  • There was always a skunky smell lingering around. I am pretty sure some crew were under drugs or something. No wonder they was so relaxed and carelss. I am not sure, but defo smelled like it. I didnt feel the crew made a positive contribution to this trip and food was just decent. I dont think the configuration of the boat should allows that many people at once. It did feel crowded. I did enjoy the stops and my time in the sun.
  • What a promising start we've had. Prompt taxi pickup, got on the boat, visualised the whole lot of people, and quickly realized it's going to be a fight to get a good spot on the deck. Before judging me that I should have went private, I don't have a pile of spare cash laying around to actually rent a whole boat for myself. We have managed in the end to find a spot, but just be prepared to not be so lucky and find one. I understand that people cannot say the whole day on the deck but there were people who preferred being under the sun the whole day and wouldn't move. They have also left towels to secure their spots while on the islands. So that was annoying. Other than that we've enjoyed all stops. Swimming in the ocean was great. Food selection was good, tasted authentic and actually better than what we've had in some taverns. Staff in nice, a slight improvement in their communication, mainly sharing more details regarding the stops would have been nice. Despite de seating issues, a nice day.
  • The captain and the crew were very nice. The lunch and refreshments were very good. my biggest disappointment was that the boat was too crowded to give any variety as to where you could sit. We sat on the bow in the sun for the first two hours, but since every spot on the boat, whether in the shade or the sun, was taken, there was no place to go when we needed some shade. This was also uncomfortable when the water was choppy and waves were breaking completely over the front of the boat and the people sitting on the deck had no place to go - they were completely drenched and many wanted to dry off but could not. My other disappointment was that The first inhabited island we went to had very little beach. By the time we walked and were able to find the last lounge chairs available, we had about 20 minutes before we had to return to the boat. There is also not enough time for the people who rented electric bikes to use and enjoy the little island. When we visited the uninhabited island, not everyone who wanted to swim was able to do so from the boat when it was anchored as going up and down the stairs on the side of the boat was too challenging for them. It would’ve been more enjoyable to visit only one inhabited island that had more beach and time to enjoy swimming.
  • Our guides were super hilarious and we all had so much fun. They gave us enough time to wonder the islands and were informative about each island we visited. The lunch they made was super delicious. The only downfall we had was there was not much space on the boat for the amount of people that were aboard.
  • The trip was pushed twice and finally canceled due to the weather. The customer service was very helpful though.
  • The crew was knowledgeable, professional and very kind. It was easy to communicate with them when we knew we were running a bit behind and they were willing to wait for us which we were extremely appreciative of. The food was delicious and the islands we stopped at were beautiful with enough time to explore and relax at the beaches.
  • Dissapointing, the crew was nice but not really engaging with the passangers. We visited two islands and the third one is just a stop for swimming near a small island. The worst part is that the boat was overcrowded and there was not enoght spots for everyone to sit comfortably. You have to be the first one on the boat to get decent seats. They said you can’t reserve the seats by leavin a towell, but most of the people that got good seats did just that and the crew doesn’t really care. The food was also not as advertised. Not worth it at all.
  • Highly recommended. Was a great quick way to see other islands and to get away from Athens heat. Very professional crew. We were well fed and had plenty to drink too. I went on my own and it was fine. You can be a loner or you can make new acquaintances.
  • Amazing experience, great food. Small private sailboat type. Only one issue, food tables and seating areas where dirty and oily and stained before the cruise even started, they should bring professional cleaners to really scrub the boat clean before the cruise starts. Other than that no complaints and would still recommend it.
  • Very nice trip! Loved the islands, swimming and lunch. The crew was great and made everyone feel welcome
  • Amazing day cruise, we had a great time along the day. The boat was furnished with pillows on which we laid all day long and cold beverages were available at any time. The staff was very friendly, we had enough time to stay on Agistri and Eagina islands (1h30 on each) as well as 1h diving and swimming at lunch time. I recommend this adventure, I will do it once again with pleasure if I have to go back to Athens.
  • We had a great time. The crew was very nice and attentive, the food was great. I would highly recommend it
  • The Crew were amazing and the bus pickup was on time and excellent but the boat was very slow it took us some time to reach the islands
  • The day cruise was a wonderful experience for us - a getaway from the bustle of Athens. The crew were very polite and helpful and the service was fine at lunchtime and generally from the bar. We lay back in the sun and took in the experience passing us by which was very interesting. The island stops gave a chance for wandering around the shops or swimming at the beach. There was also a stop where you could swim near the boat, which had dropped anchor in a bay. That was fantastic and we really enjoyed jumping into the water from the deck. The tour was a full day programme, but well worth it. I would thoroughly recommend it as a part of your Athens experience.
  • I enjoyed the trip! It was a good balance between time to explore and time on the boat. The crew was great. I would have liked to try a few more traditional Greek dishes and more fruit but the meal was filling and well-made.
  • Really lovely boat experience. So great to have pick up as we were staying in central Athens. Enjoyed a beautiful day on the water stopping at agistri, swimming and lunch on the boat, and then eating pistachios on aegina. Crew were very friendly and knowledgeable about where to go on the islands. Is a full day - pick up at 8am and we’re dropped off about 7pm
  • It was a wonderful day and fun addition to my short Athens trip. I would take this cruise again the next time I'm in Athens. It was great to spend a day on the water. We visited two islands where I did some shopping and enjoyed the beach. We also stopped for a refreshing swim in the ocean just in sight of a third island. The crew was polite and entertaining and the food and beer were great!
  • A great experience, staff on boat very friendly, beautiful locations and good food. Would have preferred some extra time on the islands
  • The ship was very accommodating, friendly, relaxing and the crew went above and beyond to make this a memorable trip! Would definitely recommend to any kind of travelers
  • My daughter (16) and I had a fantastic day. The crew were very friendly and the food and drinks on board were great. The islands we visited were beautiful and we loved swimming in the sea. The hotel pick up service was also brilliant.
  • Excellent trip, good amount of time at each island and for swimming in the ocean. Food was great and the staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend!
  • It was a nice experience. Aside from the lovely scenery on each island, we also met so many great people on the boat. I recommend this to everyone who will be visiting Greece.
  • Crew was super helpful in every aspect of the Cruise. Visited stops an expected. Our captain even help teach us how to do a back flip off of the boat. Everyone has a great time. Dinner was excellent and plentiful.
  • Top experience, excellent cruise crew. Really an unforgettable tour that I highly recommend. Food on board was also great and the drinks always available. Agritis is a paradise and the stop and swim in Mepoti were fun and beautiful.
