Just a so so tour

Even when we had a small good time during the tour but it truly isn’t worth money and a whole day to try. We spent almost time on the road and on a shared boat with lot of ppl only to see some Monasteries from the distance. The highlight of the tour is Ammouliani beach. The beach is very nice but we had only 180 mins for swimming and relaxing. It’s unfair for that long road trip. So if you just wanna go to Ammouliani beach and enjoy your time there, my advice is buying boat ticket from the port in the city center to go direct to Ammouliani. It’d the best way to save your time, for sure. Anw the driver is kindly, friendly, helpful. Thanks him for being our company on the other day.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your Day Trip to Ouranoupoli with Mt. Athos Cruise. We are sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy tour trip. Please note that we do not mention that we visit the monasteries anywhere. It is not possible for anyone to join the monasteries. Thank you for your nice comments about our trip attendant . We hope to see you again in the future. Best regards, Mary Polatidou

Depends what your looking for

We went on a very hot day. If leaving from Thessaloniki be aware the one way trip is at least two hours. The boat is good and staff good. Bar on boat but too many smoking areas for our liking. If you don’t smoke only area is inside the boat not outside. In our opinion smoking on any boat is dangerous. The Cruise past Monastery’s was good and good highlights but with bus trip consumes the majority of your time if leaving from Thessaloniki. If your planning at the stop over to have a swim and lunch at restaurant you won’t have time. If you are going to swim take your own lunch or skip it is our advise. The beach you stop at is OK but not idyllic. Overall a good experience but not exceptional.

Très belle journée, le bateau est très bien, l'équipage très sympa! Nous ne sommes pas allées jusqu'au mt Athos.. Le personnel de la sortie a bien voulu nous déposer ou cela nous arrangeait.
