It was very nice trip I can definitely can recommend if you don’t want to rent a car but would like to discover other places of West Crete.(which has the nicest beaches and coast lines as per feedbacks). The organizers picked us up at the closest point to our hotel , which made our ride more comfortable. From Kissamos we had a nice ferry ride to Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa island( be aware of waves during the ferry ride ). We had great time at the lagoon and the island , we also had luck with nice sunny and less windy weather. The scheduled timing was kept well .

Marvellous place! A piece of Heaven on Earth and a real phenomenon! The bus and the boat did not really follow covid-19 measures as the capacity of people was more than should be. 1.5 m distance could not really be kept between passengers. The tour was windy, probably due to mid Sept dates but the places were totally worth it. Time at Balos is about 2.5 hours and at Gramvousa - around 1.5 hours. Water was a bit cool at that time of the year. There were umbrellas at Balos but none were free.

Great trip. I enjoyed everything, the Laguna at Balos bay with the gorgeous turquoise colours, the walk to the fortress on Gramvousa island and the boat trip. I strongly recommend this trip.

Great place to go, probably the best beach in Crete and a mountain in the background just to add to the views. But the company was great, very efficient and worth going with.

I loved the whole adventure! It was amazing! The weather was very beautiful! However, it was just too crowded on the boat
