Highlights
    What to Expect
    The tour starts at 10am inside the Port of Thessaloniki, across Eleftherias Square (in front of the white mast). Our hosts will take you by the hand on this journey where you will enjoy tasty food and immerse into the richness of local life. Along with delicious bites, throughout the tour you will enjoy stories about Greek culture, customs and traditions. 

    We’ll start the day by grabbing some of the famous local pastries and snacks, just like Greeks like to do it. We’ll take you to the places with plenty of locals eating and drinking the well-known Greek appetizers and specialties! At these flavorful venues, you’ll taste and experience the real daily life of a Thessalonian and you will discover the secrets of a Greek open market (open on Monday to Saturday). You’ll have an opportunity to drink a coffee while listening to intriguing stories in a pleasant atmosphere of an undiscovered venue. You’ll leave this tour with sweet memories carved to your mind and a wish to come back for more!

    We are sure that this experience will be the best souvenir you will take home with you!
