Great tour, definitely recommend to take it when in Meteora. Tour started and ended on time. We had a friendly driver in the minibus and a really very good guide telling us interesting facts about history of location and monasteries from prehistoric geological creation of rocks until present day, including practical life in monasteries and vincinity. They took us to best spots for taking pictures activelly offering to help us with group pictures themselves. We visitted 3 monasteries at various parts of the Meteora location which we found as just about right to get an overview. We were there with own car, but it was definitelly worth to take the tour.

vety nice tour-recommended!

We dont like organised tours, but for Meteora we have decided to book one and we were really pleased. Booking 1 day before online was easy&hassle-free (online voucher issued). Picked-up on time,.the guide-girl was lovely,had great English&was very passionate about Meteora history. Driber was lovely too:). So sometimes is good to hire specialist to have better experience than doin’ in on ur own:).

Very patient and knowledgeable guide in a comfortable mini-bus

Our guide, Vasily (sorry, don’t know how to spell it), arrived on time and was very cheerful. His English was very good and he was very knowledgeable about Meteora and the history of the region. He gave good advice about the monasteries. I only wish he was able to escort us into the actual monasteries. But, again, he knew everything possible about the sites so it was not really necessary. Also both the guide and the driver helped us take pictures. As to the driver, I felt he was a good driver and considering the traffic there, it can’t be easy
