What people are saying about Rethymno
Spinalonga is worth seeing Excursion booked with Markidis Travel. Fully air conditioned coach with pick up and drop off at our hotel. Anastasia is an excellent multi lingual tour guide who pointed out all the sites on route and explained the history of the island plus informing everyone of the days itinerary. Our driver Costa manoeuvred some really unbelievable narrow roads and turns.On route money was collected for the ferry crossing by Anastasia so that she could purchase all the tickets instead of needing to queue. We travelled to Agios Nikolaos with time to explore then boarded our ferry for a lovely lunch. After sailing the ferry stopped at Kolokitha for a swim in the open sea, then onto Spinalonga. Here you need to purchase your entrance ticket and join a guided tour if you wish or explore yourself. We joined a tour where our guide explained in detail the history of Spinalonga then explored on our own. Excellent!
Our favourite day when in crete all because of the ease of this tour, the numerous locations included and the fantastic tour guide. Very easy pick up location with the bus as sent information by email the day before. The tour itself covers a gorge and waterfall and 3 beaches. It also included a boat trip - you have to pay an extra €10 on the bus for this. But it is well worth it. You have enough time to explore each beach and villiage and the views and scenery are breath taking! Away from 0830hr and back in rethymnos by 1800hr. Our tour guide was very friendly and gave us lots of great facts and historical/cultural insights to the surrounding area. Our most enjoyable day of the trip :)
I loved the hike! Having a guide to organize the stops made it a little easier, and it was also an opportunity to meet some new people. Orestis, our guide, was great and very clear with the group. Spent a couple of hours at Agia Roumeli beach before having to get the ferry from there back to the bus. Highly recommend for any visits to Crete!
Really great trip to a beautiful beach. I would recommend crossing the shallows and exploring further into the island as well. There's some lovely little bays beyond the first stretch is beach.
We had a great day at Elafonisi beach. The trip was very well organised. All details were shared in advance.
