Fun activity. The guide Amélia is very pleasant and smiling. She is vigilant about security. He was to take this as a fun activity, not as a guided tour. This allows to have a global view of the city and its monuments, to prepare the more detailed visits that one wishes. You familiarize yourself relatively quickly with the handling of the Segway.

Fascinating visit to discover Lindos and its acropolis. The climb was not too heavy, our guide Dimitris prepared some stops during which he told the history of the site with anecdotes and curiosities. The view from the acropolis is beautiful. Visit and (and guide!) Absolutely recommended.

We did the tour with our children (21 and 12 years old) and it was great fun. It was perfectly organized and everything went very well. We would never have seen so much of the city if we had walked through it. Highly recommended!

It was really fun, although it was only a small group of three. Plenty of spots for pictures and historical facts. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great tour that can be recommended to everyone. No previous knowledge required. Only a sense of balance is beneficial.
