Full description

Starting by bus with pickup from your selected meeting point, you will arrive at the port of Athinios and board the King Thiras boat. You will then make a first stop at the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Walking up the soil path, you will approach the crater of this still-active volcano. You will then continue to the second volcanic island named Palea Kameni, and make a stop approximately 50 meters from the hot springs to dive into the green sulfur waters, or simply relax and enjoy the view.

Following the hot springs, you will sail to Thirasia Island, another part of Santorini before the eruption of the volcano. Stay in Thirasia for 2-3 hours, where you will have the chance to go swimming, go purchase lunch, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. Leaving Thirasia island, you will head to the port of Athinios. The tour continues with a bus transfer to Oia village for the sunset. Your tour ends 30 minutes after the sunset, at which point you will gather at the pick up point in Oia where your bus will be waiting to take you back to the starting point.

Really nice trip. The walk up the volcano was tough but satisfying when we got there. Hot springs were excellent. Final trip to Oia for the sunset was nice but luckily we had been before so knew not to bother walking to the top to battle the crowds, we stayed at the bottom and found a nice bar to watch the sunset. Only criticism was the boat was too full of people and finding seats was hard. Makes you appreciate the private tours more. Overall a good experience.

I left my wallet somewhere at the last island and I don't know what it took for them to retrieve it, but they did. I was amazed. They returned it the next fully intact! Nothing missing. The cruze was great but retrieving that wallet was beyond amazing!

partiti col bus da Fira alle 9.20 tour in barca molto carino la guida ha saputo raccontarci tutto dell'isola e sapeva anche consigliare dove mangiare un boccone o dove fare una passeggiata. unica pecca a thirasia dopo la lunga scalinata il paese era praticamente abbandonato. tramonto a oia bellissimo e anche quella mezz'ora che lo anticipa riesci a girare tranquillamente. esperienza molto consigliata
