What people are saying about Oia
Really you get what you pay for, well done for the organization! Knowing that you plan to add 5 euros at the entrance to the volcano park but it's worth the walk. The boat was spacious and very seaworthy (Hermes) The time allotted for the activities was perfect. Well coordinated shuttle bus transport
Dada was really good guide. Although it was a hot day, keep that in mind being sun screen and water. The breeze of the boat ride helped out. It's nice you get to jump in the water to cool off. The food was good on the second island at captain jacks. Would recommend to anyone!!!
I loved the trip! The hot springs aren't really hot and the Captain Joe Restaurant in Therasia wasnt good! The rest was great!
We have no regrets, one of the best decisions we have made on this trip.
