An all day trip. Kissamos is right at the west end of Crete but worth the journey. It takes about an hour to get to the first stop, the island of Imeri Gramvoussa. If you feel lazy just stay on the beach or have a...More

we enjoyed the cruise very much! One reviewer noted that the visit to Gramvousa only allows for visiting the fortress or enjoying the beach. We found this to be true as well. Balos was beautiful! I would recommend renting chairs here as the sand is...More

The great views that the Greek landscapes can give , well you will see plenty of that On the trip. We had some info about the Gramvoussa island but a guide On the Tour would have been Nice. Or maybe an audio Tour ??? bring...More

We had high expectations. The trip didn't quite meet up to those expectations. The boat is like a normal transport cruiseship, nothing special there. First stop is the Gramvousa island with the ruins on top of the mountain. It is a pretty tough climb, but...More

We had a family trip to the fortress of Gramvousa & the Balos Lagoon (aka the Maldives of Crete). The trip takes quite a while (around 2 hours one way) from Rethymon plus the boat ride takes long (an additional hour). The climb to the...More

We were on a Balos-Gramvousa cruise today. First, we visited Balos (2 hours by bus from Rethymno, then 1 hour by boat) which was amazing. Then we took the boat to Gramvousa. We arrived at 15.20h and it was too hot. So we didn't go...More

Took this cruise line to Gramavousa and Balos. It was reasonably priced and nice boat ride over to the islands. I just wish we had more time to spend on the beaches. Highly recommend!

I liked a lot this trip to Gramvousa and Balos lagoon. Beautiful, unique place. It was about 7 hours long. 1 stop at Gramvousa island for about 1,5 hours, then Balos for about 4 hours. It is better to take some snacks and drinks with...More

The cruise itself was ok, there was plenty of room for everybody, the food was pretty much ok, the announcements where made in different languages for everybody to understand. It's worth to take this for Balos, not for Gramvousa where there's nothing to see.
