Driver was friendly and on time!
All went well
The shuttle was running more than 30 mins late. Which made for an anxious trip to the port as I was worried about missing the ferry.
It was a great tour ! Long one but nice one. Good to see the volcano ,swim in hot springs , watch a nice sunset ! Food on board was nice just what you expect from a boat cruise. Overall Good Experience !
Hike was very good
Excellent guides with good personalities
An absolutely wonderful tour. Since it was a private tour, we deviated from the walking portion and were able to see the entire island. Kristos was fabulous--very knowledgeable and informative. We saw all the important parts of Santorini, and he really tailored it to our interests. We had a fabulous time.
Great service! Picked up exactly when scheduled and a short drive to the airport.

The vehicle was large enough for our luggage. The driver very helpful with luggage.
As others have mentioned the hot springs are not really worth diving in for not hot and will stain your clothing but the overall experience was great. Fantastic service on board and a beautiful sunset.
They say on the websit you can use an E-Ticket, it was a real problem for us at the port! Do not go for lunch at the first stop, which was the beautiful town of Oia! You WILL NOT have enough time to shop or see anything! I was VERY upset being hearded to The Blue Sky restaurant, the food was just okay and slow. We were not left with enough time, only 25 mins to see what we came for which was Oia not a Greek salad!!!. There is time to eat at Fira! I would recommend this trip but heed my warnings and you'll have a great time!
Doing what: Santorini Island Day Trip
Problem began in Santorini, The lady who had my name was not visible enough. I had to go to the tourist info and pay 2 euro to make a phone call. No info as to name and address of our hotel in santorini. Cold lady at the reception of Kymata. No coordination as to what time our pick up is.
Doing what: 2-Day Santorini Experience from Athens
This cruise does not include drinks and food. The only food available from the boat was a fruit salad and ham and cheese baguette which you would have to buy from the bar.
The volcano tour is very fast paced, the ''pathways'' are very rough and up hill so wear good running shoes. We only had a 30 minute stop in the ''hot'' springs, by the time all the people went in the sea were left with just a 10 minute stop in the warm springs.
To top it all off... the famous sunset in Oia.. you have to walk all the way up to Oia and wait for the time the sun sets, it is not timed well and you cannot view it from the boat, which for this price would have been much nicer! Oia is busy during sunset and that is why we wanted to see the sunset from the boat but were extremely disapointed when they told us to get off and go to Oia! Very disappointed, waste of money AND misleading choice of words! Never again Viator!

PROS: The islands offers a lot of activities not included on the tour.
CONS: BE AWARE --The hotels offered on the brochure by Viator are NOT the hotels booked for the local travel agency, lower quality and far locations with the same level 3 stars.
BE AWARE-- The travel time travel from Santorini to Athens 8 hours on ferry, I had have to upgrade the economic seats reserved by the local agency to Jet Seat and Business Class. Where you can get more room and more comfort to sleep or relax.
Be aware on the stops at the Island, I get off on the wrong Island but fortunately I realized my mistake and I had time to come back to the ferry.
If you have time to book this do it yourself because it is the only service offered just book ferries and hotels. On this way you will save at least 40 that you pay for this tour.
Would not recommend this tour
Disorganized ,tend to treat you like sheep
U cannot access the hot springs if you cannot swim in the ocean without safety vests which are not provided
There are all rocky beaches in thirasia and you cannot swim without fear of hitting a rock
You cannot go into the ocean barefoot because there is no beach just plain rocks
All 6 in the group came back disappointed
Not recommended even if it is free
Our driver had a baby capsule and took al our bags to his air conditioned large van. Lots of room for all our luggage and he was so interesting...it was more like,having a private tour than a transfer to the airport.
Santorini is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Be prepared for a lot of walking if you're going to see the famed Blue-domed church. The only downside was not knowing which hotel I was going to stay at until I got dropped off. It worked out for the best as I was in an amazing hotel, less than a minute from the beach. The beach has rocks instead of sand so make sure you have proper footwear as the rocks can be extremely hot.

Everything was great except the hotel in Santorini. It was so disappointed when they gave us a closet room for three people. After some discussion they supposedly upgraded us but we were not very happy. The hotel has no free Wi-Fi and the electricity turns off when you leave the room so you come back to a very hot room. The hotel was Mathias Village. Don't stay there.....
Some parts were good however I paid for upgrade to 5 star hotel and the ones in Syros and Mykanos were excellent and worth the upgrade, however the one in Santorini was only a 3 star at best and in very poor location with little or no Air Conditioning. We ended up having to take the mattress off the bed and sleep outside on the patio. Very disappointing. I would suggest just booking on your own. The package added no value that I could tell.
Very disappointed in hotel on Santorini.
This tour was amazing!
Definitely with doing as there are to many available taxis in Santorini. Our driver was great!
On time pick up. Spacious van for 2 people.
On time pick up!
