The driver was very kind, and helpful. The butterfly valley was amazing, Filermos Hill wasn't too big, but there is a wonderful landscape and a very kind monastery. You have to climb stairs, but this beautiful view worth it. Even the lenght of the journey was perfect too.

Great journey around Rhodes. Gives you a glimpse of everything and you can stop and get off anytime and experience all Rhodes has to offer.

We only had a few hours in Rhodes at the end of our honeymoon so this was an ideal way to see the city in a short period of time.

Very good, especially the submarine with the diving show!

Everything was great and the staff was very nice...
