Full description
Explore the highlights of the volcanic island of Santorini (Thira) in just two days with the two best selling tours on the island. Visit the three islands of the caldera on the Volcanic Islands Cruise on the first day, then join the most 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. Make a photo stop at Akrotiri and Red Beach. 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.

By this combo trip you may, literally explore the whole island within the 2 days. rest of the time we spent mainly at the beach. tour by bus was amazing because of guide, Kristina. Boat tour great by itself. Guide (forget the name, male) should be more structured and passionate. I would recommend this activity.

Took the two day bus/ boat package. The 1st day was the guided bus tour. Pick up at 10am & the whole day was a nice experience. The guide was knowledgable & very helpful. Finished the day late after the sunset at Oia and then drop off at our hotel. The next day was the volcano cruise. Pick up was earlier in the morning 8:50. First stop was at Nea Kameni with a trek to the volcano top. This was really interesting. After this the boat took us to Palea Kameni where we had the chance to swim in the the hot springs. The boat dropped you about 30 metres or so from the place and you have to swim, though they gave you floating noodles. After this we were taken to Thirassia for lunch and a trek to the top( We didn’t do it as it was very sunny). We played in the water. After this it got a bit tiresome as the boat went along the Caldera to show Oia & Fira before we reached the port. It would have been 5 stars but for this and the fact that I didn’t receive any information till I contacted the
