28 Jun 2013 Tastes of Thessaloniki was one of the first things we did on our trip through Greece. It was the perfect start. We had our guide all to ourselves while we walked from bakery to market to ouzeri. He answered our questions about Thessaloniki and Greece and told us a bit about the town's past and present. He even made a detour to help us find a good road map for the long drive ahead of us. We sat down often and drank and ate a lot more than we had expected. Believe us: This tour easily covers breakfast and lunch. The pace is leisurely, we could take our time walking and eating and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Thank you, Thanasis!
04 Oct 2012 Very well organised.
30 Jul 2012 If you go to Thessaloniki, and have the chance to do this tour with Vicky, consider yourself very lucky!
21 Feb 2011 Good job! I can only recommend it! Enjoy it! ;)
18 Jan 2011 This was a great tour, I ate so many different types of food and I did it the way locals do, which is exactly what I wanted. The guide was fantastic, having a local show you around makes such a big difference - you find out all about the little things that a guidebook or a frequent visitor just can't capture.
Thessaloniki Urban Adventures is a family-run business, driven from our passion for Thessaloniki, Greece, culture and local life! We love exploring the city and surrounding countryside (mostly on our motorcycle) and come close to nature and people!
