Dijeron que nos recogían por el Hotel y no fue así, después de llamarles varias veces y no coger el teléfono. Después de reconocer el error, tampoco a la vuelta nos recogieron, así que 15 euros de taxi a mayores y las prisas por llegar en 10 minutos, porque al no coger el teléfono hasta 10 minutos antes de salr el barco no pudimos enterarnos de que no nos recogían. Luego te hacen perder el tiempo al lleva a gente a otras islas, que tampoco te lo dicen, y en la información que te envían no dicen nada, será para así equivocarse menos. En el barco no se habla inglés, si no más bien itali-ingles, vamos que no te enteras a no ser que seas italiano y quieran hablarte, que normalmente no lo hacen. Y las fotos a 5 euros o 10 euros 3 fotos, pero en esto también intentan engañarte y cobrarte más, si no has oído el precio....pues te jodes.
Everything was great. The driver was a little late picking up the people who were waiting and pickup was not exactly where it was supposed to be In front of the Phoenician Hotel...fortunately somebody saw a bus at the end of the street and went to find out if it was the right one...It was. getting on the boat was kind of chaotic. Then the trip ended up being around the whole island and ended up at Comino. The atmosphere was party like and everybody from the crew to the clientele was great. The drinks were plentiful, the food was filling and the time spent at the Blue Lagoon was also more than enough for exploring and snorkeling. I highly recommend it, but encourage anyone taking this tour to be patient, kick back and enjoy the chaos. Met some fine people on the boat too.
Don't do it! Seriously, it's horrible! Read all the reviews and you will see, Viator seems to list the better reviews first which I read and the one stars at the end which I didn't get to. It's a mass tourist boat Captain Morgan which takes twice as long as other operators with multiple pick ups / drop offs on route and the lunch they serve you wouldn't fed to the dogs! Find a better operator!
The day started with everything being very delayed. The bus was 30 min late to pick us up, it used 1 hour to get from St. Julians to Sliema.
Since we had booked the ticket through tripadviser I had better expectation than a really overbooked boat run by captain morgan.
The boat was so full of people, and there was nowhere to sit down. It was a total ripoff!
The queue to get water and drinks was never-ending.
Lunch was served after arriving to comino of course, since everybody had to get off the horrible boat, so we just bought some food in comino instead.
I will not recommend this trip at all! I'd rather pay 100 euros to be on a smaller boat and have a better experience. The whole day was ruined.
A great day out, although overcrowding and disorderly behaviour on board the rather tired boat detracted from the experience. It should also be noted that the cruise operator is Captain Morgan this is not listed in the tour information. The Blue Lagoon itself is extraordinary but in July and, one expects, throughout the summer grossly overcrowded. The Comino Hotel in the next cove is a nice escape, and for just 15 one can rent a shaded deck chair either by the private pool or on the beach: highly recommended.
This tour was a disgrace, noisy pile of junk for a boat and ran by Captain Morgan cruises, the one operator I was trying to avoid by booking through viator and trip advisor, I'm shocked you would put your name to such a terrible tour.
My experience included an hour picking up passengers on the bus just to end up where we started, a detour from our cruise to drop people off then pick up from Gozo, nowhere does it state this in the itinerary, there is a Gozo and Comino tour advertised separately, if I'd wanted that I would have booked it.
The engine of the boat made so much noise that we couldn't hear anything being said on the tanoid, the free drinks were nasty wine and beer, all teas and coffees had to be paid for.
Lunch was served buffet style and it was a couple of slices of cold meat, pasta and salad with an orange. after the boat had docked, there was no opportunity to use the boats facilities as we had to walk up steps in the cliff side and walk a good 15 minutes into the bay which is advertised on the photo and where the sunshades are, it was the most disgusting display of exploitation I have ever witnessed, after paying an extortionate price for deck chairs and umbrella we fought our way through the ice cream sellers and other kiosks thinking to have a quiet sit and admire the view, totally impossible because of the many boat sellers with megaphones and placards advertising even more trips, obscured our view.
Do not use this company, there are better trips with boats that have sun decks and ladders to climb into the water that moor nearer the bay without the need for the rocky walk or witnessing the shambles on the bay.
After 2 hours in the blue lagoon we were back on our way to Gozo to pick up the passengers who had docked there.
When we reached Buggiba bay we got off and walked to our hotel rather than endure an hour on the bus again.
A total shambles a rip off and certainly not a full day tour of Comino and the Blue Lagoon. Avoid at all costs and use another company, we weren't told this was captain Morgan until we got there.
Une excursion ponctué de dysfonctionnements et ne comprenant pas les prestations prévues. Elle a commencée par un transfert qui ne s'est pas présenté. Après appel tél., la solution a consisté en un mini-van plein dans lequel nous avons dus nous asseoir à l'avant. Confort médiocre. Sur le bateau, les boissons inclues devaient comprendre des soft drinks mais ne prévoyaient que de la bière et du vin blanc. Au cours de l'aller, l'équipage est tombé en rupture de l'un, ne laissant guère le choix pour la suite et le retour. Repas dégoutant, je n'ai pas mangé et ma femme à peine la moitié. Supplément exorbitant à régler sur place 15/personne pour la grotte bleue. Bien entendu l'équipage prévient bien -dès le début de la croisière- qu'il n'est responsable de rien. Heureusement qu'on a fait d'autres choses pendant notre séjour!...
