What people are saying about Thessaloniki
Our driver, George, picked us up at the arranged time and drove us safely to our destinations. He is a very safe, patient driver with good historical knowledge which made the trip more interesting. The museum at Pella was well laid out and contained many interesting artefacts and mosaics. Museum staff were very helpful and friendly. Sadly the excavation area at Pella was not quite as good as others we have visited either due to lack of money or poor excavation. There is the potential for improvements for the benefit of visitors should the museum wish to make them. Vergina was amazing. Nice little town with an awesome museum. Not seen one like it before. 2 great tombs surrounded by the museum within the tumulus. Highly recommended to anyone interested in history. Lunch in Vergina was well priced and enjoyable.
An amusing and knowledgable courier who guided us smoothly throught the major sights. The order of the visits was sensible, with the most strenuous first. Each of the abbeys was special in its own way: whether it was the remarkable frescoes of the Great Meteora, the more intimate Varlaam abbey or the lovely formal gardens of St. Stephens. Varlaam paid somewhat more attention to the visitor experience with, for instance, appropriate music playing in the antechurch and clear walkways to help visitors move around smoothly. Our courier was careful to make sure that the group were briefed on eating and drinking needs. The supply of water bottles were very welcome.
Alltogether I enjoyed the trip, the drive was long, but our guide was giving us information on the Mount Olympus we passed, How its related to the God Zeus and How Alexander the great assembled his armies. I enjoyed the trip and the Beauty to see in Greece. A really good opportunity to Escape The City Life and see something breathtaking in nature. We went to 2 Monasteries as promised. And in between we went to a really nice Spot to take pictures. It was basically the highland of taking pictures. The guys should make sure to wear pants for the monasteries, based on their religious beliefs.
Meteora is amazing place to visit, but it is best to rent a car to go there. This tour is ok, but the guides are not telling much and not very motivated. We visited only 2 monasteries and lunch was very late! They don’t tell the schedule in advance, which did not help to preare best for the trip. They only make one stop on the way and there is no toilet in the bus. The lunch was very basic and small portion, so take snacks.
I spent a lovely day in Meteora with a small group. The guide explained a lot. It was great to be in a small group this we were very flexible and got to get lunch in a family restaurant instead of a tourist spot. The tour should not be offered bilingual. Lot of explanation was in Greek which made the rest of the group just stand around waiting for the English part
