What people are saying about Kos

The tour was very nice. Kalymnos was the most beautiful island, with really great streets. We would have missed that if we had taken the 'Bimmel-Bahn'. Didn't get a place there, fortunately. It's a shame our stay there was so short. The sponge museum was interesting, the lecture made nice by the tour guide. Sure, you want to sell sponges. But was okay. Kalymnos has real Greek flair. If I had known that the alleys were so beautiful, I would have skipped the sponge museum to have more time. Platy was great for jumping overboard. But otherwise had nothing to offer. I can warmly recommend swimming shoes. The stones of the mooring point are pointed. There is a sandy beach, but the ship does not stop there. Pserimos was unspectacular. The advertised food in the tavern was sufficient, salad, fries, fish. Salad and bread first. I've had my fill. However, I wasn't entirely enthusiastic about it. Overall, the tour was recommended!

The trip to the volcanic island was very nice. The volcano was very impressive and everything was well organized. The guide was very friendly and happy to answer questions. The goat at the Vegos restaurant comes highly recommended. All in all it was a very successful day and I would highly recommend it. :)

The excursion was really well organized and explained by our guide. There is enough time for the volcano, since you can only admire and desire the volcano anyway :) The port city and the little bit on the boat were also very quiet and cute, since we felt like we had the island to ourselves.

Very nice trip! Tip: include the shuttle to Nysios at the same time, then you don't have to pay extra for it on site. Otherwise highly recommended, great island!

Absolutely worthwhile excursion. Informative guide. Very exciting.
