Our tour guide was nice and knowledgeable, but we found the whole experience underwhelming. The ship was packed and swimming in the hot springs was mucky and crowded.

A wonderful volcano tour

Excellent experience with a great tour guide. We enjoyed jumping off the boat into the hot springs for swim. The hike up the volcanic island was pleasant and easy (wear proper running shoes as it's rocky). The tour guide also provided a good history of the volcano along the way. Wonderful views of the ocean at the top of the island. Overall a great tour and I would highly recommend.

Fun trip but not for the unfit!

Overall a great trip which is well worth doing. I booked the 11 am trip which seemed significantly less busy than the 10.30 one which was a positive. The main highlight was the view from the top of the volcano back over Santorini. The swim in the 'hot' spring was brief but fun.

The boat ride over to the volcano had great views. The volcano tour was nice just very dangerous with all the rocks so wear comfortable gym shoes. I did not swim in the hot springs due to the sulfur

A little disappointing
Dana_P

The tour guide was excellent. We learned about the history of the area and everything we were seeing. The volcano was not too exciting, a little puff of air after climbing 1km was disappointing. The hot spring was warm compared to the cold sea water there, but it was orange and a little yucky.

I Went on this boat tour with my husband, had a great time! Breath taking views! I’m not much of a swimmer so I couldn’t make the most of the hot springs swim however I did attempt it with a float but didn’t go far from the boat. The walk up the volcano island was amazing, it was really hot and tiring but hey the views were worth it. To all the hijabis-I was able to use the washroom to change in to my Burkini for the hot springs. The entire tour was 3 hours which was just right. We went on the 11am tour which meant we were done by mid afternoon and had the rest of the afternoon/evening.

Very easy to access from cruise ship from Old Port. The tour guide was friendly and informative. The volcano stop was about an hour. The walk up to volcano was gravel and took about 25 min to climb with no shade. Spectacular views from the top. Thermal springs are in a different location (pictured). You get into the water about 50 meters from the springs then swim over to the springs (brown area in photo). You can use a pool noodle provided, but you need to be able to swim. This stop was 30 min. There are snacks available for purchase on board. Toilets are available on board as well. If you do not want to swim or climb, you can remain on boat. We had kids, adults, and some mobility issues, but all had a great time. Recommended!

Fun trip, hard to get to/from
Laurel_A

This trip was very fun but took some planning. We went in the morning and luckily there was no line for the cable car going down to the port. At the port there is a ticket office where you have to check in to exchange your online booking with actual tickets. Then we got on the boat and went to the volcano. Overall a very cool experience. I would recommend sneakers/comfortable shoes for this part. The water was too choppy so we did not get to go to the hot springs but did go swimming in a harbor which was still fun. We were able to leave our bag on the boat while we swam. Then we headed back to the port. The line for the cable car back up was probably over 2 hours long. We took the stairs up instead which took about 30-40 min. HOWEVER the entire staircase is covered in poop from the donkeys. They are also sharing the stairs with you and periodically came down the stairs in large groups and were not very well controlled/slipping on the stairs which was a little frightening and very smelly. Just be prepared for a long wait or a miserable but reasonably short walk up the stairs.

They canceled the hot springs visit just before boarding. That was half the trip and the main reason for taking the tour.

The volcano tour and guide were great. The experience needs a bit more explanation of what is expected in each portion, i.e. needing to swim to the hot springs, supplies / equipment to bring.

Good value! Theres about 30-40 people on the boat, which isn’t too bad. Tour guide spoke English well and had good info of the area. I think 3hrs was a good amount of time, and 30mins a good amount of time to swim too (was a bit cold in early July) and the thermal part was kinda cool but weird, not sure if I’d want to stay that long and destroy my swimsuit. They ran out of pool noodles when I had to jump in. Volcano was alright, lots of rock, but good views. You can watch the sunset from anywhere and it’s beautiful! So no real need to pay for the sunset cruise I reckon.
