It included a meal that was supposed to be authentic Greek- It was terrible. Lindos, was just OK. We toured the Castle (OK) and Old Town. It was an 8 hour day and not enjoyable.

Our tour was called "Highlights of Rhodes". We took a bus to a monastery. It was interesting but I feel we spent too much time there. We next went to the reconstructed palace inside the walled city and toured a few rooms there. Then we walked a bit more through the town and the tour ended. After, we were able to wander on our own. Rhodes is really interesting. It had a similar feel to Malta. Our guide was funny and always talking about Greeks and greek culture and making funny comments. He was older with a pony tail. Wandering around the city was really great. We had a snack and a beer and went to the town plaza. There were a bunch of parrots there and we watched them and relaxed. We shopped a bit. We got lost but found our way back because we could see our ship looming in the distance! Read Less

Rhodes is wonderful in the old part. You can imagine the crusaders in the castle and walking along the streets. We first visited the Grandmaster's Palace and then the Crusader's hospital. The palace has been reconstructed but is still worth seeing. The hospital contains mostly statues and old antiques. The drive around the city and island afterward was also interesting. Read Less

Our family hired an English speaking driver off the boat. SAid we wanted to see Lindos, some Villages, and hit the beach. The driver had a Phd and was highly informative throughout the trip. He took us to Lindos, an ancient monastery, a nice beach (where we had a languid lunch at his friend's beachside Taverna), a centuries old family-held ceramics shop off the beaten path (we dropped too much money there - the family spoiled us and doted on us exclusively), and ultimately his own residence where he had large orchards -giving us bags of fresh grapes and oranges. He dropped us in Rhodos which is a beautiful old walled city founded by the crusaders. He charged me 270 Euro for 7 hours of driving my family all over the Island and taking us anywhere we wanted, adn to neat places we never thought of. I highly recommend hiring Greek drivers to guide you over a large group bus excursion. Read Less

We drove a jeep in a convoy up to the mountains on the northern end of the island. For a very modest price we had an incredible experience! And stops along the way made it comfortable for all. The staff were a lot of fun, and had activities for the kids that were on the trip. They were also extremely professional, and very safety conscious. They made sure each driver knew exactly what to do. We went off-road almost the whole time. It was amazing! Lunch was in a little villa on the Aegean Sea. Food was all from the farm! We were gone the entire day for E40 per person, plus E10 for lunch! Carolien, who ran things with her partner, took pictures all day, and at the end of the day made CDs for anyone who wanted one (small charge extra) capturing the best moments of the day, and being sure each jeep and each person was in the pictures. This is the biggest bargain going, and I recommend it heartily. All ages could enjoy this adventure. Read Less
