    Taxis can not take you directly to the cable cars. You will need to walk following the signs and asking locals. Cable car drop off is right outside the boat. Check in (don’t understand why you need your ticket printed) is a small travel agency directly behind the boat. Be mindful to be on time we left exactly on 10:29 for a 10:30 departure. Volcanoes are essentially a crater with small amounts of steam (no lava or hot temp around it). The hot springs are luke warm at best and you stay there for 15min. Beautiful last stop, make sure you don’t pack lunch as you have two hours there and nothing to do so lunch is a good idea. Overall the trip was as advertised and the ship crew were very friendly and helpful, just the sights were a bit average.

    For the price, the tour is more than expected! Great guide, for our tour there was too much wind and we did not make it to the hot springs but great improvisation, we went some other place!

    We were picked up late from the coach, and then when arriving at the port, we were unable to show a paper ticket of proof of purchase as we were unaware that anything needed printing out, so we showed the lady our confirmation email and she told us to wait at the side for someone to give us a paper ticket. We were not given one and we then saw the boat leave without us without any explanation. We then had to pay for a taxi back up to the town when the day we had planned had already been paid for (boat, coach). We requested a full refund.

    A decent experience

    , Jul 2022
    Overall, I'm glad we booked this experience, but it wasn't plain sailing. Having booked the option with pick-up, we didn't receive the pick-up details until very late. On arrival at the port, the boat allocation and boarding process was chaotic and stressful. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The walk on the volcano was fantastic. The hot springs were very busy, with several boatloads of swimmers arriving at the same time. Thirassia was lovely, although we would have preferred to have had more time there to explore. The guide more or less told us to stay in the small strip of restaurants at the touristic port as there would not be time to climb up the hill and be bck in time for the boat departing. Overall, not bad, but could be better

    , Jun 2022
    The three venues were fine and the timing was good. The climb up the volcano is not too strenuous for most people - I am over 60 and it wasn’t a problem. Do not wear thongs. Bring an old ratty swimsuit for the mud bath because it will get stained. Two hours in Thirassia is maybe a little too long. As reported elsewhere the boat was very full, but everybody did have somewhere to sit (just). For the price it was OK.

    Very busy, a bit boring
    Kate_H
    , Jun 2022
    The boat is nice, quite busy there was a lot of people so you don’t have too much room. To be honest the trip is a bit boring, everything is very underwhelming. The hot springs is more of a big muddy body of water- which does stain your swimwear/ towels. The volcano is a big walk and isn’t very impressive at the top.

    We had an enjoyable day. Bring water, sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes. Only attempt the climb up the steep steps of Tharissia town if you are fit. Walking in the midday heat is really tough.

    Great value! A great to spend a day in Santorini. We enjoyed jumping off the boat to swim in the crystal clear water and climbing up to see the volcano craters.
