Maria was not only an amazing tour guide but a very friendly person who did what she could to make the tour enjoyable. She was very quick to respond to questions I had before booking and was able to accommodate me at short notice. She was sporty enough to want to climb up the aquaduct for amazing views and was knowledgeable on the city. It was as if I was touring the city with my best friend. I definitely recommend her tour to anyone who visits Kavala! Do book the tour! Thank you Maria for everything! All the best.

It was a very nice walk with Maria around Kavala. She was an excellent guide and overall a very nice person. As a local she gave us stories that cannot be found in history books or tour guides. She took care of us on a scorching July heat and we've had nice conversation walking around interesting points of Kavala listening about it's storied history.

I highly recommend Maria as a local guide / expert on the history and area of Kavala. I knew very little about the city, and only staying for one night I wanted to know a little bit more about this lovely location. Maria was very personable, knowledgeable, passionate about the area & it’s history and I found the tour to be very entertaining. I have been on guided tours before and they are usually quite formal and we follow the guide like sheep - nodding and sweating in the heat. Not for this tour. I had a laugh, enjoyed some fantastic views and sights of the city and came away with a smile on my face. The tour ended right near some restaurants, and following Maria’s recommendations I went on to have a fantastic meal as well.

This was an outstanding tour. We did this on our first day in Kavala and it was a great decision. We learned so much about the history of the city and the cultural, as well as our way around the city. She also told old us about the beaches nearby and provided us with maps and brochures for the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend doing this tour.
