We pride ourselves on the smooth operation of transfers. The transfer time from the airport to the port of Keramoti is approximately 15 minutes, followed by a 35-minute ferry crossing. On arrival into the port of Thassos Town, transfer times to the main resorts are approximate: Potos 1 hour, Limenaria 45 minutes, Skala Prinos 20 minutes, Golden beach 20 minutes, Skala Potamia 30 minutes.
Our coach supplier has a remarkable fleet of buses ranging from 30 to 70 seats.
We also value our excellent cooperation with the port authorities and ferry companies which play an invaluable role in the smooth operation of transfers. A dedicated member of our team is always on hand to oversee each transfer.
With a small convoy of jeeps, we will discover the hidden, inland of Thassos.
