A wonderful trip with several boat rides and a long bus ride. We ran late because of coordinating between different boats but it was a beautiful way to see the historic monasteries of Mt. Athos. On the main cruise (several tours combine on a larger ship for this one) watch for seagulls close to the harbour area, they like to travel alongside the boat and more than one person got hit by 'debris' on the upper deck. Be prepared to also spend a couple hours at a beach on a small island after the main cruise, swim, lounge or small restaurant are really your only choices to fill your time here. While waiting for the second boat we had a bit of time to explore the quaint village of Ouranoupoli, which has a few shops and restaurants. Our tour guide was quite informative without being overly talkative, which I prefer. The pickup/dropoff spot is right by a designated taxi area, which makes it easy to get to.
