Everything (including trains) was punctual. I received Train tickets on e-mail, catch the Train (switch the Train), everything according to information at web page. Our guide Tomas was excellent with lots of mithology tales, information etc. He speaks English very Well. The driver of the van was also very good. Metora Are “must see” in Greece (with Acroplis).

With the proper instructions, I was able to get from the Thessaloniki station to the site alone. The guide was very courteous, I grasped each one and confirmed that all were ready before leaving. They will guide you to the photo spots and take you to the sights efficiently, and each will give you enough time to walk around. It was very good.

We went by train to the meteora. We sat quietly on the train for about 3.5 hours and didn't have to worry about anything. When we arrived at the station Chris was waiting for us neatly. He showed us the beautiful places and knew a lot about the area.
