If you are looking for an ancient ruin, a small cute village to drink some coffee and buy some souvenirs or a sandy and calm beach, than Lindos is definitely worth a visit for you. The driver was on time to pick you up from/near your hotel and the 1 hour ride doesn't seem long at all. Tip If you want to see the Acropolis, make sure to do it first. The other tour busses will arrive soon and the queue can get pretty long. Or just book an online ticket ;)

The driver was very kind, and helpful. The butterfly valley was amazing, Filermos Hill wasn't too big, but there is a wonderful landscape and a very kind monastery. You have to climb stairs, but this beautiful view worth it. Even the lenght of the journey was perfect too.

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

Loved seven springs a lot. Much time is allotted to Lindos visiting, for me was too much, but that's only my opinion. A bit hard to find the bus on big parkings.

Very punctual pick up and much easier than getting the local bus - well worth the extra money and a lot less than a taxi!
