This private half day tour is a perfect opportunity to see the highlights of Rhodes.

In the company of our fully licensed, knowledgeable and very friendly guide you will start the day from driving to Filerimos. The Filerimos monastery in unusual for Greece Gothic style was built on the place of the old Byzantine church and that one on the ruins of the Hellenic temple of Athena Polias. The place is unique since it combines the traces not only of different centuries but also of different cultures. The Monastery is located on the hill from which opens breathtaking view of turquoise Augean sea. The sight is beloved by the locals, and quite often you may glimpse here charming wedding ceremonies. After the guided tour, you will have some free time to enjoy the magical spirit and beauty of the place.

Then in our comfortable air-conditioned minivan you will go along the sparkling coast to the ancient Acropolis of Rhodes where used to be the stadium, small theatre and the Temple of Apollo. The guide will do his best to convert the stones around you into alive witnesses of the glorious past.

The next stop will be the Gate d'Amboise where you leave your minivan and enter the Old City of Rhodes to enjoy the walking tour along narrow streets of the history. The guide will invite you to visit the impressive Palace of the Grand Masters. While looking at the interiors you will know for whom the palace was built in the14th century, who destroyed it in the 19th and why it was completely rebuilt in the 20th.

After leaving the palace, you will continue the tour walking along the Street of Knights where once lived the crusades in specially constructed inns. Nowadays, there are private residences, shops, taverns and even schools. Down the street you will find the 15th century Knight's Hospital, which is today a very interesting Archaeological Museum. The Hospital is incredibly well-preserved, that makes it a priceless source of information about everyday life of the crusades.

In the Old Town you will be given some free time which you can use for climbing the walls of the Medieval fortress or for visiting the Archaeological Museum or just for buying an ice-cream and enjoying the moment. Meet your guide again, ask him any questions you like and after a short drive, come back to the pier in excellent mood. If you want to stay longer in the old city, the guide will explain how to get back to the port on your own.

Please remember that we are ready to make all necessary changes to convert this tour into the perfect experience for you!
