Upon your arrival in Kalambaka, at around 13:30, our English speaking driver will be waiting for you at the train station holding a signboard with your name on it to transfer you to your hotel. Late afternoon the VIP mini bus will pick you up from the hotel to join our ‘Meteora Sunset Tour‘. Admire breathtaking views of Meteora and discover the hidden gems of this place in one of the best tours of Mainland Greece.

Day 2: Meteora

For the next morning you may choose the activity you wish to do: the ‘Half-Day morning Tour of Meteora’ to see the main attractions, the monasteries of Meteora with a VIP minibus or the ‘Hiking Tour of Meteora’. Experience amazing sceneries and visit monuments of the Byzantine period, the monasteries of Meteora. After this morning tour, at around 13:00, the bus will drop you back to your hotel. The evening is free for you to explore the area on your own.

Day 3: Delphi and Return for Athens

Early in the morning a taxi will pick up from the hotel to take you to the train station. At 05:32 the train departs and arrives at Livadia station at around 09:00. There, an English-speaking taxi driver holding a signboard with your name will wait to transfer you to Delphi. Delphi is roughly an hour drive away from Livadia, so you will arrive at the archeological site at around 10:00 where you can spend many hours exploring the ancient oracle, the museum and the small town.

We are planning a trip to Meteora so booked a couple tours. Customer service is the best I've ever seen. Prompt replies and super helpful, especially valuable when booking flights, trains, etc. from the US and have no idea how things work in Greece. Am looking forward to our tours with this company!!:)
