My husband and I are from Arizona in the U.S. we stayed the night in Kalambacka (Divani Hotel) and did this morning tour the day after before driving all of the way to Athens later that day. There was plenty of time for everything. Katarina was our tour guide and Sikeas was our driver. Sikeas was hillarious, entertaining, and took amazing photos of the two of us together wherever we asked. Katarina was so informative, intelligent, and kind (we learned a lot of history that we would have missed without her as our tour guide). Wonderful tour! 10/5 stars.

This half-day tour of Meteora provided us with a helpful introduction to the region and its monasteries, allowing us to visit three that were open during our Tuesday morning tour: Varlaam, Roussanou, and Agios Stefanos. Our charismatic guide, Jim, happened to be a native of Kalambaka and offered a historical perspective on the evolution of the monasteries and the region's turbulent past. Some perks: Door-to-door hotel transportation and plenty of pictures of all participants courtesy of Jim.

The tour was so informative and picturesque. It was a great intro to monasteries in Meteora and the history of Kalampaka as well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and took amazing photos! Afterwards he also had a great recommendation for lunch. I would highly recommend this tour and in the future come back for the sunset tour.

The tour was great, the guide, Maria, was awesome, she spoke very good English and told us about the Geology, Mythology and the history of Meteora. She also shared her own experiences from growing up in the area, which was interesting and different. The only thing missing was that she didn't go with us to the monasteries which was quite a shame since we wanted to hear her stories about them. We recommend Maria very much, she is amazing and we loved her.

The trip was great. We were taken on a well equipped 16 seat bus (wifi etc for those that really need it). The trip was well paced and very well informed. Great insight into the past of the monestaries and the surrounding geological conditions. Plenty of time to look aorund 3 of the remaining 6 monastaries. An overall excellent trip.

It was amazing. The tour guide was so knowledgeable - Dimitri was his name. I am so sorry I was not able to give him a tip as I was the second person to get of the tourbus and it was such a rush to get of the bus as they were in a hurry to drop the other passengers off at their various hotels. Great tour
