What people are saying about Rhodes Town

We misunderstood that the tour was strictly a walking tour. My mother is 77 so we were a bit concerned. Our guide, Nikos, was amazing! He was so accommodating and made the experience so wonderful for all of us. He’s very knowledgeable and we leaned so much. In addition, he is so caring and kind. The company was also wonderful and got us a driver for a short scenic tour. Would definitely advise to book this tour!

We had a great time with Dimitri who shared his knowledge of Rhodes old town, the island's history and Greek culture with us. The course in the old town allows to highlight the different periods of the history of the island and the city. Dimitri's kindness and his perfect command of French obviously added to the conviviality of the moment.

Un moment très enrichissant avec des vins délicieux mais surtout une guide experte et passionnante (et passionnée). Là session de 70minutes a basculé sur des échanges amicaux de 2h tout en apprenant la richesse des vins de Grèce!

Dimitrios was an excellent guide , we learned so much as a family about so much history . My 12 and 14 year old daughters also found it so educational and Dimitrios was a fantastic host , we would recommend 100% !!

A very nice and super relaxed introduction to the subject of wine. We learned a lot and had fun. Great ambience and Alexandra was great!
