Great tour to a fantastic destination. Sure, the trip is a little long, but it is very much worth it. Our tour guide Lazarous gave us a lot of information on the way there, during our time at Meteora we were free to roam around at our own pace, while our guide was available for questions. We visited two monasteries, as well as a viewpoint which commanded a view of five of the six monasteries still in operation. The lunch place at Kastraki is (as others have mentioned) somewhat expensive, but you are not in any way obligated to have lunch there. You can go into town on your own, or even hike back up the road. Right behind the restaurant (marked with a sign) there is also a little trail which loops around the base of the foothills and ends where a series of caves in the rockface begin. Can recommend doing this for those who don't want to spend a whole our on lunch. We were very pleased with the punctuality and professionality of the organization. A great trip in all!
Absolutely worth it the 3 hours bus trip to Meteora, the Views are really breathtaking, and also really incredible to see how the monks could build those monasteries, our guide was also very friendly and funny and gave us a lot of tips for our Stay in Thessaloniki
we had the most amazing day on this tour. I feel like everyone should see the meteora at least once as it is truly a breath taking place. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable and I highly recommend this day trip!
Very interesting and enjoyable day, great value for money and a must visit place, our guide Dmetri was very informative and very good hosting skills, a joy to be in his company, made everyone welcome
