It is a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. Meteora has become a preservation ark for the 2000-year-old Christian Orthodox creed. The gigantic rocks of Meteora are perched above the town of Kalambaka, at a maximum height of 400 m. Only 6 monasteries have made it through the centuries, from an initial estimated number of 24. Mostly dating from the 14th to the 16th century, these monasteries were built by monks who were previously hermits in the area, living in individual caves. Once united, these monks took months and years to carry the construction material to the top of the rocks, using ropes, folding ladders, nets, baskets and much determination. After a long worthwhile experience exploring Meteora, you will make the journey back to Corfu and to your hotel.

An immersive experience. Some may find the trip too long, three hours one way. But the views and experiences are worth it. We also did the test there while we were walking around the town :). Look for discount coupons when shopping. It will be like a bonus.

Totally worth it! We changed the time to a sunset cruise and they were super flexible. Bring more alcohol if you want a good wine and champagne :) Themis was a great skipper and we had a lot of fun with him.

Very good organization, everything on time. The views and impressions are amazing. Gaios town on Paxos is beautiful! The cruise was extremely successful. I recommend ! It's really worth going!

The tour guide is multilingual, the itinerary is also very substantial, the staff is very friendly, the boat is also very large and comfortable, and I will come back next time.

Incredible trip, highly recommended, staff incredible and make you very welcome, also very knowledgeable about many things other then just the trip destinations
