Soak up the peace and tranquility on both the East and West coasts of the Island, in beautiful spots such as is Kritinia Castle, a castle from the 16th Century situated on a hill about 131 meters above the village of Kritinia. It offers a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, the island of Chalki, and some other deserted islands. Afterwards, you will enjoy a wine, olive oil, and local products tasting in Embonas village.

Your next stop will be in Fountoukli, at the Byzantine church of Agios Nikolaos, which was built in the 14th Century. For a lunch break, you will stop at a traditional restaurant.

gladly again

we had a wonderful day. Since we had a holiday away from the hotel chains, we were picked up at a separate point (great service), we did the tour shortly after announcement of the Thomas Cook bankruptcy and had some of the affected. The guide has for this reason the tour (although only in English was indicated), also in German, we have learned a lot and laughed a lot. It was an entertaining thoroughly successful day we do not want to miss. Thanks again to the guide whose name I unfortunately forgot.

We really enjoyed this tour. You get a good overview of the island and visit a variety of sights that may not get as much attention and are not as crowded. From older to more recent history, from olive oil and wine tasting to panorama to the beach, everything is included - all brought together by Guide Michael, who shows you his "island" warmly and humorously and has a good anecdote about everything;)

Interesting information from guide and very enjoyable day in general

We are very satisfied with the trip, everything was arranged perfectly and the guide told us a lot about the highlights, but also about customs in Rhodes and other peripheral matters. The bus was nice with air conditioning. The places we have been allowed to visit showed us a different side of Rhodes because we went inland instead of just staying at the coast. All in all: a great day!
