Karlos is amazing! Communication was excellent using What’s App to arrange the meeting time/location. Our tour was customized to include food and places that were of interest to us. Karlos was friendly, personable, and very knowledgeable about the area which made the tour extra special and memorable for us. He treated us like family. We highly recommend seeing the sights around Thessaloniki with Karlos as your guide!

Although it was the first tour Eleftheria had done she not only showed us lots of places and gave us lots of information she also introduced us to some of the culinary delicacies of the city of Thessaloniki. We were forthright with some of the questions we asked but she wasn’t shy of replying. Had a wonderful time and she also gave us lots of suggestions for us to do with the rest of our time there.

I really enjoyed this visit, which mixed historical information and anecdotes with information about daily life. Dimitris is very friendly and I had a great time with him and his two friends. I know Thessaloniki a little better now.

Pol was a wonderful guide. He was very friendly and super knowledgeable about the history and sites throughout Thessaloniki. I would highly recommend the tour.

It was a great tour and Maria was a fantastic tour guide!
