Wonderfully relaxing day

We really enjoyed this trip, and our guide George. Of course we wanted to stay in the baths longer, but it was perfectly timed in reality. We spend 2 hours total, enough time to enjoy the bath, have a coffee, and change our clothes. Getting there in the morning made it not so crowded, and we left just as some large groups arrived. We also enjoyed Edessa, a beautiful, small city with the waterfall and stunning views. I normally do not enjoy mornings, but the timing was wonderful and not so crowded. I would like to take another trip with George because he was so intelligent and handsome , but sadly we have no more time on our holiday.

The baths and the waterfalls at Edessa were sensational, however, due to the fact that it was a public holiday there were not enough places to sit down in Edessa for lunch. Unfortunately this was not coordinated well enough by the tour organisers to conduct a prior consultation with a restaurant so that the group on tour could sit somewhere and have a lunch. Explanation with the use of lockers and change rooms at the baths was not explained well enough. There was some guessing work that had to go in this. The bus was comfortable and air conditioned, overall a very enjoyable day spent.
