Gramvousa and Balos 5h beach included Boat and Lunch

star-4.5

Starting early, heading west and after a short breakfast stop near Rethymnon, driving past Chania, we reach the port of Kissamos. Here we take our boat for approximately a one hour pleasant sail along the coastline. Arriving in the port of the ex­-pirate island of Gramvousa we hear how, during the Turkish occupation, the residents of the island started looting passing boats thus giving the island its pirate reputation. It is a protected biotope and is host to more than 400 plant species and over 100 birds species. Don’t miss out on a visit to the Venetian castle on top of a steep rock as this is one of the most impressive castles in Greece. There is plenty of time for swimming or lunch on board. Our boat then departs for the Blue Lagoon of Balos, a shallow and warm water lagoon which brings to mind similar lagoons in the Caribbean. Here the crystal­ clear, azure coloured sea water in combination with the white sand makes this place unique.

Half Day Private Tour to Knossos Palace (Skip the line) & Panoramic City Tour
"First: a word about Greece. The landscapes are stunningly beautiful: coastlines, mountains, blue water. You will walk among 2,500-year-old archaeological sites. The food is every bit as good as you imagine it will be. But the best part of Greece is its people. I had not one bad interaction with a local Greek; they were consistently gracious, friendly, helpful. This country deserves to be on your bucket list. Greece has something like 38 million visitors (in a country with 11 million residents) in 2019. That number is less than half right now as they recover from the pandemic. Now is the time to go to Greece! Bring your swimsuit, appetite, and camera. It’s the trip of a lifetime. This was a private tour. The tour guide and driver were excellent. They took us to Knossos first. Tour guide explained the historical significance of this palace. We had skip the line tickets. Still, the archeological site was hot, there were long lines, it wasn't particularly interesting. The tour guide brought us back to Iraklion, ensured we had our bearings and gave us some time to shop and dine. They returned us to the ship on time. I want to reiterate that both the tour guide and driver were excellent, Knossos just wasn't worth the heat and long lines. I'm sure there are interesting things to do in Crete, but Knossos isn't one of them. If you're interested in history, get your fill in Athens and Olympia."..."

"Fantastic trip out! Hotel pick up. Masks worn on the bus which wasn’t too busy at all considering it’s August! When we got to the gorge it was a little busy mainly with Greek tourists not practicing social distancing. The trek is so long that eventually your displaced with other walkers and find yourself walking peacefully with no one around. Plenty of rest places and toilets on the way. Most people wearing trainers. It’s a well trodden trail and pathways wide enough to pass slower walkers where needed. The most arduous part I found was leaving the park and walking to the little tourist town by the beach. You can take a bus for €2 if you wish. Highly recommend this trip for the scenery. Warning your leg muscles will ache the next day!"..."
