Another lovely, edifying yet entertaining day with Ioannis in bright 🌞😎 hot Thessaloniki. Participants were attentive, appreciative, interested and friendly.

Ionnis was a really interactive and fun host! It was a bit sad that we scheduled the walk at the end of our trip as in addition to great storytelling involving many facts and legends of the town, he shared many recommendations about the best places to go to. Definitely recommend, and if possible, schedule the tour in the beginning of your trip!

Response from Ioannis
Thank you so much for tbis heart-warming comments! Best wishes, Yannis
