    The guys were great. Good boat driver. Drinks & snacks were good too. It seems the Agean Sea is really not good snorkeling, but the 3 swimming spots were nice. One was a cave& swimming into it was cool. They needed better snorkeling gear. Fins would have been nice. We didn't go far to find our swimming spots.

  • From Rhodes City: Boat Day Trip to Lindos

    On this tour, you will visit the stunningly beautiful village of Lindos by boat. On the way back, the boat will make stops at Anthony Quinn's Bay for photos and both Tsambika's and Lindos's emerald bays so you can relax and go for a swim. The boat departs at 8:50 AM from Mandraki port and returns at approximately 5:30 PM. Lindos is a magnificent acropolis on an imposing rock. On the top of the rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Lindos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000. The view of Lindos village, with its cubic houses sprawling down the hillside under the acropolis, is one of the most photographed scenes in Greece. The whitewashed labyrinth of little alleyways was deliberately designed to confuse pirates, today this layout makes wandering aroun...

    +1 hour free time in Lindos would be very useful, but the whole trip was perfect. Congratulations to the crew.

    Absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience. The guides are so fun, helpful and knowledgeable and they really make the experience special. They provided us with a picnic lunch with fresh ingredients and traditional Greek food, of which there was plenty to go around. We even finished the day with a race and a beer. We used the hotel transfers which was so efficient and handy. Definitely the best thing we’ve done in Rhodes and would definitely recommend!
