A total must do to in Thessaloniki!!! Bring a towel if you dont want to rent one and a cellphone waterproof case so you can take photos by the waterfall. The tour guide was very informative and the driver excellent as we rode in rainy weather. The first bath is nice and gets a lot of traffic but make sure to head inside to the larger bath further down. It has access to the larger waterfall and it creates a separate mini thermal pool. So very soothing and a must to relax and enjoy. The walk through the second city was nice and there is access to some inside caves make sure to check out as well

Our trip was really made by our exceptional tour guide, Yannis. Crazy winter weather made it a wild adventure, only made more entertaining with his semi-local stories and unique perspective. Thank you for a fantastic day!!

Our guide was friendly and upbeat. Each location was beautiful and he gave excellent recommendations for where to have lunch, shop, etc. For any travelers in Thessaloniki, this is a must-do!

Laszlo knew a lot, said a lot, was understandable, drove well and changed the tour in consultation due to the weather. This is how you wish for an excursion. The experience was impressive.

Well organized trip to beautiful destinations. Eleni was very friendly and knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information with us. The transport was very comfortable too.
