The climbing tour was a very nice experience. We discussed beforehand what difficulty we wanted to climb and our expectations were met. The guide is very professional and we were even picked up directly from the hotel.

I had a great day with Iraklis. We did Pillar of Dreams and he definitely knew the route. I felt safe the entire time and would climb with Iraklis again if I’m ever fortunate enough to make it back in the area. Meteora is amazing and well worth the trip
