Caves were good. 1 hour stop in nothing town on way back to ship was a complete waste of time.

Wow! This was the excursion I was most looking forward to on our cruise, and it did not disappoint. The passage through the cavern is largely silent (unless you have chatty boat mates). Some of the formations look like they inspired Dr. Seuss. If you have mobility issues though, this is not a tour to take as there are numerous steps and about a half mile walk out through the dry portion of the cavern (alternately you can take the boat back to the starting point and just navigate the stairs).

Tour of the Diros caves in boats is reminiscent of "Phantom of the Opera" or "Pirates of the Caribbean". Dramatic stalactites, the caves go on and on! Mind boggling, eerie but beautiful. Also had a tour of a small Greek town with a very pretty stone church. Bus trip to the caves is about 45 minutes but guide was very informative. Read Less
