Rhodes Back Country Adventure

Explore more on the island of Knights Rhodes, on a semiprivate premium safari tour for up to 6 people per vehicle. Discover the mountainous northern non-tourist parts of Rhodes Island from West to East, far away from mass tourism and crowded places, through the natural beauty of the mountains whilst enjoying the best panoramic views. Get ready for a day to remember at unique places that only a four-wheel vehicle can approach.

Start your day tour from the Rhodes cruise Port as you head towards the east side of the island. You and your group will navigate on a mixture of on and off-road routes in the peaks of the mountains with panoramic views, wild life and stunning nature. Our adventure day continues by following a German Italian war route with historical points of interest through villages like Archipoli, Eleousa, Profit Ilias, and Embonas.

During the ride the experienced tour guide provides you with lots of local history and information, stories and insights, as we pass through small villages, monasteries, and chapels. The hidden off-road paths through the dense vegetation give us the opportunity to marvel up close to the natural beauty and enjoy the heartfelt hospitality and local knowledge of our escorts. Continuing our day tour from east to west, we reach a small traditional village where our lunch stop takes place. Fully refreshed we continue our tour, following an easy asphalt route back to the cruise ship.

Our escort drivers with the help of the premium off -road vehicles will offer you the most exciting day in Rhodes, allowing you to take in the best panoramic views of Northern, East, and West Rhodes with opportunities to capture every moment, embrace the local hospitality while enjoying the professional yet relaxed service.

Our tour guide was Michael and he was absolutely AMAZING!! He was so knowledgeable and made sure that we were always comfortable and having fun. The food was amazing and it was overall such a great experience. At the end of the trip my dad accidentally left his phone in a Michaels car. Michael drove all the way back to our cruise ship to make sure my dad had his phone. I recommend requesting Michael as your tour guide. You will love him just as much as my family and I did.

This tour is mainly about seeing the island of Rhodes and the off-road part is just a small bonus. One could easily rent a car near the pier for less and see almost as much though without the flavor of a local guide.

What a delightful day we spent exploring the countryside of Rhodes. There had been torrential rains, so mudslides were abundant. Our fearless guides just improvised and wound around hills, over impossibly narrow paths all the while answering our questions and stopping for us to take photos. The food was plentiful and superb. Luckily, the local Princess rep helped our guides find us even though it was not his job since we booked apart from Princess. He directed the drivers to our dock which saved our trying to call them! We had two vehicles and 5 couples.

Disappointed this is the first review. This was an amazing and such a memorable experience. There were 6 in our group so there were two jeeps. My husband and I were in the jeep with Thanasis. He is now our favorite person. He tailored the tour completely to us. I mentioned loving the beach, so he took us to a beach. He had a genuine passion and love for Rhodes and Greek culture so he had so much knowledge to share with us. We truly fell in love with Thanasis and actually experienced separation anxiety after our 8 hour trip together haha. The stops were beautiful, the food was amazing, and the guys were the best. I could not recommend this tour more! Forget what anyone says about booking excursions outside of your crew ship, I promise you they're better, cheaper, and you'll be so much happier!
