Great guide! It was nicely paced, he was able to answer any questions and it was a great way to see and appreciate Meteora.

Great local guide who was himself an experienced climber and hiker, who knew the history as well as the plants and geology of the area. It is an actual hike, although the gain in altitude is gradual.

Amazing trip...I must see if you're in Greece! The hike was the absolutely best way to see the area, with a great guide knowing the history and best places for photo's. I was a bit concerned about only going into only one of the monasteries, but turns out that was sufficient. The beautiful surroundings were the real draw!

I debated doing this tour vs just going alone. I was happy I did it, it was informative and took us back in an area where there were several trails and it might have been difficult to follow the path yourself. I was also able to get some advice for hiking on my own later.

Our guide was perfect, he even helped one of the team who lost his phone in the forest to go back and find it. He knows about the different locations, plants and animals. He was very nice and helpful. Pity I forgot his name. Thanks guys. Keep the good work, highly recommended. Planing to go back there again. Surely I would book with same company.

Quelle belle randonnée !
Notre guide était vraiment sympathique et respectueux de notre rythme de visite.
Nous avons pris le temps de nous arrêter pour discuter, prendre des photos, de nous restaurer.
Il nous a fourni beaucoup d'information. De plus, être dans ce lieu, c'est comme être dans une carte postale. Moment mémorable de nos vacances en Grèce.

De beste manier om op een alternatieve manier de kloosters te bezoeken. Een absolute aanrader !!!!
