What You Can Expect
Cruise to the foot of Nea Kameni and enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time for a stroll around the volcanic landscape. After paying your entrance fee to the site, explore at your leisure. Have your camera ready to capture photos of the dark volcanic cliffs cutting a contrast against the blue waves of the Aegean Sea, and look out for pieces of magma as you walk around.
Meet back up with your guide at a prearranged time, and walk to the volcano’s hot springs (admission fee at your own expense) for a relaxing and reviving bath. The naturally formed pools were created from volcanic activity and are said to have medicinal powers against skin and bone disease.
Feeling refreshed and relaxed, return to your boat and finish your experience with the highlight of your evening: dinner as the sun goes down. Cruise over the sea to Thirasia, the large island adrift from Santorini’s northwestern coast. Forming part of the remains of ancient Thira, the island is sparsely populated and known for its stunning rocky coastline. Moor up next to the rocks and savor your dinner with a glass of wine and water.
After watching the sun set over the island of Santorini, cruise back to the start point and finish your evening experience with a hotel drop-off.

it was fun. they really showed us tourists how the Greeks party
Loved everything about this tour.
This tour was amazing! You depart on a boat to the volcanic island and trek to the top (30 min hike). You then depart to another island where you swim to an inlet where there is a thermal spring. Red muddy water which stain so wear dark bathers. Then dinner on the boat and sunset views!!
This tour was amazing!
The sailing was phenomenal on a perfect day. The crew was friendly, super helpful and fun. We even had a dance party at sunset and learned traditional Greek men and women dances! I couldn't recommend this trip more! Hiking at Nea Kameni was breathtaking!
Very beautiful tour. Missed the tour bus at the pick up point but Viator contact point in Athens was quick to remedy the problem. There is no wine tasting but there is free flow wine and buffet. Guided tour at volcano spot, Nea Kameni was excellent. Highly recommended.
Cruise was excellent but van be booked directly from old port. The communication about pick up location was poor. I was told opposite the hospital and not knowing the area, the local bus station is opposite the hospital, we ended up getting on the wrong bus , after being directed by a person on duty at the bus depot and then the driver saying yes yes this was the right bus, finally being dropped off outside town when a conductor came around to sell us a ticket. When I rang up I was told no way I could make the tour that dayand had to join the next day. (I was thankful I hadn't missed out altogether) . Though my dismay to find out the next day that the bus takes you to new port to meet the boat, which then travels to old port to pick up more passengers. I could have easily made my way to old port the previous day. Once on the boat the cruise, the walk to the volcano site, though hot and long , I was prepared for that, the swim at the hot springs, the wonderful beautiful meal and wine ( no wine tasty g) one wine which was fine, and beautiful sunset with music exceptional friendly staff who speak most languages, once on the boat a brilliant cruise 100%brilliant. We did however choose to hop off at old port on the way back and get the donkey ride up to Fira, a unique experience in itself, and gave the bus a miss.
I am only giving this 4 stars because we were told that we were being picked up at our hotel, it is all over the explanation as well as the confirmation I received. However when I contacted the company to just triple check the time of pick up we were told we would have to walk to meet the bus. Other than that, this was worth every penny. We had a guide with us for the volcano hike so we were able to learn about its history. The hot springs aren't really hot, more warm, but they don't control that. Dinner was ok, we weren't offered more then watermelon with dinner, BUT you could have as much wine as you wanted for free at that point. The sunset was unreal. This was the first thing we did when we got to Santorini and it was the best way to see the sunset.
Great tour taking in some of the best parts of Santorini. Very relaxing and lots of fun with a great group of people and staff.
Only improvement: Clearier clarification of the outlay of the activities at the start would have put more people at ease. Payable entrance fees required for volcano not the warm springs, that had everyone confused.
Decent tour through when they say they stop at a hot spring they really don't. They stop in the ocean and you can jump off the boat if you want to swim to an inlet with slightly heated water.
