This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Standing in the crater of a volcano was an awesome experience and a live one at that to. If you don't like rotten egg smells this is not the place for you and make sure you have footwear suitable for the walk down, so no flip flops!

I had a boyhood ambition to visit a volcano and this fulfilled it. Although the overall trip cost a few bob (return boat trip, bus to the crater etc.) the EUR2 fee to get in was ridiculously good value. There is not a lot to see in terms of information etc. but what do you need to know when the... More

Absolutely stunning views from the bus up to the crater. The whole experience is out of this world and is a must if you visit the island. Also the main town at the harbour has some lovely sights as well as some lovely restaurants to grab a bite to eat

May the best attraction in the island. Actually the whole island is an active volcano. You have the opportunity to pay a close visit. Try getting up a bit early, in order to avoid the majority of tourists coming by buses. 2 euros entrance totally worth it. Do not visit wearing your slippers, as it may be hot. Carry some... More

We arrived by boat to the harbour of Pali and hired a car for the day. The visit to the craters and volcanoes was most interesting and the brochures were printed in English, not always the case in Greece, so we actually knew what we were looking at. The cafe had everything you could need plus a lot of information... More

Wow!! Now i can say that i've been inside an active volcano. We booked this trip from a tour kiosk in Kardemena and we really weren't disappointed. The boat trip over take around an hour if i remember correctly and it was lovely to see the neighbouring islands. Getting to Nisyros we then had to pay a 2 euro fee... More

At the small harbour of Nisyros you can have a good cappuccino or Greek coffee at Ellinis or a good lunch. The owner is Australian and can advise you what to order as to not always eat Gyros and dolma. The restaurant Salinikios offers very good local food and the staff is also very friendly. You can rent scooters at... More

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.
