Full description

Depart from the port of Kardamena in Kos and take a 1-hour cruise to the volcanic island of Nisyros. Upon arrival, transfer to a waiting bus that’ll take you on a short drive to the volcano. Listen to an informative guide along the way.

Get information about the volcano and the history of the island. Then, feel the force of the lava rumbling deep beneath your feet as you enter the volcanic crater. See the bubbling mud pools and steam geysers, and imagine that you have landed on the moon.

Return to the port and get the chance to wander around the town of Mandraki. After a short walk through the narrow streets of blue and white painted houses, visit the monastery of Panagia Spiliani, considered one of the most beautiful monasteries of the Greek Islands.

Make your way back to town for some free time for lunch (own expense) or do some shopping before boarding the boat back to Kos at 4:00 PM.

Beautiful town, a must visit if you are in Kos, and a visit to the volcano is also very interesting. Guide prepared and super helpful, the only thing I feel like saying is that it would be better to organize it at a time where it is not so hot, because touring the country at noon was very tiring. Despite this, I highly recommend you try it.

Basically this tour is including two things - Visiting Mandraki village - Visiting Nysiros volcano There were English, German, French, Italian tour guide but we were not informed so we couldn't get the information of isyros island The lady guiding us was organizing well. But she'd better hold placard indicating location like "Dolphin Square" or language like "German Speaker Here" or "English Speaker Here" not to make any confusion in the crowded area

Punctual pick-up via bus at the hotel, the ferry was also as planned after 1 hour on the volcanic island. Great and unique experience at the crater. After that we were able to explore two towns on the island. Of course with given time windows, but well planned. Then we went back to Kos via ferry and to the hotel via bus. Overall a very well organized tour that we can recommend.
