We loved this experience! The company was kind enought to accommodate our short notice change of schedule. Our guide, Nicholas, was great - easy to talk to and like hiking with a friend. We started at the base of the rocks and slowly worked our way up to the sunset viewing point while stopping at some interesting spots and caves along the way, on trails that we'd never have known were there had we not been with a local. There was plenty of time for photos and Nicholas was completely prepared with bandages and cream after separate attacks from stinging nettles and thorns. He also offered us a tasty Greek snack around the halfway point. Our driver was excellent too and very friendly. I'd definitely recommend if you want the full experience of Meteora.

Thank you very much Nicolas for amazing hike, we learned a lot of stories and really enjoyed amazing views. Special thank you for a great entertainment for kids, and yummy local treats! We had a great time and will come back in a future! Highly recommended! Maria
