    Wonderful food tour combined with a walking tour of Thessaloniki. Apostolos has a wonderful style to communicating that made us feel at home right away, and we loved all the local food specialities he made us have through the tour. He also accommodated our request of getting our dog along and made sure we went to dog friendly places/ sat outside etc. He also gave us tons of information on where to visit etc and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to explore Thessaloniki! Highly recommend:)
