We enjoyed our tour on the CitySightSeeing Bus. We stayed on it for the whole tour and then got off at Stop 1 to see the park and sea area around the White Tower and got back on and got off at the next stop for the Archeological Museum - which we really enjoyed. Then we went to the St Dimiterus Church and the Asian Market. Sadly, we both had leg injurys so we were not able to get to the Sofiya Church. Then got back on the bus to Stop 1 again to finish our day.

Best excursion you can get. Lovely guid Rita can tell you everything about Thessaloniki and about Meteora. She tried everything to give you value for your money. Excellent driver too called Tomás. The views at Meteora are breathtaking.

Archeological Museum we really liked. Great facility, good value, great displays and cimmentary.

What a great way to see the city and to learn about various landmarks. Highly recommend!

Well, I think it gives a very good idea of the city.
