Everything (including trains) was punctual. I received Train tickets on e-mail, catch the Train (switch the Train), everything according to information at web page. Our guide Tomas was excellent with lots of mithology tales, information etc. He speaks English very Well. The driver of the van was also very good. Metora Are “must see” in Greece (with Acroplis).

Travelled by rail from Thessaloniki instead of the bus as we got to visit three and see all six monasteries. The guide and driver from Thrones Tours were excellent, fun a d full of great snippets of information. Can be a little bit stressful changing trains as ours was running late but the second train/ changeover will wait for the first train if late. Highly enjoyable but long day. Take plenty of reading material for the train journeys.

Wij zijn met de trein richting de meteora gegaan. Ongeveer 3,5 uur rustig in de trein gezeten en ons nergens zorgen over hoeven te maken. Op het station aangekomen stond Chris ons netjes op te wachten. Hij liet ons de mooie plekjes zien en wist veel van de omgeving af.
