We really enjoyed this tour. Mellasani Lake was amazing. The overlook for the beach was very pretty, and the scenery was amazing.

The Melissani Lake is beautiful and the boat ride was quite good. The waiting time to get to the boat was far longer than the time spent on the lake. It was probably because we were amongst the thousands of cruisers getting to the same destination within a short period of time. The Myrtos Beach from far looks nice. If you are more interested in taking pictures, that would be fine.

I would not recommend this trip or the provider. We were a group of 35 people who booked this trip - expecting as advertised: Boat ride to underground lake Melissani and a trip to Myrtos Beach Enjoy the ride in the spectacularly colorful Melissani Lake, a colorful underground body of water Spend some time lounging on beautiful Myrtos Beach. The bus that picked us up did not have air conditioning in the back of the bus nor did the speakers work appropriately. The tour guide heard our complaints about the air and the speakers and her response was I don't have a strong voice. Instead of Lounging at Myrtos beach we stopped on the side of the road and took a picture of the beautiful beach. We were very disappointed by the tour because we did not have a properly functioning bus, or a tour guide that could project her voice enough so we could understand what she was saying. In addition to that we did not get to lounge on the beach as expected. The bus ride to the lake was approximately one hour, wait in line for 30 minutes for a 10 minute boat tour of the lake, quick stop at the photo stop and back - all in 3 hours. I would not recommend this trip if you want to actually go to the beach or ride in a fully equipped coach bus.

Myrtos Beach was wonderful -- wear flip flops as the beach is extremely rocky! The Melissani Lake is a tourist attraction somewhat Disney-like with about a 7 minute boatride in a circle around an underground lake with stalactites and stalagmites all around. Interesting to see but a long drive for such a short time there.
