Great tour! We went as a family with three kids ages 7-13. Kids did not complain once during the four-hour tour! The bus was clean, the driver was friendly and safe, and the tour guide Christos was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We visited two monasteries and a nunnery, with plenty of stops to take pictures along the way.

Vassilis was our guide, and he was wonderful!! He speaks English in a clear way, he knows a lot more than just the basics, he treats the customers respectfully and he is helpful and has a good sense of humour. The tour is very interesting and the views at Meteora are magical! Taking a tour in Meteora is so much wiser than driving on your own - not only because driving at Meteora isn’t that easy, but also as you get to hear all the facts while admiring the breathtaking scenery :)!

From hotel pickup to drop off, everything was perfect. The air-conditioned minibus with a safe driver, our guide took all travelers into consideration, we, as somewhat older travelers, did not climb to every monastery, but everything was explained to us and we are as far as it goes. The guide made many stops from where spectacular views could be photographed. The weather cooperated, so it was a perfect morning. I would book this excursion again at any time, it is really worth every euro.
