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 !!!!

The Islands are really gorgeous--particularly Hydra. The time was adequate for a quick trip up to the tower in Poros and a few photos on the way down. In Aegina we did not opt for the bus tour, and there is really not much else to do, which is a pity. We took a quick swim. The boat was pleasant, though rather crowded. Lunch was okay.
