  • The islands were very quaint and fun to visit. You see a lot in one day on this excursion. The VIP option made the trip much more comfortable.
  • Experiencing some of the outer islands was nice. Although very commercialized the back streets are very quaint with cobble stones and donkeys. All have beautiful scenic harbors. The boat ride it’s self was pleasant. The staff was also pleasant and efficient. A nice change to a busy Athens day !
  • Had a wonderful time. Everyone onboard was very friendly and professional. We were very happy with the service and the ladies in the VIP lounge were fantastic.
  • The only island wr really enjoyed visiting was the Hydra. It is more about the cruise than the islands
  • Cruise itself was excellent. Staff was extremely friendly and more than eager to make our experience as enjoyable as possible. Hydra and Aegina in particular were well worth the visit, though our time on the islands was limited. Poros was by far the least interesting of all the islands, but still a beautiful place to experience. Food and drink options were better than expected. Definitely would strongly recommend the VIP and hotel transport upgrade, HOWEVER, please be leery of any communication with Chat Tours. The driver gave us the wrong pickup instructions for our return transportation, and this wasn’t communicated to us by the cruise ship team. Then he pretended to not recognize us upon return and was unhelpful and rude. Just unacceptable behavior. Otherwise we would have given a 5-star rating.
  • On time pick up from hotel in the morning. Food and service in VIP area was good and loved that we were able to be the first off the boat at each stop to have the most time at each location as well as first to be able to get off and catch our ride home. Tours on Aegina are a little pricey for what they are but it was fun to wander the temple and try the pistachio ice cream on the cultural tour option. Would have liked more time to wander around Hydra
  • The VIP option for the tour was amazing! We had a private air conditioned area with endless drinks. The service was amazing! I had a love seat with pillows all to myself in a space that was quiet. I had the option to join the loud party when I wanted to. The VIP first off the boat was definitely worth it. I really enjoyed seeing the 3 islands . Most of the time is spent on the boat so having the private lunch with pick up, a tour, and everything included was perfect. Bring a jacket as there are winds in the sea. They do not sell jackets in the on board store.
  • Disgraceful, the bus was late and the rep who collected us from pick up point disappeared once we got to the port, there was no co ordination at all and we were left like 3rd rate passengers
  • Very islands and nice crew team Comfortable ship Food below expectations The necessary information of the excursion was sent day before departure after several calls
  • Themis and George made the trip exceptional with all the historical information and answering all our questions. The van was clean and comfortable and made sure we were well watered. They were happy to wait for us should we take a bit longer.
  • Excellent VIP experience, totally recomend upgrading to VIP. Private room, with A/C, comfortable couches and unlimited sof drinks. Main cabin is crowded and must pay extra. Private deck too Islands are gorgeous, yet in Poros you feel time is too short In Aegyna they put up finger food and it’s scarse for the amount of people in the cruise., Awesome confort of the ship, crew attentive at all times
  • Scenic fun and relaxing. Learned about the Ancient Greek history and how they fought to preserve and improve their culture.
  • Good experience but the weather did not cooperate. Hydra and Aegina were very nice. Only had 30 minutes in Poros - nice but too short of a visit. Did VIP option - nice private room, really great service but food was disappointing. It is a very long day - basically 8 AM to 8 PM.
  • Great day! Definitely worth the VIP upgrade - Katarina and her team were so attentive. Hydra was the highlight for us.
  • We would strongly recommend the Hydra, Poros and Aegina Day Cruise from Athens. As there is quite a distance to the first island of Hydra, the journey out was very comfortable with adequate seating on the boat "Cosmos". We had time to explore the port area of Hydra before boarding for our next stop, Poros. A short stop in Poros was enough to get a taste of this lovely island. The last stop of the day was the closest island to Athens and during the journey we were entertained by Greek dancers. We chose to do an optional tour on Aegina which was the Panoramic Coach Tour which was a tour of the island and a visit to a monastery. A great choice. It was a 12 hour day but worth every minute.
  • The three islands were wonderful. A great way to see a lot in a single day. The ship was a bit dated and rough at the edges. The VIP lounge hospitality was very friendly but the lounge facility was in need of a major upgrade.
  • The service provided to us was fantastic. Katarina was very helpful and kept us updated all day. We felt very important throughout the day
  • Thank you for the good service. Extra thanks to Kostas and Vasilis making my trip something to remember. Good guided tour, peaceful environment in VIP lounge. Perfect pick-up service. Rehardsy Carita Lindeman
  • This was a fun way to see several islands in one day. The VIP experience was worth the extra with first on and first off the boat and one included excursion. The VIP lounge was relaxing and the staff was great. My only negative was that I wished I new more about the excursions in advance and planned ahead. The swimming excursion would have been fun.
  • Opt for the VIP package! Otherwise, you may find yourself above deck without a seat for a very long day at shore. My family and I read the reviews and acted on it by choosing the VIP package and were very grateful for the comfortable lounge and complimentary drinks. You also get off the ship at the islands first, and since you have very little time on each island, this helps! Definitely eat breakfast first- there’s nothing provided until around 1pm for lunch. Costas was amazingly gracious and helpful, and gave great advise to climb the clock tower at Poros. Overall, a beautiful day with glimpses of Hydra (eat something there!), Poros (you only have about an hour here!) and Aegina (bring your swimsuit! You can pay 20 euro for a ride to a beach to swim in the Aegean Sea). There is a show on the way back to port, but it’s up on deck and you’ll probably have to stand. It’s a long day, but a good day.
  • The scenery,the culture, the food and the people. A highlight was the absolutely wonderful young waiter, Spiros. A gem and a great example to other young people. His service was second to none. A definite highlight. The organisation was great and all in all a great day out. Highly recommended.
  • I booked This spur-of-the-moment trip as I loved the previous day's trip. I also upgraded myself to the VIP experience. I was not disappointed. Private taxi transfer from the hotel, and then greeted at the dock by our own "Butler" We were led abroad and had Photos taken with local Greek dancers, then escorted to our private lounge area where Yannis was our private barman for the day. We had unlimited soft and hot drinks all day, A small snack at 10 am with Ouzo. Lunch was delicious. Included in the VIP experience was a free trip. I took the coach trip around Aegina as my little feet needed a rest. It was quick but delightful. The stop at Saint Nectarious Monastery was astounding and so beautiful. I love seeing all the Pistachio trees for which this island is famous. Hydra and Poros were little havens of richness, so idyllic and inviting. I 100% recommend it, even without the VIP experience.
  • My wife and I took this trip and had a wonderful time. The crew were fantastic, especially Nicos, and his assistant. We also met a couple of very friendly fellow travelers. I wished they did a better job with the food.
  • The beauty of the sea and islands! It was a relaxing day at sea! I enjoyed it! I can’t think of anything else to say. It keeps telling me to say more
