What people are saying about Thessaloniki

We were accompanied on this beautiful tour by Mirjam (Maria) a wonderful, passionate and very interesting guide, you can see that she loves her job and also her city. He told us not only about the food but also about the history of Thessaloniki around the open markets and around. He offered us refined delicacies that are not found everywhere. The group that took part in the tour was very diverse, funny and pleasant. Normally the tour is done by bicycle but being a large group it was preferable to do it on foot, perhaps better because you can capture many more details. It was really a pleasure to meet Maria and spend this moment with her and the group. Finally, I would like to underline Maria's thoughtfulness and attention to my food intolerance: she took care to let me find an alternative to what I couldn't eat, I really appreciated it. Thanks for everything. Highly recommended experience!!

We were warmly welcomed by Rita. At the beginning she showed us a few shops where the locals shop. We were allowed to try everything there. She brought us some Greek specialties and homemade cakes, which was really nice. Then we walked through small streets where not much was going on, since mainly the Greeks go shopping there. We were never forced to buy anything, even if we tried something. The Greeks are very hospitable and we enjoyed our time very much. Always my pleasure. We can only recommend it.

Maria took us all over the downtown area and shared the history of Greece and Thessaloniki, as well as all the best food! She was wonderful and so was everything that we tried!

It was perfect and the Tour-Guide was very friendly and smart. It was a super Tour!

Very interesting tour walking in the city, joyful and useful! Highly recommended
