I did the sunset tour on the longest day of the year so the sunset wasn't until nearly 9PM. However, the tour still started at 4PM so the guide, Vasilias, took us to everyplace he could think of to fill the time. As a result, we got a very comprehensive view of the entire Meteora area and he gave us all the history and so many stories. The sunset site was packed with people and there were no clouds so it wasn't too spectacular but it was still an enjoyable experience.

The guide was very informative. We visited both spots with nice views and locations of historical interest. The tour moved at a good pace, no rushing. I will only say that for some of the rocks and monasteries the light is not ideal during the time this tour runs. If you are a photographer consider visiting some of the spots at other times of the day.

Chris and his copilot driving the bus were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Chris studied history and is passionate about the area, having lived there all his life. Very good explanation of the monasteries and geology and never boring.

This was a great tour. We learned a lot in a short period of time and saw many beautiful sights. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. We highly recommend this tour.

Educational, funny and fun way to magically visit Meteora. Superb guide.
