Having a guided tour of this area really helps bring it to life. Without a guide, it's really overwhelming. I would have preferred to have had a little more time on the island to see more and to climb the mountain, but maybe there are more returning boats in high season. (We went in October.)

Amazing experience!! Our guide was a very nice lady who took care of all of us during the tour under the sun and with a very high temperature. She was very interactive when giving her explanations. And the way she explained it all was so interesting, even with such hot day you just wanted her to keep talking and follow her through the complex. I would go back and do it again! And I strongly recommend everyone thinking of taking the tour to do so! Also, they had a very nice old man selling water in the boat, so you could buy in case you didn’t bring, and same when going back, but if you ran out of water! The price was just 0,5€!!! Never seen before!! It’s the supermarket price!! Loved the fact they didn’t even try to take advantage of being the only ones selling water!! Amazing experience every detail was amazing!!

The tour was great. However, I did think the tour guide was alittle hard to understand. Felt she could explain more. The guide would often bring up a topic without introducing what it was, as if assuming we knew already. So it could be hard to follow. However, the boat trip, the location, the ruins all excellent.
