day trips from hersonissos

Hi we are going to Hersonissos next week and have read many bad reviews about the hotel we have booked so would like any recommendations for good days out and excursions, thanks.

Hi,

Hersonissos is well located for days out or excursions,you can get on the bus on the main road running through hersonissos at several stops,which gives you the wide choice to venture out to numerous places such as stalis,agios nikolaos and heraklion to name but a few,maybe your best bet,would be to have a wee read up in a decent crete guide and see what takes your eye,using the bus service is a great way of getting out and about fairly cheaply if your not hiring your own transport.

As for excursions,i would say definately have a look at the spinnalonga trip[the old leper colony island],a lovely day out on a boat from agios nikolaos.sissi is another nice day out on a boat,which can be booked down at the harbour.also day trips to santorini are very popular,although fairly pricey.another to look into if your feeling adventurous is the jeep safari's,a great day out and a really alternative way to see crete off the beaten track

All in all,there's plenty to see and do within easy reach of hersonissos,so have a look in the local excursion shop when you get settled and see what takes your liking.

regards,Garry.

aggieann, what a refreshing change! Alot of people reading bad reviews would start talking about changing their accommodation, or even looking for compensation, but you are clearly a real traveller who makes the best of things. You deserve to have a great holiday and I wish you well. As scaffolder says, there are many great trips to be had from Hersonnisos, and you should have a great time.

Buses are frequent and quite luxurious, timetables follow:

These are still showing the winter timetables, hopefully they will be updated soon!

I am a big fan of Jeep Safari's. If you want a day out that is a bit different then go for this. You really do get off the beaten track and although it doesn't come cheap it will include a good lunch and I guarantee that you will have plenty of laughs with your driver and fellow passengers. There are normally eight people per jeep and the one we went on went in a convoy of four. You will find this day out offered by most of the tour operators in Hersonissos.

Totally agree sonny,we went on one when we stayed in stalis a few years back,and you drove the jeep yourselves if you wanted to.which we did,we shared the driving with another couple from france on their honeymoon,and had a great time.cannot recall it being that expensive either.

Would recommend it to anyone,but DO NOT wear your best clothes,it gets rather dusty.
