This is an amazing site and a fantastic tour. The Meteora monasteries are breathtaking, but the expertly guided tour adds several more levels which transformed our experience and appreciation of the site. The guide was vastly knowledgeable about history, religion and culture and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The visit to the byzantine church was also very informative and enlightening for us. There was time for only a single monastery but we visited another one on the next morning and it was enough for us.
The bus picked us from the hotel right on time, and was very clean and comfortable.
Highly recommended!! If you've come all this way to see Meteora, do yourself a favor and enjoy it to the fullest with a tour.
This tour was amazing!
We had the most amazing time on this sunset tour! We were so worried because it had been raining earlier in the day but the skies cleared and we saw the most beautiful sunset! The tour guides were awesome and visiting the monasteries were great. Our only regret was that we didn't spend more time in this beautiful area during our vacation in Greece!
The site is breathtaking, the Monestaries were stunning and Dimitrius was knowledgable, extremely friendly, accommodating and just passionate about his job. You can listen to him for hours.
Please excuse the all the adjectives but if you can't tell I truly enjoyed it.
Recommend the panoramic and monastary tour in morning and definately take this tour to really get an excellent overview of the area and its history. Our guide Jim really made this tour special. His extensive knowledge of the history of the area, especially when he gave us a personal in depth tour of the byzantine church in Kalambaka, really helped everone apptrciate the rich history of the Meteori region. Jim also offerred to take everyone's picture in his own fun way and answered everyone's questions.
If you have extra time in Greece, go to Meteora....It's a special place. Arrange a tour of your choice with Viator and spend a night there. Don't try to do a visit in one day....it will be too exhausting. It takes 5 hours to get there from Athens, both ways, either by train or bus. Train feels like it takes forever....bus is more pleasant with a 20 minute stop to get off bus and unwind with food and/or drink.
We did sunset tour which was very good and well organized. Tour guide spoke English and was very informative. At the end of tour you'll be ready to relax with dinner and/or drinks at center of town. I would book again with Viator for other vacation tours.
P.S. If Greece wishes to have tourists visit Meteora, I strongly suggest a faster way to get there and return from Athens.
Our tour was informative and entertaining! Our guide grew up in the area and had personal anecdotes as well as an in depth knowledge of the sites we visited. He was also able to recommend further activities for the remainder of our stay. The driver was friendly as well, offering to take photos. The van was comfortable and our pick up and drop off were timed perfectly, making this a no-hassle excursion. The sunset was gorgeous although not exactly what we expected as the skies weren't perfectly clear. This trip was a perfect introduction to the area.
There are few places in the world quite as beautiful as Meteora. Not only is it a wonderful place, but the people are friendly and happy and there is a strangeness that makes it all so much more interesting than most places. For this tour, the guide was great! We were picked up at our hotel in a very nice van. Both the driver and the guide were excited and enthusiastic. They were happy to answer questions and took us to so many beautiful places I almost got burnt out on gorgeous vistas. There is no way not to do this tour if you make it up here. It was fabulous!
Excellent service! Guide and driver picked me up at the train station and even stopped on the way so I could get a take out lunch. Very friendly and informative guide and the bus was comfortable. You will probably want to stay in the area and spend an extra day so you can walk some of the Meteora trails.
Nice experience. covered major sites for photo shoot. Amazing view from sunset point as shown in the site.
