Well organized. Friendly guide and driver. Long bus ride but Eleni, our guide, offered interesting commentary along the way, so that helped. Not a lot to see along the way, but Meteora is simply awesome! On the day we went, we saw Varlaam and Rousanou monasteries. Enjoyed both but Rousanou is very small and not as impressive as Varlaam. Disappointed to only have about 15 minutes at the viewpoint. There are so many tour buses and people trying to get photos, it's hard to get a chance to take it all in.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful day out to the monasteries. Our guide, Eleni, was very informative and kind with our children, and our driver was wonderful too. The trip was well organized and we all enjoyed the meal in town after. It is a long ride, but the sights are interesting and the guide provides information on the way to help you understand what you are seeing out the windows.

Excellent trip!!! Wonderful guide Helen: thank you very much for your guidance and bringing us joy with the magnificent views of Meteora! The drive was comfortable, thanks to the driver. In overall one of the best trip we have taken!
