History of Ιώ

Io, in Greek mythology, daughter of Inachus (the river god of Argos) and the Oceanid Melia. Under the name of Callithyia, Io was regarded as the first priestess of Hera, the wife of Zeus. Zeus fell in love with her and, to protect her from the wrath of Hera, changed her into a white heifer. Hera persuaded Zeus to give her the heifer and sent Argus Panoptes (“the All-Seeing”) to watch her.

Zeus thereupon sent the god Hermes, who lulled Argus to sleep and killed him. Hera then sent a gadfly to torment Io, who therefore wandered all over the earth, crossed the Ionian Sea, swam the strait that was thereafter known as the Bosporus (meaning Ox-Ford), and at last reached Egypt, where she was restored to her original form and gave birth to Epaphus.

Io was identified with the Egyptian goddess Isis, and Epaphus with Apis, the sacred bull. Epaphus was said to have been carried off by order of Hera to Byblos in Syria, where he was found again by Io. This part of the legend connects Io with the Syrian goddess Astarte. Both the Egyptian and the Syrian parts, in fact, reflect interchange with the East and the identification of foreign with Greek gods.

Pater

Friendly driver, fantastic to have a transfer from the airport to our destination with just us in the bus.

Apostolis

Excellent Tourism Professionals, competitive pricing, solid company, have been in the Cretan tourism industry for years.

Marza

Recently we visited the island of Crete, we had the opportunity to visit Elafonissi beach, a beautiful beach, clean water and a dream landscape. I would like to thank our guide Dimitris. An experienced guide, he has a lot of information about both Crete and Greece in general, but above all he is a man who works professionally.

Roberta

They try to organize the tours as well as possible, but too much time is lost in the various stops. The anti Covid 19 measures are not respected, buses too crowded with people without a mask, despite the obligation to wear them and guides who laugh and say “enjoy the tour”
