While in Santorini, we did the morning trip to the hot springs and the volcano. The hot springs is not what you expect it to be. The water is maybe lukewarm and the sulfur or chemicals from the rock cause the water to be a brownish red, so make sure not to wear or white swimsuit or it will be ruined. Our tour only gave us about 30 minutes at the hot spring. Our boat was fairly large so they had to anchor quite a ways away from hot springs, so you had to jump off the boat and swim in, which was fine for us, but anyone that wasn't a strong swimmer ended up with only one or two minutes in the actual hot spring and then needed to start swimming back.

The volcano is neat to see but is also not what you probably would expect. There is no actual visual sign of it being a volcano (don't expect lava or a big opening to look down). There was one small area of sandy rock at the top that had warm sulfur coming out of it but that was it and there are larger craters or holes throughout. The volcanic island is made of really neat rock formations though and you have a great view of the other islands. So I would say it is worth going to see but don't expect something spewing lava out of it. It does involve enough walking up and down through gravel like stone, so wear proper shoes.

We enjoyed very much our volcano tour, altghou it's not that spectacular and the hike was longer and more difficult than what we expected (too hot at noon in August). But you don't get to walk on a volcano everyday. The black rooks and dried lava flows are impresive and give an alien world feel. I always wanted to see dried lava flows. I found them gorgeous. It really gives you a perspective on the forces of nature. But I think this site is more impressive for geology and geography fans, not necesarely for your average tourist, who might be disappointed of the "pile of aride rooks". Other than the black volcanic rocks, the volcano itself doesn't seem much now (only 2 small gas vents and huge dried craters). But the guide we had (Max) was very good and provided lots of info, in great English. This made the experience much better and we learned lots of new things. View is beautiful from the top.

Do not waist your time or money.
A huge disappointment, its just a craggy rock with zero to see or do when you step on.
The crater is not even a crater, its just a bit of a hole in the ground with a small flume of gas.
And a helluva trek to get to it !!!

Only good thing about the tour is that view from the volcano was amazing, But the walk on the volcano with sun on head is unbearable (no shelter - it's a volcano!!). Without a good walking shoes, life become even more difficult. Bring water & sunblock as seen people fainting. (visited in July, 2016)

We did this as a part of an organised trip and it was great to get active on the active volcano and learn about what Santorini was in the past, the current dormant status and what may happen in the future.
