An AMAZING boat trip! Me and my friend (18&20) did this for a whole day and it was the highlight of our greece trip. We paid extra for the pick up and it was so worth it as they pick u up and drop off as well. All the staff at the boat is extremely helpful. Unlimited coffee, drinks & water ! Delicious bread for breakfast. There’s also free luggage storage & free wifi on the boat !! Anytime the staff saw me with two or even one drink ( I sat at the top) they would take it for me. A delicious lunch prepared by the chef ( greek food) everything was soooo good. Many activites at island stops. First one you could do a bike tour or swim. Second island there was so much more even to do! Sam is super helpful on giving recommendations! I really enjoyed this boat trip and would recommend to anyone in Athens who wants to do a day trip! Would do it again :) so worth the money

The tour is a must if you have a passion for the ancient ruins of Greece and Greek mythological myths. Visiting the site was magical with an incredible view of the valleys and mountains. We did the tour towards the end of June and it was very hot. So definitely bring sunscreen and water, however, despite the heat, it is still very worth the trip. Demitrius was a wonderful tour guide who made the trip to Delphi insightful, fun and engaging. Would highly recommend for someone who enjoys exploring.

This was a great experience. The crew and the chef were lovely. The sail and the islands and beaches were beautiful. The only downside (nothing to do with the boat or crew) was the bus ride from Athens. The driver got lost going to the port. He stopped at least 5 times to ask directions and at one point did a very tricky 6 point u-turn on a steep hill in Piraeus. We had quite the crowd watching us!!! Although we arrived about an hour late, we still had the same amount of time for our cruise.

Zita (guide) and Kennedy (driver) were wonderful during the trip - personable, knowledgeable, and just fun to be around. We learned so much on this excursion! Delphi and the gorgeous surrounding mountains were phenomenal and steeped in interesting history. Thanks for making the trip enjoyable for me and my daughter!

Amazing day, great service, great food!!! Sam and Hasan made our day. Captain and the chef were extremely nice too! Thank you we will be back
