This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bodrum Cruise Port, 14, Kumbahçe, İskele Cd., 48400 Bodrum/Muğla, Turkey

Meet a driver at your hotel for 7:30am transfer to the ferry port. You'll have time for a quick trip to the duty-free shops before you set sail for the island: the open-deck ferry departs at 9:15am and takes 45 minutes, while the catamaran makes the crossing in just 20 minutes.

Upon  arrival in Kos, you'll see the Old Town is walking distance away—enjoy an independent day at your own pace. Head to ancient ruins such as the Altar of Dionysus and the Casa Romano, or visit a massive medieval crusader castle that's not far away. Sit under the tree of Hippocrates, then relax in one of the city's many open-air cafes. Make your way back to the harbor at least 30 minutes prior to departure to check in and pass passport control, then board a return ferry to Bodrum. The return ferry will depart at 4:30pm and the return catamaran leaves at 6pm.

A shuttle bus will meet you at the Bodrum ferry port for transfer to your hotel. 

Duration: 1 hour

We were picked up from hotel at 7 40 and taken to ferry port .Plenty of seating on the ferry and Kos is a beautiful place to spend a day,we had about 6 hours there. The only downfall was waiting in 4 queues at border control which we knew we had to do but didn't realise that there was so many people travelling. Snacks on board were reasonable priced with a good selection

unless you are happy spending 3 hours each way on the boat due to long lines getting off the boat and through immigration. There is lots to explore on the island but you will have only 3 hours to do so. We left the hotel at 7 am and returned at 7 pm.

So to start we were told to wait outside the hotel security for transport to the dock at 6:35. The mini bus didn't arrive until 7:15. When getting to the dock there was queuing through passport control which is understanding. We were also told the ferry would leave at 7:30 and didn't leave until 9:30. Nice journey across to Kos not bumpy at all. When arriving in Kos there was again queuing which again took about 45 mins to get through control. Kos is a lovely place and we had food at a nice Italian restaurant across the beach. After speaking to the worker on the boat we were told that the ferry on the way back would board at 16:00 and depart at 16:30. Once again that was not the case, the ferry didn't even turn up until 18:00. After finally getting back to Bodrum more queuing with the minibus driver waiting to take us back to the hotel. Overall poor day with plenty of queuing.

Actually we didn’t like Kos. It would be better if we had stayed another day in Bodrum. The island's historic spots are poorly maintained and the beaches are not so paradise-like we were expecting. When we arrived back to Bodrum, the driver took almost 30min to arrive with the suttle
