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.

My favourite trip I've ever taken/done in Greece and on Get Your Guide. The hosts were just 10/10 making our day so much fun. The itinerary is great and you have the option to really do what you want as well. If you don't want to do the bike tour or walk to see ruins on the islands etc. You can chill at the beach, or walk at your leisure. I think 1.5 hours at each island was great for myself and my group. The food and drinks were AMAZING and for the entire day and experience the money is 1000% worth it. You can't get that same experience taking the fly dolphin ferries to the islands yourself. You would never find that swimming, food, and entertainment from the hosts anywhere else. Can't recommend this trip enough. I've already done this exact boat tour TWO times, and would probably go back again next year too.

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.
