Full description
Explore the magnificent mountains of Meteora on a tailored-made 4-hour private tour, and see the most important complex of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece after Mount Athos.

Your private guide will provide personalized attention throughout your tour, which can be taken in the morning or afternoon. You can customize your own itinerary, or let your local guide lead the way.

The 12-seat Mercedes Benz Sprinter minibus offers full leather interiors and wood finishing, climate control, LCD monitors with TV, DVD, USB and memory card slots. Refreshments will also be served on board, and public address systems enable close communication with your guide.

During the tour, you will visit the prehistoric cave of Theopetra, said to have been inhabited over 50 millenia ago. Go to 2 of the monasteries of your choice, including the Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron, the largest of the complex. Perched on high cliffs, and accessible by rock-cut stairs, all of the monasteries will allow you to experience close-up the hermetic life of the monks and nuns among weathered peaks and pinnacles.
