We were not impressed by our tour. We were expecting to learn much more about the monasteries, why they were built, some historical facts... anything. Basically it is a bus ride between the monasteries. Rent a vehicle for the day and you will learn much more.
It's a must see place! wonderful and one of a kind! The guide is very knowledgeable and patient. My friends only taught of Santorini and Mykonos and other beach islands of Greece. They were amazed that there's such thing as monasteries on the top of the mountain. The pictures I posted online looks like computer generated views. There's an ongoing mushroom festival at night when we're there. They cook mushroom and grilled meat and bands playing music. The place is like a modern day fairy tale
Unfortunately, it was raining and/or very cloudy during our visit. We made the best of it. We had a rental car and logistically we did not need to do a paid tour. However, Chris did a Fantastic job at providing information in between drives to the three different monasteries. It did clear a little later that afternoon and we drove back up to the monasteries to get better pictures. Overall, a great visit!
Very good tour. Well organised and very knowledgeable guide who provided an immense amount of information about the monasteries, the local area, the church, and historical events. Just remember to visit most monasteries you need to be fit. There are hundreds of steps and some are quite steep so take your time.
The tour guide was very informative. It's pretty easy to get to the monestaries on your own from Kastraki or kalambaka but the guide provides more history and knows a lot of great spots to take pictures.
Very nice overview of 3 of the monastaries in an air conditioned coach. Guide was knowledgable and provided some historical insights into the area as well as offerred to take our pictures at the various stops along the way.
This was a very interesting tour. Our tour leader was very knowledgeable and we learnt more than if we had just gone on our own. The minibus picked us up from our hotel on time and returned us. We highly recommend this tour.
