Rodi Città antica/medioevale. Patria dei Greci , ma anche dei molti popoli che l'hanno attraversata, nonchè dei Cavalieri Ospitalieri i quali, cacciati dagli ottomani, fuggirono a Malta e presero il nome di Cavalieri di Malta, è un meraviglioso miscuglio di stili e arte. Tutti i monumenti sono un bellissimo connubio tra oriente e occidente. Anche l'Italia ha avuto la sua parte nella conservazione dei beni culturali di Rodi antica, quando Rodi fu assegnata come Provincia all'Italia stessa. E, in quell'occasione, Mario Lago Luogotenente della Provincia di Rodi, ne fece rifiorire l'arte e la cultura, compiendo numerose opere e restauro di molti monumenti. Il castello medioevale è uno dei monumenti meglio conservati della città. IL Museo archeologico di Rodi era sede della Provincia ai tempi di Mario Lago ove è conservata una tra le più belle opere d'arte d'origine greca che si possa immaginare: Una piccola statua di " Afrodite che esce dal bagno" nuda inginocchiata nell'atto di lavarsi i capelli. Essa è alta non più di 50 cm datata I sec a.C. colpisce per la raffinatezza dei lineamenti del viso e la perfezione del corpo e le movenze dello stesso: INEGUAGLIABILE! Le bellezze architettoniche, archeologiche e paesaggistiche, unite ad un magnifico mare e a lunghe spiagge, alla partenza fanno rimpiangere il poco tempo che hai avuto a disposizione, per conoscerla meglio. Rodi è stata nominata dall'UNESCO "Monumento Mondiale di eredità Culturale".

A lovely tour We spent an enjoyable half day with Nicholas; we hadn't been in Rhodes for 43 years and were really looking forward to being on this beautiful island again. We were able to see everything we wanted to see in a clean vehicle with a gracious, knowledgeable driver. If you have the opportunity to have Nicholas show you the sites, you would be extremely pleased. Can't recommend this enough.

Nickolas made Rhodes a wonderful experience Nickolas was personable, treated us like family, and did an excellent job showing us the sites that were tailored to our interests. He was also engaging and provided commentary on the culture, family life. Rhodes is stunning and he presented the history well and is clearly passionate about the island. Great experience.

A wonderful tour and driver My husband and I booked this tour and were joined by another couple from our ship, the Pacific Princess. We all enjoyed our trip immensely and found our driver /guide Agapitos to be professional and personable. We visited all the highlights as described and enjoyed this lovely overview of the island,as well as our stop at the ceramic factory where we watched some talented artisans do their craft. We especially appreciated our stop at the Jewish cemetery which was very emotional and interesting and were very pleased that ourvdriver arranged for the synahogue and museum to be opened up especially for us..since our visit was not during the tourist season and they didn't have regular hours at the day we arrived . We were so glad that we booked this tour and found the price reasonable for the 4 of us and aopreciated this very personalized Rhodes tour with Jewish highlights do much. It was a wonderful day to enjoy the time we had at this port. We topped off our day with some free time in the old city for a delicious beer..and an easy walk back to our shop.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE It was extremely fabulous experience from the very start to the end. Our driver was so knowledgeable and polite and the tour was exactly what we needed. The car was so specious and luxury, with full aircondition - the perfect way to tour Rhodes. We also had a great stop for lunch in a superb tavern right on the sea edge. What a great day! Thank you for all and we will be sure back to this fantastic island.

See All Stops of Our Castles Tour & Countryside

Stop 1Filerimos Hill

First in our program is the famous Filerimos Hill. This place was used as the citadel of the ancient town of Ialyssos. You will be greeted from dozens of peacocks and you will be able to see the 2 monasteries which are situated there and the 18m high cross. You will be rewarded with a gorgeous panoramic view of the West Coast.

Stop 2Ancient Kamiros

Kamiros is a destination for history and archeology lovers, 32km far from the city of Rhodes. This archeological place contains the ruins of the Hellenistic city of Kamiros(founded around 3rd BC century), which created together with the ancient Ialyssos and Lindos the great city-state of Rhodes, founded by Dorians in the 10th century BC

Stop 3Kritinia Castle

From here we will continue our drive on the West Coast of the Island and we will visit the ruins of Kritinia castle. The castle of Kritinia(Kastello) is a Venetian castle built in 1472 on a steep rock 131m high. It offers a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, the West Coast of Rhodes, the island of Chalki and some other deserted islands. The castle was built during the period of the Knights of the Order of St. John and this place was chosen because of its strategic location and 360-degree observation view of the sea.
Surrounded by the beautiful landscape you will really enjoy your visit.

Stop 4Panoramic View of Monolithos Castle

From there we will continue our drive among the West Coast of the island and our next stop will be little before we reach the castle of Monolithos. From this point you will be able to soak in the spectacular panoramic view of the castle and grab memorable panoramic photographs before heading to the castle itself.

Stop 5Monolithos Castle

Next in our program is the castle of Monolithos which was built by the Knights of St. John in the 1480 AD in order to protect the island from attacks and is placed on a rock 100 m. high. In old times, this castle was considered one of the four more powerful fortresses on the island, but today only the external walls fortifications remain. Inside the perimeter of the walls, there are two 15th century chapels, St. Panteleimon and St. George. Today the castle is widely ruined but it offers great views of the sea and the two islets opposite to it. Access to the castle is by a staircase cut into the rock. In fact, the path towards the castle is so rough that no one has ever managed to conquer it.
We will have at least 40 min stop here so you will be able to reach and explore the ruins of the castle and admire the beauty of the place.

Stop 6Return Trip

We will return back to the city of Rhodes and we can leave you directly to your hotel or ship or at any point of interest

2 Private Island Tours. Wonderful Experience
Before our planned stay on the Rhodes Island, we have booked 2 private taxi tours with this company, and it was totally worth it. We saw everything we wanted to, and even more.
Our first tour was to the town of Rhodes, and we saw all the highlights and had more than enough time to climb the Clocktower, to enjoy the grandeur of the Grand Master Palace and to wander around the narrow streets of the Medieval Town. We had an excellent driver, Michael, who lives in Rhodes Town, and was happy to share his knowledge and experience with us. He is a real pleasure to talk to, and speaks very fluent English. He even made a little detour specially for us and drove us through some parts of the Town, though they were quite narrow to navigate in a car (which is another plus – for driving excellence:-)). On the way to our hotel near Lindos, he also made a few detours from the main road just to show us the beautiful and picturesque panoramas and authentic landscapes, and told us loads of interesting stuff about the life on and the history of the island, which was very nice of him.
On the second day, we had Dominic as our driver, and explored Prasonisi, and the Western part of the island (Monolithos and Kritinia castles). We enjoyed it immensely! At the end, Dominic found a desolate “wild” beach for us to spend some time on – exactly as we asked (for which our special thanks to Dominic).
All in all, both trips were excellent and totally worth the money.
What was also important for us, is that the planning and arranging the tours was extra smooth and easy with this company. We could choose any date, any time, and any destination, without any deposits (payment to the driver at the end of the trip), which is very convenient and customer-oriented.
We would definitely recommend this company to all travelers who want to explore Rhodes without compromising on quality and comfort.

Unforgettable road trip!!!
Impressive ride! Mr. Agapitos made us a ride across the east side of Rhodes. From the Acropolis of Rhodes and Kalithea, until Faliraki, Ladiko, and Afandou beach. Then he drove us to the Kalathos beach and after to the majestic Lindos and Pefkos village. On the way back we stopped for dinner at Argo restaurant. In the evening the driver took us to the medieval castle of Rhodes. The taxi was very clean and spacious and the driver very polite with good knowledge of English. If you find yourself in Rhodes do make this impressive ride. I suggest it to all of you guys. It was amazing and unforgettable experience.
