Once in beautiful Meteora
Oct. 2021
This was amazing trip! The nature there is extremely beautiful. It can lighten up your life, to see life spring up in front or your eyes, to recognise that one life, that power, that force that energy turn into something beautiful!

Amazing Meterora
This was an excellent tour. The weather was poor when we started the tour so Dimitris, our guide, rearranged aspect of the tour so we made the best benefit of the improvement of the weather in the afternoon. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, its history, and the topography.

I thoroughly recommend this tour and this location to anyone visiting Greece. It is well worth the long day.

Thank you to Meterora Thrones - well done.

Great Tour and Friendly/Experienced Guide
Oct. 2021
The trip was well-organized, and the Meteora Thrones team were helpful and responsive in making arrangements for the tour. We loved the experience - Meteora itself is an amazing place, and our guide Chris was excellent in providing historical background, s well as insights into the geology and other interesting tidbits. We saw not only the monasteries, but several beautiful overlooks as well as some easy-to-miss features (for example, icons painted into a shallow cave high in the rocks). A great tour and we highly recommend the experience.

Fantastic experience
The guide and driver were very nice and friendly. Sufficient time to visit three monasteries inside and plenty of panoramic photo stops en route.
Train ride was long to and from Thessaloniki, but don't let this scare you off 😎

Fantastic!
The train strikes in Greece meant that we couldn't attend on the day that we booked and an unannounced strike the following day meant we had a last minute bus trip to Meteora. Throughout the confusion, the staff were so helpful and accomodating. The tour itself was fantastic. Kris was extremely knowledgeable and gave a brilliant overview of Meteora, its history and geography. The monasteries and the views were just breathtaking. An amazing experience.

They arranged everything perfect and take us to Meteora in a shiny purple colour Bus. The tour guide spoke good English and explained things in an interesting way. It can not be any better.

Best offer to choose
We chose to reach Kalabaka by train, at it was definitely the best decision: convenient departure time (10:04 a.m.), train clean and with pre-booked places, easy access to Thessaloniki railway station from city center. Train tickets were sent to us by e-mail, by Meteora Thrones. Cancellation was free up to 24h before the trip.
A small inconvenient was the need to change trains in Paleofarsalos, but this turned out to be a nice occasion to visit a Greek village and to rest a little in the station restaurant. We had there a tasty hot chocolate and sandwiches. The beautiful young lady who served us spoke English very well.
The purple brand-new Mercedes vans waited for us in Kalabaka station, with air conditioned and bottles of fresh water.
The trip lasted about 3 1/2 hours and the timing was excellent.
The visited places were really amazing. The stops were chosen such that we could visit not only the monasteries, but also we could admire the lanscapes.
A special mention for Vassilis, the young good looking and cultivated guide, who revealed us a lot of interesting things about the history and even the geology of the place.
Giorgios, the driver, also a good English speaker and a kind person, adapted the speed to let us view the best landscapes, and also provided us with fresh water.
In a word, everything was perfect and just as advertised.
A big "thanks" to all!
