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.

It was amazing, we received many nice tips from our guide and she even gave us an insight about the history, culture and not only about the gastronomy of Thessaloniki. We walked through the market and if we liked something, she bought it to us and explained the story behind. We tasted Greek coffer, many pastries, sweets, olives, feta, fish egg cream etc. I totally recommend it, it is worth the money, definitely!

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
