      Stunning scenery and history
      Our guide George was very helpful and informative. The tour itself was well run and we had plenty of time to explore the 3 monasteries we visited, we also stopped a few times at different scenic areas and landmarks. Seeing the churches at each monastery was difficult as the lines were incredibly long, but that is not the fault of the tour operators, simply an indication of how busy it gets. Even without seeing inside each church, the tour was well worth it with stunning scenery and time to explore the grounds of each monastery we visited.

      Must do!
      The Meteora sunset tour was perfect with plenty of time for all parts of the program. Our guide Nicolas provided extensive information about the sights, was caring but not pushy. The alternative part, the hiking, was certainly a plus. George, our fantastic driver, supplemented the program with all kinds of interesting facts about the area. He drove very quietly so you could fully enjoy the route and the surroundings.

      Challenging but 100% worth it!
      Our guide was amazing, he was very knowledgeable about the caves, monasteries, and history of Meteora. He was also checking on all of the hikers to make sure they were doing ok and if we needed to take breaks. This hike was not a walk in the park, there are some steep rocky areas you have to traverse, loose gravel and dirt, a lot of areas of steep uphill trails, but it is worth the muscle fatigue and huffing and puffing! The views are amazing and the history and knowledge that is provided makes it the perfect activity to do other than going to the Monasteries. Make sure to bring water and good walking/hiking shoes.

      A must-do adventure!
      This entire experience was incredible! From scheduling—they were so accommodating—and they took care of everything! Detailed instructions were easy to follow. The boutique hotel in Kalambaka was excellent! The tour guides were so knowledgeable, friendly, and interesting. The tour van was clean and comfortable, very well maintained. Meteora is a must see for sure, but going with MeteoraTrip makes it even better!

      Great Tour Guide
      The guide gave us lots of information about the hermitages, the hidden monasteries and the Byzantine church. We visited St Stephen’s monastery which was very full of visitors. The sunset was lovely.

      Amazing experience
      Amazing experience. The organization was great since the tickets send by email to the itinerary explanation. Tours and guides were great on the explanations given. The hotel was fine. A little old for a 4 stars but the room had great views of the mountains. I stayed at kalambak but i believe saying at kastraki would have been even better as it is smaller and more beautiful. I truly recommend this trip.

      Amazing!
      This was an awe inspiring experience. Absolutely beautiful. Dimitris was very well informed and gave us lots of great info that we wouldn't have otherwise known on our own. Dimitris really went above and beyond when we got to the first monastery and I realized that I didn't have any Euros in cash to pay for the admission. He drove me back down into town to stop at an ATM...my bank card was struggling with an international transaction. So he gave me 20 euros to make sure I could get into the monastery with my family. Luckily once we got back to town at the end of the tour I was able to get him paid back along with a tip. His extra service and hospitatality was really amazing.

      Enjoyable trip with lovely lunch at the end.
      Very happy overall. The guide was very informative and the meal at the end was delicious. Visited 3 monasteries and stop to see the others and take photographs. Would recommend. Only criticism, not being warned of how difficult the entrance to the first two monasteries would be for someone older and unfit.

      Amazing tour! Vasilli was an incredibly knowledgeable and patient tour guide who was always available to explain the sites and answer questions. Georgio also provided a comforting and welcoming aura as the driver. Definitely recommend.

    The tour itself was great and we saw 3 out of 6 monasteries from the inside. The guide and bus driver were also amazing. This is a good option for a day trip from Athens but in hindsight, staying for 1 night in Meteora would have been better given that the long train rides from and to Athens were quite exhausting. However, if, like us, you could only spare a day, go for this tour!

    After taking a four hour train ride to Kalambaka from Athens we met our welcoming tour guide and started our journey. I have never seen anything quite like Meteora and the monasteries and likely never will again. It was stunning and the lovely weather on top was the icing on the cake. Both the tour guide and driver were very professional throughout. Providing interesting facts along the way - as well as making sure we had a good time and were comfortable. I definitely recommend making the trip and going with Meteora Trip!

    We had a great trip with Maria as our guide. It's a long day, but well worth it. The scenery is breathtaking. I feel like it was timed well too, we never felt rushed yet we were able to go inside 3 of the monasteries and stop for photos sometimes. I would recommend this trip because they make it so smooth and easy.

    Although Meteora really deserves more than just a day trip, I'm glad I squeezed this in! I had a random extra day in Athens before flying out, and so I booked this full-day, there-and-back trip to Meteora. The instructions were clear and everything went really smoothly. The lunch was more like a dinner, and it was delicious. Our group was small, so it was nice and relaxed and didn't feel crowded or hurried. Well worth it!

    Came for the views and was not dissapointed. Breathtaking scenery and monasteries, lovely guide Maria, great driver, small comfy bus, delicious greek lunch and great company of travellers made this trip truly memorable. Even a heavy rain on our arrival to the last monastery did not manage to ruin the experience.
    Highly recommended.

    Outstanding experience. Trains were suspended when we went but operator provided buses instead and that was good enough (train would have been nicer). However meteora plus the lunch plus the sights? Otherworldly! Absolute must see if you get the time. Some real LOTR/GOT vibes with the scenery. Be prepared for some light exercise as you tour tge monasteries and climb steps. But absolutely worth it. Tour operators were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommended

    We were taken from Larissa station to Meteora by coach and had a wonderful tour there. In Meteora we first had lunch and then we continued to the monasteries by mini bus. Our friendly guide enthusiastically talked about the monasteries and the history of Meteora. We visited three monasteries and had a beautiful day.

    We confirmed beforehand that we could find our way to the train station where the tour departs from. As it was, the metro was quiet at that time of morning and we found the bus without issue - all the tours to Meteora are using buses at present as the train line has been closed since about Aug 2023. We were told that the new highway had only recently opened, taking an hour of the travel time - as it was, it took from just before 8am to about 10:30pm to get there and back, around 8 & 1/2 hours of which was getting there and back.

    The bus trip there was uneventful, with a break around half way (both directions) at an OK roadside cafe used by travellers. Once we arrived in the Meteora area we were broken into smaller groups of around 9-10, taken for lunch and then off with a mini-bus and guide who took us around the sites, explained some of the history and gave advice. We had paid to have the included lunch - this was a wise option as the lunch was prior to normal lunch times in Greece and we may have struggled getting in to the few cafes/tavernas open at that time. Local guide and driver were excellent.

    A long day, but we had good weather with fine views so thoroughly enjoyed this world-class site.
