Great tour, great guide, great museum and achaeological sites.
First let me say unlike the tour I had to Meteora, I have no negative comments for this one. First, the Guide, Demitra (SP?), was exceptionally knowledgeable of the contents of the museum and sites and was also professional in keeping the group together and on schedule. The bus was on time from start to finish. The graves and the museum over them was incredible. Even the lunch stop was good.

Our tour (3 July) had a very knowledgeable and competent guide. The sights were brilliant, but I wish we had more time at the site of Pella. The guide did talk a lot, for almost the entire duration (9 hours) in two languages. There is only so much one can absorb in a day, so maybe less is more in this case. Especially in the museums, the group might have benefited from some free time instead of having almost every single item described by the guide.

I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip from Thessaloniki but the highlight has to be the visit to the tomb of Philip II. This was a fantastic experience and came alive with the knowledge and explanations of the guide. I enjoyed our time at Pella too but would have liked more time to explore the archealogical site and less time at the museum. The was a dual language tour (Italian/English) but as the majority of travellers were Italian, some explanations and discussions were missed in English or had to be given at a later time.

this was a great tour--in depth, informative and never rushed. The time we spent in Phillip's tomb really brought home what a magnificent, important and sacred place we were visiting. Our guide was fantastic--informed and knowledgeable and super friendly (I'm sorry I can't recall her name right now :( ) I would recommend this trip to anyone and the only thing I can say at all in the negative was I would have liked to have a little more time at the Pella site. But, that is just a small suggestion rather than a complaint. This was a fantastic tour!

First class destinations are on offer here and a must for anyone with even the slightest interest in the ancient world. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, professional and (with one or two guests in particular !) very patient and understanding. I felt the structure of the day could have been better. Too much time was spent in Pella museum and too little at the archaeological site itself. Similarly, a little more coffee break time and lunch time would have been appreciated - twenty minutes for lunch at 3:30 pm is simply too little, too late. All was redeemed, however, by the spectacular, World Class wonders on offer at Vergina. Having an excellent, safe and professional driver was much appreciated.
