  • This cruise was very well done. They communicate well and were very efficient. The provided meal was good and we greatly appreciated the ability to buy snacks and drinks along the way. The staff was attentive, friendly and did a great job. There are three floors you can choose to sit on. The top floor being uncovered. The entire excursion went from 7:30 am-7:45 pm. The dance party on the way back was super fun and a great way to end the excursion. All of the islands were beautiful but Hydra, was a dream come true.
  • Great way to kill an extra day in Athens. Hydra was exactly what you would image what a small Greek fishing village would be. The provided lunch was very good.
  • The islands themselves are absolutely stunning! However, overall the cruise left a lot to be desired. First, they try to sell you on a VIP upgrade. Then, they try to sell you on buying excursions for each island. Which ok, I guess I can see that and maybe people are interested... but the biggest drawback was the food. It was absolutely HORRIBLE. I have a two year-old that can live off rice and potatoes. He took one bite of the rice and refused to eat anything. I think nothing of it until I also take a bite. I almost lost it (who the hell messes up rice?!). Then I think ok, well at least there's potatoes... uh unh. They tasted as if they'd been cooked in fish water. Dear God... Be aware for some odd reason an "included" lunch doesn't include drinks (I'm talking soft drinks here); and be prepared to pay 5 euros for a cup of coffee
  • It is a good tour, but the explanation should be more detailed. From the 10 hours you only spend around 4 of them in the islands, all the others on the boat. Also the extra tours on the island have extra cost. Other than that everything ok.
  • A very long but wonderful trip! The servers and staff on board were all AMAZING!! Our favorite server was Bobby who treated us with so much care and was so sweet. The food on board served for lunch, complimentary, was delicious and offered a wide variety of food. There were charging ports available as well. I do wish there was more time on the islands instead of on the boat, but I cannot complain about a boat ride with a great view. Contact via KeyTours was responsive, but did not communicate a time change until the morning of the tour at 5 AM. As we did not see this, we missed our ship's departure, but were able to go the next day and they were very great about handling it. Overall, I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to see three beautiful islands of Greece in one day!
  • Baffled that the tour didn't go to Hydra at all. We spent most of the morning going to Agristi for an 80 min stop, where virtually everything apart from one hotel and a bakery was closed. Then when the logical thing would be to go to Aegina a few mins across the bay, we set sail to Poros. a long trip for a shortish stop and then all the way back to Aegina where the time was adequate. No information about why we didn't go to Hydra which is where I wanted to go specifically to do the walking tour provided by Keytours. Keytours were prompt and efficient. I feel very let down and ripped off by the cruise company.
  • Lunch was great! Staff were pleasant Internet available Boat was very comfortable It was very unfortunate that all 3 islands were basically closed up due to the time of year! We did not know this!!!!! Even the last bigger port only had the front street open almost all restaurants. We were taken to 1 Island that had absolutely nothing😡 and left there for 1 hour Overall very disappointing
  • We visited Athens in the last week of February and booked this tour. We were quite excited but it turned out that the tour got cancelled. Good part, we got full refund. Bad part, we weren’t informed till the last moment i.e., we were informed at the time we were supposed to be picked up at 6:45am early morning. Could be a good one if you visit during the peak summer season, less chances of cancellation.
  • The tour operator (Keytours) showed up late at the pickup to notify us that the tour had been canceled due to technical difficulties. She apologized but did absolutely nothing to help us to cancel, or find another activity for the day, our last day in Athens.
  • Hummm the dissatisfaction after realizing we didn’t have a tour guide. Miss communication or lack off full disclosure.
  • It was a great trip but we didn’t see all 3 islands due to weather conditions. We were promised 3 islands, sad that they did not live up to that. But it was a great tour, I’d recommend. PS: You have to pay an extra €46/€39 to get a guide in 2 of the islands (Hydra and Aegina). I didn’t know that before. I’d say the tour of Aegina was worth the money, I could have done without the one at Hydra
  • Service was excellent on board. The prices for beverages on the cruise were high. Hydra was amazing. We didn't get proper communication on the exact location of the cruise. You may want to improve that.
  • It was a really nice experience. Hydra was the most beautiful island. The lunch was enough and really taste it. The staff was kindly
  • We spent amazing time in the sea. And food was delicious, the three islands were nice as well. I would like also to thank all the staff for their special service.
  • Islands were beautiful but it was a long day. Thought the optional tours were expensive and if you took them no time to walk around the shops where we docked. Glad we passed on them.
  • The islands are beautiful so it was worth it to see them. The onboard buffet lunch was inedible; the temperature of the fish was the same as the salad and we were among the first in line. And we were not provided the amount of time stated at any of the islands-it was always less than advertised and was very rushed.
  • Organised and structured well, timely and efficient. Food and guided tours subpar and mediocre - not worth the money at all.
  • The trip was canceled. Would have gone otherwise. So not a great experience.. Don’t have anything else to say.
  • The islands were beautiful and the cruise staff amazing. We had a very relaxing day with perfect weather.
  • Beautiful landscape from the ship. The food on the ship was just ok! The crew was great. Please don’t buy the excursions! Not worth the money
  • The company didn’t give us a pickup time and so we missed the tour . Viator wouldn’t give me a refund . I will never book with them again .
  • The cruise was great amd the service in VIP was amazing. The bus tour was below expectations on Aegina.
  • Hydra was especially beautiful to walk around as was seeing the sunset at Temple of Aphaia on Aigina (this was an additional paid for excursion but worth doing). It ended up being a pretty long day overall (725am hotel pick up and 8pm drop off) and a bit pricey but worth doing especially if you are tight on time in Athens. Good solo traveller excursion. The staff were all incredibly friendly and the music and dancing show at the end was fun.
  • This was just the most amazing trip. A lot of touring Athens is sitting on coaches but island hopping on a beautiful boat with the sun shining was perfect. Our tour guide was fantastic and it was so well organised. Definitely worth booking!
