What people are saying about Aegina

We didn’t get the transportation, others on our trip took taxis, we took the metro, both options are cheaper. I recommend the sunbathing places at the front, we found it comfier, easy to relax, and easier to chat to the people around us. On the ride out we had mini pastries which tasted great. The ride out to the first island is around two hours so we got to lie back and relax. When near the island Agistri the crew explained all the options and gave us information. On returning to the boat we went for the swimming stop, it was amazing! Then we had lunch cooked by the chef, omg so tasty. Next was the island Aegina, (pistachio island) would highly recommend going with the crew to the food stand to try the pistachio themed food! On the ride back we enjoyed lots of drinks. Only downside was how overly flirty the crew were, one kept taking my fork at lunch and trying to feed me, I was uncomfortable.

Fully organised and super program for everyone! The boarding was such a fun already, they welcoming us with music. The view was amazing and breathless. The crew was nice and always informed us with the necessary information. They also performed a folklore show. I definitely recommend it!

I truly recommend this tour. The staff were very friendly, provided excellent suggestions on what to do on the islands and were always happy to help. The pastries that were served for breakfast and the lunch were delicious.

Absolutely fabulous!! Book this tour, the food, the music, the crew were all wonderful!! We had so much fun, also book the drop-off and pick-up!! It’s worth the extra money!!

Great day trip for the family and a welcome break for them from ancient ruins. Walking, bike riding, swimming in the sea and pistachio gelato to finish the day.
