Great organization by travel company, train tickets received electronically a few days before trip and tour bus was waiting for us upon arrival to Meteora. Long day but well worth it for the spectacular views (plus the town was a little sleepy not sure if it would be worth staying overnight). The guide was informative and funny while he provided commentary on the bus between picture spots and monasteries. Tips: there are dress codes (not explicitly mentioned) girls needed to wear skirts and cover shoulders (shawls and sarongs were provided at entrances for free) while guys had to have pants that went below the knee where the nuns were, they would not let them use sarongs & were quite strict - would pack a pair of jeans to be able to go in.
We had a fabulous time. Everything was perfect and Martina, our guide, was full of knowledge. The hotel was great (we went first class), although at first we had a twin instead of a double. We were able to arrange a swap with the hotel. The only thing we’d change would be to have a toilet on the bus and to stop at a different lunch place coming home (food was very ordinary, high pressure selling and really only main course meals - all we wanted was a sandwich or roll. Other than that - fabulous!
The trip on day of arrival was an amazing experience. The sunset and everything. Evelyn and Kostas were both great as guide and drivers. I would suggest that you think of something like taking people to the countryside instead of 2nddays to monestries and the 3rd day of just hanging around doing nothing while waiting till its time for the train to leave.... The second visit to monestries could rather be worked in on 3rd day while you show the people the forests and stuff on 2nd day.
The Delphi & Meteora 2-Day Tour by Key Tours is enjoyable and is value for money. The timing for the visit to Delphi and 2 of the Metero monasteries was perfect. Although the coming back coach trip was tiring, we were given a number of toilet breaks along the way back. Thanks to our knowledgeable tour guide who had given us plenty of details and information about the places along the way and the interesting Greek mythology :-). We enjoy this 2-day tour by Key Tour very much!
Better clarification with train ticket. We went to booth to redeem train ticket and he couldn't help us but wouldn't guide us neither. We almost purchase new ticket and someone help us and informed us that once in the train it will be redeem. I think that is important information and clients need to know they could by pass ticket booth and go straight to train.
