Fantastic tour of this spectacular corner of the world. I was surprised to find myself the only person on this 2 day 1 night tour. After the four hour train ride from Athens I was picked up at the train station and delivered to my hotel.Rex Hotel was perfect except I was the only guest. (A large tour bus showed up later.) I had four hours on my own for lunch and shopping in the charming town of Kalambaka. A small van with 7 other tourists picked me up at 4:00 pm for an excellent 4 hour tour - entrance into one monastery and a tour of the Byzantine Church. Guide Dimitri was incredibly knowledgeable. We drove around all the monasteries with plenty of photo stops and Sunset Rock. Amazing! However do not confuse this with a Hiking Tour - it is not. The second day was a four hour tour with 3 other people- entrance into 3 monasteries. Great to get amazing photos in morning and afternoon sun. Then a couple hours free time for lunch before catching the train back to Athens. Meteora is amazing!
Wonderful trip. The view of the Meteora from our hotel was just breathtaking. Our guides Marianna and Christina were both very friendly and professional, as was our driver. Overall a very pleasant and convenient way to visit these two wonderful, must see sights. Would definitely recommend to anyone. (The only one downside was a long delay getting back to Athens the next day, but this was due to traffic and not through any fault of the tour.)
We had a 10 star guide, Dmitry. Very professional, expert in archeology, mythology, religion and Greek history. Always friendly, attentive and concerned about our safety and well-being.
This was a great value for your money. Definitely worth it. The food at the hotels and stops wasn’t that great though.
One of the best tours I ever did. Both guides were amazing and Meteora visit was definitely a highlight of my trip.
