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.

Kostas was great - really informative, passionate about his city and the care and enjoyment of his visitors. Linda, Georgia and I have no hesitation in recommending him for walking tours.

Wow,just wow! I have never thought food tour might be so acknowledgeable I have heard explanation about different types of food from savoury to sweet...and even spicy. In general I love Greek food but after this experience it made me love it even more! All the meze and sweets left me speechless. Thank you Konstantinos for an amazing overview of your delicious cuisine!

Had an excellent food tour with Konstantinos. He led us to the most amazing pastry shop we have been to in Europe. Seriously. Would love to do another tour with him sometime in the future!
