Meteora Full-Day Trip from Athens by Train
- Small group
- Duration: 14 hours
The visit was very entertaining and fun! When I came to Meteora as a child, I remember visiting monastery after monastery, which was fascinating but also a bit boring and repetitive, especially for a child. Now that I came back (20 years later) I was so excited to find such a great way to explore the area. This tour brings you to secret spots that you would never find on your own. Tells you stories that you would not find anywhere else. And takes you around Meteora on a bus, freeing you of the hassle of driving around and probably get lost. The guide was very knowledgeable and kind, and answered all of our silly questions about this marvelous place. I recommend the sunset tour, since (especially in august) can be very exhausting and unpleasant to spend so much time under the hot summer sun. The journey ends on a wonderful panoramic rock on top of the mountain, from where you can admire the lone monasteries, lost in the mist during the sundown. Stunning! That's a 5 stars from me! :)
It was good the only problems were, we were in a small full minibus so no social distancing was possible. We got to Dion and had about 40 minutes to look around. It’s quite sparse and large so there just wasn’t enough time to see it all in favour of having a coffee at the cafe nearby. The rest was exceptional especially the waterfall on Mt Olympus.
A relatively long day to reach the amazing sites of Meteora monasteries as the round trip transportation from Thessaloniki takes 5-6 hours. However, the places are not crowded with rejuvenating serenity. The lunch restaurant also has an amazing view of caves.
we had the most amazing day on this tour. I feel like everyone should see the meteora at least once as it is truly a breath taking place. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable and I highly recommend this day trip!
Very interesting and enjoyable day, great value for money and a must visit place, our guide Dmetri was very informative and very good hosting skills, a joy to be in his company, made everyone welcome
