Our trip to Spinalonga has been quite brilliant and yet a tad emotional on occasion. The boat trip and the guided tour was just fab and, all in all, I am so glad that we bothered to take a look at some of Crete's delights...More

Not sure why Lucky K wrote such a bad review. It's an historic venue. If you don't like history, don't go, try Disney instead! My wife is reading "the island" so for her to see the real place was a real treat. Thoroughly recommended.

First of all you need to pay 8eur for boat. Then you need to pay 8 eur for entry. You end up in ruins island. Waste of time and money. History poor and nothing interesting. If I could I would have skipped it !

Trip to Spinalonga is a just a taste of place rich in history and culture with interesting architecture and possibilities. The location of Elounda and Agios Nikolaos town give to this trip a unique taste of natural beauty and architectural and historical insights.

We took a half day boat trip to this Island weather was very hot so take lots of water with you. The trip was brilliant and guides explained each place of interest. My only moan is we didn't get enough time on Island. This was...More
