    What to Expect
    The tour starts at 10am inside the Port of Thessaloniki, across Eleftherias Square (in front of the white mast). Our hosts will take you by the hand on this journey where you will enjoy tasty food and immerse into the richness of local life. Along with delicious bites, throughout the tour you will enjoy stories about Greek culture, customs and traditions. 

    We’ll show you the thriving food and culture spots of Thessaloniki that reflect the pulse of Greek people’s hearts – bustling, warm and full of life! We’ll take you to the places with plenty of locals eating and drinking the well-known Greek appetizers and specialties! At these flavorful venues you’ll taste and experience the real daily life of Thessalonians. You’ll further try some of the best local flavors with a modern take on Greek cuisine and we’ll for sure satisfy your sweet tooth (you will even make some sweets yourself!). The interesting stories blended with the visit to the local market (open on Monday to Saturday) will definitely make your day!

    We are sure that this experience will be the best souvenir you will take home with you!

    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!
