  • Highly recommend for a day trip on the water visiting islands, especially if your trip to athens is short. I went as a solo traveller, a smaller boat in comparison to the ferry's which gave you opportunity to meet people and enjoy your time. The boat isn't crowded and the trip itself was very easy - time flies. Food was great, staff were so kind and accommodating. Would recommend getting the transfers as it takes away any stresses of the day. Remember to bring your swim stuff to swim on the islands or when the boat docks and you can jump off and enjoy the sea. Glad I took the chance on this excursion, zero regrets and only have positive things to say. Highly recommend.
  • Ι liked a lot the help of the crew,they were very friendly and willing to help us all the time!The boat was very clean and the lunch was great!Thank you for everything!!!We will be back :)
  • A great day on the sea on a charming boat with good service and food. We had time to look around on the islands for our own. The trip itself and the views are really nice of course.
  • A nice way to visit 3 islands. People are helpful. Food excellent.!!!! Amazing experience Nice sea Nice view
  • Beautiful wooden boat. Very nice and polite people. Excellent food vegan too! Opportunity to spend a very relaxing day at the sea.
  • Great service throughout, brilliant day - was the highlight of our trip! They prepared us a plate of vegan food specially which was really nice.
  • Awesome fun day. Everyone on board was great and helpful especially with the swimming experience. The food was exceptionally good.
  • The most flawlessly executed trip. Amazing food views and fun. Best 120 dollars I’ve ever spent. Me and my friend had a fishing trip planned that canceled last minute so we ended up booking this. I was more than surprised to see how organized this cruise was. It is a must do in Athens i will suggest it to anyone I know coming to town. Staff and captain very friendly.
  • We weren't very lucky. The boat broke down and unfortunately for us the organisation was awful and we've waste so much time waiting around without any information from them. We ended up going back with the ferry. We understand things happen but surely there is some sort of technical review for the boat and things just don't take you by surprise especially at the start of the season.
  • We had the most amazing time on the cruise! Lovely lunch, awesome gear to go under water! It was a memorable expierence. Just awesome people and good vibes!
  • A bit misleading. It is a sailing boat but runs on the engine...I was so excited to see and experience the whole thing with the sails, the wind and the waves and to my biggest disappointment that never happened. Apart of that, the islands are nice, food is ok and staff is alright if you're not looking for engagement from them. Again, I only booked this trip for the sailing experience and the fact that the food was serves and some islands to be seen made me go with it. Loking back there were far better options for me.
  • They took us to Athens with ferry. The boat did not work in Egina. Not happy sir with this. We pay for boat not ferry.
  • Their hospitality approach hugely let them down. The boat suffered a technical malfunction of some kind and we've been transferred back with a ferry. This only takes further away from the rating. We weren't welcome on the boat with much enthusiasm and during the trip the engagement from the staff wasn't so great either. We pictured a chilled relaxing day on the sea and in the end it was rather stressful towards the end. Surely not their best day.
  • Awesome, from the pickup from hotel too the boat cruise. Food was excellent and the crew was most accommodating. Highly recommend...
  • Absolutely fabbergasted with this lot! We were left waiting outside as the crew couldn't be bothered to lower the ladder or didn't wanna be disturbed by us prior to return to the boat time. We've tried to get their attention unsuccessfully for over half an hour. What a waste of our time that was... To add to our disappointment, there was no real engagement or communication from them during the whole trip. Not impressed at all!
  • From the beginning to the end the trip was awesome. Pick-up was on-time. The welcome was warm with a nice coffee and something to eat. The crew was also very friendly! We really enjoyed the 2 beautiful islands and the lunch/swimming break on the way. Good music and some cold beers under the Greek sun! We enjoyed it so much, we booked the same boat trip for the next day. Thank you very much!
  • Such a great day. Jimmy and his crew were great hosts. The food was delicious, the beer flowing and great fun was had. Some people even went again the next day- I can see why! Highly recommend and worth every penny.
  • Islands were nice but the trip was made by the on-boat experience and the lovely staff on board! So many small things really made the trip great. Wouldn't normally do this sort of trip but would recommend to anyone!
  • We like the cruise and the 3 islands . The cook help us a lot and fullfilled all our requests Ireni took care of us from booking , during the cruise and also book us a taxi back to Athen.
  • I booked this last minute around 10pm at night and someone immediately got to me about picking me up in the morning. The trip was fantastic! I went by myself since I was solo traveling, but ended up meeting a bunch of nice girls and a couple guys from the USAF that really made the trip exceptional. It was a tad chilly in the morning so if you go in May, bring a jacket or towel to wrap up in. The water is also freezing but people will jump in! The morning drinks and snacks were good and the lunch was delicious! Cheers to the chef for cooking and the captain that got us around safely. I ended taking a much larger boat the next day, but this tour/boat was my favorite between the two. It was fun and relaxing :) 12/10 recommend
  • The trip was great!!! The staff were all welcoming and fun. Food was really good and beer was cold! I had such an amazing time swimming around the boat - everyone was laughing and it just felt like being a kid again (I’m 44). I would 100% recommend this to a one wanting a day away from the city for some fun island hopping and sunshine.
  • Really lovely trip, very friendly attentive crew, food was tasty. Guests were a mix of different nationalities and it was great to have a chat and a drink with them.
  • A lovely trip to the islands, great food and drink and friendly crew who made us very welcome. Would definately recommend this boat trip.
  • We were picked up from our hotel around 8.20am to start at 9am.Crew members were fantastic. Enough refreshments were served during the day including unlimited tea, coffee, cakes and fruits etc. Lunch was served at 1pm and it was really good. We got the chance to mingle with other people on the boat and it was really a great experience. In terms of activities, boat stopped on different islands for us to roam around and shop. We stopped at some amazing islands where you can hire motor bikes and bicycle etc. Also, you can shop some of the best pistachio items including liquor 😀 During the lunch, boat stopped at one place where we were allowed to swim in the ocean for about an hour. It was one of the best experience I have ever had. Unforgettable experience. Thank you!!
