Very nice guides, who also take good pictures in between. Know all the nice places and can tell you all about them. In addition, I also learned a lot about Greek culture and the impressive environment. We had a small-scale tour which made it extra fun. This way you get to places that you miss when you go alone.

We had a blast; it was a cloudy day with some light rain, so no famous panoramic postcard photo of all the monasteries together. Nick and his partner were welcoming and great guides! They were generous to drive us back up the mountain when the rain and fog cleared up. Without hesitation, we would have loved to extend our stay in Kalabaka! Look for Nick when you’re in Kalabaka, this is a must-visit when in Greece.

The view of Meteora is more amazing than you can imagine. It is one of the few world complex heritage sites in Europe, and I think it is a must-see.
