This is a long day but totally worth it. Train from Athens at 7.20am, arrive to Kalambaka at 11.30am, a 4.5 hour tour in a comfortable air-conditioned mini bus, and a 5pm train from Kalambaka, arriving to Athens around 9pm. BUT - the scenery and monasteries are unique and simply jaw-dropping. Do this tour. Our guide Jim was excellent - knowledgeable, witty, engaged and engaging. p.s. there is a tour that includes the train tickets but we booked our own train tickets at www.trainose.gr - the advantage is that you can choose your class and seat.

Magical !

We arrived by train from Athens which was delayed but the tour bus was waiting for us & stored our luggage as well. Tour guide was very informative & both herself & bus driver was so helpful in getting us just the right photo. Meteora is really something to behold & thank-you for opening my eyes to this wonder.

Had a great time! The minibus was comfortable and made stops at scenic viewpoints along the way. The guide had a huge range of knowledge on the history, culture, geology, theology, and modern relevance of Meteora. We entered two monasteries and there was an adequate amount of time to explore them fully. There was no stop for lunch, so we brought our own sandwiches to eat. The tour ends with about an hour until the train to Athens, giving you time to explore or eat in Kalabaka (although be aware that this is during the afternoon rest period so many shops were closed). Really enjoyable tour, I highly recommend it!
