Wonderful day trip in a minibus. There is nothing that our guide Lazarus doesn’t know about the history of Macedonia, all delivered with plenty of humour. Pella was a sizeable and fascinating site, with a good museum, but the highlight was undoubtedly the artefacts displayed in the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina) – astonishing. And do ask to see the ancient theatre five minutes’ drive away. Overall, good value for money.
Excellent small group of only 7 plus guide. Everyone in the group were solo travellers, which was fantastic but probably not the norm. Our driver and guide Yannis (or Giannis? I don't know the exact spelling of his name) was great, very knowledgeable and gave general overviews and directions at the start each site.
Wonderful excursion! The two archaeological sites are absolutely not to be missed. The guide Lazaros, who also spoke excellent Italian, is very knowledgeable and passionate and accompanied us in the best possible way and with sympathy in these places of great charm.
Great tour of fascinating museums with our eloquent and extremely personable guide Lazarus! Thanks for this great day!
Really amazing trip and guide very friendly and kind. Definitely would consider another trip with them in the future.
