During the summer months our agency organises daily excursions for the island’s guided tour to the following destinations:
Daily tour (available 7 days a week)
Embarcation on coach at 11:00 at the start of Tinos KTEL buses (50 m from Tinos port) and immediate departure for Saint Pelagia’s Convent where we stay for 20′. Saint Pelagia was the nun that Virgin Mary visited in a vision in order to indicate her where her Holy Icon was buried.
( If you wish to enter the convent you should be aware that entrance is only allowed to visitors who wear long skirts or trousers and have their shoulders covered . )
Next, we are visiting Volax village,which is situated in the heart of Tinos and it is built in a beautiful lunar landscape. Many of its inhabitants weave baskets. (20′ stop)
Our next stop is the picturesque village of Pirgos, birthplace of famous artists, painters and sculptors. Here you can visit the house where the world known sculptor Giannoulis Halepas lived but also the Museum of Tinian Artists. For those who do not wish to visit the museums we recommend a drink at one of the cafes at the beautiful square of the village under the marple tree. (1 hour stop)
After leaving Pirgos we reach the nearby settlement of Panormos where you can enjoy the beach and greek dishes at one of the taverns. ( Stop for 1 hour and 50′. )
Our following stop is the Museum of Marble crafts, a modern and very interesting museum which you may optionally visit. (Stop for 30′. )
Returning to Tinos town we are passing the village of Tarampados where we have the ability to admire the dovecotes that are built in this area.
We return and disembark at Tinos port at 17:30.
