Full description
Embark on a 4-hour tour in a luxurious minivan from your accommodation in Kalabaka or Kastraki. Drive with a small group and take in the fantastic scenery of Meteora. Marvel at the extraordinary geological formations that tower above the largest plain valley of Greece. See the monasteries hanging over the cliffs and listen to the full history from your knowledgable English and Greek-speaking guide.

Visit 3 monasteries, entering their interiors so as to admire the impressive architecture and meet some of the monks and nuns. Your drive will wait for you while you explore the sites, and then take you to special spots where you can snap some beautiful photos of the scenery you may recognize from the Game of Thrones.

Amazing, the highlight of the trip!

Chris was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. We have the perfect amount of time at each location. Very informative! We also had some great opportunities for pics after the monasteries at some beautiful places!

We had a shopping & toilet break on the very beginning of the tour, so don't worry if you arrive unprepared. The guide Chris was interesting and funny, the tour was well balanced; not exhausting, but we still managed to see quite s lot.
