The excursions were great and our tour guide Eugenia was brilliant, a fountain for Greek historical and current history. We spent a day in Athens at the Acheologica Museum and it paled in comparison to our cruise excursions. Read full review

It was absolutely fantastic to be able to visit so many places from the sea, going into small harbours and tying up among local fishing boats. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our vessel has an on board waste treatment system to avoid polluting the sea with waste. Furthermore, the smaller size of these cruise vessels and the smaller passenger numbers, ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism.

All food on board is bought from local communities, sometimes directly from the producer themselves. By trying some local fruit juice instead of a well known American brand of soft drink, you will support the economy, it will be better for you, it will have travelled less miles, and who knows, you might find you enjoy it more too.

By using small ships, we can access many smaller harbours than larger ships, thus reducing mileage travelled and keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum. The small ports and harbours that we use are only available to small ships. This gives us access to many areas not available to larger vessel but greatly reduces the distance travelled.

People

We encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts. This can be a small thing such as buying a local cake from a small bakery, trying some fresh seafood at a street stall or having a haircut and shave in a local barbers - excellent value .

The shipís managers will buy as much of their produce as possible from local communities, and will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. All the food on board is bought from local communities; fruit vegetables, plenty of fish, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman.

Most tourists to Greece and the Greek Islands stay (and often donít leave) some large resorts in a few restricted locations, so by enabling our passengers to visit some different areas of Greece without putting any strain on local amenities and resources, we are spreading the financial benefits and the load of our visit.

We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.

We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life in Greece.
