A boat trip to Nisyros with company Sail Away was perfect! It was much cheaper than via our travel agency and we really like all the attractions it offered such as monastery, volcano and walking around the town. A true Greek atmosphere could be breathed in there.

An hour each way on the boat, some walking through the town, a visit to the small monastery, and something to eat, before the coach journey to the volcano. The guide, Costas, was brilliant. Very knowledgabe and kept us interested. A long day, but worth it.

Even though it is a bit ‘touristy’ it is still a day not to be missed if visiting Kos. It is easy to book in Kardamena, all the operators appear so stick to standard pricing, and the process from ferry crossing, volcano visit and return journey is straightforward and without hassle. Our trip included a visit to the village of... More

Nisyros is a quiet paradise. When many island resorts are being over run by tourists, traffic and commerce, Nisyros remains as an unspoiled haven of peace and tranquility. Nisyros possesses the clear water beauty of the Aegean sea coupled with a small village atmosphere. There are no busy intersections only small coastal and mountain roads.

We left 0930 from the harbour at Kamari Bay arriving in Mandraki around an hour later. (Who wears a watch on holiday?) The long haul up from the harbour was studded with stunning views. And. Then. You crest the volcano rim! Astounding! And this is just the start. I don't want to spoil the experience, suffice to say, wear decent... More

If you have the possibility to take a boat trip to Nisyros, a small island within an about one hour from Kardamena I would like to recommend that. We walked from the harbour into the small town/village called Mandraki which was very beautiful. Then we took a bus trip to a small village above the volcano from where we could... More

Very good day spent at the Volcano. The driver leaves you at the location for 50 minutes, as the fumes from the volcano may be sickening and poisonous. There is the possibility of walking inside the Volcano which is dormant, but active, but, BE CAREFUL, do not jump or run where the soil is soft or cracked, as the soil... More

The \volcano (crater) is a bit of a side show which takes 2 mins to see and get your photo's, however you are left there 45 mins to partake in the expensive refreshments in the only kiosk. The trip is saved by the visits to the village in the hills (sundays only and marked as 'special') and also near the... More

Great impressions! It is possible to look at volcano boiling as close as you want! The tremendous power of this place is really felt.
