Worth a day
Paul_V

Well worth setting aside a day for this tour. The amount of time we had in l Meteora was a bit squeezed because of the long train ride (4 hours each way), but the tour guide did an excellent job of time management.

Worth it if you have an extra day
Amar_B
, Nov 2021
This was a great excursion to see a town very different than Athens. If you have the time in your trip to do this it's definitely worth it, but you will be traveling by train for 8 hours, so it's a long day. Our tour guide Maria was awesome and super funny! The monasteries were cool as well, but mostly the views were incredible. Remember to pack some food with you because you won't get time to get food until the end of the tour, which I ends up being around 4-5PM and you start your train trip around 7AM.

A beautiful site made 1000x more meaningful

The host was amazing and made this tour so definitely worth it. She was incredibly kind, knowledgeable ,and was able to share a personal connection to the spiritual side of Meteora which made the tour so much more worth it for us. Not to mention that she even took my favorite picture of me at the cliffs at just the right angle and had me pose the right way.

Magical experience. Must visit.

Anyone who visits Greece must visit Meteora. Truly a magical experience. The sights are indescribable. It is worth the long train journey from Athens. The guide, Maria, was amazing. She recounted stories about her own childhood, weaving them in to the history of Meteora. She is warm, funny, and very friendly.

Outstanding Tour - Bucket List
Patti_C
, Oct 2021
Absolutely breathtaking! If you come to Athens and don’t visit Meteora, you’ve missed a magnificent opportunity to view and learn about a magical place. Maria was a phenomenal tour guide and was so knowledgeable. My only disappointment was that others did not show their appreciation and give her and our driver a tip. They did terrific and people in the tourism industry deserve some recognition.
