Majestic and Breathtaking view and Fantastic experience. If u have a day to spare in greece it is highly recommended to visit. It’s quite a trip from athens to Kalambaka about 4 1/2hrs journey but it’s worth it. It was misty when we arrived there but eventually it became clear and we saw the stunning view from the top. Out Tour Guide Chris is very funny there was no dull moment during the tour that’s why we enjoyed a lot and he’s very engaged and detailed while telling the history of the monastery and the whole place that’s make it amazing. He is superb. I definitely coming back again.

This was an excellent tour with a great guide. Chris was very knowledgeable and provided so much information along the way. I highly recommend taking this tour!

Great guides and smooth organization ! The Meteora is a place you should not miss, it's breath taking. Thanks to the tour, we were able to make the most of it.

We had a great experience going to Meteora. The drive was long, but the experience of visiting the monasteries was worth it. Our driver was very helpful.

Such a stunning place. Lots of steps though & women should bring a skirt for the monasteries!
