What people are saying about Hot Springs Palea Kameni, Greece

The tour was really fun, very organised and our tour guide Chris was very energetic, knowledgeable and helpful. Our bus in the morning was a bit late but other than that we had a good time. Everything else was on time, the boat wasn’t that bad as other reviews mention, yes some people sat in the sun but that’s because there wasn’t much cover anyway. There is bar on the boat for drinks and refreshments. I felt we had enough time to do all the mentioned activities, the sunset in Oía was spectacular, only thing you have to rush back to the bus straight after sun goes down as the streets are busy with tourists. Overall great experience

Vaso our tour guide was fab - very knowledgeable about the local areas and the tour on a whole, tour ran promptly and smoothly with an initial local pick up via coach/bus to the boat where we went through the Volcano, had the option on walking up it for €5, beautiful views followed by the hot springs, lunch in Thirassia - great recommendation of eating at the yellow building, we then sailed under Oia to take a boat/coach trip to be dropped off at Oia for a breathtaking sunset - sunset gets really busy as it’s popular but we had a fab fine celebrating hubby’s birthday xxx

Beautiful well organized day. We arrived at the appointment 10 minutes early and this allowed the driver to save time for the rest. Two things need to be improved though: 1- access to the big bus to Fira port is a bit confusing 2- it would be better to include the 5 euro entry for the volcano in the overall package. Otherwise, the organization is fluid with good timing and the guide Vaso was efficient, attentive and pleasant.

The tour guide (Voros) was very helpful and informative. She always make sure everyone is comfortable and safe and no one being left behind at the end of the tour. Very patient with the demanding day.

I can highly recommend all trips arranged by side Get your Guide
