Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Spectacular experience with informative & helpful tour guide Anna. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wish to see more of Greece in a short timeframe. The bus journey to Delphi is nothing but breathtaking. And the journey from Delphi to Meteora brings a total different experience. I must say, most of the time, we are spent on traveling. But the guide shared a lot of history and stories along the way. Also, the view itself is worth the ride. There is also WiFi on the bus (but connection can be slow in the mountains). Overall, we enjoyed this tour.

    It was a great experience for both my Wife and me. The narrator and great driver (like a chauffeur) made the bus ride very comfortable and effective, with multiple rest stops, and stories. The Delphi and Meteora were must sees. Hotel and dinner stop for the overnight trip, were more than adequate, and wide distribution of food choices and desserts. Cost was appropriate. I have always been adverse to considering a bus tour. This changed my mind. An overnight bag was definitely a great idea, instead of our giant bags for our total 15 day trip.

    Clament was an awesome tour guide! The whole trip was something out this world. Seeing Meteora and learning about its history was surreal. The bus ride was comfortable, the pit stops were perfectly timed, lunch was pretty good and the time spent at the actual location was the perfect amount. Highly recommend.

    Meteora is an amazing experience and honestly Visit Meteora travel is the only people I would book with. Everything went smoothly and the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Honestly one of our best experiences while in Greece!

    Thank you Visit Meteora!

    The Meteora, Thermopylae and Delphi trip was an amazing experience. Sebastian is a very friendly and knowledgeable driver who went out of his way to make sure that we enjoyed every bit of the journey. He provided a captivating narration of the history of the landmarks and monuments we visited. There was plentiful provision of water and soft drinks kept cold in ice, and snacks. The ride took a few hours and the Mercedes vehicle was perfect for comfort. At the end of the trip, we were treated to a sumptuous Greek dinner included in the price of the tour. All in all, we will heartily recommend this tour to family and friends.

    Our group of 14 toured with Antony (guide) and Nikos (driver). The tour itself is great; you’re in the bus a long time, but the sites are amazing and the hotels were top-notch. Most important however, was the professionalism and skill of both Nikos and Antony. They were the best! Efcharistó!

    Very well organized with clear instructions for departure and pick up. Sunset tour was amazing and worth the overnight stay.We had our room at the Kaikis hotel and it was great too. They allowed us to leave our luggage after checking out on the second morning. We chose the hike in the morning but it got cancelled due to heat, and we ended up on another bus tour that was very repetitive. Guides were friendly and knowledgable and recommended us some great restaurants. A bit too long of free time before pickup back to Athens on the second day. Overall the sunset trip made the trip worth it, I just wish it was less repetitive the second day.

    I would highly recommend this amazing tour. The only drawback is it's a long day, starting about 7am and not getting home until 10.45pm. But it's worth it to be able to fit so much into a one-day tour from Athens. Going part way by train is excellent - it's more comfortable and you get some amazing views of the plateaus and mountains you travel through. The public bus is only perhaps 1.75 hours of the journey. The lovely Penny and Mr Stathis met us in a mini bus at Kalabaka station and from that point, we spent 5 hours without wasting a moment.

    We stopped at many amazing viewpoints during the day to really see the monasteries and photograph the stunning landscape. We also went inside 3 monasteries (St Stephen, Varlaam and Roussanou, but this is variable as different monasteries are closed on different days), and we saw all the other monasteries from a distance, and in between we had a quick but delicious lunch (not included in price). Admission to the monasteries is also extra, but it's only about 3 Euro each. Ladies do literally have to wear a skirt (not long pants) but the tour company provided those to put over our clothes.

    Varlaam and Roussanou had 100 - 150 steps each, but they were neat and not hard to climb. St Stephen is the only monastery with no steps to get up (there are small staircases inside). Great Meteoron and Aghia Triada have 300 steps. If you have very limited mobility, you can't 100% guarantee you will be able to see inside one, but your chances are good, and if the weather is ok you will definitely get to see them from the outside.

    Meteora is not like any other sight I have seen and this tour was the best way to see them - I can't imagine how it could have been better.

    The guide knows very well and tell you stories not only about meteora but also along the way.
    The trip was good without any issues and Meteora is an amazing place.
    The lady doing the english version of the tour inside the monastery was very knowledgeable about everything regarding the buildings, why the paintings are the way they are and etc…

    Attention to the dress code in the monastery, at least up to when we bought the trip there was no information in TripAdvisor‘s offer (ask then via chat if they don’t add it).

    We were delighted with the punctuality of the service, value for money, knowledge and experience of our guide Yiorgos.

    We took the drive to Meteora via the scenic route recommended by Yiorgos and we were able to see the magnificent landscape and agricultural aspects of the region including the Pindus mountains, the olive and peach groves and the fields full of sunflowers.

    On arrival at Meteora our driver took us to areas not witnessed by the majority of visitors which we found fascinating. The only downside was the number of visitors, mainly on coach trips, that made the monasteries slightly overcrowded but we visited during peak season. On return journey Thessaloniki we asked to visit Neraida and the lake of Polyfytou which we found utterly inspiring.

    The convenience and comfort of the private tour made our experience extremely enjoyable. Our transfers to and from the airport were equally comfortable and arrived as booked.

    We would not hesitate to recommend De Tours Transfers. Our very grateful thanks to Illias, Dimitra and Yiorgos for making this all possible.

    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.

    Excellent, well organised tour with perfect time keeping.
    Excellent tour guide and driver.
    Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with.
    The tour itself provides the opportunity to see amazing views and scenery and it’s hard to believe what you are seeing.

    In our opinion it is well worth taking this trip, you also get plenty of breaks for drinks etc but be mindful that it is a full day which is tiring.
