Enjoy a walk and discover the historic landmarks. Then visit the leafy island of Poros with its insuperable natural beauty and thousands of pine trees expanding from the steep and sandy beaches, composing the romance and calmness of the island.

This trip just blew me away. It greatly exceeded my expectations in all aspects except one sad incident that I will speak to. All the arrangements (pick up, drop off and service during the cruise) were superb. Particular mention to be made of Kostas (the attendant in the VIP cabin). He was friendly, attentive and on top of things. The 10 am appetizers were appetizing and the lunch was delicious. The incident that I was unhappy with involved a staff member (I believe it was the purser dressed in tight pants and a jacket). During the music and dance show in the last leg of the journey, me approached me to confirm my drop-off. He accidentally kicked my glass of Uzo. Offered no apology and proceeded to leave. He then realized that I was not a happy camper and remarked “I will send another one”. Well that never arrived. His demeanor was, at best, stand-offish. Left a very bad taste in my mouth at almost the end of the cruise.

Breathtakingly tour with excellent, courteous service (VIP Guest)

The cruise was excellently organized and the service on board was extremely friendly and courteous. We booked the trip as "VIP guests" and were picked up punctually at the hotel and driven back again in the evening, which we greatly appreciated. The food was fine, only the main course at lunch was not so good. Nevertheless, we felt completely comfortable and thanked the crew (especially the tour guide Georgia!) for the wonderful day we enjoyed.

The trip was globally fantastic and I would recommend this trip to anyone who need a little privacy and confort during a usually crowded cruise like this.
