Santorini: Volcanic Islands Cruise with Hot Springs Visit
- Pickup available
- Duration options: 3 - 10 hours
We went for this trip while staying on Santorini with other 3 girl friends. The trip was very nice, it was totally worth it. Volcano tour was great, then the hot springs - actually we did not swim as you had to go from the boat just to the water and we were bit lazy, but it looked nice there, definitely take black swimsuit. All the info provided during the trip as interesting. Only one thing to mention - we had also booked additional trip to OIA, at the end when we finished the boat trip, the guide just said goodbye and did not say anything like "those who are going to Oia, please find your transfer here..". Actually we thought we will go by boat to Oia. As the info about the trip was not that very clear. But anyway, we found the transfer with no problems, but would be nice if guide mentioned that, that the boat trip is over and continue here.. Sunset in Oia and city, both were great :) Can only recommend this trip! THanks
A nice cheap and cheerful excursion to some good sights. The guide was fantastic and fluent in lots of languages. The volcano trek was interesting and the trip to Therasia was also good - climb to the top if you can as it’s worth the view. The hot springs are a little inlet on an island and are more luke warm but still good to experience. The only downside were some of the other passengers thinking they were above having to wear masks like the rest of us despite being constantly told to do so.
Great tour to go on if you want to see the other islands off Santorini. Transport picks you up near your hotel and takes you to the port. A short sail will take you to the volcano, where there is a bit of a trek to get up to the dormant crater. Then off to the hot springs, water was a little chilly during October. Lastly is a trip to Thirasia, where you can have lunch and explore the island. Before disembarking, the boat sails along the inside coastline from Oìa to the port.
The trip itself was awesome and the staff were great especially the tour guide. The only downside was the "hotel pickup". After booking we discovered it was not actually a hotel pick up but an 11 min walk to a landmark, the pick up was over 20 minutes late, and the drop off driver completely missed our stop, and we had go all the way around which delayed us by 15 minutes and he was not very apologetic
Good trip on a clean boat. The itinary was nice and the stops were the right duration. Only complain would be that i got the option with the oia sunset and the driver was rushing us a bit. Apart from that it was great. Note about the hot springs : depending on the weather/current there might be some jellyfish, so be mindfull of the warnings of the crew.
