    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 dates from the period of the Knights of the Order of St. John and they choose this place 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. The Knights of St. John in the 1480 AD build it on a rock 100 m. high in order to protect the island from attacks. In old times, this castle was 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.
