They picked us up right from the train station which was very convenient. The guide was kind, but did feel like he was talking to us as if were at a meditation retreat. he seemed a little lost at some points and I wish there was a bit more information. The monestaries and views were gorgeous. Breathtaking. Next time I would probably spend the night in Kalambaka and hike up to the monastaries instead or rent a car.

This tour was good, but not as informative as the sunset tour we had the day before mainly because of our guide. He was a very nice man, but not as knowledge as our guide from the day before. It was great to have the chance to see inside the monasteries though.

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.
