach was late (even by greek standards), the driver was grumpy, stressy and rude, got to laganas, waited 30 mins in bus with no explanation, then were escorted off to join a big boat with a coachload of people from another agency (we were promised a small one!), anyway some of the people we were with refused to get on and this poor greek guy was rushin around tryin to find us a replacement. It ended we had a much better trip than anyone else cos we ended up in a water taxi with just 8 of us, went right up to a lone turtle swimmin around and had an hour to spend on turtle island swimmin and lazin around, ended up well worth the 15 euros but i'd make sure you get what is promised cos if you go on a big boat its so crowded and noisy you can't really
see a lot and miss out on a great experience!
Sorry Frances & Ken, I forgot to highlight the EXCELLENT boxes.
Fantastic company, I had e-mailed Frances prior to our holiday (4th May 2003 till 11th May 2003). Requesting info about trips, she is extremely helpful and will answer all yor queries.
Tsilvi Travel have two offices Frances is at one end of Tsilvi and Ken is at the Planos end. I dealt with Ken, great bloke and very helpful. (Told you I'd give you a mention Ken).
I booked 3 trips (for 2 adults and 2 children) through Tsilvi Travel and reckon I saved €120 compared to our Reps prices for the same trips.
we needed a flight home due 2 illness and our own tour rep were pathetic in thier attempts 2 help us.tsilivi travel helped us home.thanks linda,we owe you.many thanks.
Nothing is too much trouble, everything can be arranged in one go, no hard sell no pressure, great.
After searching the internet sites we had a fair bit of info before hitting the streets, and after more deliberation, once in Tsilivi we decided upon Tsilivi Travel to organise ALL our trips. Ken, an ex-pat, is very helpful, and the trips were all we had hoped. The tour guides in Athens and Olympia are extremely well informed and very approachable. We had unseasonal, torrential downpours towards the end of our Jeep Zakfari, but this did not phase the guide, who just calmly took control and gave us an extra break until the rain stopped; equally in Olympia there was a back-up plan in case of rain. Well organised,worth booking through, just remember that you're in Greece when waiting for the buses!
Dont go anywhere elce! Great Service at both offices, They sorted out all our excurtions - And they were Brilliant (Athens, Olympus, Zakfari) It's worth contacting them beforehand for info.
came back from tsilivi 3 days ago & missing it like mad.booked all our trips & hired a jeep through tsilivi travel.very helpful & friendly,did us a good deal on all trips.we found them a lot cheaper and more helpful than booking with our tour operator.
Say no more
Much the same as most who have recently signed the Tsilivi related guestbooks, we have only just returned from Zante and were that impressed that we had to tell people (Frances suggested the guestbook). Tsilivi is fantastic for those with/without kids who want genuine hospitality, character and what I personally felt is a great resort layout (e.g. no busy road between beach and cafes/beach bars/hotels down by the beach). Food, bars, shops etc. all fulfilled our requirements and there is plenty of variety to avoid boredom. We enjoyed too many places to mention them all but want to mention one in particular - if you don't visit The Miami Beach Bar for their breakfasts or simply a good pint of Strongbow then you'll miss Nico and Cristo's fantastic hospitality and service. Last week we went with friends and took our families (3 children - 8yrs, 2yrs and 4mths) and we all thoroughly enjoyed. So much so that us big kids have just booked to go again in September. We are all looking forward to Frances' excellent organisation and further great times in Tsilivi.
I emailed them before my holiday not really sure if I was expecting a reply but sure enough frances got in contact and I now have three trips paid for before my holiday - saving me loads of hassel. I rang them, Gave them my card details after they called me back! and frances e-mailed me the tickets (as attachments on microsoft excel) the next day - very impressed!
