Excursion Details:

Are you keen on exploring Rhodes in your own terms ad pace? Then our private tours are the right fit for you! The West Coast of Rhodes can reveal beautiful scenery, as well as some important sights such as ancient Ialyssos on Filerimos Hill, ancient Kamiros city, and Kritinia’s castle. And we promise this isn’t just an exhausting tour! You will have leisure time to relax in a seaside or a mountain village tavern before heading back to your hotel. Remember: this is YOUR Private tour, and you decide everything from sightseeing to dining priorities and pace.

 

On this full-day private tour you will explore three of the most historical sights of Rhodes. Relax in one of our Mercedes VIP minibuses, while we drive you through the countryside with the marvelous landscape of the West coast passing right out your window.

Filerimos view

Start your day with a drive up the spectacular Filerimos Hill, once home to the oldest ancient city-state of the Island called Ialyssos. The numerous peacocks naturally residing in the area will be sure to welcome you in the area. You can enjoy a short walk along a cobbled path leading to an imposing high cross on the top of the hill where you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view. Before you return to your bus, you also have the option to visit the Byzantine Monastery and buy the unique 7 Herbs Liquor made with the monks’ secret recipe.

Ancient Kamiros

We will be following the scenic West coast route that connects some of the most impressive sights; the ancient city of Kamiros and Kritinia’s castle. Kamiros is one of the best-preserved classical Greek cities. Wander through the streets and try picturing what life in Rhodes must have been like in this ancient Doric settlement from the late Bronze Age until approximately 142 BC.

Kritinia

Then, explore Kritinia’s Castle, founded by the Knights during the 14th century and let yourself be amazed by the superb view from above the west coast. The fortress is often called “Castello” as it was the largest of the Knights’ fortresses along the island’s west coast. It dominates the western passage and the channel of Halki.

Finally, depending on the season or your preferences, you can choose to relax at a seaside tavern. There is an opportunity to have a refreshing swim and delicious seafood. Alternatively, you can drive to the nearby mountain village to taste the local produce and traditional food.

This will be an active and memorable day and your driver will be sure to recommend the best options for you; we will provide you with photo opportunities, scenic routes and our Rhodes map!

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.
