What people are saying about Spinalonga

guys trust me this trip is soooo amazing! I booked it but wasn't sure if it would be worth it but when we got to the spinalonga island I was astonished, really, the picture they posted are nothing compared to reality. All the little houses made of rocks and wood covered in plants trees and flowers let alone the view of the sea from the top are something you don't want to miss when going to Crete; PLUS THE ENTRANCE IS FREE FOR STUDENTS. When we got to the second stop at the beach my eyes didn't believe what they saw, not even pools have a water that clear. The lunch was great, good stake, good wine, good cheese and salad. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I just wish we had more time at the beach after lunch

Very good value for money ! It would be good to specify that for the "retired" reduction of the visit of the island it is from 65 years. I'm retired 59 and paid full price. 30 minutes more presence would be nice on the island. The barbecue was good, however the hygiene of the boat's staff left something to be desired. Excellent day to do absolutely! This island has an extraordinary history.

The boat trip was well arranged, you could buy drinks or something similar on the boat. There was a Dutch speaking guide on Spinalonga, he talked so enthusiastically that only half an hour was left to further explore the island. The bbq was scant a pork chop, bits of bread and some salad and a pear, and a cup of drink. All in all a nice experience.

Nice boat trip with a decent price-performance ratio. On the island, you will join the desired language group and will also be advised of alternative exploration and photo opportunities. Everything was very relaxed and there was enough time at the individual locations. Is recommended!

A great day of sightseeing. The boat trip alone is an experience
