What people are saying about Faliraki

We booked the tour for two and had the fun of our lives! First we were on a hiking tour on the third highest mountain in Rhodes. Despite the very high temperatures, Addie and Tsampikos took very good care of us and there was plenty of water for everyone. We were also told a little about the Italian ruins and the flora / fauna in the area. The highlight of the day was the sunset high up with a wonderful view of the coast and Turkey (honeydew melon included!). The kayak tour started on the second day. After a warm-up and briefing, we started straight away. There was also plenty to see here, in addition to Anthony Quinn Bay and the crystal clear water. We were shown the underwater life on a subsequent snorkeling tour. Before the return trip we were provided with Greek food by Maria, Tsampikos and George. All in one, an unforgettable experience that will be remembered forever!

Best trip and definitely worth a recommendation! It was tough but incredibly incredibly beautiful and some mega cute guides. Excellent views and a nice check on the list.

Wonderful experience with very warm and professional guides. Unique!
