Overview

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

Great day of touring and learning about the region!

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

Sparta was definitely a place to check off the bucket list, but not much to see. Mystras was also great and there was much more to see, with an extensive stronghold extending halfway up a mountain next to Sparta. It was fun, not to mention great exercise to climb the mountain paths to get to the top of the citadel. A guide would have helped with both places to help appreciate more about both Sparta and Mystras, but our driver Vasilis was a great resource for much information. For lunch he took us into modern Sparta for Gyros, which were excellent, and then to the Leonidas monument, and to the 300 gift shop, and finally the olive oil museum. The olive oil museum is interesting and only takes a half hour to appreciate. We missed the Sparta museum since it closes early and we had all the above activities scheduled first. The driver told us there isnt anything to see there. Try to include these sites in a multiday tour if possible to avoid some of the extra commutes from Athens.

We booked this trip on a whim and it ended up being the highlight of our Greece vacation. Our tour guide, Visalis, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He made us feel comfortable during the 10 hour trip. I'd highly recommend taking this tour if you're in Athens!
