5 stars Larisa L.

We were in Thessaloniki for one day on a shore excursion with private guide Efi Kalamboukidou. She was excellent. We discussed our itinerary with her prior to the tour and despite the tide schedule, Efi made it all happen. We visited Vergina and Pella and had a tour of Thessaloniki itself all in one day. We even had time for lunch in local restaurant. Efi was very knowledgeable and informative and her English and knowledge of history is fantastic. We would recommend Efi to anyone

Efi is a fantastic private guide. We had a really great experience with Efi from first contact through Viator until the last minute of the tour. She is very prompt in answering emails and she is a lovely person, very knowledgeable about everything and very accommodating. She makes travelling around Thessaloniki a huge pleasure. My parents and I had such a wonderful time in Greece because of Efi and we appreciate her very much. I thoroughly recommend her as a guide.

5 stars Gregg F. 20 Dec 2013

Efi was incredibly professional and knowledgeable throughout our tour. She went above and beyond in her assistance, coordinating extra details with hotels and arranging for group reservations at a local restaurant in Thessaloniki. Her command of English is very high and her knowledge of the region's history seemed limitless. We will definitely use her services for future trips like this one.

5 stars Roberta M. 08 Apr 2011

Efi was very knowledgeable, as well as very pleasant. She recommended the best plan to visit as many sites as practicable in the short time we had. She also helped confirm my rental vehicle and driver when I was unable to get a confirmation from the company. We all were very satisfied with the trip.
