Follow steep paths and back roads through the island of Thirassia on a 5-hour, small-group tour from Santorini that explores the best of a picturesque, volcanic island. Discover a landscape of arid hillsides and villages that are lost in time, find abandoned cave houses and walk through terraced vineyards and local gardens. Arrive in a church courtyard for a lunch of homemade wine and traditional Greek food, then learn how Thirassia wine is made in a local, priest-run winery.

  • Small group ensures personal service
  • All-inclusive tour
Meet your guide at your Santorini hotel, and travel to the port of Ammoudi to catch a boat to Thirassia. Step onto the island at the port of Korfos, a seaside village that’s inside the volcanic caldera, then climb 180 steep steps to Manolas—for an additional charge, you may ride a donkey up the hillside. Get perfect views of the sea from the traditional community, where bougainvillea trees spill over the narrow, winding lanes and brightly-painted doors.
Pause at a local tavern to enjoy the shade and learn about Thirassia’s ancient past and culture, local farming and wine production, then hike through a series of vegetable gardens, trellised grape vines and wild herbs on your way to Akrilia. Trace a route through the eerie cave houses in a deserted village that was once the island’s biggest settlement, and see the Virgin Mary Church at the town center—you’ll arrive to a traditional Greek lunch and wines made by local priests.
After visiting the priests' winery, board a boat back to Santorini in the port of Riva and finish the day at your Santorini accommodations.

This was the best tour we had in Santorini. Our guide George was amazing and we had a awesome time and a great lunch looking at the caldera. Would recommend this trip in a second since we learn a lot about the island history and we have quite a few laughs together to pass the time when walking around. Please also be aware that this is a walking trip so do not complain when there
