Private Half day tour in Rhodes City: New and Medieval Town
Professional English speaking Guide – Stops to the most popular Highlights of the City Center of Rhodes! – Walking inside the OLD TOWN!

Excursion Details:

Don’t miss our Rhodes City Tour with one of our luxury mini buses, a truly unique opportunity for every visitor to see all the sights and points of interest in the heart of the City, with this Rhodes private tour while we will be driving around to the most important sights of the city center:

  •    The Three Windmills were used in the past to grind grains brought from vessels that moored in the harbor of Rhodes. There used to be more windmills, possibly 13 or 14 but now only three remain and they have been extensively renovated offering a great opportunity for instagrammable photos!
  •   The Mandraki harbor with its impressive monumental buildings built by the Italians. Mandraki harbor has been a harbor since antiquity. The Knights of Rhodes moored their fleet in this harbor and today it houses modern yachts.

Rhodes on foot

  • The sculptures of the Rhodian Deer, a stag and a doe, stand on slim columns on either side of the Mandraki Harbor entrance. It is believed that the statue of Colossus once stood here. Today these two charming Rhodian deer sculptures serve as the guardians of the Port.

The next highlight of our tour is passing in front of the Underwater Marine Aquarium. The aquarium of Rhodes is a research center, aquarium and a museum. It was built in the 1930s, when the island was under the Italian rule and currently functions under the administration of the National Centre of Marine Research. It offers the visitors the chance to visit it another day and have a close up view of the Eastern Mediterranean marine life, giving you the impression of being underwater!

Passing from Monte Smith, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the City and the sea shore, the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, the impressive open air Ancient Stadium and the Amphitheatre

At the end of our 40 minutes driving panoramic City tour, we stop outside one of the main gates of the famous Medieval City of Rhodes also known as the Old Town, a monument of world cultural heritage.

    

Then, you can continue on foot with the help of our Professional Guide. If you want to visit the Archaeological Museum, you can make all necessary arrangements with your guide (entrance fee for the museum 6 euros-optional activity). You will get the opportunity to travel for 1 hour and 30 minutes in the Medieval history of the island, walking through the famous Street of the Knights all the way up to the Grand Master’s Palace. The famous Order of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem has left an incredible mark on the island and walking around the alleys makes you feel like you can almost hear the hoofbeats of the horses and the history of Rhodes whispering in your ear! The feeling of exploring the medieval streets of Rhodes is almost indescribable. Time seems to have stopped in the Middle Ages and the atmosphere is shrouded in the haze of its knightly past.

That’s why you will have an hour of extra free time for photographs, maybe a coffee stop, buying souvenirs and discovering the secrets of the Old City yourself. Maybe the cobbled streets and the Gothic towers will reveal their deepest secrets to you.

If you want to visit the Archaeological Museum it can be arranged with your guide.

(Entrance fee for the museum 6 euros – optional).

If you can not reach us out, you can always ask at your hotel front desk to give us a call and help you with your booking.
We also offer some of the tours through various Booking Channels, like Viator, Get Your Guide, Civitatis, Sunbonoo.

How early in advance should I book?

Booking early (shortly before your arrival to Rhodes or soon upon your arrival) is recommended for tours during peak season (July, August, September).
Travellers visiting Rhodes for one day or with a very limited time frame should consider booking their tour as far in advance as possible.

What is the latest I can book the trip?

We gladly accept last-minute reservations. You can pop into our office until 22:00 (in peak season you will find us there even until 23:00).
Our Booking Engine has live availability for reservations up to 12 hours before the departure on most of our tours.
But surely, to avoid any disappointment, especially during the peak season, it is recommended to check the availability & book your tour at least 3 days in advance.

The date I want to book the tour is blocked out/ not available?

If your preferred date is blocked out or you do not find it in the calendar, do not hesitate to reach out to us, we may be able to offer you an alternative.

Are tours available all year round?

At the moment, we operate only during the Summer Season (April to October). Some tours are also available in November.(Private Tours).

How do I choose the right tour for me?

We believe that nowadays travellers are very experienced and truly know what type of activities they prefer. All our tour descriptions are very informative and detailed so that it is easy to understand if the activity suites your taste and interests. You should check if the tour has a pick up from your resort, if the tour provides enough free time on sights, if the tour has a tour guide, if there are any additional expenses that are not included in the price of the tour (food, tickets), what language is the tour (mostly for non-English speakers), are there swimming stops, and so on. We want our customers to be well informed about the service/ product they are about to purchase.
If shared group tours seem not to suit any of your preferences, we also offer set and tailored private tours. Make sure to check them out!

I’m having problems with online booking. Are there any other options?

Yes, of course! You can email or message us, and we will provide you with alternative booking/ payment options.

How do I know that my tour is booked?
