Private local tour of Mystras

The castle town of Mystras is a Byzantine monument that seats on the slopes of the steep mountain, on a very impressive way. It was established on the 13th century.

The steps of the visitors echo loudly in the magical silence of the castle. The city was divided in 3 sections, surrounded by big stone fortifying walls, having still today 2 gates, one on the top of the castle town and one at the end of it in the lower part.

Enjoy a 2 hour guided tour with a licensed tour guide being prepared for an extended walk on a steep path made of stone with several ramps and steps along the way.

All around you, you will keep seeing ruins of houses and churches of the times of glory of Mystras, as well as several of the still standing or under restoration churches as well as the very impressive complex of the palaces.

Agia Sophia, Agios Nikolaos, Agios Dimitrios, Pantanassa, Agioi Theodoroi are just a few of the several churches that still stand and you can choose to visit and allow your guide to tell you more about their architecture and the wonderful frescoes that have survived in most of them, travelling you back in time.

At the end of your tour you can spend more time walking around and taking pictures, or you can also visit the small museum which is housed in the building next to the Metropolis church of Agios Dimitrios.

Your tour guide can meet you at the lower part, where you can park your car, drive you to the top and start your tour, avoiding hiking up and getting to see the whole of the archaeological site from the top to the bottom.

    I booked a private guide Tour for Mystras - Niki responded even on a Sunday and I wanted the Tour for Tuesday! So everything went really fast!
    The Tour was perfect! Very interesting! We learnt a lot and we didn't even notice the Time nor the many steps we took down Mystras. The english was perfect - we totally recommend Niki Tours und our knowledgeable guide Athanasia! She was great! Thank you very much! Now we never ever want to visit such an important place without a guide!

    I booked two private tours from Olympic Day Tours. Niki was very professional to work with and she responded promptly to my emails.The first tour was for Mystras for 5 adults and 1 child. The guide, George, was very passionate and knowledgeable about the site. He had lots of specific knowledge about the frescoes and mosaics. The second tour was for Olympia (from Costa Navarino) for three adults and 1 child. Our guide, Ioanna, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Even my 5-year-old was interested in her explanations! The driver was good too.

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.
