Zas Travel: 39 years in the making

A proud history

Starting in back in 1981, Zas Travel has been at the heart of Naxos Island life for a very long time. Originally based in Agia Anna beach, the agency moved to Naxos town (Chora) in 1983 before finally settling in it's current location in 1996 and in 1998 opening up the second and bigger office at the port.

We're very proud of our history and we know that we simply wouldn't be here were it not for our customers , especially the ones that call us by our first names and visit the island every year.

When you have a business on an island that's open the whole year - even when the summer tourists are gone - you need to offer the best service to stay afloat. That's our speciality. Going the extra distance.

Zas Travel also supports Naxian life by among other things, giving computers to the local schools, bed linen to the hospital and recently, personal protective equipment.

It's by being a key part of the community and by offering a level of service second to none that our customers, both from the island and abroad, keep coming back to us and over time see themselves as part of the Zas family.

Meet the team

At Zas Tours we believe that our employees are our greatest asset. We're a small team with two offices in Naxos - not just a soulless website. Our aim is to offer the best customer service you've ever received. We think our dedication to our customers is what makes a different. We hope that if you book with us, you'll soon agree.

I come from a small village here in Naxos: Kaloxylos. I came to Zas Travel to do my internship and I never left!

I am responsible for the websites. I come from England and I have been living in Naxos for the last 3 years. Despite my poor Greek, all my colleagues always try to understand me and are very patient with me. It's a great feeling working at Zas Travel. A family company with strong values.

I'm not from Naxos originally but I fell in love with the island and have been here for 10 years. I help in the office and specialise in help people with boats and yachts.

Loves travelling and new destinations

Even though I am the newest employee here at Zas I was welcomed as a family member and made to feel like an equal member of the team.

It gives me pleasure to offer something more to customers. A little more time to find out more information.

Loves the small villages of Naxos

Coming from Naxos and with a father who has worked almost his entire life at the port, it must have been my destiny to work at a travel agency. I love helping customers find the secret corners of Naxos and I also work with the Epxress Skopelitis boat which explores the less known islands of the cyclades.

Loves life at the beach

I grew up in the village Agios Arsenios. I studied accounting in Chios and then immediately started working here. I've never worked anywhere else and I wouldn't want to

Accounting has challenges that always keep me alert and I love my job no matter how demanding it is. I consider myself a member of the Zas family.

Love Naxos

I fell in love with Naxos as a tourist, until one day I decided to settle here permanently and built my life here. I work in Zas Travel for 3 years now and the fact that I can share my love for Naxos with other Tourists is why I love my job so much. I feel like Zas Travel is my second home, and my co-workers part of my family.

Loves all water sports

Being the son of the founder of the company, I grew up with Zas Travel. I'm now almost the same age as the agency.

It is an honor but also a great responsibility to continue my father's work. My goal is for Zas to always be a family business but also a family away from home for all our customers - old and new.
