Excellent tip, very well organized! Big thank you to the nice driver and to the amazing tour guide, Marianna. She is passionate about her job and she gave us so many information about Rhodes that I still couldn't process how amazing the trip was. I loved Butterfly Valley the most, it's breathtaking and could be worth more than 1.15 hr stop there but it's just my personal opinion. :) The lunch was also nice, huge portion with free white and red wine plus water. I'd definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is interested to see some local places and hear about the island's history.

We enjoyed this trip more than we expected! Maria was a great guide who gave interesting information and the stops on the tour were all great. We could have done without the wine-tasting as it’s clearly just a sales pitch and too quick and rushed to be helpful if you really were interested in buying wine - but it’s not a deal breaker! As well as visiting all the different sites, we were really pleased just to see more of the island, even if just through the coach window.

Well organised and very informative guide (Maria). Busy schedule. Have to be reasonably fit - each stop lots steps up… lunch not till 2.30… take snacks. But we’ll worth doing.

Fabulous tour, lots to see and do! Very good way to get around the island without the hassle! Lovely tour guide and excellent bus driver!

Great day out , guide was brilliant and informative!
