TOURS – studying tours on offer is perfect research for any port. Agios Nikolaos, is a coastal town in Crete. East of the island’s capital Heraklion, north of Ierapetra and west of SitiaWhether.
If returning to Crete you may be looking for something new. The tour operators seek out anything worth seeing. Investigating what is available helps you make decisions about what you might achieve, whether walking, by public bus, within a tour, or safely with a ship organised tour.
Why do we say safely with the ship? Because the ship will wait for a ship-arranged tour to return even if it is late. It is in contact with the ship should anything happen to a guest. There are many reasons, not least the tour may be included with your cruise package. Also, the ship monitors the tour it resells to ensure you get what the tour offered. Everything from the time it stops and starts to the cleanliness of toilets. It is not in control of the elements, but it aims to give its guests the best experience it can. So we suggest before the ship tours are out, you do some research to be prepared.
A local taxi picked up on the day may or may not be a great tour, but it remains anonymous and has no reputation. The later you take a private taxi at the dockside, our experience is the less they will show you because they all like to finish at the same time – early as possible. A tour operator, such as those from Get Your Guide listed here, or one booked via the ship has a body that can answer criticism if required. Sure you can shop around, we suggest you research around then look at the ship and our collection from Get Your Guide which should be the widest selection.
