I had an absolutely fabulous day on this trip. It was with some trepidation that I booked this trip as the reviews were mixed. However, I can honestly say this was my favourite day in Greece and the long train journey was absolutely worth it. Meteora itself is completely incredible, and was made even better by the very comfortable transport and highly professional, attentive and knowledgeable guide, who has lived in the area his whole life and had lots of interesting knowledge to share. He tailored the trip to suit me as I was the only one on the trip, and was so kind in offering to take photos at the viewpoints and stop off for refreshments etc. I felt that the day was very good value for money and that the train ride was surprisingly comfortable and straightforward. I stayed at a hotel near the station just to make things a little bit easier. The only problem was the company's insistence that tickets were printed rather than just shown on a phone, as I don't this this was necessary.
The tour was excellent, everything thing was organized and perfect and my tour guide Maria was totally nice and extremely friendly she answered all my questions and did everything in order for us to have a nice time I really enjoyed every moment in the tour and I totally recommend it.
It's a must! It's one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The views it's just breathtaking. And the history of the region its fascinating. I learned so much! Its a 4hr on train from Athens but is totally worth it!
everything worked, other than the train which only the government can control things run on time and to scheduled. The staff were helpful and very friendly
