Great trip well organised with ample time ashore on Spinalonga. The cost of the entire trip led us not to expect too much from the barbecue but it was excellent. We now regard the trip as really great value for money. Our only criticism may be that there not many announcements on the boat in English. A bit of guessing was required.

Super fun day and great organisation. 1.5 hours to explore Spinalonga and afterwards a refreshing dip in the sea while they prepare the bbq. The beach was very busy, but we just sat on one of the rocks, which was fine. The bbq was also okay, just some clumsy food on a platter on your lap. The only downside I thought might be that you still had to buy tickets at Spinalonga. It would be nicer if these were already included in the price, so that you don't have to queue when you arrive on the island. Conclusion: the trip is really worth the money!

Is really worth the money. Easy exchange of the GetYourGuide voucher at the small counter directly on the quay. Ship not overcrowded, punctual, nice on-board staff, all announcements in Greek, Dutch, Italian, English and something else, delicious food (chops, salad with sheep's cheese, bread, apple and drink)! 1.5 hours on Spinalonga (plenty enough), then over an hour for swimming/snorkeling in front of Kolokytha. However, it is advisable to be there 45 minutes earlier, because the buses arrive about 30 minutes before departure. And then the good places are gone.
