7:30 AM

Please arrive 1 hour before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

This activity will end right where it started.For Vip service please inform us with your address in order to inform you for pick up point and time.
Begin your experience with a pickup (if option selected) from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your ship.

Step aboard and cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you take in the views and sea air, hear about the culture and sights on the three islands so you can make the most of your time on each.

Arrive at Poros and enjoy time to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest—an idyllic spot filled with citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls.

Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the ship's restaurant—either during your cruise to Hydra or the next leg of your journey between Hydra and Egina.

As you approach Hydra, admire the pretty harbor and get tips from your guide on what to see and do on the island. Head ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy ample time to look around on your own. Amble down the narrow lanes, relax over coffee, or buy souvenirs in the quaint shops.

Afterward, cruise to Egina, also known as Aegina. Here, either join an optional excursion (own expense) to see the well-preserved ancient Temple of Aphaia or delve into the picturesque port town. Stroll along the harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops.

Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus. Disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off (if option selected) in Athens.

VIP Cruise Experience: Upgrade to enjoy special amenities and be spoiled in the VIP class lounge. Start with a shared transfer from hotel to port, enjoy a private check-in, and then relax in the VIP lounge. Enjoy a welcome drink and savor a buffet lunch in the VIP dining room. The VIP area is equipped with Wi-Fi, and on the second deck a tax-free luxury goods store awaits. In the summer, be charmed by the sun deck and spacious open space with a comfortable sitting area and bar.

Fast but beautiful

While the trip was wonderful we didn’t have a lot of time on the islands, even less than what was advertised. The crew on the ship were fabulous. I just can’t say enough good things about the crew. However I had a bad experience on the excursion in Aegina. We had a crazy busy driver who drove like a maniac up to the Temple of Aphia. He drove up to the temple around windy rounds at mind blowing speeds. I got very motion sick and was not able to enjoy the excursion. I’m daft I was so sick from the ride up the remainder of my day was ruined including the boat ride home. If he had just slowed a little bit on the windy roads it would have been avoided.

Good day out at sea
Stephanie_B

This tour is great if your only going to be visiting Athens and want to escape the city for a day. The scenery is beautiful and the boat offered drinks and food for when you’re in the water ( for an up charge). Lunch is included and it was moderate. Nothing special, but it was filling and tasted ok. They offer tours for when you’re on the islands, which given the short amount of time that we’re on the islands, I recommend it to see the island in the given time slot. My only critique is that I wish that we spent more time on the islands. We were only on Poros for 45 minutes. However, I did like being on the sea. It gets windy, so bring a jacket and scarf to keep warm if you want to be on the upper deck and not indoors. I chose this because I had better views and didn’t have to wear a mask. If you get sea sick easy, take meds before because it can get rocky at times. Overall, I’m glad that I went in this tour and I do recommend it to others.

Hydra was a special place, enjoyed the scenery throughout the voyage and pistachio gelato. Disappointed that coffee was 8 Euros for two when the brochure I have says it is included.

Beautiful Islands But Long Boat Trip
Kamela_B
, Sep 2021
While the islands were beautiful the day was long and majority of the trip is spent on the boat (7+ hours). I would recommend taking a day trip to just one of the islands rather than trying to fit in all three. Hydra was a favorite and we went to a beach in Egina instead of one of the tours and that was a nice change of pace. The tours were fine but would recommend wandering the island on your own unless you really want to see the locations they are taking you to. We preferred to wander. We did not do the VIP upgrade and I'm glad we didn't spend the money. While there is a private room, it does not have a view of the water or anything, so you're stuck in an inclosed space that has no view even if it has strong AC. Food was good and everyone on the boat was great! Loved getting to see more islands but didn't feel like it was enough time and personally was just too much time on a boat for me with little else to do. I think because of covid they didn't have their typical entertainment but don't think that would have made much of a difference either way.

Dear client, We are thanking you for your review. This cruise give the opportunity to see 3 diffent Saronic islands and unfortunately in order to sail to all islands you have to be on the boat all day! We are very glad that you enjoyed your lunch and for your kind words for the crew. Hope to see you again in Greece! best regards Hara Kritikidou Customer Service Manager

Breakfast on hydra island is great, food on board is terrible, not enough time to see islands, 45 min is not enough to explore an island, the star only for saxophonist.

Port of calls - was a good look at what Greek island have to offer - three different type of island - the hotel pick was confusing, they don't stop at all hotels ... had to take a taxi to the pick up location
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Dear client, Thanks for your feedback and hope that you have nce memories from your cruise to the Greek islands. As for the pick up , we are giving the day before pick up points , addresses and times to all our clients. It is not possible to stop the bus in all Athens hotels therefore we informing people before in order to be on time for the pick up. As you mentioned that you took taxi to the Amalia hotel means that the bus pass from the pick up point on time and you wasn't there. Unfortunately we can't delay long time the pick up as a lot of other people waiting for. Kind regards Hara Kritikidou Customer Service Manager
