    1. From Rhodes City: Boat Day Trip to Lindos

    On this tour, you will visit the stunningly beautiful village of Lindos by boat. On the way back, the boat will make stops at Anthony Quinn's Bay for photos and both Tsambika's and Lindos's emerald bays so you can relax and go for a swim. The boat departs at 8:50 AM from Mandraki port and returns at approximately 5:30 PM. Lindos is a magnificent acropolis on an imposing rock. On the top of the rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Lindos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000. The view of Lindos village, with its cubic houses sprawling down the hillside under the acropolis, is one of the most photographed scenes in Greece. The whitewashed labyrinth of little alleyways was deliberately designed to confuse pirates, today this layout makes wandering aroun...

    +1 hour free time in Lindos would be very useful, but the whole trip was perfect. Congratulations to the crew.

What people are saying about Lindos

I am paralysed t5/6 complete and 48, holidaying with my wife and another couple. The staff were excellent and the boat trip good. I could not get to the village but stopped on the beach below, the hill is massive and was too much. I’m 13 stone. The boat trip was good and you get access to the back deck so there’s enough to sit out in, catch the sun and watch the swimming. Pity about not seeing the village as was told it’s stunning. If you go by road you’ll get to see Lindos. If you’re not in my position and can get up to the village it’s a 10, not their fault but a 7 from me but that’s no reflection on the staff.

Our trip to Lindos was really well organised, pick up 5 mins walk from our hotel. The coach arrived on time at a reasonable time in the morning (9:45) and was easy to identify. We had just over 4 hours in Lindos, which was perfect for a look around and a leisurely lunch. The driver was informative and friendly. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Everything was perfect, from start to the end, well organized with fun instructors (4 of them) werry friendly talkative and patient.This trip was a brilliant choice and worth the money endeedi strongly recommend this to everyone.Was my first time on a kayak and was really brilliant, had a great time and i enjoy, will never forget

Was really very good and a lot of fun. Very nice guides who give you good tips for the whole holiday. Souvenir photos are also thought of. At the end there is a final drink that you have earned.

Great tour with lots of information and a nice picnic! We had a lot of fun and would book the tour again at any time.
