What people are saying about Faliraki

Overall the tour was great, our guide Maria was very knowledgeable about everything regarding the island and we did not have any problems hearing or understanding her. Yanis, our driver was very adept driving us those unimaginable narrow streets of Rhodes and we felt that we were in good hands. As for money this tour was well worth it's price.

We had an amazing tour with Sophia Sea Cruises! The staff was very courteous and the boat wasn't overly crowded like we've seen with other operators before. Sufficient bathing time was offered at the bays and even snorkeling equipment was provided. We would do this tour again and again and are happy to recommend it.

Great experience, visited beautiful caves. Clear explanation of the places and plenty of time for swimming and snorkeling. There is unlimited food and drink! My ring unfortunately lost in the bay the wonderful instructor who showed it up for me. Well worth the money!!! A must have for the holidays

Very nice outing on the boat. It doesn't go too fast which is nice. The bays are really beautiful and the captain fed the fish which allowed us to see them very closely. I recommend!

The 3 hour drive is great! Great staff, delicious fruit salad, free drinks and mega swimming stops. Would recommend bringing your own diving goggles and snorkel.
