        Everybody loved this excursion. The food was terrific and the crew was so knowledgeable. The cave was the best.

        It was much more than I expected!!!
        To say that this was a perfect day would be a huge understatement. Vasilis is wonderful person, and he cares so much about Rhodes, it's shows in every story he tells you. We were also fortunate that his wife joined is for the day. I cannot recommend this company enough, it's definitely not your cookie cutter tour company, it's truly authentic!

        Beautiful valley great experience
        The valley is very pretty and the walkways very safe. When the butteries swarm it is a spectacular sight. The only down side had to pay for toilets. Alexis was a great host and very knowledgeable and friendly.

        A great way to experience a different side of Rhodes
        We really enjoyed every aspect of this tour. We were greeted in the morning by Alexis, our guide for the day, who collected us from our hotel and drove us up to the 'Valley of the Butterflies'. The valley was a very unique experience, very much helped by it being the correct season so there were plenty of butterflies there (I believe July to September is the right time but don't quote me on that!). The walk all the way up to the monastery is up a lot of steps and the ground through the valley is quite uneven so just be mindful of that before you venture out Then we headed off to the wine tasting at a local vineyard and winery which was not too far away from the valley. The wines were lovely and we also sampled some local olive oil and some spirits which was great! Rather than have lunch at the winery, we opted to extend our tour to drive to Apollona to have lunch there, stopping along the way at some notable landmarks. This was considerably off the beaten track so it was really nice to see an arguably more authentic part of the island. Also the honey and olive oil we bought at the local shop in Apollona was amazing! Special mention must go to our guide Alexis, who was very personable and knowledgeable about the island and was a great guide for the day. It really made the difference having that more personal touch for a trip like this. Definitely give this a whirl if you want to have an experience which feels a bit more unique!

        Moths Valley?
        Vastly overrated experience.Led by guide (Stefen) who during the tour old us they weren't butterflies but moths (butterflies sounded nicer to draw in tourists).Moths Valley?Yeh, I get it.

        Great day out on the sea
        What a lovely trip we had. The crew was lovely and knowledgeable. They even catered delicious food for all of us include our child who has food allergies. All the stops were lovely and we soaked in the beauty of this island. I’d highly recommend this trip even with young children.

        A nice get away from the touristic areas
        We really enjoyed this tour and it was a welcome change from the coast. Our guide, Alex, took us into the interior of Rhodes which is completely different to the more developed areas. It’s very green and our walk through the valley of butterflies was so relaxing and cooling. Then we took a little wine tasting before heading into the mountains. We stopped at an amazing small 15c church before taking a huge lunch in Apollonon - we couldn’t finish it despite Alex choosing delicious authentic dishes. If you enjoy walking, culture and getting away from the bustle then you’ll really enjoy this.

        Very nice and friendly guide. Great service and host at the wine tasting. Maybe to have a bit more wine to taste, but great overall and very nice lunch.

        Custom wine tasting and sightseeing
        My wife and I booked this tour, but were able to customize it since we had already visited Butterfly Valley. Vasilis picked us up and took us to a few beautiful locations that we hadn't heard of before, giving us plenty of time to look around and providing information as we went along. The wine tasting itself was really nice, at a family-run winery. Since the winery is currently not providing lunch every day, we were taken to a little traditional cantina on the beach where we had a fantastic selection of Greek food, that Vasilis picked out for us based on what we like. All in all a really great experience, both for the locations you'll visit and for the friendly, knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend.

        Great Sailing Day Tour
        Had a full day sailing tour around Rhodes island with great captain and first mate, beautiful boat (downstairs could have been cleaner), great service and we had them drop us off at isolated local restaurant for lunch. Highly recommend!

        Nice people - pretty setting
        We wanted to go snorkeling when we were in Greece and our travel curator, Zephyr Travel Curators, helped us find this excursion. The provider, Rhode Trip, was great. They picked us up at our door, took us to the boat, and greeted us when we returned to take us back to our Airbnb. The bays were very beautiful, the lunch was great. The only word of warning - for us lightweights, the water was too cold for snorkeling! There were four of us from our group (all from Seattle) - we got in the water and got out pretty quick due to the cold. The one other person, from Finland, did snorkel and did not mind the water temperature. So, one recommendation, if you are "weenies" like us, go later in the summer when the water temperature is warmer. But overall, we had a delightful time sailing and enjoying the day.

        Amazing guides!
        We asked Rhodetrip to be our private guides for a full day tour of the Island. They were very kind, with exceptional local knowledge. We really saw the best of Rhodes with these guys. An excellent choice and the best value for money!

        Our trip
        Me and my partner went on this trip last week. Our captain, George, was so accommodating and full of information about Rhodes. It was lovely to see so much of Rhodes and all of the bays. Would 100% recommend😊

        Taxi pick up was in time. Sailing Trip startet in time. Unfortunately there was not enough wind. So the motor had to help. Weather was ideal for snorchling and swimming at the beaches. Very good on the Greek Sea !

        Beautiful track
        We walked yesterday to the top of akrimatis from monolitos with guide Vasilis and guide joergos. Started at 10 and dinished before lunch at 14 hours. First part went up strongly but after visiting chapel of st john tour became moderate. Splendid views on the way and at the top. We will come again.

      Outstanding private tour with lots of spontanious decisions to your personal likings. We met Alexis as a tour guide and left him as a friend. Absolutely great all his ideas, he comes up with. You can decide what of all you prefer, a real private tour personalized to the participants preferences. We highly recommend the tour in Rhodes marvelous countryside with the wine taste and village of Apolona, don't miss to have lunch there!
      Every cent of this tour is well worth, for a truly rhodian experience with locals.
      Many thanks, cannot wait to come back.
