Wow awesome trip, even though we had a rental car glad we took the bus as the road is somewhat narrow. Our bus driver was excellent. Take a walk through the channel to the island. Crystal clear water and great beach, this must be one of the best places on earth. Amazing views on the stop on the way back. Simply a great tour.

Great tour only problem we still had to pay 16 € per person for boat ticket.

Gramvousa has amazing views and Balos is just an unbelievable place to go for a swim.

Chrysi is beautiful and Altino Travel were fantastic. I would recommend booking this locally as it is only 14 Euros for the whole trip if you pay direct on the day! We were the last on the coach so it only took around 1.5hrs from Sissi to Ierapetra, then an hour long boat ride (the boat gets v busy) before arriving on the island. We had about 3-4 hours on the island. The guides kept announcing over the boat's tannoy that the pick-up time would be 4pm, then 4.30pm, then 5pm, then eventually 3.45pm - slightly unorganised. Tips for Chrysi: it can get very windy, two loungers and a parasol will cost you 10 Euros and also there are only a couple of non-flushing portaloos on the island.
