    The views were totally worth the 5 hrs to and 5 hrs fro travel :) accompanied by breathtaking sceneries too. Just really need to be careful of the pickpockets thieves beggars etc (pretty abundant everywhere in Athens though).

What To Expect

Depart from Athens Railway Station and take a train ride to Kalambaka, where you will be accompanied by the gorgeous and peaceful countryside views.

Spend a few hours exploring the various monasteries that have withstood the centuries, built by monks that used ropes, folding ladders, and the like to carry the materials.

    10 hours ride to and from Kalambaka, the town which holds Meteora. Seating arrangement is assigned by the local tour agency. The agency contacted us promptly and printed our tickets, and offered delivery service to hotel or self pick up at their branch. Guide was waiting upon arrival and promptly brought us to have a light snack and toilet break at the nearby cafe. Transport was fresh and clean. Time in Meteora felt very short eventhough we had 3 hours together. Guide brought us to numerous photo spots but time spent at the various locations were short due to time constraints. We had time to visit 2 monasteries. It rained during our visit so bring along an umbrella or poncho. If not, you can purchase from the vendors outside the monasteries. Excellent location and views, a pity we didn't have enough time.

    The scenery is not too bad. However, the 5 hours train ride to and fro is torturous. The guide was a little boring. It will be good if lunch can be incorporated into the tour.
  • NURUL ATIKAH HUDA 22 Mar 2018
    Worth the 5 + 5 hours train ride to and fro as the place was unique and really beautiful (:

    We had a good experience here, very beautiful.
  • Kai Yin 25 May 2018
    The sights are beautiful. There are two visiting schools and there are also several photo spots. The guides and drivers are friendly and explain English in a clear manner. They are sitting in benz coaches. Due to the remoteness of the site and the long train journey, the tour time is small and compact. The price is not the cheapest, but booking by klook is more convenient. However, the e-ticket of the itinerary is issued later, and it must be printed out. It will be better if it is earlier.

    After arriving at the train station on the same day, after seeing other tourists with a tour guide picking up, I found that I didn’t even have a tour guide to pick up. I was very disappointed! Finally we had to make a long-distance call back to Hong Kong to find out! Fortunately, at the end there were people picking up us, but it was a taxi. The driver! The driver did not receive my booking from the tour agency! Really hard! Finally, thank the driver for his kind hospitality!

    Even if it takes 10 hours to go back and forth, the magnificent landscape is absolutely worth the price! Highly recommended to buy the first class, the chair is very comfortable! The three-hour bus tour is very exciting. The bus stops at a private attraction to let you take pictures. The director's explanation is very detailed.
