    Fine for the price.

    , Jun 2022
    The three venues were fine and the timing was good. The climb up the volcano is not too strenuous for most people - I am over 60 and it wasn’t a problem. Do not wear thongs. Bring an old ratty swimsuit for the mud bath because it will get stained. Two hours in Thirassia is maybe a little too long. As reported elsewhere the boat was very full, but everybody did have somewhere to sit (just). For the price it was OK.

    Very busy, a bit boring

    The boat is nice, quite busy there was a lot of people so you don’t have too much room. To be honest the trip is a bit boring, everything is very underwhelming. The hot springs is more of a big muddy body of water- which does stain your swimwear/ towels. The volcano is a big walk and isn’t very impressive at the top.

    We had an enjoyable day. Bring water, sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes. Only attempt the climb up the steep steps of Tharissia town if you are fit. Walking in the midday heat is really tough.

    Great value! A great to spend a day in Santorini. We enjoyed jumping off the boat to swim in the crystal clear water and climbing up to see the volcano craters.

    Good value to tour the volcano and hot springs

    The trip ended up being very good, but initially there was a lot of confusion about our pickup. The link that was sent for our pickup point would not work and we couldn’t find it. Also, our email said to meet at the old port and it was actually the new port. After we got down to the port and found which boat to get on, the rest of the trip went well. Just as a heads up to future travelers… there is a very long steep walk at the volcano. It was fine for our group, but we saw a lot of people struggling. The hot springs were fun and Therasia was a delightful island for lunch. All in all, It was a good value and I would recommend this tour.

    The volcano was very cool to see and had a great view of Santorini. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. We went on a windy day which made the boat ride cold and the hot springs could not be visited but was a good experience. No need to see Thirassia.

    Very disorganized. Tour guides don’t really do anything after the first island. You don’t do anything Except sit on a boat for 30 minutes on the second island. You only have enough time to eat on the third island. A third island has almost nothing to see

    They overpacked the boat. Thirassia is pretty lame and not really worth the time going to. The hike in the volcano was very fun though.

    Well worth it! Great and clean boat! Definitely be sure to wear close toed shoes for the volcano, and bring a swim suit for the hot springs. You can change on the boat, but it’s easier to wear it under or bring a wrap to change.

    We enjoyed the time on the boat and the beautiful scenery, especially around Oia, and enjoyed the volcano caldera hike. However, we wished the guide had given the information he gave at the top to everyone before the walk so that those who couldn’t finish the hike (or chose not to)could hear it, too. Also, we thought 2 hours on Thirassia was an hour too long. No one from our group hiked to the village and there was little to do there after lunch. We were not impressed with our guide Ulysses, but crew was great. We thought it interesting no one went over safety rules or showed us where life jackets were (did they have them?). All in all, we would not recommend—we are in our 70s and did not swim— maybe it’s a better activity for the younger set.

    This is a great tour especially during the off tourist season because it wasn’t too crowded! Our guide was knowledgeable and made the caldera hike extra interesting with the facts and history!! The water to get to the hot springs was COLD in April so beware - but even if you don’t jump in this trip is well worth it!!!

    The trip was lovely. The English was very understandable, and the tour guide was nice. The boat was pretty as well. Do not expect a wellness resort for the hot springs, but it is quite an adventure. The tour was informative, and the view was amazing.
