It was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend the guided tour as I got to know about the amazing history of the Meteora's monasteries and also about the landscape of Meteora.

An incredible weekend in stunning Meteora
Sep 2021 • Couples
I came to Tripadvisor for the first time just to comment on my wonderful trip to Meteora. Everything went smooth as planned and actually exceeded our expectations. We were picked up at the train station, personnel and guides were polite, humorous and uplifting. Hotel was very accomodating with breakfast and we got a room with the best view possible, because we were a couple. The Meteora sunset tour was very interesting, guides shared all possible information with motivation and enthusiasm. They spoke perfectly English. What must be said, is that the hiking tour on Sunday morning stole the show. It was absolutely amazing and entertaining in a beautiful trail and fantastic views! Meteora is a unique, world class destination! Guide Dimitris was top, he is very passionate about his work and nature. My girlfriend and I thank him for the warm, exciting company and tour in the mountains. We still talk about our perfect weekend!!!

Not to be missed!
Aug 2020 • Solo
I thoroughly enjoyed, my time in Kalabaka and Meteora. I upgraded to 1st class because I travel Solo, but going through the second class cars they would have been fine. The scenery was beautiful once we departed Athens. Upon arrival, I was met along with many day trippers and taken to my hotel. I was allowed to check in and I had time to take a stroll and have a wonderful lunch.
At 4:30 PM I was picked up for the sunset Tour. The guide and bus driver were amazing. After breath taking views and visits to a Nunnery, I was returned to my hotel. The next morning I was picked back up, to see the monasteries up close. Not for the faint of heart. I was told this is the same tour that the day trippers take, just after 12 or so. I am glad I did this in the morning the lighting was magnificent.

Around 1:00 they stored my bag at the office and recommended a very good restaurant. I am not a shopper, so after lunch went to a coffee bar for ice coffee.
I highly recommend this tour if time permits!

When I left Kalabaka, the sky shed tears and blessed me with beautiful rainbows.

Amazing organization but imperfect Hiking
Aug 2020 • Solo
Both Christina and Dimitris were really informative of the stories and histories of the areas and monestries. The transportation and organization were excellent.
However I was disappointed that the hiking tour (2nd day) was short and easy. He explained it was too hot to walk uphill(Cos the day before ppl struggled) but I felt only downhill of 6km isn't qualified as 'hiking tour' really. I waited half hour for the bus in the end by doing nothing.

Meteora is a must to see
Aug 2020
An amazing 2-day all inclusive tour. The first day we visited 1 monastery and many different sites around meteora where we took incredible scenic photos. Our tour guide Demetris was very knowledgable and he gave us so much information about the scientific explanation of the creation of the meteora as well as the mythic one, what the ancient Greeks believed. He even picked wild berries from the mountain and offered us. The tour ends with visiting the rock where you see the sunset. The next day we had Christina as our tour guide who was also great. We visited 3 monasteries and we stopped at several places to take photos. Overall our experience was stress free due to good mannered and helpful stuff from the start to the end. Thank you guys.

Great package to see the best of Meteora
Jul 2020
I booked this tour because I wanted to see the best spots and have background information about the places without the need to rent a car. The package included travel from Thessaloniki by train, one night at a 4-star hotel (I was upgraded for free even though I hadn't even asked for it!) and 2 tours. Due to the Covid pandemic there were not a lot of tourists and I was alone for both tours! This means that I had a private chauffeur and guide all the time. Despite this the guides were awesome, they did not cancel or rush the tour, so I got I great experience overall! The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly, answering all my questions with a smile. Nothing to complain, this is really good value for money and I highly recommend it.

Mar 2020 • Couples
Train left on time from Athens. Met at station by our guide for first day Cristina who took us to the veey nice hotel. Sunset tour. Visited 2 monestaries. Lots of stairs but well worth the climb. Spectacular views and a very interesting 4 hour trip. Especially lucky as there were only 3 of us on the tour. After breakfast met punctually by Dimitri(our guide for hiking) and Cristina as she speaks Spanish. Wonderful hiking with very knowledgable Dimitri. Highly reccomend this trip
