Great trip! Plenty of time to explore and always knew where we needed to be and when.

The cruise was good, but the ship was too crowded. The stops at each of the Islands was enough time to get a feel for the port area and do a little shopping, but more time would have been great. The lunch on the ship was good. The best stop was Aegina, and the tour offered on the ship to the Temple of Aphaia and the Monastery/church was excellent

This tour was a very long day but very good. The pick up arrived on time, the cruise, on-board food, entertainment was very good. Beautiful islands. Only suggestion is that they should increase the time on Aegina and reduce it on Hydra/ Poros which are smaller.

The timing is just nice for each destination of the 3 islands. The 3 islands are beautiful. The Cruise is big and nice. Lunch on the cruise is yummy and good too, which we were quite surprised on it. There is entertainment as well when we returned back to Athens. Well planned and we enjoyed ourselves there! :D

I really enjoyed this tour. The time on the islands were very short. I feel that we could have spent more time on two islands instead of rushing to three. Hydra and Aegina were great to see and walk around or do things on. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They kept us entertained. The weather was amazing which made the cruise amazing. I also enjoyed the food and the amount that was served.

Dear Mr. Shilo,

Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We really appreciate it. The one day cruise is a very popular product as it allows people with limited time to get at least a bird's view of a handful of islands. Your description is very accurate in both its pros and cons!

We thank you once more and remain at your disposal!
