Being a small city, Volos’ tourism unlike Athens, cannot sustain daily large group tours for all the destinations that are available in the region. As a result, our tours are private and can be fully customized. We try to keep the cost of your private tour as low as possible while providing you with the best travel experience possible. We can work together to design the tour that best fits your interests, your budget and your time schedule.
Below is a list of Pelion villages tours that we recommend for Fall 2018 starting with the shortest, easiest, and least inexpensive tour and moving to longer or full day trips. All tours start and end at the port of Volos. For our transportation, we collaborate with the best professional drivers in the area and have access to a variety of vehicles (taxi, mini-van, mini bus, bus).
