Great day at amazing beach, crystal clear waters, really glad I went:)

Great day out at this at this beautiful, amazing beach, tour great value & well organised. Crystal clear water, sun beds, shade as well as sun. I booked online the day I arrived - didn't know the Crete so left note asking which was best location for pick up. They advised they could pick me up at hotel which was great. Showed PDF emailed ticket was easy. Guide was great, gave some fun facts & stories on the drive and good info on beach. Amazing bus driver, very impressive driving - (glad I chose tour option rather than hiring a car) - very scary narrow and very winding roads to beach - great views driving across the island through mountains. Good way to see island & other beaches as well, as we picked up people along the way. Stopped at small village for bathroom & coffee snack on way there - on way back stopped again for bathroom late lunch - no obligation to do lunch or coffee on either stop. People who did lunch really enjoyed their food. Very relaxing day out, highly recommend.

Perfect day-trip spoiled by our guide and driver

Perfect day-trip for a small group of persons. It is highly recommended. Christos, our guide, explained very interesting details about Crete and our excursion, and Stavros, our driver, drove us safely to Elafonissi and had good music in the car. Both were really helpful and kind with us. The excursion was really worth, there were not so many tourists, the sun was there, the water was transparent and hot to swim in it, and the sand was really pink. The restaurant and the cave on the way back were also worth the trip. I highly recommend this tour and thank our two nice guide and driver!

Elafonisi is gorgeous!! A must-do in Crete!

Elafonisi is a gorgeous beach! Transparent and delicious water, white and pink sand, confortable infrastructure. It is one of the most beaches I've ever been! Our driver and guide were nice. I am glad I chose to go with the bus tour, because the road is tricky! My only remarks is that the stops could be in a more interesting location (such as some cute villages we passed by), and that we should have more time at the beach. We arrived at 11.00 and left at 15.00. We could have easily stayed until 17.00 and still come back with day light.

Outstanding beach and exciting ride to get there!

This tour does not disappoint. The drive to Elafonissi is so beautiful but if you’re afraid of heights, could be quite unnerving. Our driver was very skilled. The guide was knowledgeable and told us about more than just the history of the area, she talked about Cretan customs (such as how many people are invited to weddings and the story behind all the small shrines/memorials along the road). And the beach! Wow. So beautiful. 4 hours was a good amount of time to spend there...although I would have liked more.

Great guide and travel but disappointing beach

My friends and I booked this excursion because we heard how cool the pink sand at the beach was. The pink sand was basically non existent allegedly from people always taking it home upon their visit. The guide and bus driver were great. The pick up location was near to our stay. It was a short trip for the beach in my opinion and they made two stops one going and coming. They were convenient but the going stop was not as necessary. Overall it was enjoyable as an excursion but an underwhelming location.
