What people are saying about Saronic Islands

Absolutely fantastic experience, from start to finish. Super nice and helpful crew, who ensure that everyone has a good time there. Agistri is a super beautiful island, I can definitely recommend renting bikes, otherwise you will hardly be able to see a bit of the island and swim. Swimming at Moni and subsequent lunch is fantastic. Aegina just as wonderful with lots of pistachio tastings. A fantastic boat trip, and an experience that can definitely be recommended. Thanks to the crew for making the day unforgettable.

It was a very nice day. Pick up at the hotel was easy and well organized. They were on time . The three islands were great to see . I did the walking tour in Hydra and the panoramic tour in Aegina.. both recommended as you get to hear the history of the islands and not just walk aimlessly in souvenir shops to kill time. There was also free time. It was a long day but definitely worth it. The staff were very nice and eager to please. It was a nice change from all the Greek classics and a lovely day at sea

Was very enjoyable! Highlight of our trip. Lots of friendly people from all over. The crew was wonderful. Very helpful and accommodating. The island visits were a little short, but still great to see and enjoy. The swimming was so fun! It was awesome to jump off the boat and have fun in the water! Would highly recommend!

This was an amazing experience and I had so much fun! Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious and the drinks were unlimited! I would do this again the next time I’m in Athens!! Highly Recommend!!!

Very nice, well organised, good food, good companionship. Maybe a little less Ed Sheeran :).
