Majestic and Breathtaking view and Fantastic experience. If u have a day to spare in greece it is highly recommended to visit. It’s quite a trip from athens to Kalambaka about 4 1/2hrs journey but it’s worth it. It was misty when we arrived there but eventually it became clear and we saw the stunning view from the top. Out Tour Guide Chris is very funny there was no dull moment during the tour that’s why we enjoyed a lot and he’s very engaged and detailed while telling the history of the monastery and the whole place that’s make it amazing. He is superb. I definitely coming back again.

The excursion is good, complete, interesting. One drawback, however: the tour was in English for 95% of the passengers. However, placed in the last row compared to the English guide, I was in steréo throughout the excursion: the Spanish guide interpreter stood behind me and spoke very loudly; after having asked him to speak less loudly, this person was at the limit of politeness and did not move so far (he could sit near the only people speaking Spanish)!

We missed our first tour on Friday as we missed the train from Athens to Kalabaka. We got it rescheduled for the next day. The tour was great, we loved our guide and our driver - they have shared great knowledge and insights about the area and monasteries. We got picked up at the station & had a bite to eat and drink at a local cafe, went through a few different towns on the way to Meteora which was stunning! A must see. We visited 2 monasteries and 1 nunnery. It was a great experience not only to see how they build the monasteries & see the monks but also a spiritual experience for those seeking for one. We were able to light candle and pray. The weather was great, we took great pictures and saw even more amazing views. Overall, one of the best things we have done while in Greece!
