What people are saying about Rhodes

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 !

Fantastic!! We had an incredible time with our guide Theodore on this tour! He was knowledgeable, personable, funny and showed us areas I know we would have missed if we ventured out on our own. Safety first was his motto! Highly recommend this experience and guide. Thank you Theo and Rodos Tour Company! Alex & Caprice

The audio was great - very detailed and brought the tour to life, far more than if we’d just looked round ourselves. Easy to download and use - we were really impressed and well worth the spend.

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.

It was a great experience, the people were absolutely lovely too. Would definitely recommend !
