What people are saying about Rhodes Town

My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much! The tour guides and our driver were super friendly and everything was well organized. The picnic was delicious! The kayaking on the crystal clear water was amazing and this will be day we will always remember.

Great cruise with plenty of time at each swim stop. Delicious lunch, great portion size and includes added snacks late morning and afternoon before returning to the Marina.

We only had a few hours in Rhodes at the end of our honeymoon so this was an ideal way to see the city in a short period of time.

The tour guide showed up early at the meeting point to ensure we were all in the right place. Very professional and informative.

We had a BLAST !! Such a great time and SO pretty !!
