Booked this excursion through Sail Away in the main street of Kardamena. Left around 9am and arrived in Nisyros mid-morning. Coaches waiting to take us to the volcano (entrance fee 2 euro), where you can walk down to the surface and see small 'steam holes' emitting sulfur (yuk). Small cafe selling coffees, soft drinks and snacks. Next stop was the... More

It was my first volcano trip so it was very interesting and fascinating. I was there after a 2-3 hours of rain so the smell was a very interesting mix.

We were lucky in that we were the only coach, being the second last day of the season, so we had the site to ourselves. Great experience, even though I have been to other volcanic sites around the world.

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
