Rhodes: Filerimos, Butterfly Valley & Ancient Kamiros Tour

1. Rhodes: Filerimos, Butterfly Valley & Ancient Kamiros Tour

Discover the major landmarks on the gorgeous island of Rhodes as you follow your expert guide on an insightful excursion. Visit Mount Filerimos with its medieval monastery, the colorful butterfly valley, and the ancient city of Kamiros, which was destroyed by an earthquake. Ride an air-conditioned bus to your first stop, Mount Filerimos. Walk by the representation of the Stations of the Cross and admire the breathtaking panoramic view. Visit the medieval monastery built in the early 14th century and hear the amazing story of Our Lady of Filerimos. After a short picturesque drive, arrive at the iconic butterfly valley, surrounded by dense vegetation and tall trees. Enjoy a walk down the shaded path and reach the gorgeous opening, where you'll find the marvelous Panaxia Quadripunctaria or Jersey Tiger butterfly. Your next stop is Kamiros, an ancient Doric city founded in the 6th century. See the acropolis and temples of this tragic site that was destroyed by an earthquake in 142 AD. Continue your drive through the mountains and visit the quaint village of Embona. Stop at a traditional mountain home to meet a family of wine producers. Taste some of their wine and local spirits, as well as honey and olive oil. Explore the village on your own and purchase lunch at a local restaurant if you're feeling hungry.

Excellent tip, very well organized! Big thank you to the nice driver and to the amazing tour guide, Marianna. She is passionate about her job and she gave us so many information about Rhodes that I still couldn't process how amazing the trip was. I loved Butterfly Valley the most, it's breathtaking and could be worth more than 1.15 hr stop there but it's just my personal opinion. :) The lunch was also nice, huge portion with free white and red wine plus water. I'd definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is interested to see some local places and hear about the island's history.

We enjoyed this trip more than we expected! Maria was a great guide who gave interesting information and the stops on the tour were all great. We could have done without the wine-tasting as it’s clearly just a sales pitch and too quick and rushed to be helpful if you really were interested in buying wine - but it’s not a deal breaker! As well as visiting all the different sites, we were really pleased just to see more of the island, even if just through the coach window.

wonderful trip, with a splendid guide. A little short on time on each place, but to be able to see all the places it was necessary. Would definitely recommend this trip to others.

Well organised and very informative guide (Maria). Busy schedule. Have to be reasonably fit - each stop lots steps up… lunch not till 2.30… take snacks. But we’ll worth doing.

Fabulous tour, lots to see and do! Very good way to get around the island without the hassle! Lovely tour guide and excellent bus driver!
