What people are saying about Agios Nikolaos

A great day; October 10th, warm weather, no wind, very few people; the island was a real paradise! Wow Great snorkeling on the East side; the Golden beach is spectacular; the cedars are also very nice. It was such a great day; I wish we stayed longer. The company was very efficient; new and good quality transport, ran on time, no waiting; friendly guides, spoke many languages; there was a bit of time in Ierapetra - it was fun to walk around the seaside and grab an orange juice. The boat was also fine, though the service in cafeteria is very slow; consider grabbing your coffee / juice in town and drinking onboard. We left at 8:35 from Elounda, took 10:30 am ferry to Chrissi; the ferry back ran at 15:40 and i was back in my hotel just before 6 pm.

Long day but worth it. Maria our guide was very informative in 3 languages. Very pleasant and friendly. Santander such a beautiful island but a little expensive in comparison to Crete. The seajet crossing was really comfortable

Great trip! The island is gorgeous with crystal clear water! Not too crowded, transportation was straightforward.

Great day all activities were very well planned guide was very informative on spinalonga

Quality excursion, value for money and impeccable organization.
