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.

It was a super nice trip. Picked up on time, had 4 hours in Lindos and then left on time. Travel time was exactly as advertised. Bus was air-conditioned. Acropolis cost 12 euros entry. This trip is highly recommended! We would definitely book that way again.

I found it very pleasant that the bus was air-conditioned, but not like a refrigerator. We were picked up on time and saw a lot on the way. Gladly to Lindos again, wonderful!

Everything worked out great - reliable pick up at the hotel. However, it is nothing more than a transfer

On time - exact description - very good bus driver
