We misunderstood that the tour was strictly a walking tour. My mother is 77 so we were a bit concerned. Our guide, Nikos, was amazing! He was so accommodating and made the experience so wonderful for all of us. He’s very knowledgeable and we leaned so much. In addition, he is so caring and kind. The company was also wonderful and got us a driver for a short scenic tour. Would definitely advise to book this tour!

We met in the empty magical morning Rhodos. Dimitrios was excelent not only as a guide, but also person. His way of story telling and comunication hooked us up right from the start and we enjoyed each little bit of it. Also gave us some nice tips for whole Rhodos, which we used and helped us enjoy our holiday more. You wont regret taking him as a guide!

We had a great time with Dimitri who shared his knowledge of Rhodes old town, the island's history and Greek culture with us. The course in the old town allows to highlight the different periods of the history of the island and the city. Dimitri's kindness and his perfect command of French obviously added to the conviviality of the moment.

Dimitrios was an excellent guide , we learned so much as a family about so much history . My 12 and 14 year old daughters also found it so educational and Dimitrios was a fantastic host , we would recommend 100% !!

Dimitri is a very friendly and professional guide! We had a great time. The visit at the end of the day is to be recommended!
