Jaw Dropping Good Time

This is a magical place that I highly recommend seeing with a guide. Actually, don't do this without one. Katarina was a true pro who showed us the monasteries in the most efficient way possible. This driving is precarious and our driver Santos was A+....

Probably no better way to enjoy Meteora

Vassili on the mic and Kostas on the wheel took us to a formidable four hour trip in and around Meteora, its history, its monasteries, its geography, its nature, its architecture and its religion. If the place itself is beyond words, visiting it with this...

Well worth your time and money

Well-organized tour with excellent guide and driver. My small group of about 12 people was led by Jim, who was born and raised here in Kalambaka. He took the time to show us not just the tourist attractions (the monasteries and the rocks, of course),...

Great way to see Meteora

We were completely happy with the half-day sightseeing tour from Visit Meteora. Our guide Vassily and driver Kostas were perfect hosts. We learned about the history, geology and culture of the area while driving between viewpoints and monasteries in a super comfortable van. At each...
