A must see location, just be aware of transfer and lunch is very poor.

It's definitely worth a trip as the water is so beautiful! The 3 stops each had their own uniqueness. MT Tours organised the trip. The coach pick-up was very confusing as our pick-up location changed at short notice. We were told to go to a remote area with no landmarks nearby. The coach didn't wait although we were only 5 minutes late, this meant we paid €70 to get to the next pick-up location. The lady we spoke to in the phone was rude and unhelpful. The lunch provided was awful so I would've much preferred using my time to stay in the water. The 2nd stop at Ammouliani had great little shops and food places, I'd recommend eating there instead. The day itself apart from this was a great experience and the scenery was breath taking.

Lovely relaxing cruise. A must for anyone visiting halkidiki.

Brilliant cruise along the coast to Mt Athos seeing all the many monasteries along the way. We were picked up from our hotel by calypso cruises and also dropped back off at the end. The staff were very friendly and the boat was lovely. As we were the first on the boat we were able to get the best seats at the very front of the boat. It was cushioned and we were able to sunbath also. The guide was very informative and spoke in many languages. Definately worth the money.

Condensed and focused trip past monastic settlements

(+) Comfortable ship with an excellent view from all seats. Friendly crew attitude. Glass-bottom offers interesting view in low-depth waters. Excellent occasion to meet wildlife: dolphins and seagulls accompanying the ship. (-) Audio presentation of visited places not audible enough at all times. Monastic life film projection not performed or moment not announced to passengers. Promised yellow coral reef presentation did not happen.

Very nice tour. The guide - Demitria - full with knowledge, lovely. The bus and the driver were comfort and reliable. But... your site told us that it would be a 7 hour tour. It took 12 hours !! Please update the information in your site.

The tour was great - the guides were indifferent

The tour around mount Athos was very nice and Ourianopolis is pretty. But the tour guide ladies were not very good at all - gave us almost no information at all and seemed unable to count passengers. So not great
