Dagtrip per trein naar Meteora vanuit Athene
Bij aankomst in Kalambaka wacht onze Engelssprekende chauffeur op u met een bord met uw naam om u naar de Meteora-kloosters te brengen. U heeft drie uur de tijd om ten minste twee of drie kloosters te bekijken. Meteora is een UNESCO-werelderfgoedmonument. De kloosters zijn gebouwd op pilaren van zandsteen, die de monniken eeuwenlang een totaal ontoegankelijke schuilplaats boden.
Het meest bezochte klooster is het heilige klooster van de Grote Meteoor, het grootste van de Meteora-kloosters. Het werd gebouwd in het midden van de 14e eeuw en is in 1483 en 1552 gerenoveerd en verfraaid. Het gebouw is het belangrijkste museum voor toeristen. De Katholikon (grote kerk) is gebouwd ter ere van de Transfiguratie van Jezus tussen het midden van 14e eeuw en 1387/88, en ingericht in 1483 en 1552.
Aan het eind van de dag brengt onze chauffeur u weer terug naar Kalambaka, waar u tijd heeft voor een wandeling en een lichte lunch (niet inbegrepen). Om 17:22 uur. De trein vertrekt vanaf Kalambaka en komt om 22:15 uur aan in Athene.

We were satisfied with the Tour and the Operator. The place was amazing and beyond our expectations. Overall satisfaction achieved.
Beautiful place, great tour guide.. Mariam showed us around the place, took us to 2 monasteries and informed us in detail about the history of the place.
Stunning location to do a day trip to. The 4 hour train trip (each way) was definitely worth it. Beautiful scenery. Informative tour guide was able to answer everyone's q questions.
Organised several months in advance, booked first class tickets for train leg, and bumped to economy a week before, terrible seats, backwards, didn't recline, beggars roaming the aisles...not at all pleasant on a four hour plus train ride..and same on the way back. Attractions themselves fantastic.
A place with absolutely stunning scenery. The guide is a local from the area so knows all the ins and outs of the place.
The train ride from Athens to Kalambaka was stressless comfortable and pleasant. Maria our tour guide was wonderful informative and very knowledgeable about the area having grown up in the area. She made the day for all of us. Great views stopping off and walking through the forest made this trip unforgettable. It was one in our bucket list. All worth it. Thank you Maria from Mary and Foti from Australia.
Maria was an excellent guide, very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Meteora itself was beautiful to see, and the monasteries and history were amazing to see and learn about.
The attraction itself was excellent. The train journey was too long. Lunch was not provided and there was little time to get something to eat before the tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and effective. The entry fee to the Monasteries and lunch should be included in the trip.
The train to the tour was suppose to be 4 hours there and 4 hours back . However, we started our tour late and arrived back about 2 hours later then scheduled due to delays. The taxi cab drivers waiting for you when you get off the train were mad the train was late. Therefore, they wanted to charge way more to make up for that money they lost waiting for the late train. To avoid high prices if your train arrives late, there is an app called beat. The tour though was amazing. They provided water, gave you time to eat, use ths restrooms, and take lots of photos. The monasteries may ask women to wear skirts. There was a 3 euro entrance free per person on two of the monasteries we saw.
It’s a long trip but we’ll worth it. If you have the time, I recommend going up one day, staying in a hotel and returning the next.
Simply an amazing tour. It's probably out of their control but wish we could have stopped in more of the monasteries.
Very intelligent tour guide who unswerving on many questions and went above and beyond just a tour. breathtaking views! very doing trip on the train 5 hours each way - truly worth of effort!
The few hours in Meteora were well worth this trip! We had Ilias as our guide. He was very timely and courteous and it was like our own private car. He stopped at the best sites for us to take photos and answered all of our questions. You can tell how much he loves his town and is proud of it. He even stayed with us for dinner and walked us right to the train door for our trip back to Athens. We saw two monasteries and stopped at plenty of other great viewing spots along the way. If you only have one day to visit Meteora you won't be disappointed.
I highly recommend this trip. The train ride from Athens was fairly long 5-6 hours each way, but still well worth it for the quality of the sights. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable and the bus driver was an expert at helping participants get the best photos possible of the amazing landscapes.
