    Successful day trip

    From departure everything went smoothly and satisfactorily. However, the pickup had gross gaps. At first it was said, cannot be carried out from our vacation spot. When asked, it was granted to be at the first possible pick-up location. Already at home I wrote to the organizer on site that I would like to come to the port in order to shorten travel times on my part and to remain flexible. The day before the event, people asked if I would like to participate. No answer to my question, even asking about my question even though it was read in context. I then repeated it. On the day of the event, I was given this opportunity. However, at one time I was traveling lengthways. Therefore only 3 stars in the organization.

    Very nice tour

    We were picked up directly in Malia in front of the hotel. The tour guide explained everything in German, English and French. The price included the bus trip, the boat trip and a lunch with the main course, a small salad and a water. The journey took about 1 1/2 hours. Then we went on the ship. After a 1 hour drive the first bathing destination in a bay was reached. There you could jump from the ship into the water and swim on land. It was really great water. There was children's entertainment on board and ashore. B. face painting, painting. After about 1/2 hour we went to a larger bay. There you could be taken to the beach with a small shuttle boat. It was a wonderful beach. Crystal clear water, small rocks. There was a 2 hour stay for swimming and sunbathing. Then it went back. You could borrow umbrellas on board for 4 euros. Ice cream other drinks and snacks at moderate prices.

    A beautiful day. Unfortunately only cloudy.

    Good organization and friendly service. Unfortunately, the boat was too full for me and the queue too long when eating. Unfortunately my daughter was also seasick. So it was a good decision for us to shorten the return trip due to the high swell. The crystal clear, turquoise blue sea was wonderful.
