You will be picked up by our air conditioned coach and then head towards Ag. Nikolaos Port, in time to catch the ferry. It takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to reach Pesada in the south of the Island.

First stop is at St. Gerasimos Monastry where you will have time to visit the stunning new church to the front with all its gold and icons and then have a chance to look at the old monastery to the rear. You then head off to the Drogarati Caves, these are stunning but be prepared there are a lot of steps to climb.

After, you will visit the Melissani Underground Lake, a mountain with a whole in the top. Let the sunshine ripple on the waters below while you enjoy a row around the lake with your guide.

After a busy morning, head off to Ag. Efimia for a lunch/refreshment stop. This idyllic fishing village is an ideal stop for some relaxation. Feeling refreshed, head off to Myrtos Beach for photos and then to end the tour in your final stop: Argostoli -the capital- before heading back to catch the ferry and returning to Zakynthos.
