7 hrs on a boat, 3 hrs on 3 islands
Jayshree_K, Apr 2024
You pay extra for hotel pickup, but they refuse to pick you up at your hotel in the city centre. Their excuse is that they can’t stop at every hotel, than why do they mislead you with the option?! You gather at 7.15 to than pick up some special people (probably paid for VIP). To than arrive around 8 at the boat. Boat is very crowded (300 people), hard to find a good seat because other groups arrived earlier. Than you spend 3 boring hours on the boat to Hydra, to only spend 1 hr 15 min on the island. Than you get a mediocre lunch on the boat with little flavor, and spend another hour to Poros. Only 30 min on the small island. Could have skipped it for more time on the other 2. Than another hour and 20 min on the boat to Aegina for 1,5 hour on the island. To little time to visit the temple on the other side of the island unless you pay for an excursion. Than another 1 hour 40 min back to Athens. Would have liked more time on the islands and less time on a slow 7 hour boattrip
It was well worth being a VIP for the day!!!

On-board entertainment is worth it
Ashley_S, Dec 2023
Pros: - convenient way to explore some of the islands - excellent on-board entertainment and food (I had VIP tickets) - friendly staff - options to do this without spending a lot of money (VIP includes one on shore excursion) especially if you decide to explore the islands on your own - hotel pick up and drop off Cons: - if you use an assistive device (i.e., wheelchair), the cobblestones on the islands are difficult to maneuver - if you use an assistive device (i.e., wheelchair), consider skipping the walking tour of Hydra. The guide said she'd go slow so that my group (one person in a wheelchair) could keep up; but we ended up losing the group after the second stop. - Walking tour of Hydra and panoramic tour of Aegina had heavy religious overtones and discussion of the famous people who visited the islands. - only 40 mins - 1 hours on shore for each island; if you do a tour, it will take almost all of this time
Beautiful 3 Islands Cruise
Carolyn_M, Dec 2023
It was amazing visiting all three islands! The Athens Day Cruise was a great way to do this! The staff were super helpful and attentive! Even though I wished we had more time on the islands it was a great way to know which one I would visit again! Aegina was the largest, and I loved the Aphaia Ruins and visiting the monastery, one of the most beautiful churches! Hydra was probably my favorite! No cars, everyone walks or rides miles, lovely port! It was a long day, but well worth it!
Don’t take this. Spend money and go to one island.
John_S, Nov 2023
Lack luster rush job of putting you in islands for too short of time. This really was a bad version of the bare minimum. I felt cheated.
Overall good but they need to ditch the broadcast of selling extra tours on the islands, improve the food
Joe_S, Nov 2023
Aside from the lunch this was a good trip. The excursions that are on the islands were an annoying surprise, they talk over a terrible microphone trying to sell you these extras so that was not a great thing. Hand out a flyer, don’t broadcast commercials while we are trying to enjoy the cruise. Other than that, good staff, amazing views, islands
Beautiful day on the water
Kurt_E, Nov 2023
My nephew and I took the one day cruise to Hydra, Poros and Aegina on a beautiful fall day in November. I had been on this cruise many years ago, but my nephew had not so I wanted him to experience this. We booked our passage in the VIP section which was well worth the small extra cost because it included some extra perks. We were so glad we went on this particular day, as the cruise was canceled the following day due to bad weather. Want to do a shout out for the man who took excellent care of the VIP section. His name was Kosta and he was like a mother hen watching over his chicks. He helped make the trip really enjoyable.
Debra_J, Nov 2023
Hydra was nice the boat, food and show were good. The boat staff was very experienced which showed in a horrible storm. Very disappointing experience in angeana where I was hoping to enjoy. Very Rushed and local tour person (blond from hydra) gave no information but to hurry up. The weather got better and they gave us no time.
Not terrible but still had a good time.
Chris_H, Oct 2023
The pickup and return from our hotel was a bit sketchy…. Communication was poor. Ultimately worked out but not without stress. The cruse was good but seemed overbooked. There were not as many seats as passengers. I still have the overall score a 4. But could have easily been a 3 or even a 2.
Disappointing marketing
Ricardas_L, Sep 2023
Trip was fascinating, all organisation was good in timing, pick up, come bac, etc. Meanwhile i have nonpossibility to use my point dollars from my profile account. Web showed me that i have 18 dollars, so book a trip and spend them, because they expire soon. I have book the trip, however no any discount, nor to use dollars from my account. That was rather disappointing, fake marketing
3 island tour
peter_t, Sep 2023
Hydra was great. The scenery was spectacular . Service was good. People were accommodating good time
Amazing views, food and culture
carolyn_j, Aug 2023
Beautiful islands with amazing opportunity for pictures. A little more time in Poros would have been nice to enjoy the island a little more and experience the culture a bit more. The downside to this excursion was that the boat did not leave the port until close to 9:00 am and we had a 7:15am from the pick up location.
Beautiful day in the islands!
Lisa_C, Jul 2023
Well planned day with very smooth logistics. This ensured we could maximize our time on each island. Loved the crew, the energy of the dancers and the overall comfortable cruising experience. The islands are beautiful and I thought I would feel very rushed, but it actually worked out to be a nice pace and seeing enough to know where to come back and spend more time when I can!
Almost perfect!
Roger_S, Jul 2023
It was really an outstanding day. We had our own private areas on the ferry, a lot of personal attention, and all of the other benefits of the VIP class described in the brochure plus a lot more. Well worth the extra charge! The Only exception to a perfect day was the panoramic tour which featured a bus with a very poor speaker system, and a guide, and less than total command of the English language. Certainly did not ruin the experience, but it kept it from being perfect highly recommended.
Overpriced for island touring
Angela_C, May 2023
Hydra and Aegina were beautiful, would rather have spent more time in these two islands and skipped the second one. We got 1.5 hrs in both these ports and 45 min in Poros which is barely enough time to get off (waiting in line to get off the boat) and enjoy. Too many ppl onboard. Had to fight for seats, and there was a long time in between islands. Lunch was great! Entertainment was great. Most of the time is spent onboard. Rechargeable outlets available. Plenty of restrooms.
Nice tour, not as advertised
Alma_G, Jul 2022
Took this tour by myself and enjoyed it quite a bit. I did the VIP package which made everything tons easier and was worth it for me. The options on the tour were not as described tho, so please note that the swimming tour is not available anymore and they basically just say you have to do the tour bus with Aegina. The tour guy was super rude and didnt explain this. I got this information from the server in the VIP lounge which was amazing. Very sweet. The food served was terrible not even greek just pasta and some rice in a red Ragu-type sauce. They didnt announce the music/dancing part in the lounge so I missed it completely. The islands are amazing and totally worth it.
Excellent tour but don't miss the boat
johndhughes, Jul 2022
Very helpful staff friendly and well organised. We missed the boat and had to take a taxi to Poros. Lunch super
Worth going for this island tour
Dominik_J, Apr 2022
I have enjoyed this island tour. I liked all three islands. Especially Hydra and Poros. I felt that the price for optional tours could be mentioned in the description, so travellers could manage their budget before the tour. I was disappointed with the fact that lunch has not included a soft drink or water. The soft drink should be a part of the lunch on the boat. Despite of those two points I would still recommend that your to friends.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Dominik, thank you for taking the time to review our tour and for pointing out the description missing the cost of the shorex, we will add them prompty! Also, we appreciate sharing with us the view regarding soft drinks at the lunch price, we will share them with out management. Kind regards
