I really enjoyed the day tour overall. I can recommend it to anyone who wants to see a bit of the area around Thessaloniki and at the same time enjoy a bit of a special kind of wellness. The stay in Pozar was long enough, almost 2 hours, to relax in the thermal baths and enjoy the atmosphere there. Then we went on to Edessa, where the group walked to the waterfall and then ate something in a stylish restaurant. Unfortunately, you had to decide whether you wanted to eat something or look at the historic city. The tour guide told a lot of interesting things about the history of the places on the trip. Unfortunately, you couldn't understand them well because of the pronunciation. Nevertheless, the tour was worth it.

Went on this excursion with the wife as we’re on our honeymoon and was absolutely brilliant if we were to come back to Greece we would definitely do it again. Our tour guide was lovely and was very attentive to any information we needed and wanted to know. We highly recommend it to anyone on holiday in Greece.

The excursion lasts 8 hours with 4 hours of bus and 4 hours of visits/free time. The guide gives us some information on the cities and places visited and always leaves us free time so we can do what we want. He accompanies us and gives us all the necessary information.
