We visited two monasteries and a nunnery. Taking the train up the day before, we walked around the town and ate a late lunch. The views and the scenery were amazing and the history of area was interesting. Our tour guide was great, just expect to pay 3 euros at each place. We rode up on the train in A seat which made the trip more comfortable. Expect at the train station in Athens at night to have to haggle with the cab drivers some tried to charge 3 times the cost.

Everything met with our expectations, this is an incredible place and totally unique. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately the 4 star hotel was sold out and our 3 star hotel was nice in many ways. The included dinner was not especially good though. October is absolutely the perfect time for visiting Greece, the temperature is just right and there are fewer tourists.

The trip to Meteora was one of the most wonderful tours I have taken in any country and is highly recommended. We were issued first class train tickets and picked up at the train station by a taxi and driven to our hotel. The hotel was nice especially the staff and the dinner and breakfast buffet were good. But what made the tour really special was our guide James who was born in the area and our driver. We saw five monasteries visually and visited three. All three monasteries we visited were really interesting. We met other people on the train who were doing an independent visit and they saw only one monastery while we saw three in one morning! The information and commentary provided by James throughout the trip was interesting and entertaining.

We took the train into Kalambaka and stayed at the Divani Hotel. The train ride lasts about 5 hours, but the time is well-worth the trip. Meteora is simply amazing in history and for touring the monasteries. The overnight trip is important to be able to see the monasteries in the morning, as most of them are closed in the afternoon. Everything is taken care of on this trip - train tickets, taxi to hotel, and knowledgeable tour guide thank you Dimitrius!

While once in the town of Kalabaka everything went smoothly, getting there was not so easy. We missed our train and had to buy bus tickets to get to Kalabaka. They only phone# we had was for our taxi driver who helped. The tour of the monasteries was great and our guide was friendly, andl informed.
