What people are saying about Crete

Be sure to read your emails after booking: Our departure was brought forward because of the earlier sunset. So it started punctually at 7 p.m. in Rethymnon. If you sit on the left side of the ship, you can see the sunset very nicely. The crew was incredibly nice and the children were allowed to steer the ship at the end. A very successful trip that we can definitely recommend! This event is definitely worth € 17.

I can't fault this trio at all. The only thing I would say is to get there early on the day and that way your first on the boat and will get a much better seat. The sunset is stunning and the cruise also takes you into the old harbour which is beautiful at night with all the cafes and restaurants lit up. Highly recommend this trip

Everything very well organized, dear crew. We were lucky, the ship was quite empty. The trip was pleasant even for those who have reservations about the rocking of the ship. In the end, the children were allowed to "drive" again. To recommend!

Were only two. Went through Chania, great sunset and perfect view of the harbor in the dark of the beautiful lights.

Very nice tour. It took a bit of retreat, but still everything was fine for the money.
