Tour guide was very friendly and cheerful. Her English could be better. Both locations were fantastic but stops were little too short. It could be nicer if there was 30mins to 1 hour longer time in each places so we could explore more. Because at the restaurant in Edessa we had to wait for food longer than we expected, we didn’t have enough time to enjoy.. same at the Pozar. Being hurry during trip was abit stressful. Overall, it was worth it!

It was a wonderful excursion. After a 2 hour bus ride, we arrived in Pozar at the thermal baths where there are two natural pools (and a pool for swimming but which is filled with natural water). For each swim in a swimming pool it is necessary to count 3 euros. We stay about 2 hours on site which is more than enough to do 2 swimming pools, each for 30 minutes, and walk around a bit. There are places to change and toilets, but no lockers to leave our belongings. I therefore advise you to pay attention to it. Then, after about 40 minutes by car, we arrive in Edessa where there is a magnificent waterfall. We also have 2 hours on site where you can walk around and eat in one of the few restaurants. The guide is very friendly and present for any information. She makes a visit to Pozar to show each place and she also takes us up to the waterfall in Edessa.
