What You Can Expect

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Beautiful Egina, Greece

Begin your experience with a pickup from your Athens hotel or a central meeting point. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to Piraeus port to catch your catamaran.
Step aboard and enjoy your approximately 2-hour cruise to your first destination: the island of Poros. As you relish 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 around an hour to explore independently. Visit a waterfront taverna, shop for souvenirs or, if you wish, head for Trinzia, a fascinating ruined Russian dockyard dating from the 19th century. Alternatively, visit Poros’ so-called Lemon Forest — an idyllic beauty spot of citrus trees, windmills and waterfalls.
Back at sea, enjoy a delicious Greek lunch at one of two sittings in the catamaran restaurant — either during your 1-hour 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. Go ashore at the colorful capital and enjoy around two hours 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 buzzing harborfront, visit an ouzeri or café, or browse the shops — the choice is yours.
Return to your boat and sit down to enjoy a colorful Greek folklore show of traditional music and dancing as you sail back to Piraeus.After an hour at sea, disembark and finish your trip with a drop-off in Athens.

Very good all round, staff, food, schedule and entertainment. Final cultural trip a little rushed the only comment.

This tour gave us the opportunity to easily visit three islands close to Athens - Aegina, Poros And Hydra. The islands were beautiful and although the stay on each was brief, we got a taste of each place and would love to return. The tour included lunch, which was very tasty, and the Greek dancing show on the ride back was fun. It was a lovely day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This was a very good day tour. The transfers and boarding of the boat were efficient and the boat was comfortable. The crossings were pleasant and the three islands were beautiful. Our guide on Hydra was informative. The buffet lunch was very well prepared and served. The food was delicious. The staff were helpful and strived to make sure sole travellers were seated to allow company and lots of conversation. I would do this tour again if I return to Greece - which I'd love to do.

Very well organized and interesting. Worth spending a day on. The folk music/dancing was a bit kitschy to my taste, but one can easily retreat to the upper deck and enjoy the view instead.

This was a long but fun day. The staff was very courteous and the food excellent. This is not a tour for very small, active children.
