As for the service received, excellent. They even brought us to the bus station when we required it. Now, IT IS NOT A GUIDED TOUR. We contracted the service thinking that it was and we believe that the company plays with the misunderstanding, being a little ambiguous in terms of the explanation. Likewise, Nikos, our "tour attendant", went out of his way to explain many things to us beyond what he was supposed to explain.

The trip is efficiently organised. The tour guide is extremely well-informed and provided engaging commentary throughout the day. I was surprised by the quality of the collection in the Pella museum.

Two interesting museums as well as the archaeological site of Pella, which is also worth seeing. Our tour guide Lazarus was very, very nice and had a lot of information for us.

Verry exciting trip, the history of the places that we visit is really interesting and rich. Because of the guide that had a lot of knowledge, the trip was even more amazing.

Our guide Lazaros was very informative and was willing to suite our needs. Both places were definitely worth a visit.
