hello, great DADA guide with explanations in English and French !! Even at the beginning of November, under a great sun and a water temperature that has dropped a lot, the bathing in the hot spring was felt well with 5 to 6 degrees more ... we have had a very pleasant day. Thank you for this great organization! Goodbye.

Very nice boat, the crew is very nice and the guide Dada made us have a great day. Access to the hot springs is by boat, after a 30m swim.

Hot springs visit was very short but the trip overall was amazing. Bring water!

an excellent guide and landscapes worthy of a postcard

Extraordinary landscapes. Another look at Santorini.
