Full description
Starting by bus with pickup from your selected meeting point, you will arrive at the port of Athinios and board the King Thiras boat. You will then make a first stop at the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Walking up the soil path, you will approach the crater of this still-active volcano. You will then continue to the second volcanic island named Palea Kameni, and make a stop approximately 50 meters from the hot springs to dive into the green sulfur waters, or simply relax and enjoy the view. Following the hot springs, you will sail to Thirasia Island, another part of Santorini before the eruption of the volcano. You will stay in Thirasia for 2-3 hours, where you will have the chance to go swimming, have lunch next to the sea, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. Leaving Thirasia island, you will head to the port of Athinios. The tour continues with a bus transfer to Oia village for the sunset. Your tour ends 30 minutes after the sunset, at which point you will gather at the pick up point in Oia where your bus will be waiting to take you back to the starting point.

Great experience, but the itinerary should be updated

Great experience, pick-up from the individual meeting point worked without any problems, tour guide as announced in German, division of the large tour group and assignment to the respective buses at the end in the port of Fira a bit chaotic, the itinerary was somewhat different from the description, as the boat for the Watching the sunset did not moor in the port of Oia, but drove back to the port of Fira, from where it took the bus to Oia (reason: walk from the port of Oia up to the city is apparently blocked)

Too bad that so little time was provided in Oia and super much time in a fishing village where there really isn't much to do. For the rest a very nice trip!

Awesome guide - not so awesome tour

Spent way too long on a small fishing island with nothing to do...3 hours was too much when we could have spent more time in Oia instead. Climbing the volcano was nice, but be prepared ! It's steep ! Guide was awesome - funny and charming.
