Half-Day Meteora Cultural Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the Kalambaka train station in the early afternoon, where your driver and guide will be waiting to pick you up in a Mercedes Sprinter minivan. Travel in comfort to reach Meteora with air conditioning, provided bottled water, and onboard Wi-Fi. Get your camera ready for a panoramic view of the area’s rolling green valley and dramatic cliffs with a brief stop at a viewpoint above Kalambaka.

    When you reach Meteora, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its cultural value, visit two of the monasteries built high up on craggy cliffs (entrance fee not included). Learn about the monks who created these hard-to-reach sanctuaries for privacy and safety while touring the interiors with your guide. Plan to spend about 45 minutes at each site, and then climb back in the van for a driving tour past the outside of the other monasteries, where you’ll stop briefly to hear an overview of their history and legends.

    If time permits, make a quick stop in the town of Kalambaka before the 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at the train station in the late afternoon.

    We finished off our short visit to Kalambaka with the morning half day cultural tour, in a small bus, with our guide Katerina and driver Dinos. The tour visited numerous sites, many photo opportunities and 3 monasteries, which, whilst similar, have significant differences too. The...More

    A fully equipped and experienced team of professionals. An amazing experience if you find yourself at Trikala or Kalampaka. Seek out George, The Great Driver and Eva, The Beautiful Guide and you won't regret it.
