  • "Kassos to Sitia"

    We were very happy with the trip overall. Two points for improvement: the toilets need to be cleaned more often; there is seating available but inconsiderate people often take more than they need - perhaps an announcement could be made to remind everyone to be more thoughtful.

  • "Easy Work but check your check in "

    Smooth and easy journey from Rhodes to Karpathos. Only feedback is clarification needed on how early you must arrive. Our confirmation email states we needed to be there 120 minutes before departure. However once we arrived at the ferry port, we were only advised 60. We had a 8am departure and arrived way before 6am which after an early morning wake up seemed unnecessary.

Anafi Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Anafi lies to the east of the island of Thira, or Santorini. The island is popular with walkers who can take the island's old paths, sometimes up steep hills, to walk from one side of the island to the other. For visitors looking for a more relaxing way to spend their time, popular beaches on the island include Klisidi and Roukounas. One of the highest peaks in the Mediterranean, Mount Kalamos, is 420 meters above sea level and can be found on a peninsular at the eastern end of the island. On top of Mount Kalamos is the Kalamiotissa church, rebuilt in large part after an earthquake in the 1950s.

The island's port, along with the rest of the Cyclades, are connected by ferry to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina. Ferries to the other islands in the Cyclades, including Ios, Santorini, Kimolos, Naxos, Paros and Milos also depart from Anafi along with ferries to the islands of Crete, Rhodes, the Dodecanese and the East Aegean Islands.


Heraklion Guide

Located on the Greek island of Crete, Heraklion is the island's largest city and is one of the main urban centres in Greece. The city can trace its history back to at least the 9th century AD when its development began and then later came under the influence of the Arabs, the Venetians and the Ottomans. Popular sites in the city with tourists include the fortification walls that are essentially the boundary of the old city. These were first built by the Arabs and then reinforced by the Venetians. From the seven bastions, only the Martinengo bastion survives to this day and is where visitors will find the tomb of the renowned writer N. Kazantzakis, overlooking the city. The city was also a venue during the 2004 Olympic Games, and hosted games of the football tournament.

Located in the city's old port, visitors can still see the vaulted tarsanades where ships used to be built and also the 16th century Koule Fortress. From the port, ferries depart to destinations including Santorini, Ios, Paros, Mykonos and Rhodes. There are also ferry services to the Greek mainland port of Piraeus.
