Amazing knowledgeable guide, Andrew, showed us the highlights of Rhodes as well as the history involved! Highly recommend!!!
Amazing tour with Stamos as our driver and guide!!
Joyce_C, 19-11-2022
When we arrived at port, at the end where you get on buses, a man stopped us and asked our name and pointed us directly to our driver. Stamos, our driver was a local man and was full of knowledge and stopped at every point he thought my husband might like to take a picture. He was an excellent guide, a gentleman and made us feel so comfortable. His car was extremely clean. He took us back with time to do a little shopping. You felt like you were visiting with a friend and hated to leave. It was a wonderful tour.
A special customized tour
SamanthaK, 27-10-2022
I booked this tour because it was advertised as fully customizable and good for first time visitors to Rhodes. After booking, I reached out to the company to inform them of my special physical needs and desire to do certain activities. The owner Nicholas responded promptly and confirmed all of my requests. I felt very comfortable that I had picked the best possible company for our tour.
Nicholas and his driver Emmanuel met us exactly on time just outside our cruise ship. Emmanuel took us on the drive in a clean and comfortable Mercedes Benz. We went to the highlights of Rhodes Island, a view from above Rhodes town, a stop at a sandy beach where I could experience the lovely Aegean waters, spectacular views of Anthony Quinn Bay, and Lindos, with a visit of Lindos town. We made a stop at a local family ceramics studio, where we enjoyed meeting such nice people and seeing their hand made designs. We mentioned to Emmanuel that we were interested in local olive oil, so we made a stop at a local vendor. At the end of our 5 hour tour, Emmanuel dropped us off inside Rhodes old town where it is actually closed to cars during the day! He really went out of his way to make it easier for me by driving us as close as possible to each highlight. Emmanuel spoke very good English and was so pleasant, knowledgeable and friendly!
We were extremely pleased with our tour in Rhodes and would enthusiastically recommend Rhodes Best Introduction to our friends, family, or anyone visiting Rhodes.
Leisurely tour

Leisurely tour of Rhodes, no museums or castles. Manuel was excellent driver and guide. Shopping opportunity in lidos.
Stunning Rhodes!
Mike_W, 24-10-2022
Traveling as two couples, We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through stunningly beautiful Rhodes. Our guide Andrew shared a wealth of information not only about the island and its history but about daily life in Rhodes, which we found especially fascinating. We also appreciated his flexibility in adjusting the itinerary and time schedule to accommodate our wishes.

Would have rated this 5 stars but the back seat of the Mercedes sedan was a tight fit for 3 passengers, with one riding up front. It was so cumbersome to fasten the seat belts in the back seat after each stop that we gave up and rode without them.
