    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 go through the very heart of Thessaloniki, an area that reflects the character of the local food and tradition. You’ll experience a total food immersion and an explosion of tastes! At the flavorful venues you wouldn’t find on your own, you’ll have a taste of the real local life. On this tour you’ll try out something new, from seafood, to meat and snacks. Of course the amazing local market (open Monday to Saturday) will liven up the whole journey! We’ll take you to the top pastry shops in Thessaloniki with some seriously incredible sweet delights where you will have the opportunity to make some sweets yourself! You’ll leave this tour with strong flavors and unforgettable memories of the Greek local lifestyle.

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