I recommend sea kayaking activity. Very nice, friendly and helpful crew. The route is not demanding and should be managed by every healthy person. During the trip, about 50 minutes break for diving and refreshments in the cave. Rhodes city pickup and return without problems. I recommend Trekking Hellas Rhodes.

The experience was perfect right from the pickup and all through the introduction, the kayaking, the history anecdotes, the snorkeling and swimming, the lovely homemade lunch, and the photos received after getting back. It was a perfect treat while being a great workout.

My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much! The tour guides and our driver were super friendly and everything was well organized. The picnic was delicious! The kayaking on the crystal clear water was amazing and this will be day we will always remember.

An unforgettable experience, a beautiful tour with great pictures of the coast. Enjoyed a break at a beautiful spot with the opportunity for snorkeling and cliff jumping. Supplemented by some nice Rhodes stories. Kudos to Yannick and Kay! Many Thanks

Super good guide and it was just so beautiful. Cool way to experience more of Rhodes. Can be highly recommended.
