This was one of the best tours I have ever taken! Both, the guide and the driver were great! I have to praise the guide especially! She is very knowledgeable, a very good storyteller, always ready to answer questions. One can see and feel that she enjoys talking to tourists and makes the tour enjoyable to all.
We booked a last-minute tour to see Pella and Vergina and it was better than expected. The guide was very enthusiastic and told great stories about the pieces in the museums and the history. Recommended.
Choosing this tour was Great. Worth every minute spent.Congrats to the lady guide. She was very very professional.
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.
Our guide was perfect : she did a great job in 2 languages I really enjoyed this Tour
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.
We made our booking very last minute (around 11pm the night before an 8am departure) and the lovely Anthoula confirmed our booking and even followed up by phone the next morning to check everything was okay. The tour itself was great, including 3 very interesting sites. Our guide Demeter was fantastic, very knowledgable and interesting. We would recommend this tour to anyone!
The tour was great, just should be more time in Edessa, and very unsuccessful lunch place selected in Virgina - expensive and not very tasty.
