Two Day Tour Originating in Kalamata

There are certain attractions in the Southern Peloponnese that no visitor should miss.

Laconia is an unspoiled patchwork of staggering landscapes, soaring mountains and photogenic villages. Many call it the mythical heart of Greece.

The tour visits some of the well known- and also several well hidden- attractions of the region and combines scenic drives and walks, cultural experiences, leisurely breaks, and memorable meals.


The itinerary has been thoroughly planned in order to accommodate all interests and expectations. However, the final schedule will depend on the guest's preferences and will be determined during our correspondence before and after the time of booking.
As one would expect from any trip that takes in Monemvasia and the highlights of Laconia, the tour visits all the well-known attractions in, and around, Monemvasia, Sparti and Mystra. What makes this tour special, however, are the less-known sites, that are not as accessible or easy to find, and the walks which require local knowledge. The itinerary has been planned with an overnight stop in Monemvasia, but may change in order to allow for any necessary revision.
Further information regarding the tour's itinerary will be shared upon request.

What’s Included

Other: Tour price includes my services as your guide (also, trip planner, and driver). The tour fee includes consultation, which will not only save you money, but, above all, allows you to stay in some wonderful places and have unforgettable meals. High standard, air-conditioned, vehicle, and all fuel expenses are included.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

10 EUR - Entrance fees to archaeological sites and museums of your choice

What’s Extra

Other: Accommodations (1 night). The reason this is not included is to allow for personal preferences and variables that make customizing possible. I make the arrangements for your preffered type of accommodations (I have many great recommendations in all price ranges). A price quote for the the "extra inclusions" is made available within 48 hours after a request is made. Prices start as low as 60 EUR per night, and depend on seasonality, preferred type of accommodations, and whether rooms are for single, double or triple use. This cost is paid directly to your hotel during the tour, not at the time of booking.

A Recent Review of this tour

Yorgos was a spectacular guide on our 2 day tour of the southern Pelopponese peninsula. He took us to Kardamili, Sparta, Monemvasia, Githio , Sparti, Mystras, Aeropoli and others. Delightful tourguide. Very informative of history, foods, olive tree farming, society, current issues. It's a trip we'll always treasure. Well worth the price. Great memories.
