        Spectacular scenery accompanied by great local knowledge
        The outing covered so many sights in just a morning, but without feeling rushed. The monasteries and geology were like nothing we had ever seen. Our guide, Katarina, was knowledgeable, interesting and kind. The minibus was air-conditioned and comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to others

        Stunning views, beautiful hike and a well-informed, charming guide.
        This tour exceeded our expectations with a knowledgeable local guide, beautiful trails through the mountains, and stunning scenery. It was a fabulous way to see Meteora, and extra special to view the sunset from the top of a rockface. We thoroughly recommend this tour, but be warned that it's not an easy hike, with some steep paths, and a decent amount of uphill terrain.

        Meteora sightseeing at it's best.
        Meteora trip, boutique travel experience. This company provided good communication and were very punctual. The guide, ( George) in English, gave the group very good commentary throughout the tour. He was also very mindful of everybodies health and well being after each hike up and down all the stairs throughout all the monasteries. The bus driver should also be commended for his quality driving skills negotiating through large volumes of traffic making us all feel safe. Thank you for such a great experience.

        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.

        A long day, but a memorable experience
        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.

        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.

        Full-Day Meteora with Greek lunch
        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.

        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.

        Must-do daytrip from Athens
        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.

        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!
