My friend and I loved this experience! We're both studying abroad in Athens, and didn't have means of transportation to get us all the way to Meteora/Kalambaka, so this was the perfect setup. Our guide was knowledgeable and made the experience really fun. It was great to hear about the place from her perspective since she's grown up around the monasteries. The only thing I would critique would be the tight schedule. There were a few times we felt a bit rushed - like when we first got off the train and had to rush through breakfast, as well as from monastery to monastery. However, it is a necessary evil to see as much as we did in a day. For any future travelers, I would suggest bringing snacks or energy drinks (it's an early and long train ride!) to keep your spirits up. Otherwise, absolutely wonderful trip that I highly recommend if you have a free day for adventure!
This tour exceeded my expectations! Katarina was friendly, witty, and incredibly knowledgeable about the Meteora area all of the Monistaries and the Hermit Monks. She not only grew up in the area, she studied the history in school, certified by her PHD. The weather was unpredictable, in this late November tour but somehow we had the best of luck and the fog parted each time we arrived at a photo stop. Our Driver, I didn’t catch his name was also very friendly and safely drove our group to the best lookouts. He even offered to take pictures. Thank you for an excellent experience
The train trip is worth it! The landscapes are magnificent and the visit of the three monasteries is immersive. The guide shares some interesting information with us.
Amazing. This place is in another level of incredible and beautiful. The train ride is worth it.
