Kos is an excellent base for some island hopping and a great way to enhance your holiday is to see some of the sights and delights it has to offer. We offer lazy relaxing days out cruising the Aegean sea and visiting some of her neighbouring islands including the sponge island of Kalymnos; the volcanic island of Nisyros or the island of Patmos, home of the” Book of Revelations”. Or perhaps you want the exotic hustle and bustle of a Turkish bazaar in Bodrum where your bartering skills will be required. Imagine visiting two continents in one day?

We at Exquisite Kos Weddings work alongside the boat owners in Kos meaning we can offer you days out at affordable prices with huge savings for you and your family. Greek Night, Fishing Trip, and Island Tour are only a few of the excursions we can offer you.

A Volcanic Experience – Nisyros

Step back in time “to the land that time forgot”. We cruise to the island by the shortest route from the southern resort of Kardamena and arrive in just 50 mins. The journey to the actual volcano will take some 20 mins. It takes you up over 2000ft into the breathtaking terraced hills, before beginning a dramatic descent into the valley below where the crater lies. You’ll have the opportunity to walk in the actual crater and see for yourselves the hot air hissing and exploding out in certain areas – the most amazing experience for all and truly educational for children. You have time too to enjoy your own free time to wander the streets of the capital, Mandraki. Those who don’t mind a hike can make their way up the 200 steps to visit the tiny monastery perched on a rock hanging over the sea. A day of great experience, a different discovery and free time to explore for yourselves too.

Turkish Delight

Enjoy a full day out in Bodrum, a shoppers’ paradise! By far the best way to spend your time here is with free time to yourselves. It is for this reason we give you all there is to know and where to go with a plan of the town giving you the best opportunity to make the most of your time there. Many will enjoy visiting the sights too, not just shopping. Market day in Bodrum is a must for great bargains. The market is on all day once a week, a busy day, but full of atmosphere too as the locals go there in full force to get their bargains too. Some will prefer to visit on a non-market day, which we arrange too. Either way you choose what you want to do. De-stress with a Turkish bath and massage, discover the ancient sites…Whatever you decide you’ll have a delightful day out.

Sunset in Zia

See the spectacular sunset from the highest mountain village, Zia. This is something many enjoy doing a couple of times on holiday. An evening out of resort, a change to visit a mountain village to enjoy an evening meal washed down with at least a couple of glasses of wine and know you’re going to be taken to your hotel at the end of the evening. A meze meal here is your best choice, lots of small plates to try. Enjoy free time and browse around the many craft shops displaying lace, pottery, herbs and spices amongst the many other local products one can buy.

Paradise beach

A whole day in Paradise … crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean. Go in and search for the bubbles, like a natural Jacuzzi in the sea! The activity from the volcano on nearby Nisyros appears in areas under the seabed here. Therefore the pressure of air forces bubbles to ooze in areas where you have the opportunity to “chill” and enjoy this amazing experience in a natural environment as one would in a Jacuzzi. Enjoy a full day in Paradise” – a great day to top up that tan at a very affordable price for all.

Patmos & Lipsi

A trip by hydrofoil – the fastest and most convenient way to make the most of time on this day. A journey of under 2 hours still gives you time to explore these two gems of the Aegean. The main is the Monastery of St. John The Divine on the Holy island of Patmos. You’ll have time too to visit the cave of the Apocalypse. To help you make the most of your day, we offer you the best advice on how to make the most of your free time here, which is a must before you visit. For those wishing to have an official guided tour of the monastery, a separate fee is payable in Patmos.

Greek Extravaganza!

Join us for a great evening out full of entertainment at the venue of “Fantasia” in Zia. Wine, dine and dance as the musicians play and the Greek dancers entertain us. Throughout the evening, dances and costumes vary from around the Dodecanese Islands to a few special dances from Crete. It’s up to you if you want to join in, some prefer to sit back and enjoy to sit and watch; even have a laugh at the others trying to keep up in time with the music.

Diving

You’ll have the unique experience of discovering the underworld in this part of the Aegean. We join Liamis Dive Centre on their venture aboard the Apollon, the only proper diving boat in Kos with its diving platform, professional instructors and equipment.
