What people are saying about Thessaloniki
Great tour to a fantastic destination. Sure, the trip is a little long, but it is very much worth it. Our tour guide Lazarous gave us a lot of information on the way there, during our time at Meteora we were free to roam around at our own pace, while our guide was available for questions. We visited two monasteries, as well as a viewpoint which commanded a view of five of the six monasteries still in operation. The lunch place at Kastraki is (as others have mentioned) somewhat expensive, but you are not in any way obligated to have lunch there. You can go into town on your own, or even hike back up the road. Right behind the restaurant (marked with a sign) there is also a little trail which loops around the base of the foothills and ends where a series of caves in the rockface begin. Can recommend doing this for those who don't want to spend a whole our on lunch. We were very pleased with the punctuality and professionality of the organization. A great trip in all!
We were the only guests on this tour due to Covid-19. Thank you very much for not cancelling the route. Our guide was a studied archaeologist who provided some insights and could answer questions that came up after the various stations. We left at 8:15 from Thessaloniki and returned by 15:00. We have to add that the guide carried a little bit of body odor, and generally we wondered about the timing. At 12:30, we were done with both Pella and Vergina, and while the subsequent lunch break in Vergina was pleasant, we'd rather have spent more time on history before returning. Given that all museums in Thessaloniki close at 16:00, we then filled the afternoon with a bike ride.
Broadly speaking, our excursion to Meteora fulfilled all our expectations: the vehicle was comfortable, and we were driven safe to the listed points. At first, owing the low demand due to COVID-19, we were concerned about getting our trip called off. Instead, even counting on three passengers only, our reservation was kept and the schedule was sharply carried out. The driver (who was also our guide) was very friendly and caring. all information about Meteora and the Monasteries, provided beforehand on website, was useful and accurate. We’re happy for having taken this trip with AMMON EXPRESS. Strongly recommended!
My personal tourguide was Tasos. The tour with all his explanations, places he showd were perfect. Tasos really shows you the places that you want to see, and gives you the information individual for your personal needs. As for me, i want to move to Greece and needed all kinds of information about Thessaloniki .... and Tasos really overfilled my expectations. Better as best can get! Ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ!
This was an absolutely unforgettable day to the home of the 12 Gods. From the moment we met at the White Tower to being dropped off we had a fantastic time, made even more memorable by one of the best tour guides we have had the pleasure to meet, the amazing Dimitris. He brought the history of Dion and Olympus to life, both with his stories and his wider meditations on life.
