Island of tears

Interesting Crete - Spinalonga: Eye Travel minibus tour

With this unique minibus tour (max 8 pers) your Eye Travel guide shows you the Spinalonga island and other interesting places. Our first stop is in Agios Nikolaos where we have a fantastic view over the "Bottomless lake". You have some free time for a coffee and a stroll along the most eastern main city of Crete.

We pass the charming fishing village of Elounda, well known from the 70's TV series Who pays the Ferryman. 

After Elounda it is time for SPINALONGA, the last leper colony of Europe. A typical Cretan fishing boat brings you to the island, this takes no more than 10 minutes. On the island you make a tour in the leper village.

After finishing the trip on Spinalonga, a fishing boat brings you back to the small village of Plaka. Here you have the chance to enjoy a lunch with a beautiful view on Spinalonga. Plaka is a tiny harbor, so the unique opportunity to eat fresh fish.

After our lunch we are heading to an olive oil factory. You get a guided tour through the factory. All facts about olive oil, the pressing methods and grades of olive oil are explained. At the end of the tour you can taste different olive oils and other local products.

Fantastic day!

We booked the Interesting Crete tour which took us to Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Spinalonga, lunch at the charming little seaside town Plaza, then onto a stop to a monastery on the return trip. Our guide was friendly, relaxed and easy going which made out tour enjoyable and not rushed. Elounda, Plaka and Spinalonga are gorgeous.

Interesting Crete

On 14th September I went on the tour and had a great day! Sophie was fantastic and very knowledgeable! Our first stop was Aghios Nicholas where we had plenty of free time to explore. Then it was off to Plakka for our boat trip to Spinalonga. It was very good going on a private tour as I felt it was very informative and Spinalonga was well worth the visit. After Spinalonga, we returned to Plakka where we had lunch in a very good restaurant again time to explore if you wanted to. Last call of the day was to the Olive factory which was interesting. During the day there were photo stops to take in the beautiful views.
