Maryland Reptile House - (Places to Visit in Zante)

Tracey B  (27 January 2012)        10/10

We stumbled across the Reptile House during our holiday in Tsilivi in 2010. I am not a great lover of anything that can move faster than me so was a little apprehensive too say the least. My sons aged 13 and 10 were very enthusiastic and so was my husband so we gave it a whirl and I am so glad we did. The young man who showed us around was so knowledgeable and said as I walked though the door that he would have me holding a snake before I left - I did not give much for his changes! BUT half way around I was holding a baby crocodile and snakes of varying lengths with no fear! If I had a phobia before I entered I certainly did not have one when I left. The experience was fantastic and we will visit again when we return to Tsilivi for our 4th visit in September 2012. A very worthwhile visit and we all loved every minute. I really hope this business survives the unfortunate Greek depression .... see you all again soon x

Zakynthos Airport - (Places to Visit in Zante)

I have nothing but GOOD comments about Zakynthos Airport. I have had the good fortune to pass through Arrivals and Departures on many occasions and every time has been absolutely fine. Always met with a lovely Greek smile at Passport Control, something which is not always expressed in English Airports who seem to think it is part of their job to remain straight-faced and bugger customer relations. You do have to wait, but don't you have to wait and queue at Manchester/Gatwick/East Midlands etc? and yes, you do have to check in then take your luggage to be weighed - but I have just done the same thing in Corfu. One thing I must mention is the excess baggage charges - my experience is probably one not had by many but last year on the return journey my family's luggage was WELL over and the young lady at check in just smiled and asked if I had any hand luggage - unfortunately, no, I hadn't only my handbag! So she actually gave me four hand luggage tags which actually entitled me to an extra 40Kg so more than covered the excess weight in the cases! Will be returning in June 2013 and can't wait for the whole experience.
