    This was one of the best experiences on our trip. We had a fantastic time and Dada was a great guide. Swimming to the thermal spring was my favorite part. Save your appetite for lunch on Thirassia - delicious food and tables right on the water. Opt for the full day if you have the time and go shopping in Oia. Then, have a cocktail while you you enjoy the sunset. 5⭐️

    The entire experience was amazing. I got collected a few minutes walk from my hotel in Perissa around 8:40am and they were very punctual with time. The bus ride on the way to the Port was scenic and beautiful. The bus also dropped me at the same location I was collected in at the end of the tour. Lea, our tour guide for the day was amazing and spoke English, Greek, French and Spanish (and possibly more) to accommodate everyone. She explained the history behind the Volcano and the hot springs where people got the opportunity to climb and swim. We then had 2 hours in Therisa where you can also swim, shop and get food. For the price of €40 (€45 if you want to finish with the Oia sunset) was incredible and I had already recommended it to new friends I met in Santorini. I would 100% go again, thank you.

    What an incredible experience! We are so happy we booked this cruise. Even my mother who is older and doesn’t like boats enjoyed herself! The staff is very friendly and our tour guide spoke like 4-5 languages! You have a chance to climb to see an active volcano and swim in thermal waters. Excellent tour!
