TERRIBLE. DO NOT book this tour through this group. I ordered this tour 4 months in advance and the day before "they messed up and put me on the wrong day". I changed my hotel so I needed to let them know where to pick me up and they didnt answer one call/email from myself or the Viator customer service. They were a no show on the day i was supposed to go and the new day they said they put me on. It is a VERY painful process to get my money back. As a backup plan, we planned this tour through our hotel just incase they didnt show up (which they never did) and the tour through the hotel was AMAZING. I suggest everyone still go to this island b.c it is SUPER pretty just not this tour.

Viator cancelled my reservation the night before the trip. We plan this trip months in advance and given the fact it was cancel so sudden it was too late to book anything else in the town. All the public transportation which is only bus per day already left next day, the town tours all booked

Company booked us on the wrong day (was different then what we had on our voucher). We tried to reach them several times but they were slow to respond. They responded very late and left us stuck with no tour or ability to book something else as it was so late at night (11 pm). Would not recommend at all.

A gorgeous beach with lovely views of the mountains, the water is crystal clear. There are plenty of sunbeds and shades which you can hire for 8euros, plus places to eat and drink, toilet and wash facilities on hand too, remember to pack your sun cream this place is pretty exposed. The monastery is well worth a visit, it has quite a history, just wished that it hadn't been so rushed.

Some people paid the tour at the moment and to my surprise, they paid less tan the half of what I have paid with an advance of at least fifteen days. Additionally, it is organised to make you stop and spend your money in restaurant and places not very good indeed. It is a lot better and easier making it by local buses.

This was a lovely trip. Well worth it. The bus ride to elafonissi Island was very scenic with a changing torrane which kept you constantly looking out the window. Elafonissi Island was so beautiful. I dont think many on the bus walked out to the island as it was not very clear that you were going in the right direction. Keep walking toward the large cross on the hill top and the cave is just below that. I walked to the top if the island hill and read the monument that was there and had a look through the old church. the water was spectacular in both colour and temperature. I would highly recommend this trip is you enjoy history, beautiful scenery and gorgeous water.

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.
