Full description
After a morning transfer by bus from Athens to the port, you’ll be welcomed on board a luxurious cruise ship and 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.

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.

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, you’ll find the tables set once again with more delicious food prepared by the ship’s superb chef. Along with your food enjoy charming Greek music on the way to 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 discover on your own. Alternatively, you can join an excursion to the Temple of Aphaia at an additional cost.

Enjoy a Greek folk show with singers and dancers in traditional costumes on the sail back to Athens.

the meeting point was unfortunately somewhere else than the pin that we received by email ... But when we found the ship, we were pleasantly surprised, because it is very large and also very clean ... The staff was really very very nice, everything went smoothly, and it wasn't overcrowded, so you got a place in the sun everywhere. This was probably also due to the fact that we were not there in the main season. you could move freely on the ship, even in the restaurant area. Even if you haven't eaten anything. There were waitresses everywhere that could have been addressed, but they weren't pushy at all and we could also bring our own food and drink and eat there, that wasn't a problem at all ... There was Greek music in between, which was nice . the prices on board for food and drink are unfortunately very high. the food at the buffet was completely sufficient and good.

It is the first time that we have come to Greece and the truth has seemed to us SPECRACULAR, the tour day has exceeded our expectations, the Incarnation that took us to the islands very well, the very professional, friendly staff, very willing to answer questions and what more important very but very enjoyable

We loved the island of Hydra, the friendly staff, and the delicious lunch. The island of Poros was underwhelming, with not much of interest to see. I think the time could be better spent on Hydra or the last island, Aegina. Aegina was lovely, but because we arrived on a Wednesday, many shops were closed.
