Tour Details

Best of Lindos and Rhodes

Step back into time as you walk in the footsteps of history and explore the remarkable Grecian towns of Lindos and Rhodes. Your journey of discovery will take you along breathtaking coastlines and through small, quaint villages as you make your way to these ancient cities.

When you first catch a glimpse of the ancient, unbelievably scenic Lindos, it will take your breath. Stand in the 535 feet tall Acropolis and savor stunning views of the entire village as it tumbles below to the aquamarine sea. As you enter the town you'll find yourself in a magical place of hidden alleyways where stacked, ornate houses of long-ago sea captains now are occupied with tantalizing tavernas, atmospheric bars and the coolest cafes. Be sure to bring your camera to capture shots of the medieval castle, white-washed houses, colorful courtyards and Lindos' famous mosaics. While here you will also visit the Byzantine Church of the Ascension and enjoy free time to explore the area on your own. This walking tour will also take you down the Street of the Knights flanked by inns that were once occupied by the Crusaders. At the bottom of the street you will reach the 14th century Knights Hospital-turned-Archaeological Museum.

Travel next to Rhodes where you will watch ceramics being carefully crafted from the world-renowned Rhodes potters. The island is known for its tradition in pottery and ceramics, as there are documents stating that clay bricks from the island of Rhodes were used in construction of the dome of "Agia Sofia" Byzantine church in Constantinople. A quick ride up to Monte Smith will reward you will panoramic views of the town and Aegean Sea. Walk through the Gate d'Amboise in the city's medieval walls to see and explore the 14th century Grand Master's Palace.

Throughout the tour your guides will share the history and culture of the cities of Lindos and Rhodes. This popular tour sells out fast so claim your reservation and book now!

Our tour guide, Stefanos was excellent! He is so knowledgeable and makes 'learning' interesting! Rhodes was my favorite for our Greece ports!

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.

Awesome Day!

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.
