What people are saying about Rhodes Town

I don’t usually write reviews about things but this boat tour is a must if you are visiting Rhodes! The destinations (the 3 beaches) were fantastic, the boat was nice, the staff were nice and the food was amazing. The staff were constantly topping up your wine, and water/beer was available whenever you wanted. Would definitely go again if I came back to Rhodes! I was struggling to choose between multiple boat tours but I’m so happy that I chose this one!

Lovely experience! We absolutely liked, that you get a space just for you and that there are three swimming and snorkling stops for one hour each! This lets you fuel some sun on the boat and refresh yourself in the water! We recommend being early and to reserve a spot in the front row of the boat (three seats available)

Everything very well organized and uncomplicated. Snorkeling equipment and pool noodles available. 1 hour stay in the bays for snorkeling or swimming. It has enough drinks. Lunch was very good. Large portion including fruit. Top price/performance ratio!

Hotel pick-up on time and punctual return. Nice visit to Lindos in complete freedom.

It was really cool! People, weather, food, drinks and music - all of it was amazing
