WE enjoyed the tour a lot, it went well after the initial confusion with which bus to get on in the morning, as there were different groups. The driver had a bad day, so his people skils were low.

Otherwise good value for the full 9 hour including Oia.

THE WORST COMPANY TOUR EVER! They didn't show up the pick us and after almost an hour our hotel called then. They said a mistake had happened and asked to book for the next day. The next day we called then again to check and everything was ok. But anyone show up AGAIN. Now the hotel driver is taking us to the boat to try to get it in their on time. DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY! EVER!!!
And it only got worst...
The boat didn't let us use the life guard in the water. And you could only live the boat if you know how to swim (very well). But this information was not given to us when we bought.
To get worst, the tour included the sunset at Santorini but the bus to the hotel left BEFORE the sunset ends. So why did I paied for it????
So again, do NOT buy from this company.

I really enjoyed this trip. I've been on various other trips during my travels and this was one of the best, both for value and content (Thomson offered a half day trip only including the Volcano and Hot Springs for more than Greeka charged for the whole day!)

Our guide was lovely, spoke an impressive number of languages and was very patient. She knew lots about the Islands and answered lots questions. The walk up the Volcano was hard in the heat, but worth the effort. Swimming in the orange waters of the Hot Springs was an experience and great fun.

Some people may not like being on a boat with other nationalities, but I really enjoyed it. Even when we didn't speak the same language, we all managed to communicate with sign language, smiles and laughter.

I am heading to Corfu in 2016 and will be booking Tours with Greeka again :-)

Hi, I'm Lauren, 20 years old American. I've been to 15 other countries and this summer I visited the island of Santorini in Greece. I went to a tour that was advertised on the island, to the Volcano, the Hot Springs, Thirassia and Oia.
We left at 10:45 on a sailing boat and then on a bus, from an easy point to find, right on time. The trip was comfortable, with food and drinks offered, not crowded and with good ambiance. We had a really great guide who was speaking clearly in English, French, Spanish, German and probably Greek. The staff I must say was really polite and professional.
We hiked up the Volcano, swam in the Hot Springs, had lunch at Thirassia, and headed to Oia to watch the sunset. I've never attended similar tours and if I had to rate this one; I would say 8/10 for the organization and the quality, and 9/10 for the interest of the tour, even though I don't think it would interest kids or the elderly. It wasn't an authentic experience, neither a staged one. I wouldn't know how frequently the locals would hike up the Volcano, swim at the Hot Springs, and go to Oia to watch the sunset.
The price was very good, and I wish we had more time for each place. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Category: Santorini S08 Volcano Thirassia Oia


Hi we are Daniel and Sari and we are 26 and 25 years old, from Finland. We've been to ten countries and this summer we went to Greece, on the island of Santorini. We went on a tour to the Volcano, the Hot Springs, Thirassia and Oia, because at the siesta no other tour agency was open and this company we went with had a very good service at the harbor.
We left on a sailing boat, from an easy point to find, with no delay and we received an excellent welcome! The trip was comfortable, not crowded and with good ambiance. We had a guide who spoke clearly in English, French and another language we don’t speak, probably Greek and all of our questions were answered. All the staff was very polite and professional.
We saw the Volcano, swam in the Hot Springs, saw Thirassia, and then Oia. The service was wonderful and we really liked seeing the Volcano and the Hot Springs. The only thing we would recommend to change has to do with the Volcano’s enter price, 2 euros, that could have been prepaid when paying the trip.
The tour lasted for 6 hours, and we’ve never attended similar tours. We would rate the organization and quality with 8/10, and the interest of it again with 8/10. It was an authentic experience, with a good price, and very interesting to kids and the elderly. We would definitely recommend it to others.

Category: Santorini S08 Volcano Thirassia Oia


Hello, I'm Katie and I'm English. I'm 19 years old, I've visited almost 10 other countries and this spring I went to Santorini Island in Greece.
I decided to go on a tour to the Volcano, Thirassia, the Hot Springs and Oia, because it was the least expensive and so suitable for my budget.
The departure point was exhausting, but easy to find. We received a warm welcome, and weren't delayed for any reason. We went by a small ferry and our trip was really comfortable. The ambiance of it was good and it was reasonably crowded. I just wish we were offered food or drinks during it.
A guide was included that talked in Greek and English clearly, answering all of our questions. Everybody of the staff was very helpful and polite.
I liked the tour very much. We swam with jelly fish and walked around on the Volcano. The only thing is that I would have liked to have been warned about the jelly fish before I came. The thing that impressed me the most was the beauty of the scenery. The whole tour lasted for about 6 hours.
I've attended similar tours in other countries, and I would rate this one with 7/10. The organization and quality with 9/10 and the interest of the tour with 7/10. I think children would find it interesting, but not the people of the third age. It was an authentic experience, with average money, and I would recommend it to others.

We decided to go on this particular excursion as it was advertised on the island and the lady at the reception of our hotel proposed it as one of the top activities of Santorini and said it would surely be worth doing it. We found the departure point very easily; we received a very warm welcome. The lasted about six and a half hours. We visited the volcano, swam at the hot springs, walked all over Thirassia, ate at Thirassia, took pictures of Oia and finally returned back.
We enjoyed the whole tour of the island; the villages that were built on the hills were amazing! The staff was very helpful and professional and was willing to answer all our questions. Our guide gave us plenty of explanations and information on the sites we visited. The excursion was of particular interest to us. We would surely recommend it for other people of our age, and for elderly people as well, however, it would be a little tiring for a child. We had a very comfortable trip on the traditional boat that transported us to and from. What we liked more was that this excursion was far from being tourist-oriented, and as a, Greeks, this is really important! It enables the traveler to live an authentic experience, although we'd prefer it to have included more beaches in the tour. It's a good value for money, but being students, we think there should be special prices or discounts for certain groups of people such as students, elderly etc... The overall quality or the tour in comparison to others we have made in other countries was very good; we'd rate it with an 8/10.

Hello, we are Nicole and Chris .R, we come from Australia and our ages are 32 and 37 years old. We have visited 5 other countries and now we're in Greece, on Santorini Island. We wanted to go and see the active Volcano, Thirasia and Oia cause Chris had done it previously, some years ago. At 11:30 AM, we left on a small ferry, to visit these places. The departure point was very easy to find, there was no delay and we received a warm welcome.
The trip was comfortable, but there were no food or drinks. We really enjoyed the ambiance during the trip which was very casual, a slow-good. Also it wasn't so crowded. The guide was included and the explanations were in English, French and Greek. We thought they were very clear and all of our questions were answered. Also the staff was very helpful and polite.
We liked the tour but they should maybe include a provided lunch or drink and make it better know about the 2 euro island entrance fee. The Volcano despite all these of course was very impressive!
The tour was more or less 6 hours and because we are experienced by previous tours in other countries we would rate this one with 8/10. The interest of the tour again 8/10 and the organization and quality another 8/10. We really don't think this tour would be found as interesting by children or third age people but we thought it was good. About the money, maybe it could be less expensive, but all in all it was really good.
