Full-day Tour of the Saronic Islands from Athens

1. Full-day Tour of the Saronic Islands from Athens

After a morning transfer by bus from Athens to the port, you’ll be welcomed on board a luxurious cruise ship and 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. 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. 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.

What people are saying about Hydra, Greece

The meeting point was easy to find and checking in didn’t even take two minutes. Nice, big ship with beautiful inner and outer areas. Very friendly and helpful staff. The three islands were beautiful, especially Hydra was breathtaking. Lunch was nice - chicken, fish, rice, potatoes, salad and bread. Drinks were not provided, but you could either buy them at the bars or bring your own. We also brought our own breakfast and snacks which wasn’t a problem at all. The stays on the island aren’t that long due to the time it takes to get there. But that is common sense so we don’t get how people are complaining about it. Plus, the landscapes you pass by are amazing and in nice weather you’re rewarded with a beautiful sunset. We didn’t take any of the tours on the islands since they seemed a little pricey to us, but we were perfectly fine exploring on our own. Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend it, if you want to see three beautiful islands in just one day.

A pretty enjoyable day all in all. Very good organization of transports to and from the cruise terminal. Highly capable and. Wry friendly crew. The whole family had a great day. Highly recommended!
