Full description
Your first stop on this tour will be the lava island Nea Kameni, where you'll have the opportunity to walk up the soil path and approach the crater of the still active volcano. Then, return to the boat which will take you to the second lava island, Palea Kameni, where you'll find the amazing hot springs - the boat will make a stop about 50 meters from the opening, so you can swim in the green sulfur waters of the hot springs, wet your feet, or just enjoy the view! After the hot springs, the tour continues to Thirassia Island, which was once part of the island of Santorini before the volcano's explosion. Spend two hours on this amazing island and do some swimming, hang out on the beach, have lunch next to the sea, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. On the way back to Athinios port where the tour ends, you'll cruise on the King Thiras yacht under Oia where the best pictures can be taken of the amazing cliffs and breathtaking scenery. Once you arrive at the port, the bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

It was so much fun with our guide, a very kind lady. I like the tour very much, first all, the pick up and drop off service is so much efficient saved a lot of time- so I can focus on the sites which guided by our guide, and also, the boat tour is so interesting combination of 4 places which all are essential in santorini and you cannot go to those places on your own, and last thing I really appreciate it was that my tour package does not come with sun set in Oia, but we were still transferred to Oia for the sunset, and after the sunset, we were sent back to the hotel by bus. So nice, totally worth it!!!!! Don’t forget to tip our tour guide I feel so sad that most of people don’t tip.

Very nice excursion !! We recommend her without hesitation! Everything is well put together from A to Z. We just have to let ourselves be guided and enjoy. The guide is very friendly and speaks very good French. Everything is great, the visit of the still active volcano (we can see a little smoke coming out of the crater), swimming in the hot springs by jumping directly from the boat then visit of the island of Thirasia where we can eat at the restaurant in the old port almost on the waterfront. The climb to the village is tough under the sun but this desert village is worth it. However, the time allowed on this island deserves to be a little longer. We don't have time to go on forever. In short, the excursion is really worth it, you will get what you pay for !!

Nice boat tour!

Collection and return were well organized. All the excursion points were approached and the tour guide was very careful to ensure that everyone found the right boat in time. Swimming in the hot springs was also well organized by the boat crew. The stay in Therassia is long enough for the ascent to Therassia or a meal right at the jetty and for souvenirs. The tour guide was very helpful in the end that everyone found the right bus for the way back.
