Our guide Anna was wonderful! Her knowledge of the area and history was truly remarkable and her commentary added to the enjoyment of visiting these remarkable locations. The time spent in each location was adequate and the tour was run efficiently. Our driver was also excellent, navigating some tricky roads in foggy conditions. I would recommend this tour highly. My only comment to the organizer would be to consider adding a minimum age for destinations such as this. Unfortunately, we had a 2-3 year old child on this tour who yelled/screamed pretty much the whole bus ride and during every visit to each location at a destination. It might not be a problem for some people, but visiting these solemn, thoughtful locations with a kid screaming almost non-stop almost ruined the trip for us. There's not much any guide could do - I understand the child's family has paid a ticket, but in the future, they might consider ages 6 or 10 and up for some of the trips.
This tour exceeded my expectations! Katarina was friendly, witty, and incredibly knowledgeable about the Meteora area all of the Monistaries and the Hermit Monks. She not only grew up in the area, she studied the history in school, certified by her PHD. The weather was unpredictable, in this late November tour but somehow we had the best of luck and the fog parted each time we arrived at a photo stop. Our Driver, I didn’t catch his name was also very friendly and safely drove our group to the best lookouts. He even offered to take pictures. Thank you for an excellent experience
The train trip is worth it! The landscapes are magnificent and the visit of the three monasteries is immersive. The guide shares some interesting information with us.
Amazing. This place is in another level of incredible and beautiful. The train ride is worth it.
