Full description
Meet your local guide and enjoy comfortable transportation. Make your first stop at Agios Nikolaos, on the Gulf of Mirabello. The place is famous for its picturesque lake, explored by the ocean researcher Jaques Cousteau. Walk along the city on your own, stroll through the shops or relax. After that, discover Elounda and its magnificent views of Crete. At Spinalonga Island you can choose to join an English guided tour or explore the island by yourself. If you do not wish to visit the archaeological site at all, you can join a one-hour boat trip to a secret location and dive into the crystal clear water. After a short drive, reach Plaka a small fishing village. Plaka was the ferry port of the leper colony, whose history was documented in a book and a Greek television series. Visit the filming sites, enjoy lunch or have a refreshing swim before heading back to your accommodation.

The landscape and the different cities are breathtaking, but the time to visit them is really scarce. One hour stop in villages 10 minutes away. The island of Spinalonga is breathtaking both as an archaeological tour and as a dive to be carried out on the beaches located on the side of the island. The escort is nice but very basic in information. The purchase of the tour indicates that the duration of the same is 15 hours, but in total between the round trip and the visit are 10. I do not recommend it.
