I joined Konstantinos in 4 tours, including this one, during my 3 days stay in Thessaloniki. I recommend him highly for a few reasons: First, he has a vast knowledge of the city, its history, art, gastronomy, the modern life, in short eveything you want to know about this city. Secondly, he has a great way to convey this knowledge to tourists that join him. Lastly, he is a real friend, he will do everything to help you during your stay, regardless of the tours. With, Kostas, you are in great hands.

I was amazed at the amount of knowledge kosta has. His ability to explain, interest and interact. Religion is a sensitive issue and Kosta handled it well. Highly recommend!!
