Excellent well paced tour. Punctual pick up, comfortable journey. Excellent sites. Would definitely recommend. The guide was very clear and knowledgeable about the sites we visited and she spoke lots of languages fluently, she was very easy to understand. Also the lunch stop had good food!

A really nice trip, despite it being a quite hot and humid day. Our guide Nikos, explained everything very well. There was sufficient time spent at each place. I recommend it to anyone with interest in archaeology and ancient history (even some pre-history) of the region.

The most perfect memorable day! Such nice and helpful hosts. To sum it up: Good company, fantastic food and a simply amazing vibe. Added bonus - we managed to see dolphins swimming with the boat!! A must when in Thessaloniki!

Our guide, Maria, was fantastic. She showed us the real, authentic Greek foods and she clearly knew all the local vendors. The food was delicious and plentiful. Wonderful experience that we would highly recommend.

Perfect. The tour guide was amazing. There was enough time for everything.
