“RHODOS - WELL WORTH THE EFFORT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went on this day trip with my sister, her husband and two kids. Thank goodness my Brother-in-Law suggested that we go with them. I was blown away by the beauty of Rhodes and transported back to the days of ancient Greece. Rhodes is truly a wonderful place and has lots to offer the visitor.
Wonderful views from the top of ancient monuments across Rhodes bay to where the Colossus of Rhodes was once said to span the harbour and now sees huge cruise liners tie up for a day ot two. Narrow cobbled street where people still live in homes that must be very small indeed. Friendly faces, fantastic shops and brilliant restaurants serving delicious food for every taste.
I could live here quite easily.
The Knights Templar Museum is a must and the leather goods are excellent quality but dearer than similar items in Marmaris shops.

“lovely day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We booked this for a day trip from Marmaris and it only takes about an hour to get there. Once there you get the option to go on a bus tour for about an hour. You have plenty of time to wonder in and out the shop, get something for your lunch, plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from or go to the beach.
As you are used to Marmaris prices it is more expensive while there.

“quick visit nice and easy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

it was quick and easy way to spend a day and catamaran is really fast and comfortable you can take push chairs and everything inside, you dont need to change for euros if you buy excursion offered on catamaran meaning you pay in liras on the boat itself, after boat ride join bus for tour .. after hour leave the bus and walking tour of castle for 30 mins and then you are free to explore and go to beach which is very close to where your boat is anchored....
