From Ouranoupolis: Cruise to Mount Athos Monasteries
- Transportation included
- Duration: 3 hours
- Optional audio guide
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.
(+) 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 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
explaination of what you see in English and French, as well as in Greek paid parking at Ouranoupolis port, but cheap, no more than 3€ for 4h very beautiful beaches around Ouranoupolis, with no paid parking
