  • Very bad impression of dealing with ticket 3 euro, which does not correspond to any provision. Even the small pales with some cords were droopy. Another easy rude staff of non-existent Greek State from the splendours of nature who happened to inherit ...

  • Excursion to do only for 3 euros from 12 years especially since the small village with its port are really typical

  • If you want to see and experience different places you never add you to the program without thinking. Come up with your vehicle as soon as you get to the crater you receive from your nose after each step again alıştik the smell of bad Kong Adventure CCS.

  • Quite an interesting crater but very crowded. I suggest renting a quad to avoid the large tourist crowds that get send here via bus and also to explore the smaller craters nearby
  • Very unique place. The rocks and stones are yellow and red from the sulfur of the volcano. Climb down the crater!
  • I have visited this remarkable place twice and I could never visit Kos without making the journey to Nisyros and the volcanic crater. Nothing prepares you for the vivid colours and the smell. Make sure you wear sensible shoes and take plenty of water with you if you visit in the height of summer as the air temperature in the crater can be stifling.
  • I loved the place. It is a perfect combination of natural history, unique landscapes and vivid colours. I strongly suggest that you stick the main crater if you are with a tour bus as the time is never enough for both. Note that the second crater is not as safe as the main so use common sense when you visit. Avoid putting hands, face etc over holes where you can clearly hear if not see the gas comming out you might burn your skin or even faint. What ever the purpose of your visit, remember it is an active volcano, and it is a place of geological studies that take place all year round. There are a few red couloured stones placed in the crater and they serve a purpose. It not sensible to kick them, nick them, or play around with them, you will get fined and you will potentially ruin some research project that could be going on.
  • I've been to many volcanoes and this crater is one of the coolest ones!! You can walk right on it. Can see the steam coming out of the ground! Gorgeous isolated place!! Lots of information at the little "ranger" station/shop/cafe.
