Trikala is a city about 21km away from Kalampaka. Because of that, we do not offer pick up from there. You can catch the local bus to Kalampaka, which runs regularly and come by our offices here to start the tour.
First of all, keep in mind that, since every monastery closes on some days of the week, we do not visit the same monasteries every day. The monasteries we usually visit though are the following: Meteora Half-day Tour: Great Meteoron, Varlamm and Rousssanou Sunset Sunset Tour: St. Stephen Meteora Hiking Tour: Great Meteoron, Ypapanti
All our bus tours run regardless of weather. If we are forced to cancel an activity because of extreme weather conditions, you have the option to change date or switch activity or cancel and receive a refund.
The pick-up time for all our tours is the same as the meeting time, indicated on your vouchers and our website. Please note that there may be a slight difference of 5-10 minutes between that time and the actual pick up time, depending on the number of pickups we have scheduled. Please be ready 10 minutes prior to your trip in order to facilitate that.
You can make a booking with us literally at the last minute! Just keep in mind that there may be no seats left on the tour if you do that! We recommend booking at least one week in advance, in order to have the best chances of finding availability.
We have split our tours tom morning and afternoon ones. Furthermore, all our tours visit different places at Meteora. This way, you can combine any morning tour with any afternoon tour you wish! All all-time-classic combination is the Meteora Hiking Tour in the morning and the Meteora Sunset Tour in the afternoon.
We did both a private tour and a sunset group tour, in addition Travel Meteora arranged the train tickets from Athens and the pick up from and back to the train station. The tours were informative, professional, the monasteries are impressive, the culture and tradition are rich, the views are magnificent and the landscape is spectacular.
Wow! Book this trip with this company-you will not be disappointed!! We took the Half-Day Tour and the Sunset Tour. As advertised, they covered different monasteries. The driver knew exactly where to stop for the best pictures and navigated the winding roads beautifully. The guides were engaging and thorough in their knowledge. We were appreciative of the complimentary cold water, the air conditioned small bus, and curb side pickup at the hotel. We have several friends traveling to Greece soon and we recommended this company to them.

Our trip to Meteora was organised by VisitMeteora company. They were exemplary. All pickups were punctual, vehicles were safe and immaculate, drivers careful and courteous and the guide Vasilis was thoughtful, and provided relevant information in an interesting manner. In addition, on arrival in Meteora we had an emergency situation and the office staff and manager couldn't have been more helpful.
We have traveled extensively and we believe this company is everything and more that a traveler could want.
Meteora Guide Lights the Way on Cloudy Day
Meteora was a highlight of our Greece vacation and the Meteora tour was key. Even though we had a rainy, cloudy day that obscured the amazing views, our guide, Vasilly, provided the commentary that made the tour so worthwhile. And, of course, the visits to the monasteries were fabulous and did not depend on weather. I felt fortunate that the St. Barbara monastery, aka Rousaneau, was open that day and lit a candle to my name saint. Later that afternoon, my prayers were answered as the clouds lifted and we returned to take in the incredible, otherworldly views. Those sights will be imprinted on our memories forever.
