Easy to book with clear instructions regarding transfers and the tour. Excellent communication and reminders via email and WhatsApp right up until the day of the trip. The driver we met for our pick ups was there before time, spoke English well and drove very nicely. The crew were lovely and knew exactly what they were doing. The timings given for each destination was well thought out allowing one to enjoy each island with sound advice on what to do and where to go without having to rush or be swamped by crowds of people arriving from a cruise or on the ferry. The food provided was delicious and the swimming out at sea was fantastic. I would highly recommend and cannot wait to bring all my family members to enjoy this trip next year. Thank you.

It was an incredibly beautiful experience! The crew was very nice, lunch was a real fresh buffet and there was nice music playing all the time! It was a bit short on the first island and a bit too long on the last one for my taste, but overall a very nice experience!

Nice cruise overall. The crew was welcoming and took care of us. Fresh drinks, breakfast, snacks and homemade lunch are included and the later was honestly good. Agistri is not super interesting, but you can still take refreshing bath on the beach. Aegina was way better to visit, we had free time to visit a small village with small shops, really nice overall. We also stopped between the two islands for a swim, the place was beautiful. We could jump from the boat, and the crew provided some goggles, it was funny. Also, the boat was a bit crowded, everyone has a seat of course but if you want to get away from the sun, you may have to go into the cabin as other people would keep their place under the arbor on the roof, which is not a great value for the money spent. It is a nice experience, but not necessarily a must have.
