A total must do to in Thessaloniki!!! Bring a towel if you dont want to rent one and a cellphone waterproof case so you can take photos by the waterfall. The tour guide was very informative and the driver excellent as we rode in rainy weather. The first bath is nice and gets a lot of traffic but make sure to head inside to the larger bath further down. It has access to the larger waterfall and it creates a separate mini thermal pool. So very soothing and a must to relax and enjoy. The walk through the second city was nice and there is access to some inside caves make sure to check out as well

We enjoyed our trip to the baths, the tour guide Yiannis was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were looking forward to the waterfalls only to be disappointed as there was no water. Yiannis the guide checked with his office who in turn checked with the municipality- they were informed due to works in the town they had to close the water. How can a waterfall be closed! Never mind it didn’t spoil our day and we got to meet some nice people.

Overall, we were happy with the trip. At the thermal baths you sometimes had to wait until you were allowed in, as there were Corona limitations in the number of people in the pools. We would have liked the stay in Edessa a little longer. But overall definitely to be recommended.
