Perama is a few km out of Ioannina and easy to reach by car. It's a pleasant enough little village and finding the cave entrance is easy. Entrance is €7 p.p. You'll need to be fit enough to tackle about 650 steps on the 1.6km...More

Excellent tour. Stunning cave. Great information. Tour guide was fab. Definitely recommend. Don't be put off by the negative comments - the tour does not warrant them! Strictly no photography though so leave the camera behind. There's an app - perama caves.

The guided tour started at 11am, there was little to do while waiting, all the shops were closed. No place for a coffee nearby was open. The caves were interesting. The guide kept forbidding photography even without flash. Eventually I was allowed as all the...More
