A bad start - No Seat Ticket allocation provided tour company - and I was not listed on the passenger list. Left standing on the train for first 40 mins. Very stressful. Only on arrival in Kalambaka and finding my Name presented by the Tour Guide there did I have confidence of this booking. Seating problems were the same on the return train trip. Having said that - the Meteora experience is wonderful. The guide and bus driver were fantastic. This beautiful and other worldly destination is a must if one has the time when in Greece.
I highly recommend this trip. The train ride from Athens was fairly long 5-6 hours each way, but still well worth it for the quality of the sights. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable and the bus driver was an expert at helping participants get the best photos possible of the amazing landscapes.
What an amazing trip! Meteora does not disappoint, from the phenomenal vistas to the monasteries themselves. When you think of byzantine Greek Orthodox church murals...this is exactly what you see. It's breathtaking! Also, we had a great guide...Vasilly. He was knowledgeable, very nice and got us back to our return train with food and plenty of time to spare. We really liked him!!
This tour was one of the highlights of our Greek holiday. Our driver Vasilis was amazing, his knowledge of the area and the fact that he grew up here added so much to our tour. Vasilis knew the best photo locations and ensured that we got the best out of the tour.
aviator needs to give more information on how to take the train because it is to confusing. the voucher is the ticket, since the staff of the station has no idea how it works. for for a bit we lose the trip.but the pace is fascinating.
The Meteora tour was great and it is a must see. We took a day trip although tiring and a long train ride it worth the trip. Seeing two monasteries is sufficient and I will not recommend two days trip if you do not have free time to waste. The train was comfortable and the pickup at Kalabaka and the car and the tour guide guy were all great. We had 15 minutes to pick up something for lunch at Kalabaka. Some tourists had already a lunch picked up for them, which the tour guide person mentioned it was an option on the tour, nevertheless, I never had that option from Viator. The negative side was that after we were done we all were dropped off the train station and we were told that there is food available in train station's neighborhood, which it was not true. There was still sufficient time before the train departure and the tour guide could have stopped on the city for us to pickup a sandwich for a 6 hours ride back. The cost of Viator tour is high, the tour from Kalabaka is 40 Euro per person and the train ticket run trip costs about 40 Euro, totaling 80 Euro. The Viator cost was 115 Euro per person. Since Viator does not offer anything special for extra 35 Euro not even a bottle of water, I would recommend buying the train ticket and tour from the city separately. The other tour offers a free Gyro sandwich with the tour.
