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

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

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!
