Breathtaking!
Jenny_L, Mar 2024
My son is studying abroad in Athens for the semester. When I visited in March, I wanted to see as much of Greece as possible in the 5 days I had - so I booked a few tours through Viator. Our day with Anthony and Nathan with CrispyTours to Meteora was truly incredible. If you're wondering, it is well worth the drive to see the amazing monestaries in the clouds in Meteora. Breathtaking and incredible. An added bonus was the stop at Thermopylae where we learned about one of the most important battlefields in world history. We also enjoyed a traditional Greek lunch on the way home - and great conversation with our guides. A big adventure - and a great day!

Amazing trip to monasteries!
Omayra_L, Feb 2024
This trip is about a 4 hour drive to Meteora but Giorgos was an excellent driver. We stopped at the halfway point to stretch. This stop is great for coffee and a pastry. The monasteries and the views are amazing!! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking to the each monastery. The restaurant we had lunch was excellent and had a great view too. Would highly recommend this experience!!

Meteora was a highlight of our time in Greece
Judith, Oct 2023
Our trip to Meteora was a highlight of our trip to Greece and the Dalmatian Coast. We could hardly believe our eyes and wondered how anyone could have built these pinnacle-top structures so long ago. George was just wonderful - the perfect guide. He was punctual and, equally important, arrived with warm, savory treats. He has a friendly personality and is very knowledgeable, explaining what we were seeing along our route through the countryside, as well as in Meteora. We talked with him about a broad range of subjects regarding Greece. He was very professional and very open to questions of all kinds. By the end, we felt we had really had an interesting, personal encounter with a terrific representative of his country. Before returning to Athens, he brought us to a wonderful restaurant in Kalabaka - Meteora Restaurant Gkertsou Family. The food was delicious, the service warm and attentive, and the atmosphere was that of a big, wonderful old tavern. When he dropped us off at our hotel at the end of the day, he gave us a small bottle of local olive oil. The trip was a full day and we were tired by the end, but what a great day we had. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a really special experience in Greece. George is 5 star.

Wonderful day visiting Meteora from Athens
JackieSmith, Oct 2023
How our tour guide/driver made the trip from Athens to Meteora so personable. In every way he thought about our needs. From detours off the main highway to show us the querks of country Greek life, to guiding us through amazing photo opportunities of the monestries and visits. Totally met my expectations plus more. Thanks Pedro

Spectacular and worth every cent
Marina_H, Oct 2023
We had a wonderful day! The drive was long but made very pleasant with our friendly, considerate and safe driver and tour guide Harry. Meteora was spectacular and well worth the visit and worth every cent of the tour price. Thank-you to the company and especially Harry.

A fantastic day!
Lisa_K, Sep 2023
We were picked up by the wonderful Harry for our day trip to Meteora. We stopped on the way 2 hrs in at Thermopylae to see the memorial to Leonidas of ‘The 300’. Another 2hrs to our first monastery. No shorts for men and only a skirt or long dress for women. Shoulders to be covered. You will be provided with a sarong upon entry if not suitably dressed. Harry stopped at several points along the way between the monastery visits to allow us to take photos. The churches within each monastery anre absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. I witnessed many devoted visitors who were overwhelmed at being there. We stopped afterwords for lunch which was superb. We then drove the four hours home back to Athens. What an amazing experience we had. Such a unique experience and well worth the hours driving. Harry was a wonderful driver and host. I highly recommend this journey and feel blessed to have been able to visit these monasteries.

An Awe Inspiring experience
mark_s, Sep 2023
Breathtaking views and an almost spiritual experience. We watched many videos and reviews of Meteora and our high expectations were surpassed. In our view Meteora is at the same level as The Pantheon Acropolis and is a Must see!

Having a local driver was the best decision on this excursion
NormaJean_Z, Sep 2023
This was a long trip from Athens, so it was great having Melina share her local knowledge of Athens and the destination. She planned a thoughtful itinerary and added a few stops to break up the ride with historical points of interest. There is a lot to see - so having someone with experience maximized our visit. The day was capped off with finding a great local restaurant.

Fantastic Family Day Trip
Lewis_M, Aug 2023
My husband, daughter (age 7), and I book this day trip. We had a fantastic Senior Travel Advisor, George Hantzos, through Crisp Local Travel company. Highly recommend this day tour with tour guide, George Hantzos. Meteora is an amazing place to see. The trip did not seem long despite the 4 hours each way from Athens.
