I have been to many tours and I have to say that this one was one of the amazing tours with a great tour guide. The train was clean. The tour guide was extremely friendly and accommodated any extra requests. We loved it!! We’ll be back for another tour with them. The tour guide needs a 100 stars!!

Four hour train ride from Athens to Kalabaka went by quickly. Tour guide and driver were there to met us. Monastery tours were very interesting. We have excellent photos. Highly recommend this tour.

I think this is the easiest way to do a day trip from Athens, and it is totally worth it! The description is not super clear on this, but you will arrive around lunch time, take a quick look at hermit caves, and then have the opportunity to grab food before heading to the monasteries. You will also be able to grab food upon returning from the monasteries.

This trip is really exceptional and anyone with a few days or more in Athens should go to see. The train trip is long but really you get to take in the country side out of Athens. Passing through small towns and chatting along the way. We were fortunate to take this on a not so busy day. No lines or delays due to crowds. The Meteora Monasteries are fantastic. You can only imagine the work it took to build these some 500 years ago.
