It was great to be able to see other islands in Greece. But it was a long day, mind you, I didn’t sleep the night before. There’s lots of down time before, between, and after the islands. The islands were amazing, the first island Hydra was our favorite, we took our drone and got a few good shots. We went in November (off-season) so it was cold in the morning, so layer up appropriately and bring snacks - the breakfast offered was basic. The buffet lunch offered was okay. On the way back to Athens, the entertainment (Greek dancers and live music) seemed fun, but we were so tired we napped through it.

overall it's a great way to experience various islands in one day for a time pressed person. however, much more time on the islands is needed, 1.5 hours or 45mins is pretty woeful. the company seems more focused on a slow grind itinerary to have a captive audience for consumption eg. food, wine, snacks because bored people will purchase when a one hour journey takes 3 times as long. Also, don't disguise an ,"essential info talk" as a shore excursion sales pitch please and trap me in a lounge. Food was good, service was great, and boat in general was well kept. Only concern was alot of diesel fumes seemed to be getting into the passenger seating area and the smell was very unpleasant and I was concerned when my throat started to hurt.

Great trip. The stop at Poros was very short and could probably be skipped all together. Hydra and Aegina were beautiful and we did a donkey ride while at Hydra. Sit on the top deck of the ferry as much as possible. The views were incredible. Highly suggest this trip!
