Amazing and well worth the trip
The booking was simple and meeting point is run very well. We had a great guy called George who was friendly and full of great humour. The trip itself was easy and very scenic. When we arrived in Symi the views and the people were amazing. Overall we found everything simple and great. Thanks George

Wonderful trip
Oct 2021 • Solo
Symi is a super beautiful island, you should definitely take this tour! Boat trip was nice, with views to the Turkish coast. In Symi I'd recommend to walk up to Chorio, to the castle ruins, and to the windmills to get perfect panorama pictures. Half price tours has a really good customer service and they inform customers very well, everything went smoothly

Fab day in Symi
Oct 2021 • Couples
Excellent service from being picked up on time by nice friendly driver.
Symi island is simply beautiful.We ate fresh seafood on the harbour side whilst feeding the hundreds of fish swimming in the sea right next to us.
Ni problems at all with the organisation of the trip and everything went smoothly.
We priced this trip up to do independently but we actually saved time and money by going with half price tours.
Thankyou.

Symi - a little gem in the Aegean Sea
Sep 2021
I booked online the trip and everything was perfect. A day before we were informed that we have to take Id and Covid pass. The staff was very friendly, especially Mr George who helped us with some informations about the Symi island. We spent 3 hours in Symi, enough time to make photos, eat a delicious octopus at Meet The Meat Taverna and buy some souvenirs. I recommend this trip and Half Price Tours. See you again next year!
