Are you getting excited?
We already are! Let one of the bst thing to do in Santorini and our tour begin!
When visiting Thirassia is like traveling back in time. This non-touristic island is situated right opposite to Santorini and we reach there by the port of Ammoudi. SantoriniExperts will pick you up from your hotel and our transfer bus will leave us at the port of Ammoudi, where the shuttle boat takes us to Korfos.
We are heading towards Manolas village where you can ride on the back of a donkey up the 300 steps to the tavern Panorama, which stands to its name as you can see all over the caldera and the volcanic islands while having the first refreshment. After the short rest we wander through the main village of Manolas, we get to see a traditional cave house built in the porous pumice stone that covers Santorini and Thirassia and the school of the island. Then we will hike along tomato fields and vine yards and you will gain insights about the agriculture and the art of wine making. At the end of the path we discover a hidden cave house village and its beautiful church of Virgin Mary, which we are able to visit.
Now you have earned your traditional home cooked Greek meal, served in front of an old canava, with the priests’ house made wine. While enjoying our dinner it is time for the sun to set and so we can admire this sight in a very private and romantic atmosphere, before we will be transferred to the port of Riva, where we have time for a coffee or a last Greek Ouzo. As experts of organized private tours, we know the best spot in Thirassia where we can enjoy the mesmerizing sunset!
At the end of the day, we will be taken back by the shuttle boat to the port of Ammoudi where our ride to the hotel already awaits us.
