Nice tour and cute town. There is a mini Acropolis that you could climb. My husband did it and really enjoyed it. We also went to a ceramic factory and learned about the history of it. We got to watch some people create ceramics and of course there was shopping for items. Yes, they do ship. This factory has been in the family business for a long time. Nice tour and the tour guide did a good job talking about the town.

Rhodes&Lindos- Acropolis, Ceramics, & Grand Palace
April 02, 2023
Arriving on Rhodes, we took our tour bus to Lindos, learning much about this island's history, incl ancient & medieval, prominence in ceramics & pottery, and relaxed atmosphere from our knowledgeable, informative, and funny SEG guide. The Acropolis at Lindos is one amazing site! Shuttling to the base town, it is a tedious walk up with a few of our party taking donkeys! My daughter & I got our steps in and it was worth the walk! With nice sea views, it was surreal strolling thru this ancient site. One stop was to Bonis Ceramics, with a nice lesson in the craft and time to purchase handcrafted pottery. Last stop was a nice paced tour around the Palace of the Grand Masters, where we had the option to return to our ship or to shop and make our own way back. This was a definite must-do excursion to see such great highlights of this island with such a long and varied history!

Pink Umbrella tour group :)
November 04, 2022
Our tour guide was fun. She called us the Pink Umbrella tour group. That's how we could find her if we got lost walking along the way. She was a great tour guide. She gave us great knowledge of the history of LIndos and Rhodes. The Acropolis of Lindos is def a hike so you walk down a hill then walk through the cute down and up stairs, slopes. You def need good walking shoes and bring water along the way to see the Lindos Acroplis. But Rhodes is a great town for sure. the food, history and shopping was great. Thanks for the lovely memories and beautiful photos along the way.

Good visit to two areas of the Island

Solid guide with good English skills. The walk to the Acropolis at Lindos is definitely as described - a lot of steps and there were a great many people there so that the climb up is a little like a very slow parade. We very much enjoyed the walled town of Rhodes and would love to go back to explore further.

A must see!
October 01, 2022
We had a really great day on this tour -- a surprise stop at Bonis Ceramics (which was fabulous!), and then on to Lindos. There is a lot of walking on this tour -- but worth the walk up to see the ruins! Old town Rhodes is amazing too -- we thoroughly enjoyed our day, and it was one of the highlights of our entire trip!

We were lucky to have Nick and Libby as our driver and tour guide on August 7, 2022. We were treated like royalty and saw more than we expected. Libby was very knowledgeable and was willing to take pictures and answer all of our questions.

Great tour and guide
July 01, 2022
This tour was great. The tour guide was very knowledgable. There is quite a bit of climbing at the Acropolis so if you aren't able to do that, you can wait at the bottom. We had a couple who probably shouldn't have climbed up with us as it slowed the group down. Luckily the people on the tour were patient.

Enjoyed this excursion. Especially Lindos. It was an amazing spot. We had free time to explore which I really like. Not as excited about the visit to the pottery factory.

Shore Excursions staff were located at the port just as we disembarked the ship. We were greeted by Stefanos, our fantastic guide for the whole day. We traveled by bus to Lindos and climbed to the Acropolis with Stefanos who sat with us for 30 minutes or so to give us a rich history lesson. As a history junkie, this was just an amazing experience. We traveled back to "Old Town" and Stefanos continued the tour. We opted to stay instead of returning to the ship. We purchased tickets to the Grand Master's Palace and Museum. We were just blown away by the grandeur of it all. We highly recommend this tour and Stephanos.

Old Towne is the best...
October 28, 2019
Lindos is ok, the landscape is ok, but the Old Towne In Rhodes should not be missed..there should be more time for this last part of tour...we missed the bus back to the ship as we could not find our way to the right exit, but the half hour walk was a quick one so as not to miss boat! We left clothing etc on the bus and we THANK the guide, KiKi very much for making sure the stuff got to customer services in board and we got it back! Kiki was an expert..loved her history chat. Good value.

Another excellent selection. Tour guide was easy to find . He was knowledgeable. We especially liked the acropolis in Lindos. Climbed to the top on this 106 degree day.

Stefano met us right at the pier and our group was wonderfully small (16). He clearly loves his island and loves to share tons if information about during the drive our to Lindos. We stopped at a pottery house and got to see some being made and sold, but no pressure to buy. Then on to Lindos, where you could either go with him up to the Acropolis or stay in town and shop/eat. We chose the latter since it was so hot and met back at the bus at the agreed time. Then back to Rhodes where he told us all about the old city as he took us through it. He was a virtual encyclopedia of facts I could never retain. Then we could either walk back to the ship or go with him on the bus right to the gangway. Fantastic tour and great guide!

Great group tour of Lindos and Rhodes
July 21, 2019
Well-organized tour of Lindos and Rhodes. Bus left from cruise port for Lindos, and stopped on the way at a cool little pottery shop that gave us a nice demo. There was a retail opportunity associated with this, but there was zero pressure to buy. We then proceeded on to Lindos and received a guided tour of the site (admission fee included in tour price). We then reboarded the bus and returned to Rhodes for a walking tour of Old Town and the Fort, including the Grandmaster's Palace (from the outside). Guide discussed local history and culture while we were in transit. Fun day.

This tour allowed us to see the beauty of both Rhodes and the acropolis at Lindos. Our tour guide, Stefanos, was extremely knowledgeable and made the experience wonderful.

What a sleeper Rhodes is! We thought it would just be another stop, but the history is so interesting that we came back with a desire to learn even more about Rhodes and its history. The tour guide was extraordinary in that she had a wealth of knowledge as well as a great way of phrasing things. She seemed to anticipate questions and was extremely helpful. We took 7 excursions of 9 days, and this one was the best of the bunch.

One of the best

Entrance fee to Acropolis was covered by tour fee and was most impressive. Excellent tour guide. Scenery - seascapes - views were fabulous. Loved this Acropolis because if you made it to the top you could walk the entire site and view everything - including chambers and rooms. The fort was so impressive with its multiple moats and engineering. Much to see here and well worth it.
Rhodes Greece Shore Excursion

The shore excursion in Rhodes Greece was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and thorough on all the highlights we visited. Rhodes is a beautiful island with a lot of history. I definitely would recommend this excursion.

We loved this excursion and the opportunity to visit these special places. Our guide was excellent; he gave us lots of information but did not overwhelm us. Seeing some of the countryside on the drive out was nice too. The obligatory shopping stop was OK; must have been since we spent money there! The timing of the tour was just about perfect. Not too long and not too much walking either. Just right!

This really gives you a flavor of the island and it’s history. We loved the pottery stop and views of the island from there. The Acropolis in Lindos is spectacular but quite a climb. You don’t have much time for shopping/eating there if you go up and tour the Acropolis, but very worth it. The guide was wonderful and definitely worth the tour!

Amazing experience. Wear good shoes. It’s slippery. Hat and or umbrella. Spray water bottle, water, cash, go early!!!!! Hot and crowded. Very uphill walk totally worth it. Get an iced coffee along the way or way back

Great tour despite not being able to go to Lindos
September 17, 2018
Loved Rhodes even though we were not able to go to Lindos due to a bus driver strike. We instead did a walking tour of the old town. It was wonderful because when we started the shops were closed so there were not too many people. Our tour guide Stephanos was amazing, very knowledgeable and passionate. He was the only tour guide who provided water for us. We were told that we would receive a partial discount and I am still waiting for it.

Things go Ary - Buss Strike kills tour
August 25, 2018
We were unable to go on this tour. There was a bus strike when we arrived. This left us without transportation. The had an alternate tour which involved about three hours of walking. My 88 year old Mother-in-law was not up to this so we had to pass. I have to say however, that the company gave us a full refund. No argument, no debate, no issues. They were very helpful and courteous. Not being able to take the tour, it is hard to rate it a 5 star, but they were very willing to provide a refund so I gave it 3 stars.

Great tour of a Lovely Island
August 20, 2018
A beautiful drive along the coast with a stop at a pottery factory began the tour. At Lindos, the walk to the acropolis was strenuous but the history and views of the area were amazing. The tour finished with a short walk thru Rhodes's old town. This was a very good tour and Mary was a wonderful guide. Highly recommend.
