What people are saying about Dodecanese

Very nice activity with boat crossing in the sun with deckchairs we loved Lindos is very pretty it's really worth seeing we ate by the sea with our feet in the sand for a fair price then stroll under the sun because there are very few places shade The stops to jump into the open sea were really appreciated Top activity

Amazing amazing. I heard about this place online before coming and knew I had to book a trip there. This was recommended to me and did not disappoint. Beautiful place, great boat ride there and back with a stop half way there so we could get into the sea.

Our skipper was very nice and we were able to move freely everywhere on the boat and make ourselves comfortable on the top deck and had enough time at each station to enjoy the time.

It was a really fun day on the boat, the stops were very nice and well planned. Food serves its purpose, drinks are cheap

Best day of our holidays! The crew was super fun and we will definitely do it again if we come to Rhodes this summer
