This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

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.

A really lovely day trip to Kos. Smooth ride on the Catamaran. The queuing at passport control took a while, but didn’t spoil the day. We recommend this trip.

If you want to spend the day queuing in the sun with security shouting at you and blowing whistles at you to move then this is for you. First we spent an hour queuing at the Turkish border passport control. The boat ride is not 20 minutes, it does not take off on time and took 45 minutes. On arrival to Kos, we then spent an hour and a half queuing in 34 degrees watching as they let some people skip the queue but made everyone else including children and pregnant women queuing. You then only have 4ish hours to tour around Kos as although it states return time is 6pm, you must be there at 4pm to queue again. Also, ciesta time is 1-3pm so most places shut. The queue for passport control coming back was also directly in the sun with no shade and to use the bathroom it is only when you get through this queue it is available. We got on our boat at 5:30pm after queuing since 4pm, and were suppose to depart at 6pm. It did not depart until 7pm due to the queues. Once you arrive back in Turkey you then have to queue again for passport control in the sun. Fights and arguments began to start as certain people were allowed to skip while children including sick and disabled children had to wait. One man asked if his wife could skip as she was heavily pregnant and struggling but she was told no! Our bus back to our hotel was suppose to depart at 6:30pm originally but we did not leave until 8:40pm and then the bus refused to drop us to our hotel so we had to walk 20 minutes back from where it dropped us, not knowing the way. I have been on many day trips like this one in the past but none have been as horrendous. If anyone is thinking of doing it, I’d advise you not to. It is a waste of money and quite dangerous for how long you are left to stand in direct sunlight.

Beautiful Island, nothing to say but conditions to pass customs are awful. It takes one hour at least for each control side (Turkish and Greek). That means, at least 4 hours for the day excursion. Unbelievable ! Without speaking hot weather during summer period. To be honest, you must forget this excursion. Otherwise good luck and BE VERY PATIENT !

We had a great time on the ferry boat also on the Kos island ! We couldn’t travel around the Kos island because no bus coaches available as no season started so we walked around the town and stopped by the beach after . Next one will gonna be greater!
