What people are saying about Central Macedonia

This is a long trip, but Meteora should be seen. No photo can replace an experience. It would be good to spend more time there, but the trip from/to Thessaloniki takes some time with one stop each way. Bus drive was ok, the restaurant where the lunch is organized was also very good.

The most perfect memorable day! Such nice and helpful hosts. To sum it up: Good company, fantastic food and a simply amazing vibe. Added bonus - we managed to see dolphins swimming with the boat!! A must when in Thessaloniki!

Lots of time on the bus, luckily with 50% of the seats free, an excursion that deserves it, a visit to at least 3 meteors would have been excellent. Attentive driver and trained guide.

Our guide, Eleni/Helen, was very knowledgeable and gracious. Everything exceeded expectations.

Perfect. The tour guide was amazing. There was enough time for everything.
