The guide Dimitri was very personable, told a lot, was beautiful, unbelievable how these monasteries were built, is an experience that you will not soon forget, the only negative thing is that the tours are based on the arrival of the zues from Athens, so I had to wait 1 hour wait, but honestly it's more pleasant to stay overnight in kalambaka the 5 hours up and down the stairs is exhausting and before and after that the train takes over 4 hours no thanks, kalambaka because you eat great at all the Sirtaki tavern it was delicious

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.

Nice tour, just the right time in the monasteries and some stops at the best points to take photos. At the beginning they give you about 20 minutes to eat something for lunch, it seemed like a short time. At the end of the tour there are about 30 or 40 minutes free, you can tour Kalambaka a little or eat something before getting on the train.
