We loved everything about this trip. The Thalassa was amazing. The guides and crew were great. The bike rides were beautiful. My tip for others would be to opt for the e-bikes! This was my first time riding one and it was so much fun. Even the climbs were enjoyable. And we were not afraid to stop and take photos at any time. We fell in love with Greece amd it’s friendly people.

Wow...what a fabulous trip. OPA! It was a fantastic eight days with great food and excellent staff onboard the ship Thalassa. The tour was very intimate, and I was able to make some great friends. Everything about this first-class trip exceeded expectations. I highly recommend this trip for a great and relaxing way to see Greece.

The trip to the Peloponnesian Islands aboard the Thalassa surpassed expectations. The scenery, the company, the AMAZING food and the professional and good humored way the captain and crew handled the Thalassa added to the experience. It was great to share an adventure with friends old and new.

Excellent trip! The rides were scenic and most of the roads on the islands had very few cars. Weather in early October was perfect: sunny every day and not too hot. The capacity of the boat was perfect for getting to know everyone and bonding over the scrumptious meals they provided. The crew was very professional, as were the two guides. E-bikes are a must to really enjoy the trip, unless you are a very strong biker who loves hills. Swimming from the boat and various beaches was great! I highly recommend this particular boat and bike trip.

I enjoyed it from beginning to the end. I certainly think spending time in Athens before getting on the boat is a must. It is a city worth seeing and permits time to rest from travel before getting on the boat.

All of it! The boat, service, food and bike tours were all first class. The tours were very well organized and clearly stated every day. Mary Lu and Dionysus were awesome leaders! The food was so fresh, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious…each and every time. Cycling along the Aegean Sea was magical and swimming in the fresh blue waters a real treat. The crew on board were fun, helpful and catered to our every need, including working as a team lifting our bikes on and off the boat each day and getting us safely to every port. Thank you, Hennie, for including me on this wonderful adventure!

The chef was extraordinary! All of the meals were delicious and plentiful!The islands were a bit disappointing. Very barren and not much to see or explore.Wish we spent more time biking than sailing.

Trip of a lifetime!!! Everything was absolutely perfect. The crew was amazing and attentive to our every needs. The food was phenomenal! The boat was in perfect condition and if anything came up the crew addressed immediately. The daily bike rides were so scenic, fun and informative. Our lovely guides were just so energetic and organized! I can't say enough good things about this trip, thank you Tripsite!!!

Previous reviews of the Thalassa have been disappointing. I was told earlier this year that the boat was under going repairs and updates, was this the case on your recent trip. We are interested in a Sept, 2024 trip. We have been on 3 previous bike and barge trips.

This trip was amazing! the boat crew and the tour guides were phenomenal and made the trip so good.
Dionysus (actuallly there were 2 of them) were our guides and they were outstanding and I can’t say enough about how good they were. The engineer Achilles was awesome and always had a great recommendation for us on every island.
I would use this company time and time again and can’t stress enough as to how much fun this trip was.

My wife and I had a great time on board the Thalassa. We appreciate all the hard work that went into our stay. The crew and guides were more than accommodating and their professionalism was apparent. The scenes from the Thalassa were amazing and we felt like the Thalassa was the place-to-be. The food was especially good on the tour. The meals on the boat also had generous servings where we only wanted light meals off the boat. The Starlink Wi-Fi was a nice surprise and came in very handy. Bike and boat vacations are our favorite. We look forward to doing more trips even if it means going over the handlebars (smile).

This was an amazing experience! The trip offered a great balance of relaxation, exercise, cultural experience, sight seeing, shopping & the best food I’ve ever had on vacation without the hassle of having to figure out what/where to eat. Everything was planned so well and there was always the option to disconnect from the group if you needed alone time.
Our tour guides were the BEST! A perfect combination of yin/yang. Both are Greek and had great stories about the history and places we visited. Dionysus recommendations about where to eat on the islands were perfect! You could really feel how proud they both were about sharing their country with us.
The crew on the boat work hard to make sure we all had a wonderful experience. From the captain to engineer to chef and deck hands, those 6 guys worked hard and kept a smile on their face for the entire week. We had multiple swim opportunities with paddle boards, snorkel equipment & even rides on the small motor boat used to shuttle to shore. We all really enjoyed the swim stops in between island trips.
Our group had the best time & we are already looking at where we will do another trip in 2024.

The islands were beautiful and the tour very relaxing. Our guide Dionaysis was very knowledgeable and made the tour so enjoyable for everyone on board. It was amazing to be able to jump into the sea after the bike ride around town in the heat. Thalassa was an amazing ship with a wonderful crew. Couldn’t have asked for a better week at sea!

Our tour on board the "Thalassa" was a breath of fresh air and chance to unplug from our busy lives. It was amazing! The July weather was perfect for swimming in the sea and soaking up sun on the top deck. We were traveling with friends from home but enjoyed meeting new friends from Britain. We all had a great time sharing our travel experiences and enjoying the cycling tours each day. A special bonus was the food on board, our Chef did an amazing job, and it was by far the best food I have had on any tour. Our tour guides also did a great job, Dionysios had our routes and bikes ready for us each day and spoiled us with local treats and Greek stories along the way. The crew also worked very hard to make this an unforgettable trip. This was our 2nd tour through Tripsite and everything went as planned, the organization did a great job keeping us informed along the way. If you like the sun, sea air, and charm of small islands, then this trip is for you!

Thalassa is a beautiful boat. Cabins were very spacious, crew were professional and friendly, food was delicious. The tour guides were funny and energetic. This tour is the perfect blend of casualness and upscale. It was very hot at the beginning of July. The cycling itinerary was adjusted a little to try and avoid the noon heat. Many swim breaks.

Biking on Spetses and walking around the village on Hydra. The dinner seaside at the port in Methana. The crew and guides really had to step up there game when the chef had to depart due to a family emergency. They were able to make arrangements in each port for the meals we were supposed to have on board and did a great job at that.

The tour guides were extremely flexible and able to adapt to an unfortunate situation and provide a remarkable dining experience after the trip's cook left due to a family emergency. The guides arranged for outstanding meals at local restaurants and we were able to experience a wide variety of excellent Greek cuisine. The dinner on the beach will remain a memorable experience. The daily bike rides along the "undulating" roads and ever changing sea views were also a great experience.

The place is just stunning. It is ridiculous that water is that blue. Each town was a postcard. Every evening the eat ashore meal was a chance to dine in an outdoor restaurant with the breeze wafting through. Big recommendation is to opt for the ebikes. I ride regularly and was on a normal geared bike and found the going tough. Make sure you climb up to the fort. Make sure you swim when the boat pulls up for a swim break- it is a must. Take a book to fall asleep reading on the rear deck cushions, they are so comfy.

There were several memorable moments for us . Katerina our guide and organiser supported by Jahnesses the second guide were excellent ..The boat and crew including the Chef with great meals made it run so smoothly.We had a mix of families,singles and nationality’s that became quite close as the trip progressed.We both used E bikes that for us were essential as there were some challenging hills.The Islands are spectacular with the coastal roads well selected to give us optimal views. SUGGESTIONS The boat meals are huge with often three courses ,per haps for the main course,rather than bringing out individual plates they offer offer a large dish that each person can decide their own quantity .The mix of ages especially with children there seemed some waste. For us there were no negatives,I have already sent a review of our trip

B. The e-bikes we used for this trip were tired and in Leia Mais need of serious repair or new bikes need to be purchased.Suggestion:1. Maintenance and repair review of each bike should be undertaken and new equipment installed as needed.
C. We did a tour extension in Athens for 3 days. Tripsite did not send any information about our extension ahead of time. So, while we had a driver pick us up at the airport and we had a nice hotel, there was no tour guide. We had to figure out what was planned for us on our own. Tripsite referred us to our Greek contact of whom there was none.Suggestion:Better contact between Tripsite and their overseas vendor to be sure travelers have made appropriate contact with local guides.

We are incredibly sadden by your experience on board the Thalassa. Diesel fumes can be a problem for the rear cabins depending on the wind direction and if the windows are open. We do recommend closing windows (which is also better for airconditioning) Nevertheless, we're so sorry you had to deal with this on your tour. Sewage smells can also be a problem with the toilets are no properly used but in most cases is an easy fix. Unfortunately during your week more serious repairs were needed, and have since been made. The ebikes are another valid issue and one that we are slowly working to improve for the 2023 season. Electric bikes are a huge investment but little by little our partner boats are upgrading their fleet (which was difficult post pandemic 2022).. In regards to your extension in Athens, again, we are so sorry for the lack of communication you experienced. The extension package has been updated for 2023 and we will ensure future travelers have all the information necessary prior to departure. I hope you were able to enjoy the tour despite these issues!

My wife and I have just recently finished this trip and we can highly recommend it.We have done three boat and bike tours and this has been the best. The Thalassa is well appointed for such a trip,from the adequate cabins with AC ,lots of space to relax,frequent stops where the Captain would drop the anchor for swims,friendly crew and excellent meals.The two guides Catarine and Johanese made this run so smoothly.Catarine s background in Archeology most informative for us. The group on board were a mix of families and single travellers twelve in total . The bikes were of good quality,made in Germany.I am seventy years of age and we chose E bikes which I recommend as there are some challenging hills on the islands. The islands and coast lines are stunning. For us it ticked all the boxes.
