Choose your preferred start time, and meet your driver and guide at your Rhodes hotel or the cruise port. Begin with a walk through the medieval Old Town, a remarkably preserved area that's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the street of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and the imposing Palace of the Grand Masters, a 14th-century citadel restored in 1939 during the Italian occupation.
Envision one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World at the old harbor entrance, where the monumental Colossus of Rhodes once stood. Continue driving up to the Acropolis of Rhodes to take in panoramic views and visit the ancient ruins of the Temple of Apollo and a Greek stadium and amphitheater.
From here, take a scenic drive along the island’s eastern coast through small villages and olive groves to the picturesque town of Lindos. Walk through the main town square and then either climb or ride a donkey up nearly 300 steps to the Lindos Acropolis. If you like, enjoy leisure time for lunch (own expense) or swimming on the nearby beach.
On the return drive, follow a coastal road for more sea views and a stop at the beautiful sandy beach of Faliraki. The private tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel, the cruise port, or the gates of Old Town if you'd like to continue exploring independently.
Please note that your tour guide cannot accompany you into the archaeological sites or museums.
