We were accompanied on this beautiful tour by Mirjam (Maria) a wonderful, passionate and very interesting guide, you can see that she loves her job and also her city. He told us not only about the food but also about the history of Thessaloniki around the open markets and around. He offered us refined delicacies that are not found everywhere. The group that took part in the tour was very diverse, funny and pleasant. Normally the tour is done by bicycle but being a large group it was preferable to do it on foot, perhaps better because you can capture many more details. It was really a pleasure to meet Maria and spend this moment with her and the group. Finally, I would like to underline Maria's thoughtfulness and attention to my food intolerance: she took care to let me find an alternative to what I couldn't eat, I really appreciated it. Thanks for everything. Highly recommended experience!!

It was a great day with Nectarios. He told stories and talked about Greek history on the way. We visited charming villages, special places, buildings on the way. Had a delicious coffee and lunch on the tour. Time was running with him - wish would kept this day longer! We enjoyed it very much!!!

Great! Beautiful and comfortable, highly recommend to all (families, couples, small groups of friends).

Very interesting tour walking in the city, joyful and useful! Highly recommended
