The archeological ruins are amazing and so are the breathtaking views once you reach the top. Some of the most beautiful cliffs I have ever seen! Visited August 2013.

Sadly our car hire ended up taking a bit of time otherwise we would have loved to have arrived in the early morning - it was hot, hot, hot under the baking sun! This place is incredible and well worth a wander around, I love imagining what life would have been like in the market, the houses/shops so visible along... More

This was my second visit here and I am dreaming of going back. Incredible ancient place with lots to see. Arrive early before the crowds and the hot sun so you can appreciate everything. I simply can`t wait until it is further revealed... Unmissable with picturesque views. Not sure if it is great for buggies but is great history lesson... More

This is an interesting and well worth while place to visit. Close your eyes and use your imagination as to what this was like all those years ago. A fabulous place to visit. Thank you

Many other reviewers explain the nature of this site, so I will simply comment on a few practical matters. The bus trip from Rhodes Town takes a little over an hour and costs 5 Euros each way. It leaves from the west side bus terminal - the northern of the two terminals on the west side of the New Market... More

Not much to see here in Ancient Kamiros, literally just some rocks. Barely any information about it. Wouldn't have been so bad if it was free but we paid the same to get into Lindos Acropolis which was far more interesting and enjoyable!

You pay 6 euros each and you get a small map of the area to explore but not much else. Just keep wondering about and you do get a sense of just how big this place was and the views are wonderful. There were "guides" about but not really for your benefit they are there to tell you where you... More

A pretty big site with lots to see. We enjoyed this but as we like ancient sites it just seemed like a circular tour. It really needed more than 45 mins to do it justice but we didn't hire a car and the cost of a taxi there would gave been prohibitive.

Reasonable priced, well signed with information about the site and a good place to take photos. Car park ok but watch out for busses as its seems they just block the car park!!!
