This tour proceeded exactly as described. We arrived on a cruise ship and showed our voucher to obtain tickets right at the old port dock. Our tour was much less crowded than a similar tour on a different boat. The bathroom was gnarly though. The volcano itself is somewhat underwhelming -- a 25 minute hike up for one spot which smells of sulfur and smoke coming out. However, the views of the Santorini basin from the top are amazing. The guide provided a description of the history of the eruptions that formed the area before we went up. My husband and son stayed on the boat but my daughter and I swam to the "hot" springs. I suggest jumping into the water rather than climbing down the ladder as it was still cool in mid-May. The boat offers pool noodles to assist swimmers who are not as strong.

Hot springs and jumping of the boat! The hike up the volcano was fantastic, the tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history of the islands. The crew on the vessel where very friendly and supportive to all guests.

Unfortunate
Monika_T

We were excited to enjoy the tour, but the information included in the details on the website mislead us, and, unfortunately we never did it. The walking option to the port is not 20-30min as it is stated, rather 40-50. Even if you are fit and used to activities. Also, make sure to wear sneakers, bring water and count on at least 700 stair steps down the caldera on slippery hot rocks and donkey poops. It’s an achievement by itself, but leave on time not to miss your tour as we did. Hope the minutes get adjusted online.

Volcano springs were great. It must get very busy in high season. All felt a little impersonal. The boat was.clean and well maintained. It could have been better signposted on the dock where to collect the tickets.

A nice boat ride from the cruise ship dock. A good hike to the top of the volcano. Fun at the hot springs where you jump off the boat and can then swim to where the mud is. Fun for all ages. My wife and I are in our 70's and we were swimming with teens and young couples. Fantastic scenery!

Nice excursion, but very crowded
Stephanie_N

We have a nice time going to the volcano. The hike is pleasant and not too hard, and the guide's speech at the summit was interesting. I'm glad we could spend some time by ourselves to walk around the beautiful summit, as the rest of the trip was very crowded (I didn't think they could fit so many people on this ship!). The swim in the hot pool / mud was fun, although a little cold in April. On a side note, my boy-friend left his jacket at the top of the mountain. The guide and company were helpful in trying to find it (but sadly didn't).

Volcano hike was good. Hot springs is only accessible after a short swim in the cold sea. People did not seem to know this, and more than half the boat decided not to go down because of this. Pool noodles were provided but it would be better if the tour provided life jackets to allow everyone to enjoy the springs at ease. Also, the springs is not that warm.

Will never use Santo Star Travel or Viator Again
Nicholas_S
, May 2022
Awful instructions. They tell you to redeem at the boat, then in another part tell you to redeem and Santo Star Travel. If you make the mistake of follow the "how to redeem" section you'll be disappointed to learn you actually need to go somewhere else way back at the top of the cliffs. Then if you complain because of this they will lie to Viator and say the office is near the boat. And Viator will believe them. Don't book this trip or use Viator, there are several better options you can book directly.

Petty standard tour.

Pretty standard tour. Shows you the volcano and allows to jump off boat and swim. BRING CHANGE of clothes and towel. Wind makes it cold. The cable car costs 6 euro and requires masks.

A good quick hike with amazing views and history! The water was too cold, for me, for swimming to the hot springs but that’s a seasonal problem. (I did it a decade ago)

This was a lab excellent quick activity that didn’t take up too much of the day. Keep in mind the Hot Springs are a very cold swim before you get to the thermal part. The volcano views are excellent.

This was fun! The volcano hike was one to remember! It is very affordable too. 3 hrs and back and you still have the entire day to do stuff. All the details on how to get to the port were easy and accurate. Highly recommend!

Great experience, the staff on board are very friendly and our guide Dimitra explained very well the history of what we were looking at. The hot springs are not really hot, however even though we went in April the sea was very nice after getting used to the initial temperature. Definitely worth it!
