Eleni was our guide for three days -- Salonica, Vergina and Ioannina. Eleni does not include Ioannina as one off her tour destinations, but at my insistence, she graciously accepted to take us to there. It was an outstanding day. The drive was long, but Eleni is excellent at the wheel. And....we so enjoyed learning about the historical significance of the area. Eleni is intelligent, informative and....a lovely person!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Ann and Mr George, thank you so much for such a kind feedback! I wish you all the best!
We had an amazing time in Thessaloniki thanks to Eleni. The tour was so well organized to first give us an overview of the city and then walk around city center. We spent few hours with her and could keep going if the kids weren't too tired:-) She is so knowledgeable and chose interesting and fun points of interest. She was kind and very responsible. If we had more time we would have booked another tour with her. We highly recommend Eleni.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anat, thank you so much for your kind words! I had a great time with you also! I wish you have a great holiday in Greece and you come back another time! Ι will be very very happy to see you again! Have fun!

Eleni was very knowledgeable about the history of Thessaloniki and Greece. This tour was a nice mix of car and foot and was perfect for us. It might not be if you are not up for walking a few miles. It was a beautiful start at the top of the city (every Greek city has their own acropolis) to the finish down at the waterfront. Eleni made it a wonderful day!

Eleni was an absolute pleasure to have as our guide. Her passion for and knowledge of Thessaloniki is amazing. She went the extra mile to accommodate every request or question we had. We were a group of 6 and she arranged for an extra diver as her car is too small at no extra charge. We would definitely recommend her as an exceptional guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure to meet all 6 of you! I wish you all the best, to be healthy, happy and travel! A big hug and kisses to all of you!
We enjoyed very much our trip in Tesaloniki guided exceptionally well by the guide Eleni K. She prepared it very well detailed and was very sympathetic person with a lot of knowledge about her city and more!

Eleni had taken a lot of care in researching for our tailored tour to find a family member buried in the Military Cemetery in Struma, 1917. Eleni was excellent company, knowledgeable, confident and excited by our quest to find Great Uncle Arthur. She ensured that we had a rounded experience, a lovely lunch, historic city spots, a list of suggestions and the offer to contact her further if needed. We felt very welcome and keen to try out or visit things we hadn't thought of. Eleni was our perfect guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jackie and Angie, I can not thank you enough for your such good words! I am very happy you had a good time, me too! Being with you felt like I was out with friends! I wish you have a nice time in all your travels and your life in general! P.S Your film was really great, I look forward to your new ones! Please keep me informed!

Elani, was well prepared with information on the sites that we saw. She is a great guide and person, very knowledgeable and fun to be with. I would definitely refer my friends to her as their guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, i really appreciate it! I wish you the best!
Libbie HornUnited States
Our family of 5 had a wonderful tour day in Thessaloniki with Eleni. She went out of her way to accommodate us, including before our trip, and we found her tour to be the perfect introduction to northern Greece. She has excellent English, is full of information, took us to interesting places and oriented us to the city, made good recommendations for us. We all liked her a lot and whole-heartedly recommend her! Thanks Eleni!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Libbie, I am really pleased you were happy with the tour, I also enjoyed very much your company! Really hope the rest of your holidays was great and you will visit Greece again! Have a great day!
When we arrived to Thessaloniki we expected to discover how things were in the past since my father was born and raised here before WW2 and Eleni, with her vast knowledge and kind personality was successful to connect us to the era in the most interesting way through walking around they city, introducing us to new tastes, and connecting the history we were told with the present we saw in front of us. More than anything her story telling abilities made everything she said fascinating. Thank you Eleni!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Uri, I have to thank you because you were the most deeply moving tour i had ever... Also thank you very much for your nice comments! I wish, with all my heart, to your father, you and all your family members all the best!
Eleni was absolutely great- very knowledgable, professional, perfect English ( not to mention the Turkish ), very well planned routes and nothing was too much nor too difficult for her. All this is perhaps what you would invariably expect from a toursbylocals guide. But what puts Eleni in a league of her own is her personality- warm, outspoken and very passionate about what she does. Thessaloniki is a very nice city and we highly recommend this tour with Eleni!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh, i don't know what to say! Thank you so much for your kind words, i really appreciate that! I have to say that i was very pleased to meet all four of you! I wish you to be healthy and have safe and pleasant adventures around the world! Many kisses to you all!

Eleni was terrific. She was pleasant, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She made our day memorable and I would recommend her without reserve to anyone who wants a special personalized tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Stewart i thank you and your wife so much for these so nice comments! It was a pleasure meeting you! I wish you to be healthy and travel all over the world!
We had the pleasure to be with Eleni for 2 full days last week. Eleni is one of the rare gems who exude enthusiasm coupled with a genuine love for Thessaloniki. She has a subtle way of building an authentic relationship with her clients. This observation cannot be immediately measured, but in my humble personal opinion is ever present. I love the "real" tavernas you suggested and the impromptu visit to a vineyard. Ann is pleasantly surprised with your "owl gift". Thanks so much for a grand time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rod, It was my pleasure and it was great meeting you both! I wish you the best in all areas of your life and i wish you are always so enthousiatic and "travel lover"! My love and kisses to Ann!
Fred HoytUnited States
One of the delights of a delightful city tour was the guide, Eleni. Knowledgeable about her city, passionate about its history, she accommodated our interests and our needs. She was especially solicitous of my wife's limited physical abilities. Thankfully, she was also one of the great drivers in a parlous city. Thank you, Eleni.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments! It was a pleasure meeting you! I wish you the best!

Angela KillingleyUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful tour of Thessaloniki, Eleni could not have been more helpful. We got to see so much of the city, and experienced the true city of Thessaloniki. Eleni was great, and very informative, she gave us details on where we could eat, drink and also visit the next day. Thank you so much, we had a fantastic time, and would thoroughly recommend Eleni.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Angela, I am so glad you liked it! I was a bit anxious because you were my second tour but after a while i felt like i was out with friends! A big hug to Adam and lots of love to you and David!
Twyla SavianoUnited Kingdom
I contacted Eleni to arrange a private tour from Thessaloniki to Meteora (very reasonably priced). Eleni greatly exceeded all of our expectations! She was incredibly responsive, very prompt in meeting us & went out of her way to make sure our tour was perfect. She even arranged for us to meet a local guide to climb the cliffs (AMAZING). Eleni impressed us with her knowledge of the history of Thessaloniki. I will never forget our time with Eleni and recommend anyone wanting a great tour, contact her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Twyla and Joe, thank you so much for your good words! You were really great, very nice, kind and so amazingly generous. I was a bit anxious because it was my very first tour but you made me feel like it was a trip with friends! Every guide would like to have you as clients! I would love to see you again in a friendly base if you ever visit Thessaloniki again! Lots of kisses to both of you!
