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 boat was filled to the point where people didn’t have a place to sit; and many were sitting in the sun where there was no shade. The guide was nice, felt like she had a script what to say and didn’t really elaborate beyond what she had to say. We felt very rushed, by the time we hiked up the volcano we already had to go down, and the hot springs was way too short. We paid for the oia sunset but ended up not going because we saw it the day before. All in all, the trip is nice for those looking to take nice photos, not so much for those looking to learn about santorini. Also; the transportation in the morning and evening was 15-30 minutes late

From the indicated point they take you to the port of Fira where you take a boat towards the Neo Kameni Volcano. On the boat they sell very cheap water, soft drinks and sandwiches. The ascent to the volcano is hard considering the high temperatures. You have the option to stay on the boat. Then there is a stop to bathe in sulphurous waters that may leave a reddish stain if you wear a light-colored swimsuit. Then stop at Therasia just to eat, a very typical Greek place. We took the option to continue with the guide to see the sunset in Oía. The return was about 21:30 at night.

I would recommend the tour, it is organized quite well and makes you visit all the places in the description even if the fast way. The only flaw is that it is a mass tour, too many people ... boat too full .. but okay, for the price it has, it also exceeds expectations ..
