Gorgeous views, excellent host!
Nov 2021
My friends and I initially booked a trip to Meteora via train but decided to do a private car instead and it was the right decision! It was a wet and cold day and having the comfort of a car waiting for us at the end of each monastery visit was totally worth the cost. Ioannis, our driver, was great! He picked us up at our hotel with hot croissants and was so friendly, informative, and accommodating. We visited three monasteries and then per his recommendation, had lunch at a fabulous restaurant with gorgeous views. It was a long day but Ioannis made sure our travels were safe and pleasant. We plan to come back to Meteora (hopefully when the weather is better) and will definitely book Ioannis again!

Incredible tour with breathtaking views
Absolutely breathtaking adventure to Meteora. John (Ionnas) made us feel very comfortable and safe there and back, and his recommendations were spot on.

Amazing, must do experience!
Nov 2021 • Couples
This is a once in a lifetime, magical experience, and worth every penny and minute of a long day. We visited three of the monasteries, starting with the one which is deemed the most trickiest to access. You do need sensible footwear, ideally something with grip as the stone could be quite slippery otherwise.
Despite wearing trousers, women are still asked to wear a skirt (sarong will do) for the oldest monastery. There is a small entrance fee to visit each monastery, €3 per person, and it’s worth it. The views are amazing, and unrivalled, it really is worth the whole day to experience it. Our driver was amazing; when he picked us up he had already got us coffee and cheese pies (like a small pasty filled with soft cheese, a Greek delicacy) and bottled water. Throughout the journey, he was pointing out places of interest and had excellent English, and incredible knowledge. We stopped along the way to Meteora at a small museum and historical place of interest, which was good to break up the journey and be able to use facilities etc.
Our driver was attentive, and parked close to where we needed to be, gave us instructions of where we had to go, and where he would be once we had finished visiting each monastery.
After visiting Meteora, a lunch stop is planned at a local taverna with amazing panoramic views - we declined this and elected to stop in town just for a coffee instead, and this was no problem for our driver.
It is a long day, and initially this could seem as though it’s an expensive trip, but it really is a never-to-be-forgotten experience.

Dream like experience...
Oct 2021
OMG this place was amazing. Our driver was excellent and we would book here again. He was extremely friendly and fun. We stopped by the 300 battle and that was amazing. My history isn't that great and didn't realize this happened in Greece. The lunch stop was amazing. Overall I would book this again.

Μετεωρα : the drive up to the north of Greece is beautiful. Our driver Ioannis was very accommodating, knowledgeable and kind. The monasteries are a unique attraction! You can visit up to 3 monasteries and gaze the great views! The lunch was also superb! I totally recommend Crispy Local for this trip!

Unforgettable day trip from Athens!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Yannis was our driver guide for our day trip. We first started our ride with cheese bites and espresso placed in the middle of our seat divider - how thoughtful is that. We also stopped by Thermopylae, the battle site of the famous 300 on the way up. We enjoyed chatting with Yannis during our journey and he took care of us really well. It rained at the first monastery and he immediately whipped out brand new rain coats for us to use. Super! My husband and I are in pretty good shape so we actually got to see 4-5 monasteries, which was great. I really can't begin to express how beautiful Meteora is.

This tour is more expensive than the train one, but I truly appreciated the private service (esp with covid) and not feeling rushed. Like other reviews have mentioned, this isn't your detailed audio guide kind of tour, and we personally had no issues with that. We still learned a lot. We beat some crowds by arriving earlier in the day by leaving Athens around 7am.

After we visited the monasteries, we stopped by for lunch at a mountainside restaurant in Kastraki - if you go, do try the dry aged steppe cow steak with appetizers. They even gave us free bottargas, dessert and a homemade liquor (by Monika). You could tell Crispy Local did their research well to partner with the best. We were so jetlagged on the way back that we slept for most of it, and practically woke up in Athens. This was one of the best days of our trip to Greece and I'm glad we picked this company. Thanks Yannis for your hospitality and taking such great care of us!

Fun day trip to Meteora!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Ioannis was wonderful! Meteora is absolutely spectacular and having a personal driver assist in getting us around was exactly what we needed. We are pretty independent travelers so we appreciated the ability to roam freely instead of having to follow a guided tour. Please be aware this is not a guided tour, it’s more of a private transfer by a kind, knowledgeable driver. Definitely recommend!

Amazing, Unforgettable Experience
Aug 2021 • Family
I had such an amazing experience! Not only was the sight breathtaking, the monastery and surrounding area more breathtaking than critics describe, but the people were absolutely wonderful. This includes not only the people who we encountered throughout our tour but the tour guides themselves. They provided such an in-depth experience with all of information they shared about greek culture, religion, and cuisine. I will definitely recommend this tour to all friends and family and hope to one day return myself!
