This was a fantastic and super informative tour. We really enjoyed our tour guide Bill. He took us to a church and to a close up view of the hermit caves that we would not have found on our own. I highly recommend this tour. Our kids age 8 and 11 thoroughly enjoyed it as well.

We had a wonderful experience! I couldn't recommend it enough. This evening sunset tour was the best. We came in from Athens on the morning train, stayed 2 nights, and took this tour on our first day in. They take you to places you won't see during the day and where less tourists are. If you book this tour, request Kostas as your driver and Vasilis as your guide. They are kind, hospitable, extremely knowledgeable, and great hosts and a wonderful team. The value is incredible for what you get. Meteora is amazing, we were an extended family of 11, it was literally the perfect way to see Meteora.
