Sunset tour in Meteora
Those who have experienced the sunset Meteora tour describe it as “magical”, ideal for “photo-graph enthusiastics”, an “unforgettable” life experience for families and “top-notch organization” … we should admit that we can not agree more with all those comments.
During the Sunset tour in Meteora you will visit:
- The Monastery of St. Stephen
- The Byzantine church dedicated to Assumption of Virgin Mary, the most ancient monument of our region. In its walls your family can witness the 2,700 years of history!
- The renovated 1,000 years old Hermitages of Badova built inside caves
Do not forget to have your camera with you as during the Sunset Meteora tour the bus driver will make stops so that your family can take the most perfect sunset photos ever… we guarantee that your family and friends back home will be impressed! Let alone the children’s teachers and school mates!
All tour guides and bus drivers are super friendly, unbelievably knowledgeable about the history, traditions and culture of the region. They are all experts when it comes to avoiding all tourist traps since most of them are locally born and raised.
We can not think of a better way to challenge all senses!
