It was a wonderful excursion. After a 2 hour bus ride, we arrived in Pozar at the thermal baths where there are two natural pools (and a pool for swimming but which is filled with natural water). For each swim in a swimming pool it is necessary to count 3 euros. We stay about 2 hours on site which is more than enough to do 2 swimming pools, each for 30 minutes, and walk around a bit. There are places to change and toilets, but no lockers to leave our belongings. I therefore advise you to pay attention to it. Then, after about 40 minutes by car, we arrive in Edessa where there is a magnificent waterfall. We also have 2 hours on site where you can walk around and eat in one of the few restaurants. The guide is very friendly and present for any information. She makes a visit to Pozar to show each place and she also takes us up to the waterfall in Edessa.

Travel to the places is very worthwhile, comfortable trip, great tour guide, who also tells information about the specific places, but would have liked to have had more time in the places, otherwise perfect!

Excellent trip, very professional and some lovely sights. The baths are superb and extremely relaxing, I’d love to do it again!

Wonderful experience! And our guide Natalie was so friendly and informative!

Very good experience, beautiful place and good guide
