Overview
Access the World Heritage Site of Meteora without the stress of train tables or bus transfers on this day trip from Thessaloniki. Starting at your choice of central meeting points, you’ll go straight to the remote monasteries in an air-conditioned coach or minivan, enjoying views of the mountains and plains along the way. Tour two of the most impressive sites with a guide for a more in-depth experience than you might get on your own.

Dear Jarka thank you very much for your nice words and for taking the time to send them. :) It's so nice for our team to see satisfied travelers willing to join us again and again! Meteora is indeed a special part of the world in our world, but of course we have many other beautiful excursions as unique as Meteora, like Pozar Hot Springs-Edessa Waterfalls or Mt. Olympus-Ancient Dion that you can join and have a great time as well :D We are sure that you will find Lazaros in these trips as well! So we hope to see you again soon!

Dear Lars thank you very much for your nice words! Such positive messages encourage us to continue offering high quality services based on the ancient roots of Greek hospitality and combined with the endless beauty of nature and its miraculous artworks! The human intervention on the gigantic rocks of Meteora is indeed a "must see" in North Greece! Lazaros is an absolute lover of Greek nature and a free spirit always happy to transmit his passion and interesting stories to every traveler! We hope to see you again in the future!
