We booked this excursion with Peter on the main street in Argassi (hi peter!!). Paid 79euros each for this which we thought was excellent value for money!
We were picked up from the main street at 7am and taken to Zante town for the ferry. At the ferry port we met our tour guide KOSTAS who was just great!! He was an excellent guide who was full of information on the local area and the main land but also knew how to let his hair down (check out the photo of him dancing at the greek night!!).
We had 2 stops on the way to Athens itself - including the lunch stop at the Corinth Canal. Once in Athens we were dropped off at our hotels and were given about hour to get freshened up before Kostas whisked us off on the trip around Plaka.
We decided to go to the Greek night which cost about 26euros each but this included a 4 course meal and as much wine as you could drink - great value and the dancers were brilliant.
Next day we were picked up at 7am and taken to see the changing of the guards and after that taken to the Acropolis.
We all felt that this was a great excursion and although it was a long day it was well worth doing!
This was our first excursion that we went on when we arrived in Zante and it was a great way to see the island.
However, don't expect much in the way of comfort on the boat - we were on the Alexandros Cruiser. It was totally crammed and there were not enough seats to accomodate everyone. Luckily we were able to get a couple of seats on the right side of the boat which was great for seeing the coastline!
Smugglers Cove was worth seeing BUT we felt that it would be better visiting it on a smaller boat to beat the crowds as the beach was absolutely packed! We would recommend travelling to St Nicholas port and catching a boat to see the blue caves and shipwreck from there.

This was definately the best restaurant in the resort!! Couldn't fault the food or the service and George the owner always made us feel welcome.
The pizza from the stone baked oven was just fabulous and my favourite had to be the penne mafiaso! Excellent value for money too!!!
