My family and I all really enjoyed our day with Eleni. She is such a lovely person and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Greek history and a passion for her native city of Thessaloniki and surroundings. She designed a custom tour based on our interests in the country outside the city. We loved getting out into nature on Mt Olympus as well as seeing numerous historical sites. She picked us up at our apartment, drove safely all day and was great company. Thank You Eleni!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Andrew, I am very very happy you enjoyed the day yesterday! I also enjoyed it! All three of you are great company! You are a fantastic family! I wish you are always healthy and travel!

Eleni is a wonderful guide. She is very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. Her educational background includes studies in Greek cultural history and she knew the answer for all of our questions. She is extremely pleasant and was very accommodating. Out trip involved driving a few hundred miles. She was very punctual and a safe driver. I would definitely recommend her as a guide for any friend or family visiting Thessaloniki.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Richard, You and your wife have been so kind with me these two days, i really appreciate that. I thank you deeply! I wish you all the best, always to be healthy and travel!

Eleni is a fantastic tour guide. She is not only knowledgeable, but she was loads of fun and sensitive to our needs; answered every question with ease and showed us places only a native to the city would know. I highly recommend Eleni and the private tour. She was our guide and friend revealing the history and heart of Thessaloniki. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, i am very touched by the fact that you spend time during your vacation to write about me and by the fact that your feedback is that good that i don't know if i deserve it... Many thanks for everything! I wish you all the best in your lives!

Eleni gave us a first-rate morning in Thessaloniki. She made the city's turbulent history come alive, and she skilfully drove us around the areas I particularly wanted to see. At the end of the tour I felt I had made a new, interesting friend and I look forward to my next visit in 2019. It was so thoughtful to have prepared for us a list of restaurants and other useful facts. Eleni, thank you so much.

Eleni is an exceptional guide. She picked us up at the Airbnb, exactly on time, and we spent a delightful morning experiencing much of the historical sites in Thessaleniki. One of us is an avid photographer and Eleni was very patient as we delayed in several locations because of the opportunities to take pictures. ElFive stars may not have been enough! Eleni was very knowledgeable, we learned a lot. Wish we had another day, we would be happy to explore more of the surrounding areas with her. Thank you!

Robert BarnesUnited States
Thanks to Eleni for a great tour of her hometown of Thessaloniki! She arrived on time and made sure that we got a lot of value out of our tour. We enjoyed our day with her very much. She took us to historical sights, churches, and to a nice place for a small plate (tapas style) lunch..... followed up by two delicious local dessert places. If your travels bring you here, we strongly recommend that you give Eleni a chance to show you why she loves her hometown!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! I appreciate this a lot! I had a great time with you, your family and your friend and i loved your sense of humor! I send you all my love and lots of kisses to adorable Ken!

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!
