From the indicated point they take you to the port of Fira where you take a boat towards the Neo Kameni Volcano. On the boat they sell very cheap water, soft drinks and sandwiches. The ascent to the volcano is hard considering the high temperatures. You have the option to stay on the boat. Then there is a stop to bathe in sulphurous waters that may leave a reddish stain if you wear a light-colored swimsuit. Then stop at Therasia just to eat, a very typical Greek place. We took the option to continue with the guide to see the sunset in Oía. The return was about 21:30 at night.

Very good excursion with our guide Cris who explained everything super well and in a pleasant and fun way. Important recommendations to wear comfortable shoes (sports shoes) to access the crater and to wear a black/dark swimsuit for bathing from the boat since the water contains a lot of sulfur and dyes the clothes, despite this, do not hesitate to jump and bathe in those waters . A great experience.

Very nice experience, worth the price you pay. For those who like to explore and get tired it is hardly the right activity. Well structured, super nice and friendly guide. Recommended!

Great trip, very reasonable price, loads to see. Beautiful islands and friendly staff all round: on the ship and coach. We really enjoyed it and our tour guide Vasso was amazing!

Very beautiful and impressive landscape. Well organized.
