Full description
Take the bus from your hotel to the port of Athinios. Then climb aboard the boat and start your journey. First visit the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Follow a bumpy trail to an active volcano crater. Then continue your journey to the island of Palea Kameni. The boat will take you within 50 meters of the thermal springs. Swim, splash or relax in the green sulfurous water. Discover the island of Thirasia, once part of Santorini before a volcanic eruption. On the beach you can swim, eat or explore the old village of Manola with its spiral staircases and quaint houses. Find somewhere to enjoy a snack or take a swim on the island's beach. Leaving Thirasia Island, King Thiras will sail under Oia on the way back to Athinios Port, where you can snap some wonderful photos of the cliffs and the breathtaking scenery. The tour continues with a bus transfer to Oia Village for the sunset. The tour ends 30 minutes after the sunset. You will gather at the pickup point in Oia where the bus will be waiting to take you back to the meeting point.

The transport was very vague and unclassified on boarding the ship. There was no information on the bus about where it was going. In the middle of the trip, the whole crew was left on the road without information.15 minutes later, another bus arrived with a guide. The tour itself, guided by a guide, was well executed!

I highly recommend this activity, all the support is well done, the French-speaking guide (Gustave) was very pleasant, helpful and with a lot of humor! I advise you to climb to the top of the town of thirassia, but it takes about 30 minutes during the day to have time to have a good swim. Top day!

We had a great day accompanied by a great guide Vaso. From the pick up in the morning at the foot of the hotel until the evening when we were dropped off at the same place. Everything is very well organized and you always know where you need to go. Volcanoes, swimming, Thirassia are worth the detour. Remember to take something to cover up as there is a bit of wind on the boat during the crossing. I highly recommend.
