The tour and the guides were fantastic! Due to COvID, 3 of us in the tour but the guides kept the same energy! The train ride is way to long and the train stops everywhere in between! If you have alternate travel to get there, take it!
A big day but definitely worth it. The second biggest tourist attraction in Greece is a must see. This trip is extremely well organised, the guides are great, and the right amount of time is spent at each monastery/nunnery. Definitely beats spending a night in Kalabaka if you don't need to, even though it is a 16 hour day. Highly recommended.
