Fabulous Tour on a Luxurious Boat and as a bonus with the best meal we ate in Greece!
Jun 2021
Exceptional hospitality, attention to detail, and luxury treatment. Athena the boat owner, speaks great English, is extremely knowledgeable of Santorini, its history, the various landmarks and volcano. She made us a beyond wonderful dinner, cooked fresh on the boat as we drank wine from the grapes on her property. She grew all of the vegetables she cooked and was very patient listening to us and coming up with a great meal-despite how finicky we are. There was everything we could have wanted to drink from water, soft drinks, juice, beer, wine or cocktails. The boat is captained by her husband and he was a great driver. Both practiced Covid precautions . We stopped and got to swim on Black, Red and White beaches, made a special stop so we could swim to a pool inside a rock formation. The boat is beautiful, and our comfort is their top concern. The private tour customized for us was wonderful. I can not detail just how nice every moment was-you won't be disappointed. It was a tour of a lifetime! We made good friends-and Athena has even prepared cooking videos to show me how to cook the wonderful meals she prepared-the food was that good!

The best experience of my entire life
Aug 2020 • Couples
This private sunset boat trip was by far the most brilliant, exceptional experience I have ever done. Starting off with how kind, friendly and welcoming the owners of the boat were. They went above and beyond to ensure we was happy at all times! Starting off with the most delicious fresh fruit platter and the most refreshing drinks, everything they did for us was to a brilliant standards. The boat trip was everything and more we was hoping for, the sea was so clear which meant we could swim so freely. We visited lots of different beautiful islands of which the owners knew everything about! We had a real insight into the history of Santorini. For our dinner we was provided with a delicious fresh Greek traditional dinner which we was highly impressed with. We had watched the sunset from various points of Oia however watching the sunset from the boat in the sea was an experience I’ll never forget, We managed to see it right down until the last point, it was beautiful and rich in colour which illuminated a path across the water. I would recommend this trip to absolutely anyone, it is worth every penny you will not be disappointed. It was also my birthday and the owners went out of their way to buy me a delicious birthday cake with personalised candles, we couldn’t have wished for a better experience.

Private cruise (Charlie)
What a experience, from start to finish it was amazing. A special thanks to Fitrou and christos for making you feel at home and comfortable from the get go, this experience wouldn’t be the same without them. I would recommend this to anyone. The food was second to none and was just as good as sitting in a restaurant!

Great end to a great holiday
Aug 2020 • Couples
Really nice experience. Glad we went with a private boat. They took us around the different islands including the old and new volcanos within the caldera, stopped off twice to get into the water, and had a nice cooked lunch. 5 hours was the perfect length of time. Out of the different companies we saw online Athena volcano seemed the best value for money.

Beautiful Sunset Cruise
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I took the 5-hour sunset cruise with Xristos and Athina. It was far greater than we could have imagined. As our trip began, we were treated to water and then delicious wine. Shortly after, Athina delivered a refreshing fresh fruit salad while we spent time at a black sand beach (don’t forget your swimsuits 😊). As our tour continued, Athina was knowledgeable about the geology of the volcanic islands and surrounding waters. Later, as we enjoyed the sun on the front of the boat, an incredibly delicious meal was prepared for us. The dishes were prepared from recipes of Athina’s grandmother. Xristos was an exceptional captain and timed the cruise perfectly so we could enjoy the tour as well as the beautiful sunset. This is definitely worth the cost over the mass-marketed tours. The memories made in this personalized tour are well worth the cost. We will be back!!

PS. Do not make dinner reservations for after this tour.....there is no more room in your belly 😊

Thank you to Athena and Xristos for a gorgeous day cruising the waters surrounding Santorini. A perfect way for us (2 couples) to take in the different perspectives of the island and enjoy amazing freshly cooked organic Greek cuisine prepared with love and plentiful local wines. Highly recommend!

Terrific Sunset cruise - highly recommended
Sep 2018 • Couples
Best decision we made when we decided to book our sunset cruise with Athena Volcano Private Cruises. Our hosts Athina & Xristos were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The sights were a completely different perspective of Santorini, the home cooking was fabulous and the sunset was spectacular! We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them!
