Tour description provided by Viator

Hop between three stunning Greek islands on a day of luxurious cruising! Leaving from Piraeus Port in Athens, you’ll travel aboard the impressive high-speed ‘Aegean Glory’ boat to the Saronic Gulf Islands of Hydra, Poros and Egina. Spend time at leisure on Poros and Hydra, and then enjoy an excursion to either the Temple of Aphaia or Church of Agios Nektario on Egina. Between island visits, make use of the vessel’s lavish onboard facilities including a saltwater swimming pool and luxurious sun loungers, plus enjoy a gourmet à la carte lunch!

Start your tour with a hotel pickup to Piraeus Port by luxury air-conditioned coach, or alternatively meet your host directly at the port. At Piraeus you’ll hop aboard your luxury ship – the Aegean Glory– and then set off on your 2-hour cruise to the island of Poros. On the way, make use of the boat’s facilities; perhaps stroll around the wide open decks, relax on comfortable sun loungers or even take a dip in the onboard swimming pool!

On arrival on Poros, the smallest of the three islands, you’ll have roughly one hour to spend at leisure. Maybe check out Trinzia -- Poros’ intriguing Russian dockyard, or take a stroll in the Lemon Forest (Lemonodassos), where you’ll find pretty windmills and waterfalls dotted about the densely wooded area of lemon and orange trees.

At a pre-arranged time, board your boat and sit down for a gourmet à la carte lunch with drinks while cruising across the sea to Hydra. As you approach the island, admire its amphitheater-shaped port, which was once a shelter for pirates, and then disembark to explore Hydra’s colorful capital independently.

After roughly two hours at leisure here, hop back aboard your boat and cruise to your third island of the day – Egina. While traveling, your host will speak to you about island excursions that you can join if you wish. Opt to visit the Temple of Aphaia – a classic Doric monument on the northernmost tip of the island – or visit the Orthodox Church of Agios Nektarios that now serves as a monastery and convent. Alternatively, just relax on the island’s sun-drenched beaches.

The journey back to Piraeus Port takes approximately 1.5 hours, and you can use the time to swim in the pool or dance to live music in the disco. On arrival at Piraeus Port, you’ll be transferred the short distance back to your hotel where your tour ends.
