Audra ThomasUnited States
Constantinos was great! Wanted an overview of the city, as our daughter is studying here this semester. Lots of walking uphill to the old city, so wear comfortable shoes. We had a small travel window , so we were in the heat of the afternoon. We stopped for iced coffee early on, fresh lemonade at a local street cafe in the middle of the tour (3.5hrs), and ended with traditional Thessaloniki dessert and bread. Saw the history, told us about the economy and city life now. Excellent start to our visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Audra! It was really nice meeting you. It was my pleasure to assist you and your family and I'm really glad that you've enjoyed! All the best!
Leslie EdelmanUnited States
What a delightful time we had with Constatntinos.!. a true "local" who showed us the best part of Thessaloniki,, We enjoyed a walking tour of the old part of the city with him, stopping to enjoy a coffee here, a bit of pastry there, a sweet in yet another shop, all the while giving us an insight into the city and the lives of the people who live there. It was a morning very well spent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Leslie for your lovely comment! It was a great day and I really enjoyed the time with you! I felt as "old friends"... and I really like that! That's why TourByLocals is something more than just "tour by locals"! I am very happy that you enjoyed as well. Have a nice life back to NYC. All the best!
Carla PintoUnited States
Constantinos was an amazing tour guide!! We had lots of fun-he explained everything very well and clear and we saw things that we wouldn't see if we did the tour alone! Fantastic tour in Thessaloniki!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carla! I really enjoyed your company! Walking tours with people like you, giving extra value to the "TourByLocals"! I hope to see you soon!..
Victor Gutierrez-contrerasSARATOGA, CA, United States
Professional, Friendly, walking tour of the city, knowledgeable local tour guide with fluent English
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Victor! I really enjoyed the time I had with you. We had some really nice talking and fun! I wish you all the best!
Constantinos was an amazing guide, knowledgeable, kind and patient. We were with our two kids and therefore the patience was greatly appreciated. There was no clock-watching here as Constantinos went out of his way to show us as much as possible and whatever we had an appetite for. He bought our kids ice cream as well as took us to a park to let them play and break the tour up a bit. The tour itself was well thought out and really painted a full picture of the historic and cultural elements of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ronnie, I am really happy that you had a lovely day. It was great to have met you all four! Thank you for your nice comment and I hope to see you again in future. All the best to both of you and your family!
Diane EverettUnited Kingdom
Great tour, fabulous locations, very informative but in a relaxed manner to allow everyone to explore the churches and surroundings. Highly recommend this tour as an insight into this wonderful city's origins.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words Diane! I'm very glad that you like it! It was a lovely morning and I really enjoyed your company and thank you for that! Wish you all the best... to all of you!
David BenglisUnited States
Constantinos P. He is the greatest guide. Modified tour to ones liking. We saw the history of Thessaloniki. He also answered questions I had about Greece that may seem trivial to Greek citizens. We finished tour at local restaurant. I actually want to keep in touch with this guy bc he's a cool dude. A +++++, Book 100 percent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback David! I am very glad that both of you enjoyed our morning "exercise"! :-) I am really happy you liked the tour. I had a great time with David and his father. They were perfect company for a thoroughly enjoyable, morning walk in the Ano Poli. They were very kind, friendly and open minded people. It is people like David and his father who give great value to my walking tours. I will be more than happy to see them every year, to enjoy another lovely chat!
For anyone considering doing a tour of Ano Poli, look no further. Constantinos was fantastic. We felt like we were walking the streets of Ano Poli with a friend, rather than with a tour guide. He was knowledgeable, passionate, friendly - quite simply, we loved his company. Anyone travelling to Thessaloniki, visiting Ano Poli is a must… but make sure you book it with Constantinos. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vicky, Thank you so much for leaving your glowing feedback! I really appreciate it! Well... that morning I felt like we were close friends from the very first minute! We had a great time all together, with many jokes and nice chat about... almost everything! I am really happy that all of you enjoyed the walk! I wish you all the best to all of you and to each one separately! Take care!
Angela ZekiosUnited States
My son and I had a great tour today.! Constantinos was very knowledgeable and relatable and took us to sites we would have missed if on our own. He gave pertinent background information at each destination that added depth and appreciation. We are very interested in history and spirituality and this tour had elements of both , while being exposed to the local culture when walking through the neighborhoods. Constantinos was very accommodating in our planning this at the last minute...we are SO glad!! TY!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Angela, thank you so much for your kind feedback and your generosity! I really enjoyed meeting you and your son and I am really happy that you both liked the tour. I wish you a great time during your stay and I would be more than happy to help you. I wish you all the best! Have fun!
Kris ShaparUnited States
Great tour guide! Constantinos gave me a local's perspective on a city that is rich in Greek, Turkish, and early Christian history. He helped give me an idea of what it is like to live here, and showed me many, many interesting things. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kris is a very kind person and i really enjoyed the walk together! Wish all the best!
Very knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent way to see the city. He structured the tour for my capabilities ( took a few breaks to get a cold drink as I found the day very hot) and took into account specific things I wanted to see. Especially if you have limited time or are on your first part of your holiday this seems the best way to really see some interesting things that you would be unlikely to easily find on your own. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jennifer for your glowing feedback! I really enjoyed the walking tour and i had a great time talking with you. Jennifer is a very positive and kind person, open-minded and very generous.
Alasdair CampbellUnited Kingdom
I appreciate that with rain making the agreed time impossible that it was possible to arrange an alternative. The one to one ratio was good. It is an uphill walk, fascinating with narrow, twisting, cobbled streets, its history explained as you go. The churches visited are fascinating with one gem of most unusual mosaics. Views of the city become expansive and the Walls emphasise its earlier size. Tour covers area where no buses go and on foot is worth the effort. It should be see
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoyed the walk with Alasdair! Even the rain it wasn't enough to stop us. A lot of walking... a lot of information. It was a very pleasant company!
Cheryl OwenUnited States
A lot of walking, if coming from cruise ship, but well worth it. Guide was excellent..informed, personable, and with good English. Highly reccomended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very kind words Cheryl. I apprecciate it. I really enjoyed the walk with both of you. Both of you are adorable!
Janice ChengHong Kong
The tour was informative and highly recommended if you want to see something different from the modern side of Thessaloniki .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janice, I really enjoyed our walk.
Heather VaughanUnited States
Constantinos was like meeting a long lost friend who wanted to share his favorite things about town. Good mix of history, local lore, beautiful sights and favorite places of locals. This tour really opened my eyes to a new beauty of Thessaloniki.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We have a very good time with Heather and Katy. I really enjoyed the walk with them. They are both adorable.
Constantinos provides a very nice walking tour through the nicest part of Thessaloniki. I can recommend it.
It was an overnight stay only in Thessaloniki so we had in mind a quick overview of the city. We had asked to share a meal together and he brought us to a local taverna with excellent food and prices! Thank you Constantinos! Excellent walk to Anapoli and then on to the seafront. You made us walk off calories from dinner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Haha... indeed! I really enjoyed the walk with you. You are very kind. I wish you all the best. Thank you!
Alvin LimSAN FRANCISCO, CA, United States
Great tours by locals great email contact.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alvin is a very kind and open-handed person. I hope to enjoying the life every time which he does a walk! Thank you Alvin.
Shayla OlsonUnited States
Constantinos is very knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and an all around nice guy! We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him touring and experiencing the area and history of Ano Poli. He catered to our individual needs and even went the extra mile, taking us to a grocery store to point out which olive oil we should buy (we asked him about a local favorite.) We had lots of laughs and would recommend anyone to book a tour with him. Wish we could take him to Athens with us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shayla and her mother are two adorable, happy and smiley persons!.. i had enjoy every minute, every second of our walking tour. Persons like them, give another dimension to TBL and also give you the energy to continue... It was a wonderful morning, may be with not so good weather, but... with very pleasant company!
