What people are saying about Piraeus

Lovely day trip from Athens. We had the hotel pick up and drop off which was useful (arranged last minute as well, so appreciated the help!) The boat is beautiful, enough room to move around and also sunbathe on deck. Crew were more than helpful, including getting us drinks where possible (though it is self serve) and keeping an eye on us at the swim stop. Both islands were beautiful, the bike tour on Agistri was well worth it. On Aegina we got some ice cream and then walked to a quieter (and better) beach behind the temple. Overall wonderful tour and would recommend if you only have a few days in Athens and want to get some sun and sea!

The boat cruise was fun. There was drinks and we got a delicious buffet meal. We spent a little time on the islands. The staff was kid and accommodating. I would highly recommend if you are looking for something to do in Athens.

The trip was wonderful. Crew was great. The only thing I didn’t like was transfer picked us up late. By the time we had gotten to boat all good seats were taken. The lunch was delicious as well.

A great day out! The crew were amazing, food was incredible and there were some truly breathtaking sights! Highly recommend it

We had a fantastic day trip. The service provided by Sam and the rest of the crew was excellent. The lunch was also very good.
