          Beautiful Thessaloniki day trip
          We originally booked for the Pozars but the family and friends didn’t want to go due to the heat. Anna our guide was able to change us to this beach experience, spa, and a castle visit. We had an incredible experience and one of the most beautiful days of our entire trip. Thank you for such a wonderful time! I highly recommend this tour and tour company.

          Great day trip in Thessaloniki
          Company accommodated us on short notice (which they went far out of their way to do )with personal guide Barbara which I super highly recommend. She and driver andrew made the day trip awesome. Barbara was the best with information kindness and answered questions with great knowledge of all things Greek. Would always recommend this tour and request her !

          Great overview of Thessaloniki
          Maria was our spectacular guide. She made the city come alive for us. We saw the Byzantine Walls, Galerius Arch, The White Tower, The statue of Alexander the Great, The Church of Holy Demitrious, Vlatadon Monastery, a place of peace and home to several white peacocks (and Peahens). The city is huge, the second largest in Greece. This was a day well spent.

          Great tour to Dion and Mount Olympus
          George was a marvelous guide! The trip was fantastic. Mount Olympus is to be experienced. The waterfalls, hermit churches, scenery, gorges, wildlife is wonderful. The ruins of the city of Dion at the bottom of the mountain are also exceptional. The condition is good and it is a vast city. There is much to see in the ruins. A great day tour.

          Day trip to Kavala and Philippi following the footsteps of apostle Paul
          It was a beautiful day trip from our hotel in Thessaloniki to the Kavala and the archeological site of philippi! Our personal driver and guide John is passionate with his job and the history of Macedonia and he gave us many information about the local history and specifically the footsteps of apostle Paul in northern Greece. We learnt a lot and had a enjoyable day with mr John!

          Paul's footsteps with iGoHellas!
          We went on 2 customised trips with iGoHellas around Macedonia and has a great time. Our driver George was very good, providing us with lots of background information. We were particularly visiting the places that apostle Paul had been to during his missionary journeys. We will certainly recommend iGoHellas for anyone visiting Macedonia, Greece. They were very accommodative and adaptive.

          Excellent services!
          My partner and I last week traveled to Kalithea Chalkidiki for business and chose for an airport transfer service with igohellas. From booking to the transfer, everything was handled with utmost efficiency. I highly recommend driver Ioannis for his excellent services, making our trip a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

          Sithonia offers some of the best beaches in the world. Thanks to our driver, Mr. Petros, we enjoyed our day trip to Sithonia by visiting some of its best points.

          Our driver, mr Petros, epitomized both warmth and professionalism throughout our journey from Thessaloniki to Dion and Olympus. With an expert hand, he guided us to the most captivating vistas of Mount Olympus, each stop steeped in history and myth.

        IgoHellas gave me and my two best friends the unique opportunity to explore the famous Meteora and get away from city life and work. The guide was very kind to us and had a full organized schedule. He took us to all the pathways that we wanted to explore, we ate local food and we took so many photos of the area and those gigantic rocks! We noted that we will do it again with igohellas!! Thank you!!

        Our mixed group which included my 2 teenagers, husband and my 80 year old mother had an amazing day seeing the monasteries of Meteora and learning about their history. Our hosts, both coincidentally named Ioannis, were so patient and accommodating, making sure that my mother had plenty of time to make it to the top of the monasteries and making the tour interesting for our teenagers. It was so nice to have time to see everything and not feel rushed. We ended the day with a traditional and delightful Greek lunch. All in all it was a special day. I would highly recommend this tour especially if you have a group with mixed mobility needs! It was one the best experiences we had during our visit to Thessaloniki!

        Absolutely marvellous day tour from Thessaloniki for a truly awesome meteora experience. The rock formations and monasteries are beautiful and breathtaking. I don't think there's many other places on Earth quite like this! Mr Jannis Papas was an excellent guide, I really appreciated how much local flavour and expertise he was able to bring to the tour from his own experiences growing up in the area--he’s very friendly, and definitely not at all pure dry history. On top of that we had the best driver ever also named Yannis who made our trip fantastic with his expertise and professionalism! Thank you for everything guys and we will definitely see you again soon!

        This tour was incredible. Photos don’t do it justice. George was the absolute best driver and tour guide. I highly recommend this tour. A word of advice to the women…make sure you wear a skirt below the knee and a shirt with sleeves. We were able to purchase a long scarf at the first monastery to wrap around like a skirt, but just so you’re aware. I highly recommend stopping at a bathroom prior to arriving at the monasteries as the facilities don’t resemble the American toilets and this may be an issue based on who you’re traveling with. Other than that, best way to see Greece in a short amount of time!

        The location is one of a kind in the world so well worth seeing. We did not want to take a train there from Athens or drive ourselves. The driver was excellent. There was another person in the vehicle who directed where we went since some of the monasteries close on some days so you can’t go to all of them in one visit. Not sure she was needed otherwise. This was the most expensive tour we did. Appreciated the personal service but think price a bit high since there was no official tour guide on board.

        We choose this private tour because we travelled with 12yr old child,and wanted to go with our own relaxed pace.
        It was really worth of it!
        We could spend enough time for each monasteries and plenty time to take pictures with incredible scenery.(probably it is impossible when you are in the group tour)

        Moreover,George was a professional guide/driver who drove all the way safe and very smoothly- he organized our schedule as we wished to do,then every thing went so perfect and we had a truly memorable day!
        I can fully recommend this tour!

        The destination was a great choice. we started in the morning from the hotel in Thessaloniki. the driver was very helpful. we made extra stops in very beautiful places for photos and food.
