Itinerary
After pickup in central Athens or your Athens hotel by air-conditioned coach, head for Piraeus port.

Relax as you cruise to Poros, taking time on route to either sign up for tours on Egina (Aegina) or Hydra (both own expense) or decide to explore independently. If you’ve upgraded, enjoy extra-comfortable transportation, private check-in, VIP lounges in port and onboard, a welcome drink, buffet lunch in a VIP dining room, Wi-Fi, and access to the ship’s sun deck.

At Poros, get free time to enjoy the tavernas, shops, and other attractions. After lunch on board, cruise to Hydra and Egina. Dock at each island to stroll and shop independently, or take the optional Hydra walking tour or Egina bus tour (both at your own expense) to the classical Temple of Aphaia.

Finally, enjoy an onboard folklore show as you cruise back to Athens for drop-off at your departure point.

Great day out

The boat trip was incredible. All three island were picturesque but our favourite island was Hydra. The port was idyllic and the donkey were perfectly at home by the port.

Spend your time and money on something else

I visited in the busy season so my rating reflects that. Also I get Greece isn’t in a great economic state. First they over book and it’s extremely hard to get a seat where you are not frying in the sun. Due to the overbooking;...More
