Embark on this tour with the most knowledgeable driver in Rhodes--who just happens to have the most wonderful smile!

If you're an early riser and choose the 8 am tour, your journey begins in Old Town, where you'll pass through the street of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and visit the impressively-restored Palace of the Grand Masters. If desired, you can request a visit to the Jewish Synagogue here.

Next, OR the start of the 9 am tour, you'll head to the entrance of the Old Harbor, where the famous Colossus of Rhodes once stood, and then past the many hotel complexes on your way to the Acropolis of Rhodes. Enjoy an excellent panoramic view, and visit the Temple of Apollo, the Greek Stadium, and the Greek amphitheater.

Following a 35-mile drive to the east coast of the island, past beautiful small villages with many gnarled olive trees, you'll arrive in Lindos. As you approach Lindos, linger for a moment to admire the impressive view of the Acropolis and the village situated in the picturesque bay below. Driving south of Lindos, to St. Paul's Bay, you'll experience another magnificent view.

Upon reaching the main square of Lindos, you can enjoy shopping in the village or choose to climb the Acropolis of Lindos. a journey of 292 steps that you can make on foot or on a donkey.
