OUR STORY


Marika Salamoussa founded Salamoussa Travel Agency back in 1988. It is the only travel agency in eastern Lemnos. For many years, Mrs. Marika provided high-quality services to the visitors of the island. 26 years of operations resulted in strong friendships and many happy clients. In 2014, Alexandros Alexandrou, the son of Marika, took over the travel agency and its new era began. Travel Lemnos Agency is the new brand name of Salmaoussa Travel. We provide quality services driven by the same passion and having the vision to host our clients in the best possible way. Besides the basic and important services of ticket reservations, car rentals etc, we created the Taste Lemnos project in order to enhance our services to our customers. Read more about it in the “Our philosophy” section. We are looking forward to hosting you as only the team of Taste Lemnos knows how.
