The 3-island tour was definitely a highlight for us. The boat was not overcrowded. We were mostly in the belly of the ship, where the ship was equipped with benches, sofas and lots of lovely details. The DJ's music was very good and far from low-quality Ballermann songs. The stops at the islands were after 40-60 minutes of boat travel. 1st stop approx. 1 hour with swimming and shopping on Pserimos 2nd stop approx. 90 minutes on Kalimnos 3rd stop approx. 40 minutes swimming stop off the island of Plati After the first stop, there was lunch on board, which was freshly cooked on board. We couldn't confirm that the alcohol flowed freely, although there were cocktails for €5 during happy hour. So it probably depends a bit on the audience. We went with our 2 children (7 and 10 years old) and we were all thrilled! Thank you for the great day!!!

Great day trip for all. We took two small children age 5 & 7. Both had a great time. Dinner was simple but lovely. The 2nd island you can take a bus to the volcano. It was very hot and not much fun for the smaller kids. The last stop you can jump off the boat, again great for adults and older children. Would recommend taking floats for smaller ones as the water is deep and there is a little swim to the beach. Would recommend this trip.

Nissiros is definitely worth a trip. The combination of free time and visiting the volcano in the afternoon was very good. It was also worth noting that the tour was offered in German. You don't find that often and it was helpful. Overall, a successful trip. Recommended.

Compared to the other boats our one definitely had the most fun! Our guide had fantastic humour and he definitely made the journey entertaining. Great value for money

Fun experience... 2 beaches just for us... The highlight was the last beach, crystal blue water and jumping from the railing into the water...
