Great experience ... but not this boat for seasick tourist
Zsuzsanna_K

We didn't know that we are seasick... with this boat ( not the latest design ) you can feel the big waves and the moving of the boat can make u dizzy... if u have this problem you should maybe choose another company with bigger and moderner boat. The trip was very nice; the bay was amazing, no other tourist. The captain and his staff was very funny and friendly , did jokes and entertained the tourist. Symi is a small but lovely island. We had no luck with our restaurant choice . The sponge shop is vey recommended. Low price for a not fancy boat but a great entertainment and this is the most important.

Day Trip & Swim Experience To Symi Island
Suzanne_H

This is full day trip so be prepared to be out all day but its worth doing with a stop at the beautiful St Georges Bay and then a few hours in Symi itself. We saw a few boats just coming into the Bay and then saling off - it was fantastic to be able to swim. Bring things to do for the 2 hour trip each way. There is a small kiosk for tea and coffee and snacks on the boat. Lunch in Symi is easy to sort as there are so many restaurants it was just about making a choice, They all seemed reasonably priced and certainly our lunch was great! The boat is not luxurious by any means but its all run very well and COVID is taken seriously.

Swimming in clean waters and Dolphins.

We chose this tour for the price point (good value) and the beach stop. Both lived up to expectations and we had a great time going to Symi. Seating is self served so if you prefer a top deck area, arrive early. We arrived just before departure but this worked in our favour: we got cooler seating below and direct access to the lower deck, which was less crowded and more exciting - we saw Dolphins and jelly fish at this level. The beach stop was a lot of fun, and Symi just beautiful. The boat has a bar / cafe and swimming assists for all levels.

Booked this trip on Tuesday. Got confirmed and mobile coupon ready for Thursday On Wednesday afternoon I was asked to visit Chalki island instead, because the boat to Symi had been postponed until the next week. It was less than 24 hours for free cancellation. Very disappointed!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2020
Dear Phuong, we are very sorry to hear that you feel disappointed, but with this pandemic it is unprecedented times, and sadly not everything is in our hands. We tried our best to offer you an alternative, or a full refund option. You said that you would love to visit Chalki instead, so we proceeded with an alternative, which is actually more expensive trip, but we kept the original price you paid for Symi, without charging you extra for it. If you would prefer the refund, we would refund you in full directly. So not sure why this was not discussed prior the trip, if you felt that way. Anyways, we hope that you enjoyed your trip to Chalki, and we would suggest next time to be more open to discussion for your alternatives before the trip. Enjoy your holidays!

A nice all-day trip!

Symi is a beautiful little island. The boat is very comfortable with plenty of space. Passengers should be aware that no food or drink is provided gratis on the boat. Everything is for purchase and you are on the boat for about 1 and half to 2 hours each direction. The boat provides snorkle gear/noodles etc. for anyone who doesn't bring their own. When you get to St. George Bay, the boat must anchor fairly far out from shore. If you want to swim to shore, make sure you/your children are good swimmers--It's a distance!. Otherwise, you can just swim around the boat. We took this ride in the summer. It was extremely hot. If you're doing the same, I would recommend sitting inside the boat, not on the upper deck. Also, once you eat lunch on Symi, there is precious little else to do that offers any shade, and you cannot get back on the boat early. We are not big shoppers, so we felt like we had too much time on the island. Get to the boat early! Parking is a disaster. The people who run the cruise said they would help with partking if we arrived at 9, but all their help consisted of was to recommend looking for a space on the nearby streets. Not helpful. There were no spaces nearby. Overall, a nice day!

Tolles Erlebnis mit Klasse Preis-Leistungsverhältnis
Uwe_R

Die Tour war ein echtes Erlebnis. Zu Hafen Symi als Must-Seen eines Rhodos-Aufenthalts erspare ich mir Kommentare. Die fast 3 Stunden Landgang waren ausreichend. Das Highlight der Tagesfahrt war der Badestop in der St-Georgs-Bucht. Tolles Panorama, das Schiff ankert dicht unter Land, die Schiffsgäste haben die Bucht fast für dich allein! Die anderen Schiff von Rhodos kommend sind an der Bucht nur vorbeigefahren. Also echt ein Klasse Angebot. Das Schiff "Zeus D" ist zwar schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen und könnte die eine oder andere Renovierung vertragen, die Crew war sehr gut drauf und hat die Gäste gut betreut. Die Abwicklung über viator und vor Ort mit "Half-price-Tour" war völlig unkompliziert, wenn auch der Treffpunkt zum "Check In" etwas ungewöhnlich war, da nicht direkt am Hafen bzw. Schiff. MIT Selbstanreise war das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis Top. Bei Pick-up-Service hätte es das Doppelte gekostet. Mit einem moderneren Schiff hätte es volle 5 Sterne gegeben.
