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.

Je vais vous dire pourquoi je vous donne un maximum d'étoiles : à cause de votre équipage à bord du navire Cosmos sur lequel nous naviguons un jour, et à cause des 3 îles incroyables !! Négatif : Le temps dans les ports est bien trop court ! Hydra c'est incroyable et c'est donc Poros et Égine mais il n'y a pas le temps de visiter, de profiter et de se détendre. Il y a aussi une partie dérangeante ; Le navire était plein à craquer (je comprends que vous avez une entreprise à gérer), mais vous devez vous assurer que tout le monde a un siège. Nous payons tous le même prix et non seulement trouver un siège était comme trouver Nemo, certains passagers incroyables gardaient des chaises pour leurs sacs pleins de Dieu sait quoi et devenaient verbalement agressifs lorsque l'équipage leur demandait de donner les chaises aux autres. Votre équipe était incroyable - m'a aidé, ainsi que d'autres, à obtenir des chaises, était très attentionné, drôle et professionnel! Belle
