I can only recommend the organization or the online platform GetYourGide. Uncomplicated, bookable from home, everything worked out. Information was received by email in good time before the trip, and everything else met what was agreed. The experience itself was also super nice, even if the day was very long with 10-12 hours, but you prepare for it. The food on the ship was good, there were also cocktails, etc. We had read the comments in advance and were walking with sturdy shoes. However, many people on the ship came in pines and then had problems walking over the stony paths when docking in Balos. So I ask myself: "Can't people read?" Therefore, when hopping from the ship to Balos, there were long queues that could have been avoided because people simply couldn't walk. Sturdy shoes are advisable here! I can recommend this experience, VG Simone
We had a lot of fun on the mini tour. The guide took great photos of us in the 3D world. And the 9D movie was a great trip into the mionic world thanks to the moving seats. Since there were only two of us at that time, the projectionist asked us if we would like to see another 9D film, which we of course answered in the affirmative. We were then allowed to experience a roller coaster ride through the wild west and the gold mines of that time. Although only 30 minutes in total, the visit was definitely worth it.
It was a very nice trip. Claudia, the guide, was very nice and informative. The time allotted at the beach (3,5-4 hrs) was a perfect amount of time at the beach and the drive to the beach were beautiful. The only bad thing of the entire trip was the amount of people on the bus who repeatedly took their masks off no matter how many times they were asked to put them back on.
Unforgettable excursion to Elafonisi. The pick-up was on time, the tour guide and the driver were super warm, especially Spiridon went to great lengths and Christos shortened the trip with very interesting facts. You really noticed that you were here with people who love and live Crete. We will definitely book again with Balos Tours or Spiridon when we are back in Crete.
A great place worth visiting. However, it's hard to find a place to crash or even a free sunbed
