Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Walking tour was good BUT the boat tour on the Grand Canal was awesome with only 5 of us in this nice wood finished water taxis and a fantastic tour guide answering our questions and sharing her insights! Only slight problem was between the walking tour and the boat tour is a big gap of about 4 hours... still, overall would rate this a good value if you only have a limited amount of time in this gorgeous city like we did.

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wonderful way to see 3 beautiful Greek islands close to Athens each with unique beauty and attractions. Hydra was completely picturesque with its cobblestone streets and "donkeys" public transport option...no cars allowed on the island.... Aegina offered option to see Temple of Athena Aphaia built in 480 BC which is one of the holy triangle of temples of ancient Greece including Poseidon's temple in Sounio and the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens. Aegina add on also brings you to the fantastic Cathedral/monastery of Saint Nektarios aside from seeing the wonderful countryside of olive, pistachio and orange farms along the way. Large ferry takes about 3-4 hrs to the first island Hydra which is in one word BEAUTIFUL, then shorter trips to the other two (Poros and Aegina) after that. In each island, you will have about 1-1.5 hrs to explore except for Aegina, the largest of the 3 wherein you can spend more time and add on the side trip to the temple and monastery. The buffet lunch on board the ship was excellent with a wide selection of food and drinks-- and later in the trip, Greek dancers in traditional garbs would entertain with audience participation. Overall a great way to spend a full day getting a glimpse of some of the beautiful Mediterranean islands of Greece each with their own unique attractions. Highly recommended!
