The cruise in itself very good except that the guide in English was incomprehensible So we saw, very beautiful, nice, but absolutely nothing understood of what was explained The little swim break where everyone can dive from the boat 30 minutes is useless the Therasia break could be longer. The sunset very well.

We were extremely disappointed on day that our cruise was originally booked as bus didn’t arrive to pick us up at appointed place. We waited for 90 mins and as it was a present for a friends birthday it was most annoying! We were informed that it was a mix up with local tour bus. After a few phone calls we rearranged a cruise for a couple days later. Again bus was 45 mins late so we were very concerned and had to make contact with local tour operator but delay was due to heavy traffic this time . Once we boarded the bus and subsequently cruise boat ,everything was perfect. The crew were very attentive and pleasant,the meal very tasty and plentiful ,wine flowed,music great. Our swim in thermal waters was glorious,trip to volcanic island well organized and sunset amazing. Overall I would highly recommend it but please ensure better coordination with local pickup and update customer in this regard.

Lovely sunset boat trip :)

We had a fabulous afternoon. I would say one of the best tours I have been on. It really did exceed all expectations. The boat was not too crowded which was nice and the crew were very helpful and friendly. Picked up, dropped off at door of hotel. And saw a lovely sunset on our wedding anniversary. Would highly recommend
