A great island, where the air is so fresh and clean, no cars, we walked like 4 to 5 hours around the Hydra harbor, and had lunch at a restaurant near the shore. Very quiet place, especially when you move from the Hydra downtown main harbour to the Kamini harbour. The food is delicious, and traditional greek, the ice-cream is yummy.We reserved with keytours, the Taxi driver was so punctual, and the ferry too. Plus the ferry is comfortable and relatively stable for those who have seasickness symptoms like me ;)
Key tours had mistakenly booked us on two tours without us knowing. The 3 island day tour we were picked up for, confirming with the driver that it was the hydra days tour and he confirmed it was, which was not correct. We ended up being taking to the 'marina' and were told by the tour guide to get on the 3 island day tour as otherwise we would be stranded at the marina.
The customer service from key tours we experienced was extremely disappointing and unprofessional. We had to contact the company multiple times, each time the staff at key tours said they would contact us and sort the problem out, but we had to constantly ring them to follow up what was happening. Staff at key tours suggested we stay on the 3 island day tour as it was a more expensive tour and it would be easier. However we didn't want to visit the other islands, we wanted to spend the day on Hydra. On checking the prices the hydra island day tour was more expensive than the 3 island day tour. We felt we were inconveniencing them, when in fact it was their error and we were being inconvenienced.
In summary, avoid booking this tour. It is much more reliable to organise it yourself. All you need to do is book your ferry tickets through hellenic seaways and private transfer or taxi to and from the Pireaus Port.
Wonderful and easy way to see a Greek Island if you are pressed for time and don't have time to visit some of the other islands overnight. This tour was a highlight of my trip. The island is a great way to spend the day. If you're there in the summer, be sure to bring a bathing suit and towel and flip flops/sandals as some of the beaches within walking distance to the port can be rocky and harsh on the feet. There's also opportunity to take a quick boat/ferry ride to the better beaches outside of walking distance from the port. The hotel pick-up and drop-off is a fantastic aspect of this tour my taxi driver was wonderfully helpful and friendly. He actually walked me to the ferry to make sure I knew exactly which boat to get on.
