Hotel Lobby
Your tour begins with morning pickup from your central Thessaloniki hotel. Traveling by private vehicle, set out on the journey to Vergina, as your guide fills you in on some background information. Learn how the ancient site was once the first capital of the Kingdom of Macedon, known as ‘Aigai’, and provides a fascinating inside into the lives of the Macedonian dynasty.

On arrival, follow your guide on a walking tour of the impressive ruins, including the monumental palace, richly decorated with mosaics and stuccos, and the burial ground, which houses hundreds of tumuli, some dating back as early as 11th century B.C. Be sure to stop by the Tomb of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great, and the Prince’s tomb, thought to be that of Alexander IV, the son of Alexander the Great. You will have time to explore both with and without your guide, depending on your preferences.

Back in Thessaloniki, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Not widely known archaeological gem...
Bosko

Not widely known archaeological gem, a must see for all archeology and history enthusiasts if in Thessaloniki! Comfortable drive in the limousine, however, our driver spoke no English and was not able to converse let alone share any information on the tour and the site, as described in the offer. She dropped us off in front of the site and asked us to come back 1h later then the hours the tour description stated, we had to take this up with her in sign language to make sure our tour was not shortened. When we came out, we still had some time for the souvenir shop across the street and she waited aside but seemed quite inpatient to get us in the car and go. Offered some nice fruit as refreshments though. On the ride back seemed in the hurry to get back and was speeding most of the time. All in all, it is a comfortable luxury ride to the site, but don't expect anything extra. They don't speak any English and will try to hurry you back and shorten your visit, make sure not to let them do it and not to let them speed/safety issues. The site itself is amazing and practically deserted in the early morning until groups start coming in, worth the effort!

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your feedback of your recent tour. Your detailed review helps us to see our product through your eyes. As per language issues described we never had before that review from any of our customers since all drivers are English speaking. Also as per exclusions of the tour licensed guide is noted at extra charge to provide more accurate details of places to visit. Last but not least have in mind that all vehicles are GPS monitored and driven within safety speed limits something that took place as well during your tour. We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back for another tour. Best Regards
