We decided to take this 12hr trip when we were booking our flight and hotel through expedia. Initially all is well, on pickup from our hotel, the person in charge handed us a piece of paper where our Bus No. ( bus #5) was written for our transport back in the hotel from the port after the trip. The first stop was aegina, a tour was offered bec acc. to them the island was too big to explore by foot, my mistake, we took the panoramic tour and for me it's just a waste of money ( 15 Eu each) not much to see, it's all winding road and cliff, boring, the tourist guide tried so much to make it exciting, there was this convent or church and we were allowed to explore, bought some pestachio nuts at the foot of the hill, waited and back in the bus again. It was cold and windy on the other part of the boat so we decided to stay on the opposite side, but no way you can tolerate the smell of gasoline, so all the way we were inside. The lunch was average, it was buffet, but choices were not that great, enough not to get hungry, the pasta was tasteless. The other food was average. The other islands, Poros and Hydra were better, the best was Hydra, there were suppose to be donkey ride, but they are mostly horses. The trip overall was tolerable, we enjoyed the view, and browsing on the shops on the islands. But what was really not acceptable, was when we docked on the port, it was dark, there were at least 10 buses, and people in charge with their placards were the bus no. were written were standing on one side of the road, to group as, but did not wait enough, she went right away towards the assigned bus, she just assumed that people will take the bus assigned to them, that was still ok we can look for our bus we know what the number is, but that was our mistake, all the bus has no number, there were a couple but what was written was group A and the other one group B, no where can you find a bus with no. 5 on it, we started to ask the driver of each bus and they don't even know, finally at the end of the line which is the last bus we saw the girl grouping us when we docked, she was there already.This tour is so disorganize, and it's not even the peak of tourist season, i can just imagine when it is. My advise, if you have been to another boat ride, keep your money spend it on another trip, there's not much to offer, but if you choose to do it, just stay on the port don't buy their extra tour.
