I had an amazing Tour with Konstantinos full of facts of Thessalonikis past and present. Kostas is a very knowledgable and fun Guide, the time passed by real quick. I can highly recommend taking the tour to everyone visiting Thessaloniki.

Kostas is very knowledgeable, god, he spilled so much information!

There was so much that I left with a headache, I wish the tour was better framed or there was some written timeline to try and make sense of all the interesting history of the city and the jews in particular.

Do some reading before going to the tour or go to the Jewish museum to get some perspective.
