What people are saying about Agios Nikolaos
The boat trip can be difficult for many people due to choppy waves. If you get sick from boat trips then you won't enjoy this trip. However, Santorini is well worth viewing. Unfortunately it is loved to death by the foreign traveller and you will find the crush of the crowd unpleasant. We did enjoy our experience, however, particularly an excellent meal at a Santorini restaurant overlooking the caldera. It is a very full and tiring day but worthwhile if you have stamina and are not affected by boat motion.
This is a fabulous island to visit with stunning scenery. I was really impressed with the organisation of this trip - our guide was excellent in her presentation of information about life on Santorini, the historical perspective, a little of how the island was formed, and local plants etc. I would recommend people to visit in spring time as there were more than enough tourists here already! It was windy and we had some rough weather on the ferry trip back.
Comfortable bus ride to East coast of Crete, followed by a boat ride by a local charter, lunch on board with a stop on Spinalonga, finishing with a short stop in Agios Nikolaos. Wish we would have visited the island before swimming in the bay. Avoid buying any food/drink at Spinalonga: huge rip off (5 euro for 330 ml of water???). Otherwise, decent way to spend the day.
We had a great guide who was really passionate about the history of Spinalonga. We also liked the swim during the trip to the island. What we did not like is that we had to wait rather long to get a ticket for the actual visit of Spinalonga, once we arrived at the island. That took quite some time. Time we would rather have spent on the island itself.
We did this trip on the way back to the airport. Perfect way to end the holiday. Lovely stop for a swim on the way. We had the perfect amount of time on the Island. Very informative guide. Would highly recommend. We hadn't taken in that it doesn't go from the Marina - the harbour is in a completely different place so there was a bit of a panic.
