I do not believe it was a good use of your time or $ to climb the "cone" to get to the hole in the rocks. If you have been to Hawaii and visited the caldera you get a much better picture and idea of...More

We spent a brief amount of time in Santorini and completed a number of the "touristy" items. The volcano seemed very interesting so we decided to give it a go. Like any tour it is very linear and hard to get away from large groups...More

What a view and actually walking on a live volcano. Takes your breathe away. The village near the harbour is stunning too. Loved the boat ride across. A lovely day out.

Wonderful time on top of the volcano by enjoying an awesome view over the islands, the calderas and Aegean sea. Definitely a must along your Santorini itineraru

Firstly.. Wear decent walking shoes.. You are walking on lava rocks and pumice stones. Some people in flip flops or thin soled sandals.. Not a good idea. There is shelter at the first cone hole which is where I stopped. It's a hard climb and...More

The history of the volcano in the making of Santorini is interesting but is not on the 'must do' list. It isn't too hard to walk up but it is quite hot so take water. The view from the top is ok. We did see...More

On Sunday 23 September 2018 my husband booked a sail trip around the caldeira for my birthday. We were picked up by minivan in front of Sunbird Travel Agency where he booked the caldeira visit with dinner on board and sunset from the ship. One...More

I find it hard to believe that some people can take up to an hour to hike up the volcano. As a reasonably fit 67 year-old I timed myself - from the boat to the top took 16 minutes and without hurrying - just a...More

No- it is not. There are lots of steps with no access for disables. You might have to rent a car- however, their bus service is pretty good and cheap.
