This was such a fascinating tour. The musical instruments were beautiful objects, all with their own unique sound and stories attached to them. A really interesting way of imagining the past. Definitely going to recommend Seikilo to friends and family when they visit Thessaloniki!

Thodoris passion makes this tour AMAZING. It is clear that the whole family/team put a great effort for presenting this and it is even more great because it combines mythology, Greek history, music and live music. And all of these right in front of you!Great experience, couldn't recommend it more.
