Private Tour from Kalamata to Diros Caves & Vilages of Mani
Join me on a full day private tour to Diros Caves in a luxurious air-conditioned vehicle, with free WiFi on board).
Diros Caves are situated at Diros bay, a few kilometres south of Aeropolis. Diros is considered to be one of the most beautiful sea caves all over the world because it possesses a sensational, colorful mineral decor of compelling column shaped stalactites and stalagmites.
This tour is ideal for travelers coming to Kalamata by cruise ships for few hours.
Our tour will begin from your hotel and in less than an hour, we will be at the first village of Manis' region, Kardamili.
However, in order to reach the Caves of Diros, we should cross over the gulf of Itilo, the most impressive highlight of the tour. The combination of colors, the wild beauty of the mountains and the turquoise waters of the bay create images that you will never forget!
Located at the top of the Mani, the entrance of Diros' Caves is a few meters above the sea level. When you enter the cave you walk down a stairway to an underground lake where there are boats waiting. You will be given a life-vest and then each boat gets a guide who uses poles to journey through the caverns and tunnels, which are eerily lit and adorned with stalactites and stalagmites.
Our exploration will make you hungry. As we return we can stop at Stoupa and dine at one of the amazing traditional cuisine restaurants in front of the sea.

Our day in Mani is forever imprinted on our minds. Aristoteleia is responsible for making the tour so perfect!!! Traveling through and stopping in the picturesque towns -- plus learning the history and customs of the area -- just fascinating!! My interest in Mani was piqued by reading Fermor's book "Mani"...and Aristoteleia researched the exact location of his home for a visit. She went above and beyond. Thank you, Aristoteleia.
