Full description
When the tourists have returned to their hotels you’ll be heading out on this late afternoon tour of Meteora. Visit a monastery and see other places that only locals know. Marvel at the amazing views and hear about the history and traditions of this special place.

On this unique 4-hour tour you’ll see the thousand-year-old Bandovas hermitages inside caves high up on the rocks and hear the amazing story of one of the most ancient churches in Greece, the Byzantine Church of the Virgin Mary in Kalambaka. The church building was once an ancient temple dedicated to the god Apollo.

Enjoy panoramic views from the perfect spot in Meteora to see the sunset. As the sun slowly sinks below the horizon the magnificent rocky landscape of Meteora comes to life. It becomes easy to understand why the site was chosen for these monasteries.
