Full description

On day one of your tour redeem your e-ticket for the 07:57 departure from Athens railway station to Kalambaka. Embark on a scenic train ride through the Greek countryside and admire the beautiful landscapes. Around 12:03 arrive at Kalambaka train station, where our guide will be waiting for you, holding a signboard with your name. They will then transfer you to your hotel. In the evening you will be picked up from your hotel for the Meteora tour, which is really an amazing experience. Then you have free time to explore the city of Kalambaka. At 9:00 AM on the second day you will be picked up from your hotel and taken you on your selected tour. During this tour, admire how simply the hermits settled in the caves of the rocks a thousand years earlier and learn about the history, the myths and the secrets of Meteora that only your local guide knows. Then around 1:00 PM the minibus will drop you back to your hotel. In the afternoon you will have free time to explore the area on your own. Make the last day count in Meteora and take a morning walk on your own to the nearby Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushrooms Museum. Explore a rich collection of birds and mammals as well as an integrated, one-of-a-kind, Mushroom collection.

Afterward, head to the nearby Digital Projection Centre of Meteora’s History and Culture and enjoy a sensational 3D show-tour. Travel back millions of years and learn about the unique phenomenon of Meteora and wander through the monasteries and the surrounding area.

Visit a last cafe or restaurant in Kalabaka before heading back to Athens with the 18:22 train departure.

The train trip was a excellent idea to experience the landscape.

The trip on day of arrival was an amazing experience. The sunset and everything. Evelyn and Kostas were both great as guide and drivers. I would suggest that you think of something like taking people to the countryside instead of 2nddays to monestries and the 3rd day of just hanging around doing nothing while waiting till its time for the train to leave.... The second visit to monestries could rather be worked in on 3rd day while you show the people the forests and stuff on 2nd day.
