I’ve done other bike tours in Meteora and this one was by far the best! Chris was a welcoming and extremely knowledgeable tour guide. We learned so much fascinating history about the area. The scenery was unparalleled, and Chris knew the best photo spots + took photos for us. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. Book it now!

Everything went smoothly. It was nice that the shuttle bus picked and dropped me off at my hotel. We were able to see all of the monasteries, had plenty of time to visit 2 of them and much more too! (hermit caves, history). Our tour guide was very friendly, enthusiastic, and very passionate.

Nice and smooth transitions from transportation to going to places. Very attentive and always on time providers. They made sure all my needs were met at all times and went above and beyond. Christos & Eleni were amazing!! Highly recommended.

nice proposal. The organization was punctual: from the train ticket to the welcome on arrival, from the guided tours to the availability to satisfy any wishes. I also enjoyed having free time to explore the trails around Kalambata.

We loved this trip, beautiful views, amazing cathedrals, great mountains!
