What a fun tour! We did so much and saw a lot, like with anything else, I wish we had more time! The only critique I have is to have more signs to tell people where to go and what the plan is. I found the English speaking information on accident just walking around, I would have otherwise missed it.

The islands visited were great. The food and food service for lunch was very poor. Long queues and they were running out of food where people had to stand around waiting. After paying 143 euro for the island visit. 22 per person for a walking tour was a bit much never mind the price of the bus trip on the island

This trip is a must do for anyone wanting to experience more of Greece! The staff and crew were very helpful and kind! We decided not to do any of the excursions and had a great time exploring the islands. We regretted not doing the tour in Aegina, but still had a great time! Hydra had a wonderful historical museum for anyone interested in learning more about the island. Poros had the most beautiful views up by the clock tower, but it was a bit of a walk so be prepared. Aegina had some great historical sites and some decent beaches, but the best part was the pistachio gelato! Lunch on the boat was good and well organized, but definitely get back to the boat a bit ahead of time to find a good table. Seating overall was a little tight, but the staff had lots of extra chairs for anyone to grab. Best to bring a sweater or blanket as it can get a bit chilly while in the shade on the boat, but also have the sunscreen on hand for the islands. Overall one of the best parts of our trip!
