Full description

Explore the Saronic Islands of Poros, Hydra, and Aegina on this day trip from Athens. Cruise over the azure waters of the Mediterranean sea and have free time on each island. Savor a mouth-watering buffet lunch and enjoy an app-based audio tour of the island of Hydra.

After a morning transfer by bus from Athens to the port, hop on board a cruise ship and be invited to one of its spacious open decks. From the deck, you’ll have a great vantage point for enjoying views of the Greek coast. An app-based audio tour is also included in your trip. The first stop is the island of Poros, the smallest of the 3 islands you’ll visit on the tour. It’s separated from the Peloponnese by a narrow strait. Have ample time to explore the island and once you’re on board again you’ll be served a delicious lunch as the ship sail towards Hydra. Take in the stunning views as you enter the port of Hydra and see the cove that at one time served as a shelter for pirates. From the open decks, marvel at the dramatic landscapes of this island.

As an added perk, download the mobile app (instructions found on your confirmation voucher), put on your headphones, and listen as licensed guides and experts on storytelling present you with original stories and historical information about the area.

There will be time for you to explore the narrow, stone-paved streets of the island on foot, or by saddled donkey, which is the traditional mode of transportation. If you choose to go by foot, you can walk along the old seaside promenade and perhaps stop at some of the small shops. When you return to the ship, the captain heads for Aegina which is the largest of the 3 islands on the tour. Apart from its beautiful harbor, there are numerous interesting sites that you’ll have a chance to discover on your own. Alternatively, you can join an excursion to the Temple of Aphaia at an additional cost. Return to your cruise-boat and enjoy your one-hour sail back to the port. Disembark and finish your trip (if option selected) in Athens.

Getting on the boat was fun and in excellent condition. We immediately had directions for the rest of the day. We stopped first on the island of Hydra, then Poros and lastly Aegina, although in the description it is not in that order. Undoubtedly the most beautiful and interesting island is Hydra and it's a shame we only have 1h on the island. He dispensed with the island of Poros and stayed longer on the island of Hydra. Lunch was good and on the return trip we were surprised by some traditional Greek dances which was fun.

The visits to Poros and Hydra were awesome. In particular Poros which is a beautiful island. Moreover, the last island, Aegina, is extremely disappointing. The city is not beautiful and when you try to visit to discover the history of Greece, everything is closed. There was nothing to do, nothing to see. It's a big disappointment. In addition, the time on the islands is poorly distributed. We spent only 50 minutes on Poros for 1h30 on Aegina while Poros was by far the most interesting… The activity is interesting and pleasant but there are still a few modifications to be made to enjoy the islands 100% and not be disappointed on the end…

Warm welcome, pleasant and attentive staff… Proposals for excursions on the islands (by bus) which is a little extra if you want to have time to visit what is not accessible on foot… Small problem for the meal which is not necessarily a typical Greek buffet but which is still good.
