Pour remonter des Gorges et récupérer notre voiture, nous sommes passés par Sougia Taxi Super service ! Un Q7 vous attend dès la sortie du bateau avec votre nom. Conduite douce et climatisation sont un plus après cette fameuse randonnée. Le prix est très raisonnable. Réservé par WhatsApp des semaines avant sans soucis. Nous recommandons. Merci.

Service was excellent. Just in time, comfortable, fast, perfect for hikers to get back to Omalos. Highly recommended.


Nous avons réservé un transport pour 5 (par mail 2 jours à l’avance), et il nous attendait au port. Mary est très réactive, car nous avons pris le bateau plus tôt que prévu, et elle a tout adapté super rapidement. Formule très confortable après la descente des gorges, surtout avec des enfants.
