What people are saying about Ierapetra
We had a great guide who was really passionate about the history of Spinalonga. We also liked the swim during the trip to the island. What we did not like is that we had to wait rather long to get a ticket for the actual visit of Spinalonga, once we arrived at the island. That took quite some time. Time we would rather have spent on the island itself.
We did this trip on the way back to the airport. Perfect way to end the holiday. Lovely stop for a swim on the way. We had the perfect amount of time on the Island. Very informative guide. Would highly recommend. We hadn't taken in that it doesn't go from the Marina - the harbour is in a completely different place so there was a bit of a panic.
Information is misleading as to beautiful shells which were colorful rocks. You cannot hike around the trail as the sand is too difficult to walk in and it would take too long. We tried and could not even reach the near house on the map. Only boat was 11:15 and only boat back was 4:00 so the time there passed quickly.
The visit was really nice and the guide really funny. I ve heard a lot about the history of the island. But the guide took a long time to speak so the time was a bit short to visit. But, it is one of my favorite places from my all trip to Creta.
The tour was great. It was just long enough; not too drawn out, the boat ride provided great scenery of Elounda and nearby areas. The host-tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about her job.
