This is probalby the best way to see Metora. Very efficient and comfortable bus. The trip covered everything I expected. Where it fell short was in the dialog. There was very little information provided on the monasteries, but I heard other guides in the area providing a lot of details.

The bus ride was really long. Approx 9hrs for round trip. Meteora guide - Clement was really awesome! There's quite a no. of stairs to climb to the monasteries. The view was spectacular.

Ottima La cordialità delle guide e la precisione della loro gestione. Discutibili gli autisti dei pullman che non hanno mai contato le persone a differenze di quanto fatto dalle guide in ogni tratta.

Very impressive experience, unique views. Monasteries are very special and interesting places even for non-religious people like me. Their history is rich and fascinating. Our guide was really smart and engaging. Due to problems on the train line, a substitution by bus was orgnaized. As expected, the trip to get there was the heaviest part. I recommend a multi-day tour if possible. Experience to be experienced!
