What people are saying about Attica

I thoroughly enjoyed my first time scuba diving. The instructor (and his wife who greeted me with friendliness and hospitality) was clear in his explanation, patient and helpful as I practiced techniques and pleasant to talk with during the drive to the bay where we dove. I was lucky to be his only student as the other scheduled ones were no shows. They missed out! The bus ride from and returning to Athens was convenient and smooth, even though it took me a bit to figure out. FYI… The KTEL bus station in Athens for this route is across the street from the Nomismatokopio Metro station. The daily and weekend schedules for the bus to Nea Makri (with return schedule) are posted on the window. The fare each way, paid on the bus, was €2.90. Have fun!

For those who didn't try this or are scared, the best instuctor u could get, patient, well explained, nice and really helpful for those who have a hard time. Interesting experience overall, diffrent point of view, as the saying goes worth every penny. Highly reccomend it. Really had a blast.

Excellent walk through three very beautiful Greek islands full of history. The ship is quite comfortable and lunch with several options. I recommend doing the guided tours on the island of Hydra and Aegina, as the guides are very nice and professional.

Very good experience in one day to discover the Greek islands, meals and snacks on the boat which leaves time to explore the places at stopovers of about an hour, very good memories!

Every thing was fine but the meeting point was not right
