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.

    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.

    My husband, Phillip, and I enjoyed the most remarkable tour of the Basilica and the Monasteries and Meteroa with our brilliant guide, Dimitris. He is an in-depth story teller and historian with a wonderful sense of humor. He knows how to pace a tour. And, he is responsive to any questions. He even guided us to a spectacular meal as we finished our tour. Dimitris’ English is superb. If the scale is 5 stars, we would give Dimitris ten stars with a golden light in each one. Judy

    We were picked up on time at our hotel and immediately felt comfortable with our guide Alex. On our way out of Athens he offered some history and pointed out monuments as we passed. The 4 hour ride went quickly, Alex allowed us time to sleep and also gave many facts about the countryside as we passed. This was during the heatwave last week and he made sure we had plenty of water and started w the easiest monastery to enter first. He offered suggestions as to which ones we might want to visit, took us to scenic spots for pictures and was always waiting when we exited. We elected to see 4 monasteries and he didn’t rush us to get back on the road as we had heard of some other tours. We then went into town and had a delicious lunch at a place he recommended. On the long ride back we stopped at Thermopylae and took pictures and he told us the historical significance of the site and the hot springs. Also, we had shared some of our itinerary in Athens and he text us later to give some recommendations on places we mentioned. Would certainly recommend using LS Tours and specifically Alex. We were worried about the long day and the heat and Alex made the experience easy and memorable.

    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 were fortunate to be the only guests for these two days. We had a total of 9 hours of guided tour and visited a total of 4 monasteries, the hermit caves and the spectacular sunset rock over the 2 days. We had sufficient free time to enjoy the town as well. The local knowledge from Antonios and Joanna was so interesting and made this trip an experience we will remember for a lifetime. This is a MUST do if you are thinking about visiting Meteora.

    What a wonderful way to spend the day! The views are absolutely breathtaking.
    Our driver was very knowledgeable and shared so much information.
    I only wish there was more time. The private tour was the only way to go!
    I can not imagine this trip on a big bus tour.
    If you can afford it, go! you wont regret it!

    The operator informed me that rail was unavailable and asked if I was still keen to proceed traveling via intercity bus. He gave very clear instructions and the pickup at Kalambaka was prompt. I like how the guide and driver were very experienced and took many wonderful photos for me which is rare particularly when I am traveling solo. The bus from Kalambaka to Thessaloniki was the same vehicle even though two separate tickets were issued and made it easy for me not to have to change bus at Trikala station. I recommend visiting Meteora during autumn as it is offpeak (lesser visitors) and and the weather is cooler. The whole tour takes a very long time and be sure to stay hydrated and keep some snacks with you when you are planning to join this tour.

    We spent a day hiking around Meteora on our own, but would have missed out on so much of the depth of the experience if we had not taken the VisitMeteora tour! Dimitrius our guide and Sotos our driver were amazing. They shared the history of each monastery, the hermitages, the details of the towns of Kalambaka and Kastraki, the geological formation of the landscape, the religious and military context of the area, and even great restaurant recommendations. It was fantastic.

    Amazing experience, the driver and tour in general was 10/10. I highly recommend getting this tour not just for the beauty of Meteora but also for the convenience and knowledge a private tour brings. Our driver was very accommodating which was very important for us since we travel with a 4 year old. Was truly an amazing experience

    Pretty good....I would recommend this tour. Our guide was Dimitri and he even took us to the Battle of Thermopylae memorial.....Dimitri spoke very good English which was helpful, and was quite knowledgeable about Greek history. A pleasure.

    Apart from the Monasteries, the Meteora Food and Wine tour was an absolute highlight of our Greece vacation. We were treated like royals on a personal tour of three experiencing places and food not available to the general holiday maker. A unique experience and definitely worth it, even at double the price.
