The tour was really fun, very organised and our tour guide Chris was very energetic, knowledgeable and helpful. Our bus in the morning was a bit late but other than that we had a good time. Everything else was on time, the boat wasn’t that bad as other reviews mention, yes some people sat in the sun but that’s because there wasn’t much cover anyway. There is bar on the boat for drinks and refreshments. I felt we had enough time to do all the mentioned activities, the sunset in Oía was spectacular, only thing you have to rush back to the bus straight after sun goes down as the streets are busy with tourists. Overall great experience

We’ve been picked up from Kamari in the morning and from Old port we have been embarked on a boat that was a bit overbooked.Even if was 1.09.2022 the weather was so hot. We stopped at the volcano, hot springs and Thirasia and Oia. Vera our travel guide was amazing, always making sure everyone is following and all the explanations about the history of the island, she made the experience even nicer.

departed by bus from Fira at 9.20 am very nice boat tour the guide was able to tell us all about the island and also knew how to recommend where to eat a bite or where to take a walk. only flaw in thirasia after the long staircase the country was practically abandoned. sunset in oia beautiful and even that half hour that anticipates it you can turn quietly. highly recommended experience

Good value for money, enjoyed all of the activities and good variety. Nice food stop available and sunset was beautiful (but very busy). Overall a great day out.

Great cruise. Food was really tasty. Enough time at each spot to swim and enjoy the view. Crew was very attentive.
