This is a lovely, fun way to enjoy an evening. With the wind in your hair, and thanks to very nice electric bikes, cycling about is no sweat. You see the main sights in and around Rhodes old town. The guides have a wealth of knowledge. There really is no better way to get to know Rhodes. The evening tour includes a cycle up to a viewing point to take in a beautiful sunset.

When you finally visit the wonderful island of Rhodes, one of the best activities that will remain unforgettable to you, is a cruise with Nemo Yellow Submarine. The cheerful, friendly crew have organised a fantastic tour of the island, with visits to the most amazing beaches and sceneries all while enjoying great music. Don't miss it !
