Two day Delphi & Meteora Tour from Athens

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 4.7 out of 5 based on 80 reviews

Do not miss the opportunity with this two day tour from Athens to see and visit the majestic Meteora grey rocks and its  cliff-top monasteries. 

The first day you will arrive at Delphi  around noon.  Famous for its theater, Temple of Apollo and ancient ruins, Delphi was considered the center of the earth and the universe, and played a central role in the classical Greek world. Visit  at the archaeological site and the TEMPLE of APOLLO famous for its oracle. In the afternoon after lunch depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia (short stop), Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka (a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the METEORA Monasteries (short stop for souvenirs). Overnight stay in Kalambaka.

The second day leave in the morning for nearby Meteora for a tour of the cliff-top monasteries to visit two different BYZANTINE MONASTERIES* built on top of rock towers and providing fantastic views over the plain.  Meteora is included on the UNESCO world heritage monument list.

The monasteries are perched on top of towers of sandstone, which for centuries provided totally inaccessible retreats for the monks. Meteora is considered one of the most beautiful area of mainland Greece, and its monasteries are one of the country's most unique attractions.  By your return you may visit optional a factory of Byzantine style icons. Return to Athens passing by the heroic monument of Leonidas king of Sparta  in THERMOPYLAE (short stop for photos).

The tour returns to Athens in the late afternoon * Normaly we are visiting Great Meteoro Monastery and St. Stefanos. Every Tue. we are visiting instead of Great Meteoro, Varlaam monastery.

“This tour is a MUST! BeautyFULL views of Greece landscape!” I went to Greece for spring break, and stayed in Athens. I was originally going to do an overnight tour of one of the Greek Islands, but opted to do this tour instead (since it wasn't quite yet summer weather for the beautiful island beaches). I am SO GLAD I chose to do this tour instead! The views riding along the mountain, hills, and valleys, on your way to Meteora, are SPECTACULAR! First, we stopped to see the ancient ruins of Delphi. After looking around the site for about 1.5 hrs, we headed on the second part of the tour to Meteora, were we stayed the night at a hotel in Kalabaska (a nice little town filled with local restaurants, bars, coffee lounges, etc). The next day, we visited two ancient monasteries perched (literally) on top of the mountains. There are no words to describe how "BeautyFULL" Meteora is! Our tour guide, Marianna, was awesome and full of historical knowledge, and our bus driver had great driving skills (lol). I would DEFINITELY recommend this 2-day tour!

“...perfekte kombination zweier highlights in griechenland” die bustour kombiniert zwei absolute highlights in griechenland, wir waren eine 17-er gruppe, der dafür bereitgestellte mercedes-kleinbus modern und geflegt, man wird morgens vom hotel in der stadt eingesammelt (absolut pünktlich) und am ende auch wieder abgesetzt, der guide ist sehr informativ und auch nicht zu aufdringlich, man kann an den sehenswürdigkeiten ihren erläuterungen folgen oder auch einfach eine eigene entdeckungstour starten, eintrittspreise alle enthalten, manchmal würde man sich einfach ein paar mehr fotostops an "nice-spots" in den doch recht spektkulären landschaften rund um delphi und in meteora wünschen, zumal parkplätze immer wieder vorhanden sind, so rauscht man häufig an wirklich traumhaften fotochancen vorbei, was manchmal echt schade ist, die 4-sterne-unterbringung entspricht den erwartungen und am morgen vor dem balkon plötzlich die mächtigen berge zu sehen, ist schon beeindruckend, dinner ist buffet, typisches bustour-ambiente, preis-leistung absolut i.o.

The tour was well guided and was one of the best I have experienced. The guide (Maria) was very professional and knowledgeable. The tour was a complete success due to the richness of the history and the stories we got to hear about the place. The driver (Stavros) was very courteous and safe. We had an excellent time. I would highly recommend them.

This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip! The bus rides were peppered with facts about the places we passed. It was also a good time to nap off the jet lag or read a good book. There were plenty of breaks on the bus ride for coffee and the bathroom. The guided tour of Delphi was very informative with some free time to enjoy and take pictures. Meteora was probably my favorite place of all of Greece (that included visits to Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete). Absolutely stunning all around. Definitely worth the visit and highly recommend this excursion. The only reason I give this tour is 4.5 stars is due to the fact that we chose the better hotel choice but didn't find the hotel rooms all that nice. The hotel itself is really nice, and you could have views of the cliffs from the rooms, but we weren't selected for one of those. Although we didn't see the other hotel, I wouldn't recommend the better hotel and would save some money.

Tour was great, hotel was good & included breakfast. Met heaps of great people. Stopped at a few different places for lunch, coffee break or to take photo's. Both guides were friendly & new what they where talking about.

“Super Landschaft aber lange fahrt” Die tour ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen! Man muss sich aber bewusst sein, das man pro Tag ca 6h im bus sitzt!
