Boring and disappoting experince
Alex_E
, Jul 2021
The tour was a constellaiton of disappointments: 1) tour bus was 30 minutes late - perhaps not a bif deal unless it is 7am (and you 100% miss your breakfast) 2) in the middle of the long road from (and back to) Thessaloniki bus has stopped for 30+ minutes - just to change some passengers with another tourist bus going to another tour. This was nice logistic trick you have to pay by your time doing nothing in the middle of nowhere 3) when bus has been finally arrived to a pier it has happenned (not a surprice after all those delays) that old and small tourist ship is near full - and you need to fight for a free seat 4) ship's crew was merry, bold immortals - not wearing any masks and concerning about security measures 5) THE biggest problem, however, was the tour was not what it has been advertised - after long boring journey across the bay it came to Athos peninsula for just 30 minutes (no going to "southern tip of peninsula etc.", briefly passing by only three monasteries at substantial distance and then heading to a "banane beach" (instead of Uranopolis) when you have about 3 hours of virtually doing nothing at heat and sun. You can swim of course , there are no other opportunities to swim in whole Greece indeed. To summarise, try to avoid this tour unless you want to have exosting (12 hours) and boring (hours in the bus, sea and beach) experience

Apart from all the things the tour was supposed to do, we saw dolphins and that was one of the highlights for me The place we stopped for lunch was beautiful and it was a shame we couldn't spend more time there. Very enjoyable overall though.
