Our guide was knowledgeable & friendly. We were amazed by the location & it’s history. The hotel pick-up was very convenient. The only negative, if that, was the location was 4+ hours away from Athens but well worth it.

Meteora is a beautiful place to see and enjoy, even it’s a cloudy and raining, our tour guide really make sure we enjoy the experience and our bus driver is nice and helping us taking memorable pictures, wonderful crew, we enjoy our tour, but before reaching kalambaka, is a little bit tricky, from the metro to the train ride but manageable, we made it through, the train information center is a great help where to go, but I recommend this tour

I have to say the train ride was more comfortable than I thought but the main issue remains.... it's very very long and often running late!! The local tour itself was nicely done with a great young guide!

An absolutely fantastic place to visit. Stunning scenery Well worth visiting, although the train journey from Athens is quite long (4 hours each way). But it is most definitely worth it

Amazing time seeing the mountain top Monestery. Just beautiful and in awe. Wish we knew ahead of time the fees to go in the Monestery are not included. Train ride is long but it’s worth going.

The train ride was the most difficult part of the tour. 8-9 hours round trip is a long time. But the monastery tour itself was good. A lot of opportunities to get a good photo of the landscape. Our tour guide was very humorous and knowledgeable.
