Hello All, I would definitely not only recommed this tour, but also insist on booking this one if you are definitely into religion, symbolism and analysis of the paintings and various other intricate details regarding the architecture of the churches. Konstantinos is well versed in these topics and an extremely friendly guide who also has a very good sense of humor. He also asked us what level of information we wanted to hear from him. So this tour is also apt for Beginners/Intermediate/Hardcore visitors. 2 hours is perfect for this tour and the content is also well fitting. Have a good one folks!!

Konstantinos is a model tour guide; you have not seen Thessaloniki until you do at LEAST one of his walks. His tours are packed with fascinating details that are sure to make you appreciate the city and its rich history. Truly, my tours with Konstantinos are some of the best I've had in Europe, so do not miss out!
