Very interesting activity, we loved it. The guide was very good. Transport to Kalambaka was very good. The only downside is the management of autonomous transport by train which is messy. Arrive in advance to inform you because very little indication. However, this has nothing to do with the organizing company since it is a public transport in Athens. But I recommend it as a must see activity. That's wonderful !!!!

Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared many interest facts about the different stops and places we visited. The day was very organized and the company ensured you had your train tickets and directions to the station in advance. While the train ride is long and quite hot in the summer months, it is definitely worth the trip to the beautiful monestaries!

It’s the perfect way to see Meteora from Athens with as little stress as possible, making sure you see everything you need to see. Chrysa the guide was amazing and made the trip even better.

A fantastic visit with a guide who speaks the French language really well and knows the site well.

Fantastic! Very well planned and organized! I strongly recommend this.
