Great experience spending some time in Pozar and Edessa. The thermal baths weren’t too busy and were extremely comfortable. Few things to note: - The whole trip is about 8 hours, however a few of those are spent on a bus travelling. - We got about 90 mins at the baths themselves, but truthfully we wouldn’t have wanted much more than that. - The time in Edessa is a great chance to see a huge waterfall and eat at a fantastic restaurant. Don’t let the fact that you don’t get a huge amount of time in the baths put you off, it was a great experience.

Incredible day, the thermal baths are a must visit. You can rent a towel on site so no worries about carrying a wet towel around all day. The town of Edessa has breath taking views and the restaurants are great. Our guide Yanis was incredibly knowledgable, super friendly and helpful and made the trip even more memorable. Wonderful trip would definitely recommend everyone do this if you have the chance.

I enjoyed the trip very much. Relatively short ride to the thermal baths. It was very pleasant there, and the scenery spectacular. Impressive waterfalls.
