An amusing and knowledgable courier who guided us smoothly throught the major sights. The order of the visits was sensible, with the most strenuous first. Each of the abbeys was special in its own way: whether it was the remarkable frescoes of the Great Meteora, the more intimate Varlaam abbey or the lovely formal gardens of St. Stephens. Varlaam paid somewhat more attention to the visitor experience with, for instance, appropriate music playing in the antechurch and clear walkways to help visitors move around smoothly. Our courier was careful to make sure that the group were briefed on eating and drinking needs. The supply of water bottles were very welcome.
We had an amazing trip with Chris and Dinos. They were extremely knowledgeabble, helpful and made sure we were able yo see all of the monasteries. I also liked being able to go by train from Thessaloniki so we could relax and have space to move around rather than being cooped up in a bus for hours straight.
An awesome day trip! A must see/do! The tour company was great in arranging everything for the day trip. The train was easy. They met me at the train station. A great tour guide.
Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Tour guide Chris was extremely informative and had a great sense of humour.
Great logistics, time management and facilities. Our guide Dinos was most accommodative, attentive and knowledgeable.
