Having been to Santorini (Kamari) several times we were looking for some new adventures. Our hotel owner told us about a new trip which had never been tried before. After reading the details, we decided to give it a go and I'm so pleased that we did...Our guide, Markos, who has now started up Santorini Experts, is the most enthusiastic guide you could ever have and Thirassia is a wonderful, totally unspoilt island to visit and to see the sunset from there is quite remarkable.
The trip involved donkeys to the top of the island and a walk through the most authentic greek, totally unspoilt village and then a healthy walk down the other side, passing caves built into the mountains until you come across the most beautiful church and a tiny winery. We were met there by Thirassia's 'Pope' who explained through Markos, the history of Thirassia.
We then ate souvlaki, olive bread and drank some wine while we watched a wonderful sunset (you could almost touch it). We were then driven down to the port where we sat in a wonderful taverna whilst we waited for the boat to take us back.
I'm off to check out santoriniexperts.com to see what other trips Markos has come up with. He's great.......Markos we're over again in July so we will be in touch.
