Wonderful day to cruise; staff all very nice; great islands to visit, optional tours offered, great lunch and fun Greek music and dance shows. It's an early start, but you can get breakfast on board. Hotel pickup and return was on time and very easy. Thanks for a great day!

The island of Hydra was my favourite (the first one). The stop at Poros could be avoided, so that we could have more time in Hydra and Aegina. Aegina has the best pistachio products we ever tasted. The buffet on board is OK, but it's not a buffet because you don't serve yourself.. there is a guy serving you and you don't get the quantities you want. The food was almost cold and the fork / knife were plastic.. meaning that they break very easily. The entertainment in the boat is nice.

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.
