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.
