With the proper instructions, I was able to get from the Thessaloniki station to the site alone. The guide was very courteous, I grasped each one and confirmed that all were ready before leaving. They will guide you to the photo spots and take you to the sights efficiently, and each will give you enough time to walk around. It was very good.

Travelled by rail from Thessaloniki instead of the bus as we got to visit three and see all six monasteries. The guide and driver from Thrones Tours were excellent, fun a d full of great snippets of information. Can be a little bit stressful changing trains as ours was running late but the second train/ changeover will wait for the first train if late. Highly enjoyable but long day. Take plenty of reading material for the train journeys.
