The transport from our place of stay to the port was in a beautiful, well-kept coach and was very nice. The ship itself pleasantly surprised us with its appearance because it was huge! We were delighted with the views and the stay on the islands. We had 70 minutes on the island of Hydra (it made the greatest impression in terms of landscape, it was beautiful), Poros, a little short time - 45 minutes, but it is the smallest island, so we saw what we wanted to see :) and Egon, where we had 2 hours, which was really enough to leisurely explore and try the best pistachios for which this island is famous. After the first island, we received lunch. There wasn't much to choose from, but it was great that you could eat local vegetables baked in sauce and fresh fish that melted in your mouth. There were also salads, chickpeas, chicken in a delicious sauce, pasta, baked potatoes and dessert. We had great weather, we sat on the roof of the yacht until sunset and admired the views.

It was really good and well prepared trip from Athens to the island. *Thanks to the concentration of one key island, we could stay more than 3 hours in island to enjoy local sightseeing and lunch. *Trip agency is really well organized and always quick response and detail. I could feel really reliability and not worrying. *Guide person is really good and kind person with high hospitality and knowledge. Very much appreciated. *The arranged transportation between hotel and port (big ban type of car) is also good and well prepared. *Ship (quick boat) is also very nice. Interiors are very new and modern with bar, and thanks to this speedy boat, also we could save our time instead of slow big ferry. *If price is all inclusive (guide+boat), it’s more clear in the beginning. Overall, we are very much satisfied with the trip !!

Pick up was on time, we got about 45 mins in Poros and an hour and a half in Hydra / Aegina Hydra was beautiful, probably my favourite island - lots of cats and donkeys! Aegina had a lot of nice bars and restaurants and pistachio shops A lot of time spent on the boat travelling between islands so make sure to take a pack of cards or a book - food was ok, drinks were not included in the price and were quite expensive on board (€4 for a pepsi/€4.50 for 100ml of coffee - when compared with Athens it’s a rip off) Entertainment was good on the way back from Aegina to Athens but by then we were too tired to join in 😂 Overall I’d rate it but it’s a very long day and you won’t be fit for anything afterwards - maybe the perfect time to try Greek Mcdonald’s !!

It was a fun, especially the music and dancing at the end of the tour. I think the Hydra tour should've lasted a little longer and was a bit too pricey for the short tour we had.

Excelent tour. The ferry travel was quite nice. The time in each island was appropiate. The lunch service included also very suitable.
