As you enter the natural harbor of Symi, you will be charmed by this beautiful island. One of the most picturesque islands of the Dodecanese, Symi promises its visitors peace and tranquility. The main city of Gialos with its neo-classical houses climbing amphitheatrically up the hill, shows the grandeur of the island. Being world famous for its natural sponges has brought Symi a great wealth which is reflected in its local architecture and culture. A stop at the beautiful bay of Panormitis is a must, the 17th century’s monastery of Saint Michael welcomes its pilgrims as well as its tourists to admire the treasures dedicated to the saint for his miracles. A visit to Symi should not be missed!

Visiting the monastery at Panoramitis and pulling into the harbour of Symi Town are both breathtaking. The monastery is beautiful and ladies have to cover their shoulders and are provided with a shawl. The view as you come into the harbour is lovely but when you pull into Symi Town the views are stunning with lots of pastel coloured Venetian... More

We did the full day tour with Tourtlee to Symi Island. The transfer was prompt and seamless from hotel to ship. The boat itself was the Sea Dream and was a massive big ferry - my guess probably 250-300 people. The ship itself was quite roomy inside and out but is quite out of date and the indoor salon very...

We travelled with Sea Dreams to Symi and then on to the Bay of Panormitis and the 17th century monastery of Saint Michael. At 18 Euros each we felt we had an excellent value for money trip. The island of Symi is small but beautiful and a leisurely walk around the shops and a swim is what most people do... More

A lovely full-day excursion to a beautiful small island. It took 2 hours each way to get there, but it was lovely, very picturesque. We were lucky to visit on VE day, and saw their celebrations, which involved a parade with school children, a brass band and soldiers. On the return journey we stop on the other side of the... More

I loved this excursion, it is a very relaxing and enjoyable day and you get enough time to walk around and have a nice lunch. Turtlee is amazing in terms of customer service, they really know how to spoil you. They are very flexible and do anything to make customers happy. Highly recommended!

First things first. If you are sensitive to being whole day in a crowd on a hot sun, this trip is not for you. But if you can prepare yourself for that and be open-minded – this is outstanding picturesque day out. I booked this trip on Tourtlee website a week in advance. We departed from commercial sea port by... More
