Good half day trip to various Monastries in Meteora. We were transported in a nice, comfortable mini-bus with an experienced guide. The Guide provided important historical, local and monastry-related info. The bus also stopped at a few points for picture-taking. Unfortunately, it was raining during the trip which dampened the fun

This tour was amazing! Very easy pickup straight from the train station. Amazing to have local friendly faces greet you as soon as you arrive in Kalambaka holding signs with your name only 10 meters from the station. The bus is very nice and air conditioned for hot days, and the tour gives you the feeling that you've seen all the best parts of Meteora with plenty of time to explore and take photos. Our tour guide Maria was incredible, extremely knowledgeable and friendly and happy to answer any and all questions about the history and culture of the local area. Could not recommend this tour more for anyone visiting the area!

First of all, Meteora is just a big WOW. It is spectacular - not to be missed. Our tour consisted of visiting four of the six active monasteries and took the full 5 hours. Our guide Dimitrios has a very comfortable car and had an immense amount of knowledge that he shared with us about each of our stops as well as Greek Orthodox tradition and Greek mythology. He was engaging, funny, spoke loudly and clearly so we could all hear him in the car. He did not come in the monasteries with us, but gave us a overview before each stop and answered questions afterwards so we could visit at our leisure. He even gave us a stellar restaurant recommendation for lunch after our tour!
