What people are saying about Heraklion Port, Greece

Idyllic day, perfect organization, boat bus with the guide Markos who is very caring for us, his explanations are precious so that we can make the most of our free time in Oia and Fira, thank you for this unforgettable moment

Super worth the cost & a genuinely nice experience! The captain and the co-captain were super lovely & made us feel very welcomed from the beginning. Fantastic views, a lovely time to swim & a right laugh. We loved it!

Very nice trip, nice team. The timing was good, at the beginning we had the bay almost to ourselves, but afterwards it filled up a lot, but by then we were already leaving. Everything went well, clear recommendation!

Very nice experience, good food, had very nice time snorkeling and just relaxing on the boat

Ich kann nur empfehlen! I can just recommend! For swimming and snorkeling.
