A word of advice, get your tickets in advance. We went to visit the acropolis on Monday around 10 a.m. A crazy world was waiting to take its place, it's nice not to wait. Do not visit the site in flip flops and watch out for its slippage when going down to the village. A great discovery we took full eyes.

Recommend getting there early if you want a sunbed on the top dec - we were there around 8am due to timing of buses and were glad of it! Great trip to Lindos, we had plenty of time in town and the two swim stops on the way back were v fun!

Very professional and friendly staff. The boat was so clean and a good selection of food and drink. Plenty of places to sit or lie out in the shade or sun.

Had a lovely day on the boat to Lindos, it was very well organised. The swimming off the boat on the way back was amazing.

Easy to book online, good bar and clean toilets. A little few sundbeds, but plenty of chairs. The hosts was very nice.
