Unfortunately the weather was too windy to paddle, so Socrates spontaneously asked us to change the activity to a trip to an island, where we had the chance to snorkle. It was a great alternative and we had lots of fun. Socrates is really a kind, cheerful and courteous person, who also knows a lot about the history of the island. We had a really good time with him.

The whole experience was great! I booked the SUP boarding at home before we travelled, unaware of any bus timetables or locations. We had originally booked the afternoon slot at 1pm, due to not knowing about the transport. I got a message from Socrates asking if we would like to change to the morning due to the winds. I explained that we haven’t arrived in Crete yet and that we don’t know the buses etc. Socrates was very understating, he provided us with a timetable and told us to wait till we got there and we could decide the day before the excursion as to whether we wanted the morning. The night before he called to say that rather than getting up so early, he had cancelled his 7.50 and the 1pm and we could go at 10am instead, this was a huge relief as we had children with us who don’t like to move in the mornings. So, we got the bus and he met us at the bus stop, so we didn’t get lost. We were running a few minutes late, but he was so laid back, extremely lovely and very informative!

Originally we wanted to do the 1pm tour the next day. But Socrates asked us if we also spontaneously wanted to do the 6 p.m. Sunset Sunset Tour on the current day, since strong winds were announced for the next day. Luckily we were so spontaneous. The Sunset Tour was an incredibly beautiful experience and Socrates was a great guide. Very nice and personable, got us perfectly acquainted with the equipment and gave us a lot of information about the history of Lazaretta. Highly recommended, we would do the tour again and again. 5 stars are actually not enough as a rating.
