Great day with lots of usefule information

After collecting all the people from their hotel we headed from Heraklion to Agios Nikolaos where we had possibility to look around, buying gifts and coffe.On the way our guide told the story of Spinalonga in 3 different languages (!).After 1 hour break we headed to Spinalonga where the next boat was reserved for our tour only and it wasn't crowded. The 1 hour on Spinalonga is short if you want to explore everything properly,but if you just walk around the island, it's enough. After the visit of Spinalonga we had 1hour to eat at the port of Plaka and enjoying the view of Spinalonga.Then we headed to Elounda where swimming was optional (1hour free time). It's a very well organised day,with lots of useful historical information, quick access to Spinalonga. We can recommend it to everyone.

A long but pleasant day in Eastern Crete.

It was good despite the many stops to get all tourers on the bus, sufficient time to walk in Agios Nikolaos and have some drinks, nice drive to Plaka and good ride on the boat to Spinalonga. Walking around Spinalonga was nice, a little shocked by the prices of soft drinks 4 euros each ( coke ) at the coffee shop on the island, more expensive than anywhere else in Crete.. The restaurant Spinalonga was average in quality and rather expensive compared with other restaurants we visited in Crete. The fare for this tour, 20 euros was more than reasonable, and recommend it to all visiting Crete.

Good day out in the beautiful east coast of Crete.

Comfortable bus ride to East coast of Crete, followed by a boat ride by a local charter, lunch on board with a stop on Spinalonga, finishing with a short stop in Agios Nikolaos. Wish we would have visited the island before swimming in the bay. Avoid buying any food/drink at Spinalonga: huge rip off (5 euro for 330 ml of water???). Otherwise, decent way to spend the day.

It was more interesting than we expected.

We had a great guide who was really passionate about the history of Spinalonga. We also liked the swim during the trip to the island. What we did not like is that we had to wait rather long to get a ticket for the actual visit of Spinalonga, once we arrived at the island. That took quite some time. Time we would rather have spent on the island itself.

Great day out. Lovely boat, great tour guide.

We did this trip on the way back to the airport. Perfect way to end the holiday. Lovely stop for a swim on the way. We had the perfect amount of time on the Island. Very informative guide. Would highly recommend. We hadn't taken in that it doesn't go from the Marina - the harbour is in a completely different place so there was a bit of a panic.
