A COMPANY WITH LOVE AND COMPETENCE FOR ITS BUSINESS
In 1960 a young bus ticket collector, employed by a local bus company begins his business career by purchasing 50% share in a bus, which is doing interregional routes. Gradually, the company grows with the acquisition of two trucks for the transport of goods and the purchase of two taxi cars and therefore provides services in the whole of Greece.
Already in 1973 the young entrepreneur forms the company MIDIA TOURS.
Having a feeling for the need at that time the company specializes in the transfer of employees to the largest industrial sites of the greater region in the mainland of Greece, with a fleet of twelve owned and eight rented buses. At the same time he organises tours to all regions of Greece, to the Balkan and to Turkey. In the year 1984 the company takes over the issuing of any type of tickets and also the exclusive right to issue the train tickets on behalf of the Greek national railway company TRAINOSE (ΤΡΑΙΝΟΣΕ) in the region of Livadia, a branch of business, which still is a major part of the company's activity until today. In 1987 the older son of the Founder Athanasios Liontos, Konstantinos, joins the team and buys the first double-decker bus in Greece at that time. His activities include among other things the transport of incoming tourists and various tours to the whole of Europe.
In 2000 the first branch office with its gas station for the supply of the company's buses and a private bus repair shop is established in Athens with a parking place for the company buses.
In 2005 the son takes over the post of the managing director from his father, who retired.
In 2012 the company expands with another branch office in Munich. The older son of the founder joins the company, from the United States who has been educated and a long-term multi-faceted work experience. In addition the grandson of the founder, Athanasios Liontos, steps into the active crew and thus the company is now in its third generation.
In 2016 we will have 48 years in the tourism industry and we feel the need to thank all of our clients throughout these years, who shared with us their travel experiences. Our anniversary will be the beginning for new friends, new trips, for more experiences and for moments of relaxation and well-being.
