Great trip
, Sep 2019
My husband and I took this trip on our honeymoon. The bus picked us up and took us to the sea port. The boat we were on served food and drinks... they even had a happy hour! We were taken to two beautiful beaches. Would totally do this again. Price wise it was kind of silly because you’re not paying for a tour, you’re paying for the bus ride but it was nice to have to all taken care of for you!

Misleading description. This is NOT a tour. This is a TRANSFER with Cruise (read ferry) ticket. The start date shows here at 10am, however you will be collected from your hotel (if staying in Chania or surroundings) from around 8am. You will be in a big bus and will be stopping in several hotels along the way to Kissamos port. If you are alone, it may be a good deal. However if there are 2 or more in your party, then a taxi or arranged transfer may be better. Not just a better value, but also faster and with a decent departure time. Arriving at Kissamos port, your "guide", that is, the person who asked you for CASH to pay for the ferry when you boarded the bus, will leave the bus to buy tickets while you wait inside. In summary, all you are paying for here online is for a big bus, with someone inside, who will charge you for the ferry and buy the tickets when arriving at the port. Why can't you do this yourself? Now, the review of the ferry experience. We arrived late due to delays in picking up other travellers, so we actually departed at 10:40am instead of 10:20am as promised here in this website. In Gramvousa island, while in the itinerary here it says you will have 2 hours in the location, we had just over 1 hour. In Balos, instead of the 3 hours promised, we had 2. The ferry was terrible. It was huge and full of other people coming from various other tours or independently travelling. It was AWFUL. I wouldn't do it again and I would not recommend this tour to ANYONE, not even an enemy. However, if you really want to get the ferry, at least do it yourself and avoid being screwed over.
