A complete and beautiful trip. We went by ourselves to the train station without much difficulty and found everything fine. The workers at the station help a lot and many times you just have to follow all the tourists to know where to go. The trip is 4 hours and the train is a bit uncomfortable. I recommend taking a travel pillow. They have chargers too and a bar. Once in Kalambaka we were met by Krissa, the guide. He was very nice and informed us of everything very precisely. You can tell he was competent at it. We visited Gran Meteora, Vaarland and San Esteban. We liked it a lot even though they made us wear a ridiculous skirt when we were covered to the top because of the cold it is, but hey. Incredible views and a good atmosphere. The stairs are not difficult in winter (in summer I imagine they are). In general, everything was fine, we didn't have any problems with anything and we left very happy. The return train quite tiring but not bad.

If you are going to do a day trip, this is the perfect one. An amazing mix of archaeology, history, coastline, views and time in a beautiful city to shop or lunch or wander at leisure. Our guide Athena was knowledgeable and friendly and our driver was very gentlemanly and kind. The group was small and I met some great fellow travellers from all over the globe. Brilliant day

Great tour, so well organised, we couldn’t find our driver so I emailed and I got a immediate response and my driver called and we were reunited. This tour is well worth the money. I would highly recommend it.

Our guide was excellent. Loved that it was a small group. Had the ipad with ear phones so you can go at your own pace. Really worth the experience

It had amazing day , katarina is pretty knowledge ,love it
