An unforgettable experience!!! I was lucky enough to be the only one who attended that day. Dimos, the guide was very personable, funny and did his job really well, explained everything well and was very concerned about my safety. He showed me hidden corners in Rhodes town that I would never have seen/found on my own. The best part was that he took photos and videos during the tour and sent them to me later. The best part came at the end, seeing the sunset high above the city. Fantastic!!!

wow! excellent tour. we'll planned and well done. The immensity and the length of the walls of the old town become much more apparent riding all around them. The guides were great, and the ebikes made it possible to ascend to the high point even for someone as out of shape as I am. Highly recommend this

Great and very friendly guides and good bikes. We enjoyed the tour because we saw a good variation of the medieval town inside and around the old town. The sunset view was amazing.

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.

Great tour with knowledgeable guide,good quality bikes, a great way to see the town.
