What people are saying about Lindos

The trip is well worth the money! It’s an enjoyable boat ride to lindos, quick and easy to find and board. Lindos itself is beautiful and had a great time. Once we arrived back to Rhodes port the gentlemen running the trip arranged for us to get a free transfer back to our hotel as they were going past our hotel anyway which saved us a taxi. Very kind of him so Thankyou to all staff. Only Criticism is boat left late so arrived to lindos 15 minutes late and this time was taken off our 4 hours. Nevertheless plenty time to see and do all just about! Definitely book if contemplating you will have a great time

A boat trip is a must do when visiting Rhodes as is a visit to Lindos. I combined the two and had a marvellous day out. The late start (11am) and just one hour boat trip meant we were in Lindos by noon. This Sunday trip gave 4hrs in Lindos so next time when in Rhodes I’ll join the Tues/Thursday trip to experience the swim stop too (3hrs in Lindos when combined with a swim stop). The boat is fast, clean & comfortable (great individual seats, not plastic benches & patio chairs as on most boats). The crew friendly and helpful. Lindos is a gem. Overall, super day out, highly recommended.

What a super trip to Lindos! The boat left punctually at 11am and by 12 noon we were pulling into Lindos bay under the gaze of the ancient Acropolis. I chose this Sunday trip with 4hrs in Lindos as the swim stop offered on their Tues/Thursday trips didn’t interest me, I preferred a longer time in Lindos and no other boat offers the full 4hrs. Lindos is amazing, everyone visiting Rhodes should visit Lindos! The boat trip was a great way of getting to Lindos, the boat was clean, fast & comfortable. The staff & crew polite & kind. I will do their Symi trip next time.

A lovely leisurely sail to Lindos with a swim on the way there and one on the way back. Great fun. Have done this trip twice now and would do again. There was a bit of a queue at the top to go in the ruins but it moved quite quickly.

I booked for the first time and was a bit skeptical, but everything went great. The crew is very nice and helpful.
