      Nice tour
      Very helpful staff, easy drive, not too crowded. I prefer its smaller scale. Information about monstrosities comes in many languages. Fun for kids. We enjoyed it a lot.

      An amazing experience on the sea!
      I took the cruise to Mount Athos and Amouliani Island and I was more than pleased with the planning, the boat, the crew, the sea sight, I was lucky enough to see dolphins as well! The Eirinikos Glassbottom team were extremely helpful, friendly and nice. I look forward to come back next year and see Christiana again, she is an amazing host. Don't look further and choose the Eirinikos Glassbottom cruises for beautiful experiences on the sea!

      Great boat trip, do this one
      Best €35 I spent all holiday. Day was seamless and well organised. Seems like everyone had a good time. Staff and boat are both very nice. The schedule was modified due to weather but still went to great places. It’s 1-1.5hrs at each of the 3 places (2 beaches and one town). Would recommend highly.

      A unique experience
      I had a wonderful time with my family on the Mount Athos sightseeing cruise. It was a three-hour trip that took us along the southwest side of the Mount Athos peninsula, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an important center of Eastern Orthodox monasticism. We saw nime of the twenty ancient monasteries from the boat, each with its own unique architecture and history. The audio guide was very informative and available in different languages. The boat was comfortable and spacious, with a bar for coffee and snacks (for the kids) . The staff was friendly and helpful. The scenery was breathtaking, with the rugged coastline, the turquoise sea and the green hills. We also had the chance to see some dolphins along the way. It was a memorable experience that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about the culture and nature of this region.

      Nice adventure!
      Cruise worth the ticket price. We were a bit skeptical as the yacht is quite large, and we thought there would be a lot of chaos even for the onboard lunch. Instead, everything was organized impeccably with lunch boxes, courteous crew, and they waited for us as we were running late to ensure we didn't miss the tour. The visited locations are very beautiful. We traveled with a child who had a great time both on board and in the sea. Highly recommended!

      Excellent
      Great experience, very nice staff, good music and a general good vibe. The sights are amazing, also the two swimming spots have a crystal clear blue water. I was able to have a vegetarian lunch (yet traditional Greek), which I find very considerate. :))) Overall, I highly recommend.

      Refugee trip
      Overbooked and overcrowded with rude and uneducated eastern european. Crew apologetic but no solution given. A joke of a trip. We were 8 and had to seat on a table for 2. Worst day of our stay in Greece.

      Worst boat experience ever! Complete disappointment!
      Our experience was absolutely terrible from the beginning to the end. It is a long story but basically the organizers OVERBOOKED the boat trip, called us the day before to tell us that the day will be windy (pretext) to make us cancel the trip via booking. We decided to take the trip because we were very exited (especially the kids) but we didn’t know it was actually overbooked. When we arrived at the boat, 20 min early, the boat was packed. We could not find any seat, almost fought with other people on the boat for seats, the crew came and found us a couple of seats here and there at other people’s tables. During the trip we kept being pushed around by the other groups, a large 30 people group took over the main deck as their own private boat party. It culminated with the “delicious” local lunch which was served in takeaway boxes which we had to eat on our lap or standing because there was no place to sit. The trip is marketed as a “luxury” experience on booking website, it was horrible for us. The grilled meat was half raw (pork), our kids had to eat on their lap and they were being pushed aside from the members of the other group. We kept complaining to the crew but, although they said we were right, they didn’t want to do anything, saying they are not the “boat police” to tell other people were to sit. They were just sorry for us. So for the remaining 2 hrs on the boat we sat crammed in a corner on a few chairs, 8 people at a table for 3, with all our bags on our laps while the large group was lounging on all the couches, obviously taking double of the space they needed. At the end, the crew offered us 7 pictures (overpriced at 5 euros each) to try to make up for the bad experience. We paid 180 euros for the “luxury” trip and drove 2 hrs to the boat and 2 hrs back to the accommodation, for the worst holiday experience!

      A wonderful boat trip to see the astounding monasteries from a distance
      The boat was clean and had a bar for refreshments and snacks. Many people but did not feel crowded. As the trip started at 11 it is better to have a seat on the left side of the boat (it has shadow and better views of the monasteries); the trip is only on the east side of Mt Athos and while returning the boat is farther away from the continent (right side of the boat will see the monasteries from a bigger distance). Still people are moving up down, left right and everbody can enjoy the astounding monasteries on the hills/mountains. We were lucky to see delphins for a few seconds. Not so much to see on the glass bottom though

    Does what it says on the package. I personally would not do it again or recommend because i like to be stimulated a bit more than there’s a building it’s functioning or not functioning. Free water given once onboard. Snacks available to buy and toilets onboard however these are not checked and cleaned through the trip.
    5hour trip and leaving at 11 and stops after a few hours of going around the coast showing monasteries with a ? prerecorded voice over.

    Stop over for lunch in Ammouliani. Off peak season not many places are open or can accommodate lunch for large numbers of people.

    No indication of a parking lot next to the departure spot makes it difficult to find the boat.
    Overbooked by at least 20 people, as such it is hard to find a place to sit, and impossible to sit comfortably while enjoying the view.
    The bar is decently equipped and priced, except for the fact the P.O.S is not working.
    "Glass bottom" refers to a couple of extremely small windows, through which pretty much nothing can be seen.
    Stay away, do not even consider wasting your money and time on this shameless cashgrab!!!

    A fine tour, a good price but very little info about the monasteries. Mostly just a listing of age and documents they have. The sound in the speakers weren't that good.

    In an info mail ahead of the tour we were encouraged to bring our swimsuit. Being an alone adult with smaller two kids that still uses water wings and belt. I then brought swimmingsuits for 3 people, 2 set of armwings, 2 swimming belts and a couple of towels... but there was no chance to swim. Its alot to bring along and not get a chance to use it.

    The glasbottom - we really couldn't see anything because of the speed. At the very end we could see a little.

    Letting people smoke on board half inside the ship (near the stairs) was a big dislike from here.

    The ship has a beautiful glassbottom, the Mount Athos tour was amazing cause i seen different monasteries from the ship and also saw dolphins on tour which was a core memory for a person like me. We also stopped at the Alikes beach in Ammouliani where we had an amazing swim and time for ourselves or with friends. I very much recommend ! !! Cheers to all Eirinikos ship crew and Kristi for making this trip memorable.

    We went on Disco '80 party trip on Saturday before this trip. Very nice idea, excellent music and people involved in organizing this. Very skilled Captain. The trip to Mount Athos and Amouliani Island - 5 stars also. If you are in Ouranopolis or nearby area, don' t miss them.

    Lovely and professional boat trip along Mount Athos to see all the monasteries (from afar) and then a stop at the island. The booking and trip was made so easy! Really enjoyed this trip. The icing on the cake was definitely the lovely staff, friendly and service with a smile!

    This is the average Greek experience any tourist would need to have, the sightseeing tour is great. The crew is very nice and considerate. Also, there's a bar with different beverages and snacks in case the see starves you. :))) Totally worth it and I highly recommend.

    Tour was good for what it was. It was a little boring. I think having it in 20 different languages just made it long as you had to wait till they got to your language to know what they were actually talking about. Lunch/bbq on board would have been a great thing to add, they did not have that. Their tour that does lunch was all booked out but when we arrived the boat was there and empty so not sure what happened there or we would have booked the other one. It was a good experience to see an island and to be on a boat for the day (it was nice weather) but it was just ok/average for us.

    We booked the trip based in trip advisor recommendations. As mentioned by the advertisement, it is a modern and comfortable boat with a bar for drinks and snacks. The trip starts from Ouranopli and cruises along with the Mount Atos monasteries. This was very nice. We were lucky to see Dolfins during the cruise. It was of course the favorite of our kids. Then from Mount Atos we went to Ammouliani’s island. This was for me less nice. For the 1h30 stop we were dropped at Akiles beach. This place is over-crowded and over-priced. I call this a tourist trap. I guess there must be a market for that. I personally don’t like this type of places.

    All-in-all a nice trip. Except for the stop-over.
