This was an outstanding experience and was one of my highlights of the whole trip. It’s a unique way to see Rhodes in a more authentic way and seeing all the iconic locations that makes Rhodes so unique and the history behind Rhodes truly a great experience. All the guides that I had for this trip were all very nice and made kayaking really easy and comfortable for a beginner like. Couldn’t have done it with our them. Overall highly recommended doing this activity for people who come and visit Rhodes who want a nice calming experience as they go around a section of Rhodes coast. Truly a one of a kind experience

Wonderful experience - I can’t say enough about Maria & her partner. They ensured that our kayaks were adjusted appropriately for us, made sure we wore our PFD’s properly! Gave us some breaks at regular intervals (which I think we all appreciated). During the breaks we were given some interesting info about Rhodes, like history etc…. We then went snorkeling when we arrived at our destination. Last, but not least, we had a nice, Greek picnic

The kayaking was great and good to do for beginners. The snorkelling spot was very nice and the guides were very nice. We had a great day. The only negative thing i have to say wae that on the way to the swimming spot you stop at multiple spots and can rest a little bit while on the way back you don’t stop anywhere which made it a little tiring. But it was still fun regardless.

Super équipe, très beaux paysages et un encadrement parfait pour une première expérience de kayak. Les accompagnants étaient jeunes et proposaient vraiment une ambiance de détente et d’amusement!

Really good activity and the 2 staff members were so accommodating and nice. We got to spend time seeing things and the pictures at the end were a massive bonus
