The company was so professional and the customer service was super. We had a problem due to the weather condition but they handled it very well.
Meteora is an amazing spot, the landscapes are breathtaking and the monasteries are so spiritual places.

I would recommend this tour company, because of the professional attitude at dealing with problems.
We have booked a tour to Meteora for 6 persons and because of bad weather conditions and technical problems in the train, It was not possible to do it. After informing the company, the Manager have called us back and he was extremely cooperative and helpful and send us the complete refund.
I do extremely recommend the Meteora Trip, we was there in Summer and it was an amazing spiritual experience and the landscapes are really breathtaking.
I fully trust this company, that whatever happens they will do their best for the customer.

Excellent trip. Everything went smoothly from the train to/from Meteora and the tour itself. The guide (sorry I forgot his name- brown hair and beard on November 11th) went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience. He had it well timed and had tons of knowledge to share. Highly recommended!

All good here nothing to complaint about! Since the thickets purchased to the end of the tour where they left me close to the train station to travel back to Athens. The bus was comfortable and the guide was expert was very nice. Visited 3 monasteries and some hotspots and the region.
Well worth it!

Wonderful experience! So happy we took this tour, such a beautiful place! The monasteries we visited were beautiful inside and out. Getting into the monasteries was tough at times with many steep stairs/pathways but well worth the effort. Chris, our tour guide, was very nice and personable. There was time to buy food right before and after the monastery tours.

We paid extra for first class seats which were in a private compartment seating six. There were four people including us on the way there. Met someone from Athens and the Netherlands. On the way back, we got the entire compartment to ourselves.

This tour was well worth doing! We were only in Meteora for a day, and didn't know anything about the area before arriving so decided to do a tour so we could see as much as possible in one day. We chose the evening tour as the days were quite hot and we didn't fancy walking in the heat, and we also weren't too bothered about going inside multiple monestaries. Our guide was fantastic, he could answer any questions we had about the area on top of his super interesting general knowledge he shared with us. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting meteora.
