We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Manuela was very welcoming, paid attention to everyone, told us something about nature and Rhodes and answered questions. There was a beautiful beach and goats to see up close. The atmosphere at sunset was designed very nicely. We would do the tour again. Thank you Manuela!

Very interesting and informative island tour. We saw a lot of the island and got a lot of background information. Is definitely recommended. The tour was bilingual in German and English.

Very nice roundtrip, the guide (Karl-Heinz) was super knowledgable about the history of Rhodos, very interesting to learn so much about the history of the island

A round thing. It was both informative and entertaining. Even our children (10 and 6) were enthusiastic despite the duration of more than 8 hours.

lovely, you got to take this tour, beware the AC on the mini bus is not the best, but alright
