Once known as the wonder of Morea, the ancient city of Mystras is an impeccably-preserved Byzantine city built into a towering mountain. It can be difficult to make your own way to Mystras; this private tour takes that difficulty out of the equation. Explore the city described by the UNESCO World Heritage List as a splendid complex of palaces then drive to historic Sparta, where you’ll visit an ancient citadel and the statue of King Leonidas.
  • No need to rush: explore Mystras and Sparta at your own pace on this private tour
  • Visit the Corinth Canal and, if you’re feeling adventurous, bungee-jump into the canal!
  • Enjoy an authentic mediterranean lunch at quaint local taverna
  • Learn about the history of the Spartan city-state at the Archeological Museum of Sparta

Great day of touring and learning about the region!
, Jun 2019
We had a wonderful tour of Mystras and Ancient Sparta. Our tour guides, George and Jimmy, were very professional and accommodating. George was a great driver and went out of his way to make us comfortable and show us the sights. He is very knowledgeable about the area and he spoke perfect English! We went to a very good restaurant for lunch and then headed back to Athens. The car ride was 2.5 hours each way, but it went fast and the scenery was beautiful.

Thank you for sharing your feedback for your private tour from Sparta & Mystras. Our driver George as the rest of our team of Olive Sea Travel works hard to provide you with high quality of services. He is willing to share with you his deep historical and religious knowledge of Ancient Greece in Sparta and Byzantine Castle City of Mystras. We try to offer you a cultural, religious and relaxing private tour for you. Safety and comfort are two of the major considerations of driving. Due to this, we choose only, Mercedes Mini Van. We hope to see you again! Best regards, Eleftheria Nikoloudaki
Okay tour

This tour was okay but extremely expensive for what we received. Our driver was good and had good knowledge and it was not his fault that the tour did not meet our expectations, however this tour should not be conducted when a number of the sites were closed. The ancient site at Sparta was closed so should not be. A Sparta tour. At Mystras the palace and Museum was closed. For almost $700 Australian dollars I was left disappointed. Basically we did not see much.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are really sorry to hear this. Although we would like to inform you that the sites of Sparta were closed with no official warning. The archeological sights were decided arbitrarily to close on Tuesdays, despite the fact that their Official sites on the internet and the information guaranteed that they were open for visiting every day apart from Mondays. Based on this information we scheduled the private tour to Sparta & Mystras on a Tuesday. As for the palace of Mystras that was never open to the public. It is under restoration for many years. However, of course, you visit the churches and the Museum that are open to the public. Consequently, we believe that the review concerns the Archeological sites and the ministry of culture for not being punctual, not our Travel Agency. We would gladly offer you our services again. We reassure you that we will cover all your needs. Kind regards, Eleftheria Nikoloudaki
