Very nice experience with informative guide, Christos. We were taken to lookout points with incredible views of the monasteries and the visits inside were equally stunning. I was concerned that just 5 hours would not be enough time, but the afternoon was well planned and did not feel rushed at all.

We did the tour with the local company Meteora Thrones and it was great. The guide Sara spoke perfect Spanish and gave us a lot of explanations. We visited 3 monasteries and were stopped at several viewpoints to take photos. Then they left us in the center of Kalambaka and we had time to eat before taking the train back.

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
