This is a full day experience, so be prepared and rest up. That said, it was easily one of the more interesting tours I’ve been on in Europe. Worth it to go with a guide who can answer your questions and shed light on the history of Meteora. Highly recommended.

Fantastic tour!

The Key Tours group was amazing! They were able to rebook us on the next day when we found out our train from Athens was delayed over 5 hours! Meteora is amazing and the tour guide and van driver were so helpful and informative! The train ride allowed us to see the geography of Greece even though we stayed in Athens our entire visit! Plus some delicious food in Kalambaka! Thanks. The rock formations, nunneries, monasteries, hermit monk caves were all such a great learning and breathtaking experience.

Amazing Day in Meteora

Our day trip on the train to Meteora was spectacular. The train was very easy to navigate with no transfers needed. Our guide, Katie, met us right at the station as promised. Every stop was so memorable it is hard to even know where to start. Our guide Katie and our excellent driver were the best part of the tour. Katie was absolutely magnificent and our driver was a genius navigating those mountain roads. I would definitely recommend this trip to any visiting Athens.

The spectacular scenery and the monasteries perched on top of the rocks. Some climbs were very tough. Not suitable for those who have difficulty walking.

Worth a day

Well worth setting aside a day for this tour. The amount of time we had in l Meteora was a bit squeezed because of the long train ride (4 hours each way), but the tour guide did an excellent job of time management.

Worth it if you have an extra day

This was a great excursion to see a town very different than Athens. If you have the time in your trip to do this it's definitely worth it, but you will be traveling by train for 8 hours, so it's a long day. Our tour guide Maria was awesome and super funny! The monasteries were cool as well, but mostly the views were incredible. Remember to pack some food with you because you won't get time to get food until the end of the tour, which I ends up being around 4-5PM and you start your train trip around 7AM.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend taking this tour during the colder season. Fewer people means no waiting times and better pictures.
