Full description

Explore the Saronic Islands of Poros, Hydra, and Aegina on this day trip from Athens. Cruise over the azure waters of the Mediterranean sea and have free time on each island. Savor a mouth-watering buffet lunch and enjoy an app-based audio tour of the island of Hydra.

After a morning transfer by bus from Athens to the port, hop on board a cruise ship and be invited to one of its spacious open decks. From the deck, you’ll have a great vantage point for enjoying views of the Greek coast. An app-based audio tour is also included in your trip. The first stop is the island of Poros, the smallest of the 3 islands you’ll visit on the tour. It’s separated from the Peloponnese by a narrow strait. Have ample time to explore the island and once you’re on board again you’ll be served a delicious lunch as the ship sail towards Hydra. Take in the stunning views as you enter the port of Hydra and see the cove that at one time served as a shelter for pirates. From the open decks, marvel at the dramatic landscapes of this island.

As an added perk, download the mobile app (instructions found on your confirmation voucher), put on your headphones, and listen as licensed guides and experts on storytelling present you with original stories and historical information about the area.

There will be time for you to explore the narrow, stone-paved streets of the island on foot, or by saddled donkey, which is the traditional mode of transportation. If you choose to go by foot, you can walk along the old seaside promenade and perhaps stop at some of the small shops. When you return to the ship, the captain heads for Aegina which is the largest of the 3 islands on the tour. Apart from its beautiful harbor, there are numerous interesting sites that you’ll have a chance to discover on your own. Alternatively, you can join an excursion to the Temple of Aphaia at an additional cost. Return to your cruise-boat and enjoy your one-hour sail back to the port. Disembark and finish your trip (if option selected) in Athens.

I will tell you why i give you maximum of stars : because of your crew on board the ship Cosmos we cruise one day on , and because of the 3 incredible islands!! Negative: The time in ports is way too short! Hydra it s amazing and so it s Poros & Aegina however there no time to visit , enjoy and relax. Also there is a disturbing part ; The ship was packed ( i understand you have a business to run) however you need to ensure that everyone has a seat. We all pay same price and not only that finding a seat was like finding Nemo , some amazing passengers were keeping chairs for their bags full of God knows what and become verbally aggressive when asked by the crew to give the chairs to others. Your crew was incredible- helped me and others to get chairs, were very attentive, funny and professional! Beautiful day and incredible islands- and if i had to recommend i would do it without hesitation Find solution for the seating arrangements. Thank you

Cool boat trip for a day. The boat was super full with people so at first you cant even get a place to sit outside. The Guide Athena was super funny and nice, she said what are the must do activities on each of the island and what to taste on lunch! The first island Hydra was amazing! Super nice and clean water! Would love to stay there longer. Other islands were just like quick stops. In Aegina You should take the tour to see the temple - Would suggest. I didn't take any other tours in other islands. The food was surprisingly good as I distant expected it - but the fish was super good!

It was a good full day. The staff from arriving to finishing were all friendly and helpful and informative. The islands were beautiful but the timings sometimes felt a bit rushed but it’s because it’s 3 islands in one day so there’s a lot to cram in, including the travel on the boat. It would have been nice if the bot had actually had WIFI. And on the app where I booked this this trip and on the emails after, it said we could download an audio guide for Hydra - when I asked the staff about this they said this was not true and so that needs changing on the app as it’s falsely advertised.
