As with all other activities, we arrived by car ourselves, there were more than enough parking spaces at the port. The boat trip itself was good and always watched something left and right for 1 hour, the stay on Spinalonga was chaotic with 2 tour groups from France, as they had their guide, from then on we did our own thing and took some great photos ourselves, otherwise you can look at a bit of history on the island but 8 euros entrance fee or 9 euros with tax is outrageous, just 1 hour time, the entrance fee does not match, especially since you should put the money into the restoration with so many entrance fees. Everything came down, for which then pay 8 or 9 euros, nature does her thing on the island and that's just the positive mention and what was nice. Otherwise, better save money and wait at the jetty until it goes to the other island to have a barbeque, that was ok, but could also be better. LG

6 hours were specified for the trip, after 5 hours we were back at the port of Nikolaos. Don't buy drinks on Spinalonga (€ 5 for a can of Fanta!) - buy them on the ship, it costs only € 2! Otherwise a great trip, the food was sensationally delicious. The seaside resort is an absolute dream. It's just a shame: they could have made the announcements on the boat in English. (Actually only Russian and Greek ‍♂️)

A great experience through and through! The whole team was very friendly and professional, especially the guide seemed to enjoy his work very much. The entire tour was very interesting and fun, the highlight was of course exploring the island. One hour is hardly enough to discover all the great places! Swimming with a barbecue was a perfect end to this beautiful day. Thanks to all!
