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

Kos was a bit of a disappointment. Totally touristy. Many places closed up for the winter. But the catamaran ride was nice. Not 20 min LOL closer to 35, but still very smooth and comfortable

There was no service at all. I have a family of four, a guy comes to pick me up with a car that had only one seat left. I drove my own car to the port. And the persons planning it where very rude.

Glad I booked this trip. The transfer was perfectly on time to collect me from my hotel and got us to the port quickly (and before others began to show up which meant our group was the first to check in, board/ go through security so no long waiting. There was a small coffee shop at the port. I booked the catamaran option and glad I did as it took about 20 minutes and gave me more time in Kos. Yes there are queues on arrival in Kos but it wasn’t terrible when I went (early Oct). Felt like I queued for maybe 15/20 mins to enter Kos. Would say I had about 5 hours or so in Kos and got to visit plenty of the main attractions, ancient ruins, have lunch, check out the indoor market, local shops and just explore before needing to be back at the port for 4:30pm for a 5:30pm departure from the port. Much longer queue in Kos to get back to Bodrum through passport control and waiting to board. Transfer was ready and waiting at the port and I was shown straight to my transfer when I arrived back. Lovely day trip and money well spent I believe.

Excellent day trip but be aware of busy queues at customs in both directions. The Kos side you are all shepherded into compound so make sure you go to toilet before long wait in caged area. Excellent visit is the Archealogical site..bus is the hop on hop off bus takes you right there the you have 90 mins or 180 mins before it returns.

Everything was good. The bus transport from the hotel was good, but the catamaran left 17:30 and we had to be 16:30 at the port, not 18:00 as written. At 18:00 we were already back in Bodrum
