  • When and how will I receive the train tickets?
    We will send you the train tickets by email a few weeks before the tour. Keep in mind that you should check your spam folder of your email address often, given that the tickets will be a PDF file attached to the email.

    Of course! There is a cafeteria on the train where you can get water, coffee and snacks.

    First-class seats are quieter and more comfortable. They are arranged in 6-seat rooms, which affords you more privace and easy access to the cafeteria, given that the latter is usually in the next coach.
  • If I am staying in Trikala, can you pick me up from there?
    Since the city of Trikala is 21 kilometers from the city of Kalambaka, it is not possible to pick you up from there. In this case, we can contact you with some suggestions as to how you can get to Kalampaka in order for you to join the tour.
