Mastic Mystique
the mastic harvest tour

The meeting point for this tour is the central square of the medieval mastic-village of Mesta.

We start our walk in the town and observe the defensive architecture. We reach the mastic grove located just outside of Mesta where we experience all the steps in the harvest.

After the hands-on demonstration we enjoy a pic-nic (snack) with local products before we head back to Mesta to finish the tour.

The duration of the tour is 2 to 3 hours.

The total walking distance is about 2 kilometers.

What they say about us
What an unforgettable day of walking, talking and learning of the mastic production. I would certainly recommend the experience to anyone on the island. I am looking forward to recounting the day for my friends.
