My friend and I really enjoyed our day exploring sites of interest in the countryside around Thessolaniki with Eleni. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We spent a good nine hours together and had time to get into some good discussions, really connecting on a lot of topics. There is no way we could have seen a lot of those things if we had tried to go on our own! I also enjoyed practicing the little teeney bit of Greek I know with her. Thanks for a lovely day Eleni!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nora, thank you very-very much for your kind comments! Very sweet of you to spend time writting about me during your vacation! I really enjoyed meeting you and your friend and i also liked our discussions! Your greek are great, keep on learning!

We had an absolutely brilliant day out from Thessaloniki with Eleni, visiting Pella, Vergina and Dion. Eleni was charming, knowledgeable and a very good driver. We cannot rate her highly enough. She communicated with us several times before our visit so that we could discuss ideas and suggested a perfect itinerary. She helped us to make the most of the museums we visited, translated in shops to help us find the best buys and found a good taverna for lunch. We are so grateful to have found her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine, I just got your present! I am excited! I loved it! Thank you sooooo much! I am really touched by both the gesture and the present! I wish you always travel and have a great time with your husband, family and friends! I hope we will meet again! Lots of love to all of you!

In a day's tour with Eleni we learned more about the history of Salonica and its inhabitants than one could learn from a semester's course. What a fascinating culture throughout the years. And to add to the mix, we also enjoyed outstanding dinners and pastries. Eleni was helpful and "unbiased" in her recommendations. Rare. Historic and present day Salonica by the sea are both to be savored. Thanks to Eleni we had an incredible day. Eleni is intelligent, most informative and -- a lovely, lovely person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Ann and Mr. George, thank you so much for your kind words which are very much appreciated! I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the day as much as I did! I need to say that for me it was an utter pleasure to meet you both and I sincerely hope to see you again!
Very nice time in Thessaloniki and beach.It was better than thought.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nuray, Thank you very much for your nice comments! I wish you are great and travel as much as possible!
Eleni is an extremely nice and knowledgable guide. My trip started with a drive to the upper part of the city and a view from the Byzantine walls. After that, we headed to Sithonia, the second leg of Halkiki. Eleni carefully picked a typical little town to visit and two beach locations to swim. We got lunch at another wonderful spot. She then drove me around Thessaloniki pointing touristic sites and restaurants/bars to explore. Overall, the best private tour I ever had!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cristina, Thank you very much for your comments! I also enjoyed spending time with you, you are a smart and pleasant person to talk to! I wish you the best in personal and professional level and the rest of your holidays to be memorable!

Eleni was a very helpful guide! She is so nice, kind and knows every single detaill of Thessaloniki and Philippi. I guess she knows also other cities quite well. She describes everything very clear, we enjoyed our trip with Eleni so much!! At the end of our tour, She gave us a box of chocolate as a gift... very very nice! I would recommend Eleni for your tour... Puji
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Puji thank you very much, you are very kind! My best wishes to you and your mother!

Eleni is superb! Extremely prompt, friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to fit us in, and ensure that we saw what we were interested in, yet added so much more to it. We used her car, and left all of the getting around to her. We had her for two days in a row, and she ensured we tried all (well, a lot of) the local treats, and brought us some to try that we missed. My family loved her, and I give her my highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr Bart, thank you so much for your very nice comments! It was my pleasure to show you around, you were very kind and generous! In general i am happy that i met you and your family and i hope you will have a great time during the rest of your stay in Greece! Have in mind that whatever you may need and i can help i will be very happy to do so! Many hugs and kisses to you all!
Kelly DonaldsonUnited States
This was our second tour booking with Eleni and once again, she did not disappoint. Based on our preferences to learn more of the Biblical history in the area, Eleni took us to the ancient town of Philippi. Here we were able to see antiquities from several different time periods; walk around an archaeological site; and follow some of St. Paul's footsteps. Following our time in Philippi, we asked Eleni to take us to the beach so we could experience the sea. It was the perfect way to end our day! :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again my dear Kelly! The pleasure was all mine! I am really glad you and John enjoyed the tour! I wish you will have a great time in Santorini and hope you will visit Greece again in the future! I also wish you are so happy and in love all your life! Take care, Eleni
Robert WhalenUnited States
Eleni was a fantastic guide. She took great care of us on a long road trip to Meteora. Despite the 8 hr drive and hot weather she gave an amazing tour. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her city. When in Meteora, we were taken through a couple of the monasteries and given very thorough history lessons. She took us on a quick city tour on top of the Meteora road trip which was a pleasant surprise to end the night. I would recommend Eleni to anyone who is visiting. A champion of Thessaloniki!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you a lot for such kinds words! It was my pleasure to take you around! It was not enought time to show you everything i wanted to show you in Thessaloniki but i am glad you enjoyed it! Best regards to you and your wife!
Patricia PetrasUnited States
Our guide was very pleasant and informative. We really enjoyed spending the day with her and would book another tour with her if we return. She really tried to help us locate our ancestors home location in Kastoria and we appreciated her assistance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, Thank you very much for your nice comments! I have to say that i was very pleased to meet you all! If you want you can send me your e-mail in order to exchange photoes with John of old Kastoria. If i learn something about the location of your house i will write you. I wish you the best, Eleni

Eleni was great. Philippi was a wonderful trip. We had a great time and enjoyed getting to know our guide. She was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We will recommend her to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! It was great meeting you!
Tina MangosUnited States
Eleni took me on a day-long trip to surrounding areas of Thessaloniki. I learned a great deal and appreciated her professionalism, knowledge, and warm personality. She's easy to travel with and is attentive to her client's needs. She's also a very good driver, given that we went on some winding mountain roads. She's very flexible and knows how to plan the tour around her clients' interest. Touring this way is a lot more productive and gives you a more memorable experience. I'll be a repeat customer!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tina, Thank you so much for your very nice comments and advice in general! I enjoyed our tour very much also! I am looking forward to see you again! I wish you to have a great time and enjoy life!
