Crociera di una giornata a Hydra, Poros ed Egina da Atene con opzione avanzata VIP
Quando si arriva a Poros, la più piccola delle tre isole, si ha 1 ora di tempo libero per passeggiare su questa invitante isola. Qui, visita a tue spese Trinzia, il cantiere navale russo di Poros, e scopri cosa avvenne durante la collaborazione della Grecia con l'esercito russo nei secoli XVIII e XIX. In alternativa, fai una passeggiata nella foresta di limoni (Lemonodassos), e ammira i graziosi mulini a vento e le cascate, mentre cammini in mezzo agli alberi di limoni e aranci.
Al ritorno sulla nave, potrai gustare il pranzo (ottimi posti a sedere) sedendo comodamente nella sala e ammirando il panorama del mare Mediterraneo durante il tragitto di circa 1 ora verso Idra. Entriamo nel porto di Idra, la cui forma ad anfiteatro serviva un tempo come rifugio sicuro per i pirati saronici. Situata vicino all'isola di Spetses, Idra è conosciuta soprattutto per la sua piccola e colorata capitale, piena di pittoreschi e stretti vicoli, affascinanti case con le piastrelle rosse e dimore silenziose, testimoni di una lunga e turbolenta storia. La guida ti indicherà i migliori negozi e caffè e potrai poi esplorare autonomamente la zona per circa 1 ora.
Quando si torna a bordo, i tavoli saranno apparecchiati per il secondo turno di pranzo. Dopo aver consumato il pranzo, ci si rilasserà sulla terrazza della nave e godendosi la brezza calda e navigando verso l'ultima fermata, l'isola più grande di Egina. Quando si arriva, è possibile partecipare a una visita del Tempio di Aphaia (a proprie spese) o passeggiare per la città principale a piacere. Conosciuta anche come Porto di Egina, l'isola è un luogo vivace con traghetti, catamarani e delfini volanti che spuntano intorno al porto. Goditi il panorama o rilassati in una delle ouzerie o caffetterie più famose della città.
Il viaggio di ritorno a Marina Flisvos dura circa un'ora e mezza. Goditi lo spettacolo con cantanti e ballerini che ti intratterranno facendoti divertire fino al momento finale, mentre la nave approda ad Atene. All'arrivo, sarai trasferito (se l'opzione è stata selezionata) a breve distanza dal centro di Atene, dove termina il tuo tour.

All 3 islands are beautiful and worth visiting. However, this tour is offered by Chat Tours and this company is just ok. They gave no description about each island and what they were known for or what was worth exploring on the islands. Food was ok. Boat is super slow which is why it takes about 11 to 12 hrs for whole tour which is not necessary. wish they had faster boats
We liked this trip. We read the reviews ahead of time and saw the complaints about time spent on each island so we knew the stops were brief and that was not a problem for us. The trip is already 11 hours long so making the island stops longer just lengthens the day and this could be an option, starting at 7:00 instead of 8:00. Our goal was simple, we wanted to get a sense of each island with the idea of returning in the future for a 2-3 day stay, and we accomplished that goal. On board the sun was nice most of the day, take sunscreen if you insist on sitting on deck! The ocean breeze was wonderful morning and afternoon but got cold on our way back to Athens so take along a sweater too. I read comments good and bad about lunch, but we found it good, plentiful, with varied choices. I will agree with the other 27 reviews that complained that you had to pay for water to drink. Pay for beer, of course, pay for soft drinks, stingy but okay. Pay for water, totally unacceptable. And they had warnings on their menus that Greek law prohibits bringing food or drink aboard ship. The crew was very nice, particularly the Filipino guy in the galley. There was some mention of traditional folklore dances on board but the entertainment space was tiny and the Audience space cramped so we just stayed away from it and enjoyed the cruise back. In summary, we enjoyed the cruise, we accomplished what we set out to do, we liked each island and we liked the food. The time announced for each island is a bit deceptive because it also takes time to get off and then to get back on. We were told 40 minutes on Poros but in fact we had just 30. We don’t need to do this trip again, but we would recommend it to others with the similar goal of visiting 3 islands in one day.
This was a great trip, showing the highlights of each of the three islands. I highly recommend purchasing the tours of the islands that they offer onboard the cruise.
The pick up and drop off was nice. The VIP lounge was dark, dirty and needs updating. Food was average not special wanted true Greek food Staff was ok
I really enjoyed it, wouldn't buy it again but no regrets as it was just a one day tour. Not too much to see on the islands except for Aegina. Hydra didn't meet my expectations, but both, Poros and Aegina are beautiful.
We thought this would be a great way to see three islands, and thought it was a bit expensive but i am sure it was worth it. Well it wasn't. Our transfer was late (20mins) and was one of the last group on the boat... no seats available so we sat on a box downstairs near the ramp for the boat.... Now was 3hrs of an uncomfortable ride to Hydra. Because we were downstairs near the exit, 20mins into Hydra everyone queues squashes in (and invades your personal space). My advice is to get to the ship early to get onboard to get a seat for the first leg (longest) or just get a normal ferry. Hydra was an amazing island, and we only had 1.5hrs there, barely enough to explore. Wish we just stayed there and caught a very back. Poros was 45mins - very quick, not as pretty as Hydra, could of spent more time there. Egina was good, enjoyed that, only 1.2hrs there. Lunch was a a Buffet with no drinks included, pretty standard cuisine but enjoyed the green beans. After lunch we could not find a seat and was stuck on the bottom of the ship on a box again. For $364 AUD for 2 people I really struggle to see the value here, save your money and catch a ferry to one of these islands, explore on your own time. Oh and they bring everyone in for an information session (figure we would get some information and history on the islands), instead it was just them upselling their own tours of the island. Pretty disgusting to be honest.
It was an 11 hour day with most of the time (7 hours) in the boat. The stops at the islands were quite short, the tour guide kept trying to sell additional tickets to take guided tours on the islands, else you were on your own. We did not take any guided tour. Hydra was very beautiful. Poros stop was extremely short (45 min) that it was meaningless. Egina was beautiful and we enjoyed walking around. There are two bus tours, one that takes you to some archaeological sites and the other around the entire island. In hind sight we should have taken the second but I also feel that this should have been included in the tour considering the price paid for the tickets.
It was a day full of beauty, fun and great cruising, we were picked up exactly on time, the boat was big and very pretty, great staff ready to serv you and the lunch buffet was just awesome! All the 3 islands were so beautiful and the people were nice and friendly. When I come back I will do this trip again. As the end of the tour approached we had live entertainment where traditional Greek dances in the traditional attires were performed and we were all welcome to join.
Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens with Optional VIP Upgrade was an excellent choice and we enjoyed every minute.
This cruise was amazing. We payed extra for the VIP upgrade and it was worth every penny. All the crew went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant time, especially Kostas. You can't go wrong with this tour.
Overall I loved seeing the 3 islands of hydras, poros and aegina but the cruise ship was very crowded and the staff onboard was not always attentive. It was very overwhelming in the lower banquet area during lunch and I felt it could have been organized a little better.
The one day cruise to 3 islands is a wonderful experience. We went on board Anna Nour ship, great ship, excellent service on board at the VIP Lounge with Mr Costas who attended us excellent. Excursions were great. We did the Hydra walking excursion which was beautiful and interesting, we have been in Hydra but never had the chance to do it, and we did and no regrets. Poros island is very small and quite. Ego a cultural excursion was amezing, we will never get tired of doing it, the temple is beautiful and Saint Nectarious is unbelievable beautiful...
