Our driver will meet you early morning at your Athens accommodation and head out of the city towards Northern Greece. After a stop to one of the most famous battlefields in history, Thermopylae, we make our way to Meteora. We arrive at Meteora where you will visit 2 of the monasteries and have a break for lunch. In the late afternoon you will get a glimpse of the monasteries at sunset. Overnight at a hotel with rooms that overlook the rocks.
After breakfast, we visit one more monastery before we make our way to the stunning village of Metsovo in Pindos’ mountains. Free time to walk and why not visit the Averoff winery. Then we head to the capital of Ipirus, Ioannina, where you can visit the castle and the rest sights of the Ottoman era. Lunch stop at a tavern with local specialties and free time to walk around the famous Lake. Overnight at a hotel overlooking the Lake.
After breakfast, we will make our way to the beautiful villages of Zagoria with their stunning nature and picturesque stone bridges. We will explore as many villages as possible and we will also take you the viewpoint of the world’s “deepest relative to its width” gorge, Vikos. Overnight in one of the villages (Megalo Papigko or Aristi).
In the morning those who are adventurous, can either hike around the gorge (recommended only for experienced hikers) or go rafting across Voidomatis river (one of the coldest in Europe). Alternatively, if you are doing the tour in the summer/spring we can take you to the “ancient river of pain” , Acheron , where you can swim, go canoeing- kayaking or even horseback riding. If you are taking a sailboat from Lefkada or Preveza, we can drop you off there or we can head back to Athens with a stop at Nafpaktos to enjoy the view from the Castle and have a lunch break. We arrive back to Athens by early evening after passing to Peloponesse region via Rio/Antirio bridge and a short stop at Corinth Canal.

We all very much enjoyed our tour around Athens. Our tour guide was well spoken, pleasant & gave us quite a bit of knowledge about Athens. We highly recommend your company.
My husband Howard and I would like to thank you very much for arranging our tour of Athens last week. We felt that we saw more of Athens in one day than many people are able to see on their own in a week.
“Dear George, Thank you for an unforgettable day of touring yesterday. Marcia and I feel fortunate to have met you. We are grateful for your splendid display of Greek φιλοξενία. With best wishes!”
We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip with you last week. You helped to make our 25th anniversary trip to Greece something that we will never forget. Thanks so much for the pastries and peaches you gave us.
Υour service was just what we needed. We were all jet lagged and couldn’t think, so George did our thinking for us. Lots of good stories and Cape Sounion was beautiful.
George, Just wanted to let you know what a GREAT time we had with your son Dennis when we were in Athens 2 weeks ago from our NCL Jade cruise…he was polite, informative, gracious, attentive. We certainly enjoyed our all too brief visit, thanks to his help!
We are hoping to be back in Athens early next year and will defiantly use your company for our travel and touring needs. Thank you again for the first class service.
I wanted to write to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour of Athens with your son Billy. I will forward your information to our travel agent for her information and future clients.
Makis kept the trip enjoyable and was a pleasure to have as our guide. The 4 days we spent with in the Greek countryside were an excellent time in many aspects and will live as a fond memories for us.
George's Taxi is all about privacy!
