“Worth Every Euro.”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Excellent guided tour of the island. Our guide Maria, was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the island. The boat then drops anchor off of a lovely sandy beach where you get to spend an hour jumping off of he back of the boat and swimming in the beautiful clear, blue deep water. There is then a BBQ where your are served a lovely pork chop, marinated beautifully with a great Greek salad before the return trip to Agios Nikolaus.
A whole day for 34€...we will do this again if we go back to Crete!

“Very interesting”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We did this trip by ourselves, rather than through the tour operator and saved alot of money. Be prepared for rough, uneven surfaces and some steep climbs if you want to get up to the fortress - the views are worth it. Take plenty of water though as it was very hot when we went. Well worth the trip and a real 'bring back to earth' experience when you consider sick people living there in that heat!!
