What people are saying about Kefalonia

Excellent! Our guide (Eleni) was very friendly and helpful and gave us so much info about our destination (Meteora) and more. The ride from Thessaloniki and back is long but goes by fast thanks to the small stops halfway. There you get about 45 or 50 minutes for each monastery but its enough to wander around, take pictures and enjoy the view. The restaurant after the trip was great. Delicious food and nice view. Definitely recommend.

Excellent excursion. This was the perfect way to see Meteora if you don’t have a car. Along the way, our guide provided a little bit of history of the areas we drove through. Our bus driver was very good, as well. It was the smoothest ride we’ve experienced. After visiting 2 of 6 monasteries, we had lunch at a taverna in Kastraki. The food was very good. Fresh ingredients throughout. We were very happy overall.

Our guide was very nice and also the driver. The trip started at 8 am and ends at 7 pm. Meteora is beautiful , and the restaurant was very good. I highly recommend about this tour

Everything is on schedule, there is no unpleasant surprises, guide is well prepaired and very nice

amazing day, our guide elena was excellent, highly recommend this tour
