Following my very enjoyable trip to Lindos with this company I decided to also visit Symi with them. What a great day out. We were allowed to board 30 mins prior to departure and I chose an upper deck seat with fabulous views. The boat left punctually at 11:00 and seemed full. The journey to Symi was smooth & fast, at just gone 12 we were moored up in the heart of the town of Symi. The boat journey was cool so the heat of Symi hit me immediately. The action seems to be around the harbour front which is bustling with life. Lunch was a crisp glass of Greek white wine & some Symi shrimp. Three hours is quite ample time to investigate this charming outpost of the Aegean, and to buy some natural sponges & local herbs! The swim stop on the return journey, at St George’s bay, was out of this world; pristine, azure waters & the scenery of this bay is breathtaking. The boat was back in Rhodes at 17:00, as promised. The crew, friendly & polite; thank you for such a memorable day out!

I booked this trip after reading the reviews and I have to say I agree with how fantastic this trip was! I have done many excursions all over the world but this one is by far the best! Everything from the atmosphere, service, food, drink and the beautiful locations you visit this trip is an absolute MUST for anyone visiting Rhodes, I truly couldn’t recommend highly enough we had such a fantastic day and created some wonderful memories. My only suggestions would be to take a waterproof camera/phone case we were gutted we didn’t think of this and if more of a selection of soft drinks could be included that would be great but with that being said there was unlimited wine, beer, water and juice so there was plenty!!

I have not done this before but it was fairly easy. As a matter of fact it was great fun. It's the best way to see the city. Great guide with good information and alot better than walking.

It was a unique experience. The reservation and boarding went very well. At a good hour you are already on Symi. Beautiful island. Friendly staff.

Very nice ship with super friendly staff and perfect spots for snorkeling.
