Super great trip with Manos! Great tour guide with a good knowledge of German. Manos also shows corners where the tourist bus cannot get there. A lot of knowledge since he has been running the office in Rhodes for 22 years. Definitely recommend the tour. Super well-maintained, clean vehicle with all the ailments. Covid requirements all met. Therefore 5 stars! Thank you MANOS!

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.

The guide knew a lot about the story and was funny at the same time. He walked around after the tour and showed good restaurants and a part of the old town that you do not see on the tour. Worth all the money.

Our guide Michael was excellent and very knowledgeable. He took time to answer all my questions. The minibus and driver Michael were great too. Thank you.

Costa was an excellent guide! He was really entertaining with all of his stories about the Old town in Rhodos.
