This was a must do whilst in Rhodes and the highlight of our trip. A fabulous day offering chance to see much of the coastline and wonderful bags of Rhodes as well as fitting in a trip to Lindos and a visit to the Acropolis. The team were so friendly and accommodating nothing was too much trouble and everything was done at our own pace. The lunch we had at the traditional Greek restaurant in Lindos was fabulous and the food was so fresh and tasty. This is such a good experience I can not recommend it enough and for all that’s included is exceptional value. Thank you so much Jimmy Maria and George! COVID measures in place and well adhered to also.
Symi is beautiful and well worth the travelling to get there. However we had planned to do a lot there but it was so hot that we just wandered around, ate lunch, ice cream and had lots of cold drinks! The ferry crew need to tell passengers to wear masks though. The voice on the loud speaker was hard to understand but did say that masks were compulsory. A lot of people ignored the rule and the crew did nothing.
I booked this tour as I wanted to see the wonderful colourful houses of Symi. The transfer was good and I really liked the stop at the Panormitis Monastery on our way to the actual destination. The second "stop" was a mere drive-by and didn't really add something to the whole experience. However, Symi is lovely the people are super freindly and if you are up for a little hike, the view is just amazing.
Very good value for the money. It was well organized and everything ran on time and bus service to the port was very helpful. It was nice that the food concessions on board were reasonably priced. Often food and beverages on tour boats are absurdly priced. The boat is old but sturdy and seaworthy. The heads could use a refit.
The tour was very pleasant. The pickup happened right on time and we were given plenty of time to explore the monastery and the town of Symi. The weather was very hot on the day I visited, so I chose to go to the small beach north of the town for one hour before leaving the island, and I would definitely recommend it!
