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.

Definitely 5 stars! We’ve done many walking tours in various cities of Europe and Constantino was one of the most knowledgeable guides we’ve met. Due to Covid our group was small so Constantino was able to mold the tour to our interests, questions, and curiosities. We were also able to keep him for 2.5hrs instead of the normal 2hrs. Overall, the tour was fantastic and we would highly recommend to kick off your Thessaloniki visit/vacation with this tour.
