This is a fun way to see the Thessaloniki harbor! We took a boat ride, there is no fee, you only pay for whatever drink you order on the boat. Great views of the the city!

They said it was a “free trip” where you can drink if you want, as a cafe. When we were inside, they change the idea and said that the minimum consume was 5 euros per person. Mistaken publicity and rude waitress. I will NOT recommend...More

Thessaloniki Harbour isn’t up there with Sydney or even Auckland’s as a place for a scenic cruise, so the idea of a “FREE” cruise is a good one, with the very minor catch that you must buy a drink and of course the drinks cost...More

This is a rather spontaneous activity which can be done but isn't a must. The Trip takes around half an hour and it is free of charge. The only condition is to drink something. We had 2 Cocktails which didn't taste to good but the...More

I took this free trip at sunset, on my own, and ended up chatting, making friends and taking photos with a lovely family - everyone seemed in a good mood and willing to help each other with photos. :) I loved that I didn't have...More

The trip is free, but you have to buy a drink. This drink is quite expensive, but it is including the boat trip. It's a perfect place to see the city from another perspective. The boat is something special too. It is (or looks) very...More

What can I say...loved the experience..myself, my partner and our 2 year old took a 35 minute trip round the harbour for the price of 2 drinks. We choose to go out on the Pirate ship, with an impressively dressed pirate who was happy to...More

Okay it's probably bit cheesy, but it really is a must do activity - if only to see the city from the Bay. We had a bottle of Mythos each and this was five euros per person. So for the grand sum of €10 we...More

Go to the white tower, this is where you will find the pirate ships, you board and then buy a drink, we had lemonade cost 13.00 euros. For two drinks, the trips takes about half and hour nice and relaxing.
