A long day on the water of the beautiful Greek isles closest to Athens. The ferry boat was large with a capacity of about 250 people. You could purchase snacks and beverages onboard. First stop was Hydra where the only mode of transportation is burros that are lined up along the waterfront waiting for your photo ops. Of course the tour doesn't include the walking tour offered here or the seperate bus tour on Egina but when in Greece, you might as well splurge for the extra 40 or so Euros. The buffet style lunch onboard was quite sufficient and filling. The guides were quite knowledgeable as well.
Totally worth the VIP experience where you are away from the crowds. The service was amazing and so was the food. The islands were absolutely gorgeous and would do it again.
What a remarkable experience that day was! The cruise itself was fun, the staff were cheerful and helpful and the buffet was great!
The islands were absolutely beautiful and we were glad we agreed to have the tour guides from the ship show us around and provide further insight into the various sights on the islands.
Great tour! It was fun seeing three islands in one day. Only thing I would recommend is more time on Aegina and Hydra
Absolutely loved this tour. The boat ride was a little long but it was well worth it.

The boat ride was a pleasure, the buffet outstanding, and the atmosphere festive. It is a lot to see three islands in one day and so there is an ache to see more of each place visited. My top objective was to see the Temple of Aphaia which is the reason I booked the tour. However, I also wanted to see Greek islands beyond Mykonos and Santorini, thus having three in one day turned out to be a wise choice as well.
LOVED this whole tour, but Hydra was just wonderful.
We upgraded and glad we did. The experience was great and the Purser in the VIP lounge was fantastic.
Excellent tour! We did the VIP option and had very attentive staff addressing all needs and we enjoyed sitting comfortably in a non crowded upscale separate segment of the ship. Unlimited snacks and beverages, helpful for everyone.
All three islands were beautiful and tours were offered at Hydra and Egina, one of which is included for no additional charge with VIP.
The other is extra, but you can choose which island will be your Freebie.
There was enough time at each island for pictures, shopping and a little exploration, but not much more.
On the way back, the sea was a little choppy and the boat rocked quite a bit, with chairs falling down and glasses breaking.
Staff even passed out barf bags at one point, just in case.
Thankfully that was only the last 30 minutes of the trip back to port.
I would still do it again though. The islands are beautiful enough and so different from the other more historically significant sites around Greece, that this trip is an important addition to a well balanced vacation.
I upgraded for the vip experience which my family really appreciated as I had a 11 and 16 y/o. There were only 10 people in the large stateroom with private service. Everyone loved the tour more than they thought they would and the islands were beautiful and we loved seeing the Temple of Athea. We wound up seeing all 3 major temples so this was a bonus. A long day but a very nice way to spend a day.
