Our guide was so pleasant and so knowledgeable. Definitely a great experience and worth doing. I just recommend bringing clothes to throw over your legs if you are wearing shorts. Women, being a skirt to cover so you can enter. But if you forget one, there are options outside of the monasteries. Great experience.

Jim, the tour guide, was great. Since he's local, he shared with us some of his childhood stories related to Meteora and the town of Kalambaka. It was fun. Also he's very knowledgeable about the rich history about the Monasteries as well as the hermit caves of Badovas. It's really worth the 4 hours 11 min of train ride from Athens. We were thrill with the beautiful landscape of the area and just can't stop to keep looking around the different formation of those stone mountains. Highly recommended to do the tour.
