Firstly, I want to say that our Guide, Nikolas was absolutely brilliant. The details provided were interesting, without going overboard, and managed to keep me attentive throughout the visit (but that's not easy when you have ADHD). The site itself is absolutely breathtaking, and the sunset (depending on the weather, we were lucky) is magical. The organization is well thought out, but above all Nikolas was able to integrate us into this schedule by asking us what our needs were.

Great tour around Meteora! Nicholas (the tour guide) and George (the driver) were absolutely professional, helpful and kind with the grourp. I would recommend them.
