Alles wie beschrieben gelaufen. Man wird am Abend vor Abfahrt kontaktiert, erhält alle notwendigen Infos, gibt seine Daten durch, ist rechtzeitig beim Check-In und nach Passkontrolle direkt auf dem Boot. Die Bootsfahrt ist ein klein wenig länger als angegeben, ansonsten alles sehr gut organisiert und nettes Personal auf der Fähre.

Booking provider messaged day before to get passport details and tell you info. This is exactly as advertised, picking up tickets was easy and quick, boat was nice and ran on time. If you plan on a day trip to Bodrum then consider booking to make everything run smoothly.

We had a very enjoyable, relaxing tour of Kos Town, using the self guided website. Lots of information and easy to navigate to do at your own pace.
