Full description
After a pick-up at your hotel in Kalabaka or Kastraki you’ll travel a few miles northwest from Kalabaka, to Meteora. The impressive rocks of Meteora rise from the plains of Thessaly, and are one of the most amazing sites in Greece. Many centuries ago, on these gigantic rocks reaching heights of close to 2,000 feet, one of the most important monastic communities of Greece was formed. During this 4-hour tour you’ll experience spectacular landscapes and marvel at the Byzantine monasteries perched atop the steep rocks. Today only 6 monasteries are still active, operated by a small number of monks and nuns who reside in Meteora. You’ll be able to see all 6 monasteries and have the chance to visit inside 3 of them and admire their priceless artifacts. There will be numerous photo stops along the way, so you'll be able to record your memories. Enjoy short walks during the excursion as well , only by us.

Highly recommend the sunset tour. Includes a stop at St. Steven’s, and a drive by of several other monasteries and one Byzantine church. The sunset view was just amazing, as it had just rained, and the sun setting through the clouds was perfect. We stayed the night, and the next morning, we did another 4 hour tour. This time we saw 3 more monasteries, including the biggest one, the 2nd smaller nunnery and Varlaan. All so stunning!! I can understand why Meteora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They come get you in a nice air-conditioned Mercedes van (so not too many people in your group!) and drop you off back at your hotel or wherever in town. The guides were fun, informative and helpful!! Thank you for an amazing experience!

A very beautiful place. We received explanations from the guide and there was a possibility for 3 tours (without the guide) of about one hour of one in 3 monasteries. It is very convenient to reach these places by car of the tour and not by private car.

This was a great way to view the monasteries! The hotel pickup zone didn’t include our hotel but it only required us to walk about 5 minutes to a nearby location. The tour includes transportation in a small bus and a tour guide who describes the area. It doesn’t include the tour guide going up into the monasteries with you or the entrance. We enjoyed our tour, it was a small group of seven. We toured three monasteries and went to viewpoints to see the other three. Would recommend.
