Who we are

Visit Katakolon was established out of an enthusiastic discussion on a sunny afternoon. The topic of conversation was how to pursue one’s dreams in life and do for a living what you are most passionate about… The rest as they say is history.

We have a passionate team who are committed to provide the best private shore excursions for the cruisers arriving in Katakolon, at the best prices. We have certainly established a new standard for high-quality travel and excellent customer service in the area.

Our philosophy has always been: everything is possible! We have teamed up to provide visitors with top quality tours and a personal touch.
