What people are saying about Rhodes

We had a really fun tour on the trikkes with our guide, Theo! He gave a thorough demonstration of how to operate the trikke and was very careful to give driving instructions every step of the way as we rode through town. It was a cool way to cover alot of distance in a short period of time. The only drawback to this type of tour is that it’s difficult to take photos on the go although Theo often offered to stop so we could photos at scenic spots. Theo was an excellent guide and it was a very enjoyable way to spend a morning!

A really lovely day out - though I absolutely recommend doing this trip early on in your holiday when you still have energy because it is exhausting! Completely worth it though.

Fun way to learn a little about the city. Kids would love it.

Fun for both adults and children! Approx 30 mins long.

Very good tour, very interesting and easy to follow!
