現地ツアーもツアーガイドもよかった、減点は。。。
1日でアテネからメテオラまで行って帰っての弾丸ツアーで、満足できるかどうか心配しましたが、十分楽しめました。シーズンオフに行ったのが吉と出ましたー人が少なく、メテオラの神秘的な空気が感じられました。
ただひとつの難点は、鉄道チケットの席番が書いていなかったこと。
直前の予約だったからかもしれませんが、席番の表示がなかったため、行きは何度も席を替わらなければなりませんでした。結果的にはコンパートメントを割り当てられたのでよかったのですが、席番があればスムーズに座ることができたと思います。
それ以外は現地のツアーもツアーガイドもよかったし、紅葉も楽しめて非常に満足です。ありがとうございました。

The wonderful trip even with a very long train ride. The train stopped several times on siding to let another train pass through or so it seemed to us, adding about an hour to our trip--a very long day! The weather was the biggest obstacle--cloudy in Athens and continued to fog up and rain was pouring upon arrival in Kalambaka/Meteora. We went mostly for the views and sadly there were none to speak of. The museums were very helpful in explaining the Greek Orthodox belief. There were plenty of wet cats about the monasteries -- to keep the mice away? Our guide, Elios sp? was very informative and nice. He was easy to spot once we left the train. He did his best to keep us dry with umbrellas but the wind and rain were ferocious. We saw two monasteries and their museums/bookshops. The weather was miserable so we chose to go back to town for a nice meal in a warm restaurant. Food delicious. He took us through town and showed us local spots and stopped for a few pictures. The fog did part for a short while. He said that we had the best day out of a week of rain! I would definitely recommend Elios for your guide. Would be five stars except for the rain and the train ride. Train food not highly recommend. We traveled A cabin.

What an amazing trip! Meteora does not disappoint, from the phenomenal vistas to the monasteries themselves. When you think of Byzantine Greek Orthodox church murals...this is exactly what you see. It's breathtaking! Also, we had a great guide...Vasilly. He was knowledgeable, very nice and got us back to our return train with food and plenty of time to spare. We really liked him!!

This tour was one of the highlights of our Greek holiday. Our driver Vasilis was amazing, his knowledge of the area and the fact that he grew up here added so much to our tour. Vasilis knew the best photo locations and ensured that we got the best out of the tour.
