It was a wonderful day. Elafonisi is an absolute dream and definitely worth the drive. The tour guide was very nice and showed and told us a lot of interesting things along the way. The stops in the villages were also great. However, I think what you should know is that the trip there is not for the faint of heart. The streets are very narrow in places and you can see deep slopes. But the bus driver drove really well and you felt safe. Furthermore, the tour is not for people who are not good on foot. The last part of the path you have to walk and it is partly rocky and goes uphill (the way back). So nothing for people with knee problems, people with crutches, etc. Kind regards from Jutta

The trip was excellent, Ms.Ananastia (our lovely guide) and Mr.Costas our expert bus driver were amazing. The whole journey ride via mountain were a new experience up to the beach. The way to beach is a small walk, so good to wear shoes and carry chapels. suggest to carry some food and drinks as not much option at beach. Toilet is €0.50 at car park. The overall experience at beach was good, very clear and shallow water...must trybfor swimming and laying near pink sand. 💗 highly recommend for beach lovers with a different experience.

It was a really nice trip. Our tour guide Lazaros made our day sweeter and unforgettable with his humor and warm manner. Elafonisi is definitely worth a visit and was the highlight of our vacation, even if the beaches are unfortunately no longer pink. If you have the opportunity, I can recommend the day trip to you. Absolutely reasonable in price.

Well organized tour. We learned a lot of interesting things about the island. The guide and driver were great and Elafonissi is definitely worth a trip.

Everything was fine! We would have preferred to stay in Elafonisi for an hour or two longer. :-) Everything perfect!
