Professional Tour.
During our vacation in Kalamata 6 of us went on a tour of the Caves of Diros and the villages of Mani. The guide and driver was Aristoteleia who was excellent, good fun and very knowledgeable guide. We went to the cave then a walk around Areopoli and a nice lunch at Stoupa.

Pixida are highly recommended

NB - Good to see Aristoteleia again a week later doing a walking tour around old town Kalamata, which I now regret not going on.

Fantastic day!
Visited the Diros caves and villages of Mani on this trip from pixida yours.

It was a fantastic day! We were picked up in a comfortable Mercedes van, and driven through the villages of Mani on our way to the caves. Our hide Telia was highly informative throughout, telling us interesting stories. The caves were also a fantastic experience.

On the return to Kalamata, we stopped at numerous villages in Mani; Areopolis and Stoupa. Both were very scenic, and very interesting.

Would highly recommend the tour!

Fantastic unforgettable experience
Jul 2018 • Couples
The excursion to the Diros caves and the Mani peninsula was something really unforgettable. We highly appreciated Telia´s insightful and friendly approach. We were so excited by this experience that we booked three more excursions - to Sparta and Mystras, ancient Messene and Nestor´s Palace in Pylos. We enjoyed all trips very much – it made our stay in Kalamata something special.

Caves of Diros and Mani tour
An absolutely unforgettable experience through the caves and exploring the surrounding villages. Telia was a complete joy with her passion for the area shinning through. Her knowledge and expertise was exceptional and it was both wonderful and humorous learning about the history of the people of Mani. The caves were a amazing unique experience and the views of the water from outside the caves was simply stunning. The local cuisine we had for lunch in Stoupa was delicious and a fantastic recommendation from Telia. Overall it was an incredibly worthwhile and unforgettable tour that I cannot recommend enough!!!!!! Thank you Telia!!!! ❤❤❤

Fantastic and fun tours with Pixida Tours and Telia !
Jun 2018 • Couples
We did 2 tours with Telia. Day one to Diros caves and Mani, followed by Ancient Olympia on day two.

These 2 tours were the most fun we had in all of Greece. Telia's knowledge of the area is remarkable and her passion truly shines.

Timely pickup and drop off. Additional stops for photography. Telia is very accommodating.

This is the most fun you will have in the Peloponnese !!

Thanks for a fantastic time Telia !

Moreover when you write down that everything was beautiful and you had fun, is like someone is visiting your house and finds it also beautiful. So we immediately feel proud and more thankful. Thank you for everything Mr. Paul and my promise is....if you come back we will have even better time! friendly friendly regards

Cave and towns tour
We had an awesome day with Telia!! She was lovely and took us on a beautiful scenic drive which she was very knowledgeable about. The caves were magnificent and really well organised. Lunch at Stoupa on the drive back was another highlight, where the local food was delicious and the views were breathtaking. Overall, one of the best tours we’ve done with such a lovely & experienced tour guide & can not recommend enough!!!!

Tour was spectacular, and Telia is amazing
Mar 2018 • Family
Amazing tour of the Mani villages and Diors Caves. Telia was great, and provided a lot of very interesting history.

She provided history around the Spartans, and how the Mani villages came about. Telia’s explanation of the Mani villages, her funny stories about her family and the discovery of the Dior’s Caves was simply captivating. She peeked our interest and addressed every question with grace.

I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone planning a visit to Kalamata. We’re so grateful for our time with Telia, and I feel that I’ve formed a new friendship.
