Best way to explore Meteora!

Professional staff and great tours with guides who speak English fluently and can tell you every detail about the rocks and the culture of the people inhabiting them and the surrounding area. The vehicles are modern and have air-condition and also free water bottles. The sunset tour on the 1st evening will give you spectacular photo opportunities. I highly recommend to tell the agency in advance that you would like to take the hiking trip (not the "half-day-tour") starting on the morning of the 2nd day. This tour will guide you through remote paths around the rocks and will give you many exclusive insights and views on the unique area away from the large crowds. Besides the accomodation in the Mythos Guesthouse which is located in the center of Kalampaka with a view on the rocks the tour also included 2 authentic dinners in local taverns which was an other highlight.
