6 h. tour (Private tour)

(transportation + guidance throughout + visit the Venetian castle + visit Agiassos village + visit of Barbagiannis Ouzo Distillery)

For those of you that have more time at their disposal and would like to see as much as possible of the landscape of this beautiful island, we can arrange for you a private tour through the most important sights of the island of Lesvos. Your tour will begin with a panoramic drive through an old aristocratic neighborhood of Mytilene that lies near the Venetian Castle and admire the fine architecture of the old mansions. Then you will visit the Venetian castle where you will be able to explore and hear a lot about its history.

Once you leave the castle you will then continue with a drive to the village of Agiassos which is situated on the pine and olive covered slopes of mount Olympus. After a short stop in the village, you will continue your drive to Plomari.

Plomari has been the center of cultural and economic activity on the island for many decades, famous for its distilleries that produce what many consider to be the best ouzo in Greece. Agios Isidoros is a nearby beach and there you will visit the Barbagiannis Distillery, complete with a tour of the museum and the production plant. You will learn the methods of creating genuine ouzo and how the aspects of the original method are still present in modern distillery. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to taste the Barbagiannis ouzo, reputed to be the best in the world.

Return to Mytilene port and back to your cruise ship.

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Julie
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
Tony
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
