Thessaloniki Airport to Oranoupolis - Taxi or Bus??

My daughter and her partner are taking an early summer break at the Akti Ouranouplois Hotel arriving on the 30th June. They have never been to this part of Greece and it is many years since I last visited the Thessaloniki area. What are the thoughts for the transfer from airport to Hotel...taxi or bus? What are the likely costs for either option?

Bus: First of all,take a taxi to Ktel Halkididis(the bus station for departures to Halkidiki) and then hop on the bus..More info here: www.ktel-chalkidikis.gr/index.php…

Taxi:Take a look here: www.taxi-thessaloniki.com/index-2_en.html

Fantastic stuff Grigoris!

They had already decided that they wanted to take the Bus to Oranoupolis...enthralled with my tales of some 30 years ago backpacking around the islands! So the heads up on a taxi to Ktel Halkidikis is useful. They were talking about bussing back, but I pointed out that a 2-2.5 hour journey to the airport with gates closing at 12.00 it would probably be more sensible to go by taxi! I think they agree!!

Once again thanks Grigoris...I may well be back to pick your brains again!!

We did the trip last September as far a Tripiti (for Ammouliani). The current bus fare is about 14€ one way and the KTEL Chalkidikis whilst being quite close to the airport involves changing buses to get there. Taxi more preferable. The published price for a taxi to Ouranoupoli will be about 180€ although it is possible to negotiate that down to about 140€ which is what we did. To Tripiti it took about 1.5 hours in the taxi as opposed to 2.5 in the bus. After an early morning start from the UK the extra cost of the taxi seemed worthwhile.
