One of the bad experience ever. Very bad organized. Not worth the money. Wasted time. Scam in one word. At least go on a boat tour and not by bus. Overrated, rude people, highly not reccommended.

Here's how this scam works. They sell you 16 euro tickets at the Marina for the Blue Grotto. You wait until the boat fills up with customers then you're on a bumpy boat ride for about 20 minutes until you arrive at the outside of...More

An interesting landmark, not sure it’s worth waiting more than an hour so plan accordingly but have your camera ready

Really a very nice attraction to see. The experience is nice believe me. The way you get from the big boat to the fluka and the drivers of the fluka are very funny. 😁 one thing is they have to stop asking about the tips😂.

Paid 16 euros for this trip 2 days ago having been assured several times that it lasted a maximum of one hour. A lie. We travelled in a small ferry to the mouth of the grotto (20 mins) and joined no less than a dozen...More

The blue grotto is beatiful and definately amazing to see. We didn't realize you have to go into it via row boat. You can get there from both the land and water. You pay for a ticket which is 14 euros per person. Once you...More
