The tour was great! A smooth pick up and drop off, the tour guide and driver were both really friendly and always willing to take photos for us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, the tour itself was planned and paced perfectly. We really enjoyed it! Meteora itself is a MUST see, just an absolutely stunning place. My husband and I went on our honeymoon. You could definitely rent a car and take yourself there - but we enjoyed the additional context, local stories and history from the guide.

Excellent tour with a very motivated and knowledgeable young gentleman. We were able to visit 4 monasteries and learned a lot about the history and background of Meteora. Very modern small coach for about 25 people. Pick-up directly at the hotel. Everything perfect. We are happy to recommend this tour.

Luxury coach that picks us up directly at our accommodation. He also offers bottled water during the trip. The coach dropped us off at the location of our choice on the way back. The explanations of the guide are really complete. In addition to the monasteries, we made several stops for landscape photos and explanations.
