What people are saying about Kalabaka
toured 2 monasteries- saw 6- long day with train- at Athens- make sure you ask which track train is leaving from- no information on the monitor- tour guide pick us up and delivered us back to station no problem. If you want food or drink- on the train or hike into town-- but it was easy. Lots of stairs with the monasteries-- be prepared but plenty of time to explore. Well worth the effort.
The guide& the driver were both good. Well explained about the history of Meteora and took us to many places where we can have a good photos.... very accomodating & friendly.... highly recommended
This was a great trip. The train ride can be a little long but it was definitely a scenic route. The guide and his bus were waiting right outside. We took a quick 15 coffee and snack break at a local cafe and headed on way to the monasteries. We visited two of the monasteries (because they have shorter hours during the winter season so we can only visit 2) but we were able to stop by a lot of different view points to get great pictures of all the others. Note that walking up to the monasteries isn’t for the faint of heart. I’m a fairly healthy 30 year old and it was a bit rough for me. As long as you can pace yourself you should be fine. Overall it was a great experience and was definitely worth the visit.
Both Delphi and Meteora were stunning and we were blessed with blue skies and clear views. Our guide Evan was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. He added great value to the tour. Be prepared for long drives. I would have preferred better restaurants along the way, especially the giant overpriced one near Corinth.
Very well organized, event, very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We liked the tour, small group and personalized service.
