Memorable experience on this beautiful island.
Andreas_P, Aug 2023
Visit Ithaca Island is a must. It's a very beautiful island were time seems moving slower than normal. This tour is giving the opportunity to visit the most important spots on the island in one day. It was a great memorable experience.

Wonderful tour of Ithaca
Michelle_A, Jul 2022
Picked up very early doors but we were on the opposite side of the island to Sami! Departure was 8am from Sami, although I think the tour description says 9am! We got the ferry over to Ithaca, took around 35 minutes. Back on the coach then our day really began. We visited some beautiful parts of this lovely island, had good length stops. We got on the boat around 2 ish then we were on it for around 90 minutes with a swimming break in a little cove. It was a great day, loved Ithaca, such a quiet laid back island, as Greek islands were in the 80’s!
