Pick up was on time, found finding the point a struggle with map that was sent but soon took advice on resort. The boat was clean, well managed and sailing fantastic, beautifully scenery all the way. Once there at Symi, the guide very good but we struggled with the ear pieces, both wearing glasses, also not only English speaking we had lots of silences while he spook to another language, so we skipped the tour and did our own thing, in fairness it’s just so beautiful to stroll around and take in the scenery. Found a nice taverna for lazy lunch. We had a bonus on boat back as stopped further around the island at a monastery which looked beautiful, there was time to look around but we were tired so stayed onboard and just enjoyed the scenery around us. We knew nothing of the monastery stop when we booked the tour! Once docked in Rhodes Town it was speedy disembark and back on the coach back to Pefkos. A long day as we were out 12 hours but well worth it for the beauty we experienced!
The trip to the island is on the big ferry. I had imagined something smaller under "Boot". Nevertheless, it was a great trip. The island is very beautiful and the time is also good to climb the stairs, have something to eat or drink. Mail with the pick-up dates should not be sent shortly after booking and then under a different Greek name, get your guide did not show up. Sank in spam. Express pick-up location more precisely: pick-up hotel xy in front of the entrance, ... not Hiotel xy on the main street, ... my hotel was not on the main street, I walked there for 5 minutes, accidentally the bus still caught me.
A great day trip to Symi Island. However, you should have a strong stomach for the boat trip. You can see great scenery while driving and the city of Symi is adorable. The Panormitis Monastery at the end of the tour is also very worth seeing. The tour guide gives a lot of information about the country and its people
The tour guide was very knowledgable and gave a great history of the island. Would recommending looking at staying overnight for one night so you can visit some of the beaches.
Characteristic island, very pretty. It would take longer to visit it.
