We had a lovely time with Maria - we were lucky enough to get a private tour because we were the first of the new season. It was an excellent way to get to know the city and experience it like a local. Really tasty food and lots of interesting history. Thanks again Maria!

Our guide Tasos, was great. He asked our preference at the start of the tour, and was extremely knowledgeable of the town. He was able to explain the history and architecture to us. Only wish we had budgeted more time with him and in Thessaloniki.

The guide was excellent, she gave us a lot of information not just about food, but also history and culture. Thanks for the positive and interesting experience.
