Full description

Explore the highlights of the volcanic island of Santorini with a cruise to the three islands of the caldera as well as a popular sightseeing bus tour on the second day. Start your first day by setting sail for the lava islet of Nea Kameni. Once there, walk an ascending path to the crater of the still active volcano to enjoy incredible sights for 1.5 hours.

Return to the boat to sail to the second lava islet, Palea Kameni. Jump off the boat and dive in the islet's hot springs, with green sulfur waters and warm therapeutic mud. The last stop of the day is the traditional island of Thirassia for 1.5 hours of free time. On your second day, take a bus tour around the entire island. Visit the archaeological site of Akrotiri. Walk in the Emborio village, swim at the Perissa beach, and taste local wine at an awarded winery.

Marvel at the views from the Profitis Ilias mountain top. Experience the famous sunset hour in Oia Village.

Great regatta-style boat tour, very good Ulysses guide speaking several languages and knowing the subject very well on the volcanic island, magnificent landscapes, ascent of the volcano, stopover in a small typical exotic sailor's village, swimming for those who wish by against jewelry and white or quality swimsuits not recommended because there is a risk of being stained by sulphurous water. The brilliant bus tour Christine has found her way as a guide, listens to a lot of knowledge, very professional, I recommend her. Visit archaeological museum, old village stroll in the streets, small typical fishing village for lunch, wine tasting and museum visit recommended, to finish splendid sunset in Oia very beautiful village. Thank you for his 2 days

Very good excursions. Our bus tour guide, Lily, was super friendly, cheerful and energetic. She gave us lots of interesting information about the different places visited. The driver, Nikos, was very friendly and hats off for his exceptional driving on quite narrow roads that often look like they're not suitable for a bus. For the boat trip, it is also a thing to do. The hike on the volcanic island is quite impressive and the boat trip along the caldera is really relaxing and allows you to discover the island from another point of view. In summary, to discover Santorini in 2 days, I highly recommend this package which allows you to discover the highlights of the island.
