The tour was very nice and interesting. Easy walk in the streets of Thessaloniki, seeing the beautiful market. Our guide, Elena was super nice and helpful. One note, the food tasting wasn't as we expected to be, in the market, but it was in a cafe of the hotel. Would recommend.

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.

This was the best tour ever.! Very informative and relaxing. We learned so much about the history of Thessaloniki.

Although the whether was very bad, it was totally worth it and i would do it again.
