What people are saying about Symi

The trip to the island is on the big ferry. I had imagined something smaller under "Boot". Nevertheless, it was a great trip. The island is very beautiful and the time is also good to climb the stairs, have something to eat or drink. Mail with the pick-up dates should not be sent shortly after booking and then under a different Greek name, get your guide did not show up. Sank in spam. Express pick-up location more precisely: pick-up hotel xy in front of the entrance, ... not Hiotel xy on the main street, ... my hotel was not on the main street, I walked there for 5 minutes, accidentally the bus still caught me.

Very good experience despite my mistake of finding myself with a German speaking guide and group. Guide named Chloé very friendly who gave us the information in English. Very beautiful island with a magnificent monastery. Transfer on time, charming driver. Lots of fun doing this excursion.

There were a few issues with the pick up but after that the excursion was very well organised. Symi is a beautiful island that is definitely worth checking out - and the monastery was very impressive too!

Great trip to a beautiful island!

The tour guide was very knowledgable and gave a great history of the island. Would recommending looking at staying overnight for one night so you can visit some of the beaches.

Characteristic island, very pretty. It would take longer to visit it.
