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.

Loved everything about this trip except the hotel breakfast. The guide was so knowledgeable, the bus was comfortable and we saw so much of Greece. Meteora was worth spending the extra day for - 100% recommend!

I would suggest doing this tour to see the amazing rock formations in Meteora and learn about the rich history of Delphi. Our tour guides Atanasio and Euli were very knowledgeable! I highly recommend this tour!

I booked all my tours with Key Tours and I enjoyed all of them but I will note for this tour there must be improvements made as so many who participated were not fully satisfied including me. We were picked up at hotel and drove to Delphi as our first stop. The place is incredible. We had very limited time to explore on our own (30 minutes is not enough time for this huge important site). Guided duration was 1 hour. On this tour we were joined later in the afternoon by another group which was on a 5 and 3 day tour. I had already met few of the people on an earlier tour I had taken so we compared notes. The 3 and 5 day group had as their guide Christina which they loved dearly. I met Christina but did not hear tour from her. The other group had from beginning Christina for a few days and when meeting up with my group there was a change of guides for the Meteora area which none liked: His name was Nassos. This guide spoke very fast and no one could understand him from the group. All were very disappointed in the Meteora guided tour, they all wanted dear Christina back. Nassos spend too much time talking and then had to translate in Italian for 3 people. We were a group of over 40 English speakers and only 3 Italian speakers who did understand English as I spoken to them. I do not think it is a wise decision to have a bilingual tour for 3 people when majority in group are English speakers, this was very destructive and disruptive for the entire English speaking group. After fast pace at this main attraction of Delphi we were taken for lunch at a local village which we had to pay (as lunch was not included in this package). I really enjoyed the food and time to relax. After lunch we made a photo stop at the King Leonidas Monument at the battle site of Thermopile. We then drove to village of Kalambaka and settled to our hotel which had a pool and free buffet and breakfast. I really enjoyed this village. I strolled through village in the evening and purchased some souvenirs. In the morning we were picked up at our 2 hotels then set off on our way to see 2 of the monasteries. We had plenty of time at monasteries and I really enjoyed the visit, but not the fast guided bilingual tour, we all lost interest. We stopped at local souvenir shop then we stopped for lunch (not included in package). Lunch was good and affordable. I recommend this tour highly but there are needed modifications that must be made so customers are not left with a sour taste in their mouth after having a really great guide (Christina); from inception of tour GREAT, then to be left disappointed by a another tour guide (Nassos) that was not well received
