Theodore is a great and funny guy who loves what he does. We spent 3 hours with him and had a great tour. If you want to see all the different areas of Rhodes City than I highly recommend to book the tour. Riding the trikkes is very easy and a fun way of exploring the city. Thanks for showing us around.

It was a really fun tour of Rhodes Town with Theodore. He was very helpful in teaching me how to ride Trikke, and it was a breeze. I got to see parts of the town I wouldn't have found myself. I recommend this tour if you want to have a taste of the town and spend some exciting time.

Our Tour was amazing, Theodore is a great guide and knows his way around the city and its history. Theo, if you read this: The frozen yogurt was very good. You can definetly recommend it to your other customers :) Thank you again for this experience!

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!
