The bus was on time and very comfortable. All the stops were great and they allowed a decent amount of time to wander, although Poros was a little too short. Luckily, that was the least interesting of the stops. The food and beverage service was good and I would recommend this trip. Obly 4 stars because they didn't enforce their mask policy, even on a crowded bus.

Great Trip! One of highlights of my Trip! The tour was very well organized. Booking via Get your guide was a breeze. The trip planner organized a pickup up and drop off from a designated hotel only a few minutes walk from where I stayed. The on-boarding was quick and easy. The boat is big and well upkept. The service staffs were kind and polite! Prices for drinks and foods were reasonable! Buffet lunch was provided. The whole trip takes 11-12 hours and cost a little over a hundred € is a great deal! Highly recommended! Thank you!

Super arranged, everything taken care of to perfection. Nice and friendly crew. It is wonderful to get a feel for the islands in addition to Athens. Highly recommended! Unfortunately, the photos of this activity include photos of two ships. If you expect to sail on the best of the two ships (of which the close-up photos are), you will be disappointed. Lunch was simple and did not represent much. Activities on the islands are pricey, but that is to be expected of course. We have done the cultural tour on Aegina. It is a pity that the English-speaking guide spoke English in such a bad way that it was difficult to tie a rope. Excursion in itself was definitely worth it! All in all just had a super nice day and not a second regret! A top experience !!!!
