I cannot begin to say how much my son and I enjoyed this. With Danai, Rojena and Maria making every part of the tour really interesting and thoroughly enjoyable. It was also the relationships that Danai had with the producers and shop owners that made us feel like we were part of the real Thessaloniki and ensured we’d be back to this amazing city.
To spend the day with such lovely people, to see and do so many things and to eat so well was a real treat. I would highly recommend.

The tour was a truly wonderful and personal way to explore both the food and culture of Thessaloniki. Our guide, Tonia, was absolutely terrific. We felt as though we spent the day with someone we'd known for a long time. Not only did we discuss food, architecture, history but also a huge number of other subject that made the experience one of a kind. And, we ate! We ate quite a bit of wonderful food throughout the tour. I would highly recommned.

We had a wonderful day with Vasili who led us through his city telling us about the food and drink that reflect the people and history of Thessaloniki. We thought it was to be half a day but if fact over the space of 7 hours (10am - 5pm) we visited 6 different places each of them family run. This was the highlight of our holiday.

He told us he had such a great time with you guys that he felt he was on a nice day out with friends and that time was not of the essence. We are extremely happy that this experience was the highlight of your holiday and that you loved the food and the local venues! Hopefully we will see you again in Thessaloniki!

We greatly enjoyed our food tour with Vasili. We ate a variety of tasty food and enjoyed a great overview of Thessaloniki. We have taken food tours in many countries. This tour was among the best we have experienced anywhere. If you enjoy food tours or want to try one, this is a great way to enjoy Thessaloniki with the help of a great guide. Hope that you have the good fortune to have Vasili as your guide.

Our wonderful tour guide was Vasilis. He provided us with an extraordinarily generous historical and culinary experience of Thessaloniki. He answered all of our questions, was extremely knowledgeable, and feted us with a variety and abundance of foods that made dinner a non-necessity.
Vasilis’ love of Thessaloniki and his pride in sharing that affection with us, made this the best city tour I’ve ever had.

Dear sheiladcolon, Thank you for this amazing review of your food and culture experience in Thessaloniki with Epiculiar! Vasilis was really enthusiastic to have met you too and even more that he was able to connect with you because of the shared love for Florida. He particularly enjoyed sharing interesting stories with you and we are so happy to hear that this was the best city tour you’ve ever had! We wish you an amazing day and hope to see you again.

The tour was great, Emma explained a lot about the town and history and 1001 different foods.
After half an hour we felt like walking with a friend known since years...
Difficult to rate what was best, walking, drinking or eating. After every stop Emma told us that the next stop for a small dish is coming soon...
So tipp for everybody - skip the breakfast :-)

Emma - Whenever you visit Ulm again, let us know... we will give you a tour in Landsberg to feed you like you did with us :-)))

Thanks to Emma for the beautiful day and for at least 2 kg more body weight...(at least for me - Eric)

Hi Eric D, Thank you for the great review of your Epiculiar Food & Culture tour in Thessaloniki! Emma loved being your host and sharing many stories about the city and its delicacies. The combo you've mentioned: walking, drinking and eating, is what we love to do while sharing a lot about the town, its culture and traditions. Emma says she will let you know if she visits Landsberg again. What nice of you to offer to give her a tour. We're sure that extra weight that seamed like 2kg already disappeared and that you feel like a true Thessalonian after this experience. Say hi to Sandra and Leo. We hope to see you again!

This half day private tour undertaken by my wife and me, led by Anastasia was awesome! We spent nearly 5 hours moving between different eating and drinking establishments, enjoying their specialities, and learning about Thessaloniki's customs and culture along the way.

All of the restaurants produced quality and delicious food, from the breakfast through the meat and fish experiences to the dessert. Make sure you start hungry, as there's a lot to get through.

Anastasia was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She didn't overdo the commentary along the way, allowing us to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the different areas of the city.

Highly recommended!

Dear 125bernardc, Thank you for this awesome review of the food and culture experience in Thessaloniki with Epiculiar! Your local host Anastasia was enthusiastic about your guys and we're happy you had an enjoyable time together. We heard that your favorite part was 'pastourma' tasting in the open air market! It's great that Anastasia took you on this journey of discovering local food and culture, as well as taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the city. We hope that you'll remember this experience for a long time. P.S. We agree that not eating a big breakfast is a good tip for those who want to join the tour, so thanks for reminding the future guests of that. Wishing you a beautiful spring!
