The tour offers a wonderful trip to Embonas village for private wine tasting. You will know a lot about wine production in Greece and learn how to make famous traditional drink – Souma. Fall in love with Rhodes, enjoying stunning views which disappear gradually during the sunset seen from medieval Monolithos castle.

The visit to Monolithos Castle will stay with you forever. The 15th century fortress built by the Knights of Saint John on top of the mountain offers breathtaking views of surrounding mountains, nearby villages and the Mediterranean Sea. This Castle, being almost inaccessible, used to have a lot of influence. Inside the Monolithos Castle, you will find two well-preserved chapels of St. Panteleimon and St. George. For the crusaders the fortress was precious because of the strategic position from it the one could see and control everything. Time converted the power into beauty, which you will enjoy looking from here at the best sunset in Greece.

Before visiting the Castle, we offer you to visit Embonas village. This area is famous for the wine of excellent quality produced in its numerous vineyards. One of the wineries you will enter to discover traditions of wine production in Greece and to taste the best fruits of this hospitable land: wine, olive oil and honey. While in the village, visit the traditional house converted into a museum to find out how people used to live in this area in past centuries. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit a local distillery and see with your own eyes how the famous fig drink – Souma is made. Try the drink, just make sure that you stay near someone who knows the way back to your vehicle. Also, it may be a good idea to have some lunch (not included into the price of the tour) in one of the local taverns. In this case, your stomach will be ready to meet Souma and you will continue your day in a happy mood.

Thank you Telia Tours for making our private tour of Rhodes Island so pleasant and memorable. Our driver and guide George was very good. We asked him thousand of questions and he was patient enough to answer them all. More than that, he changed the tour route because we wanted to see Kiss of Two Seas - Mediterranean and Aegean, amazingly beautiful place! Telia tours didn,t chage us anything extra despite the fact that our wish to see that place had expended tour and route duration. George recommended a nice cozy taverna in one the villages in 70 km from Rhodes. OMG the quality or food was simply outstanding, the best place we ate in Rhodes. The bill was twice less than in those touristy places in the Old Town that we visited previously. We appreciate all the services provided, we spent an amazing day exploring Rhodes, George saved our money, showed us all the island incluidng his secret hidden placed, we fell in love with Rhodes and even became interested in their real estate market. We have been to many Greek isles but Rhodes has become our favorite one. It's big enough, very green, its parts and areas differ much from each other, for example those who like shopping and night life can find all that in the center of Rhodes town and Old town, those who want to hide form the civilization can go camping in the Southern part, the quality of food is great, especially purchasing from their farmers. They have many wineries in Embonas village in the mountans, wine quality is superb! We are wine lovers, we have never tried such delicious wines as in Embona, wine tasting is free there, you can taste all the wine they produce, nobody makes you purchase unless you wish to, people are very friendly there, they are not pushy at all. To cut long story short we highly recommened George, Telia and Rhodes. Those who like good wine, make sure you don;t miss wine tasting!
