Historic Xanthi & Nestos River

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $89 USD / Adult
Travel to the Nestos River Delta where you'll visit historic Xanthi, known for its stunning architecture and rich history. Hop aboard your coach for a scenic drive toward one of Greece's most significant watersheds. The Nestos River flows from the Rila Mountains of Bulgaria into the Aegean Sea near Thassos. Spanning over 500,000 acres, the watershed is home to diverse animal and avian communities. Admire this beautiful coastal plain and step outside the coach to snap some photos. Then, make your way to Xanthi, known as the "city of a thousand colors." The city bears the trace of the many cultures that have passed through due to the thriving tobacco trade. Stroll the old town with your guide, admiring architecture that dates back to the Ottoman Empire. After ambling the town's narrow cobblestoned streets, visit a local tavern where you'll enjoy traditional Greek mezes with wine—just like a local. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
