This tour is a definite must for anyone visiting Spetses for the first time! The tour is around the house of Bouboulina and provides very personal insights into her life and legacy. Our entire family (with children aged 9 and 11) loved it!

There are few museums as personal as this - the soul of the island, inextricably tied to the latter's history - and such a gorgeous setting!

The place is amazing and is totally worth a visit. The history of the place is well explained by two museum guides driving your mind almost 200 years back of the Greek War of Independence. Takes about 30-45 minutes and museum is family friendly.
