What people are saying about Thessaloniki

We had an unforgettable day sailing to Shipwreck Bay! The captain is a very friendly, accommodating and funny man who makes you feel safe and made us a super delicious lunch. From the boat we were able to swim to the beach, snorkel and explore the shipwreck. Afterwards there was still time to sunbathe and swing from the boat with the "liana" - a perfect trip that is absolutely recommended.

We had a wonderful, varied day. The guide spoke perfect German. We got a lot of background information about the country and its people. We were always free to choose what we wanted to do next. Picking up on Sithonia wasn't a problem either, the route was simply adjusted. For us a perfect vacation day. Absolutely to be recommended.

It’s great to explore different aspects of the city, not monuments. This was an eye opener to a lot of things.. how locals eat,,where do they shop .. our guide was a lot of fun and interactive. An interactive tour is so much more pleasant and informative tgan a static one!!!

Ms. Maria did a great job customizing our tour to interests and have just enough history to keep us interested. Highly recommend her and her tour.

We had such a great time. Makis is a fantastic host. Lovely boat, perfect weather, awesome food. Thanks so much guys!
