Unique and interesting. We did the afternoon tour which also conveniently captures sunset with the ruins. I wish we had more time to explore a full day, but the time we had there with our guide Athena was fabulous. Only issue we had was check at the ferry port sometime prior to your trip as they had changed the time of departure and no one was notified.

It was amazing and the highlight of the trip was our Tour guide Athena. Very knowledgeable of the history of the island, her passion towards its history and significance in Greek mythology was infectious and translated in keeping us engaged from start to finish. The only downside to the trip was the fact that the museum was closed and we didn't know that it was closed except towards the end of the tour. The boat ride was a bit hectic as the boats weren't air-conditioned and the open air section of the boat was overly crowded so we couldn't find a place there.

amazing place, certainly an excellent guide, but due to the use of wireless audio tour guide systems because of covid-19, and considering really strong winds, the group size should have been smaller, since if one didnt stay in very close vicinity and in direct obstruction-free line to the guide, the signal got lost, which unfortunately happened very often due to the above reasons (too big group size, hence impossible to stay close to the guide and in direct line, often walls in-between)
