Great trip. I highly recommend doing the tour. You can get a local bus but it only goes a little up the mountain and you still have to walk to all the Monasteries. I'm glad I decided on the tour to save my energy to get the steps up to the Monasteries. information given on the bus was great and the guide and driver were super friendly. You also get a free bottle of cold water which was very much appreciated

Great tour, definitely recommend to take it when in Meteora. Tour started and ended on time. We had a friendly driver in the minibus and a really very good guide telling us interesting facts about history of location and monasteries from prehistoric geological creation of rocks until present day, including practical life in monasteries and vincinity. They took us to best spots for taking pictures activelly offering to help us with group pictures themselves. We visitted 3 monasteries at various parts of the Meteora location which we found as just about right to get an overview. We were there with own car, but it was definitelly worth to take the tour.

We dont like organised tours, but for Meteora we have decided to book one and we were really pleased. Booking 1 day before online was easy&hassle-free (online voucher issued). Picked-up on time,.the guide-girl was lovely,had great English&was very passionate about Meteora history. Driber was lovely too:). So sometimes is good to hire specialist to have better experience than doin’ in on ur own:).
