About Vikings Sailing Tours
Since 1971 we have been organising tours on the “Vikings” sailing boat. Its captain was Stergos, a sailing pioneer who travelled thousands of miles on the coasts of the Greek island of Rhodes and the Dodecanese in general. Bearing witness to this story are our friends who repeatedly visit the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes for amazing sailing adventures. Captain Savvas Savvakis, son of Captain Stergos, has created his own legacy since 1987 with daily and weekly tours in the south-eastern Aegean. In 2015, the construction of the Royal Viking began. This sailing boat was a dream come true for Captain Savvas and on 14 August 2018, its maiden voyage took place on the east coast of Rhodes. With the 30-year experience of Captain Savvas and our enthusiastic crew, we extend a warm welcome and an invitation for you to travel on this traditional wooden sailing boat for a pleasant sailing exploration under the sun and the sea breeze of the Greek summer.

Chose to go with Vikings Sailing Tours because firstly the boat was a beautiful traditional sailing boat and secondly because the family were so friendly and not pushy on the harbour front. It was an excellent choice. Savvas's father built the boat (took him 15 years) and Savvas clearly cherishes it. His nephew Steve who does the crewing and serving was fun and full of banter. When we anchored in bays there were loads of other boats all blaring loud pop music - on board our boat Savvas had a chilled soundtrack (great old pop classics along the line of Brown eyed girl etc) - that perfectly suited the peacefulness of swooshing along under full sail. It was, all in all, just perfect.

As a classic boat lover for me it was obvious witch boattrip to choose walking around at Mandraki harbour Rhodes. The Royal Viking is by far the cosiest ship to rent. We had a splendid day on the sea with captain Savvas and his crew. A true sailor, not like all the other sailboats who do the most on enginepower. Perfect lunch with wine, beer or soda's . If you like to sail and have a great day this is the place to be!

Very relaxing and loads of swimming and snorkelling in different locations.Good food and plenty drink with Savvas the old and Savvas the young full of knowledge and good banter . Great sailing and so laid back with no rushing about .. 10/10, cheers Darrin and Alison ( from the colder UK Northumbrian coast )

I would definitely recommend this boat trip. We (a family of 8 aged between 14-73) asked if they did just half day tours sailig in the afternoon and they were very happy to accommodate us. We had the whole boat to ourselves which was just perfect. They gave us the choice of where to visit so we chose Anthony Quinn Bay which is just amazing! We were given a huge fruit platter and wine a d soft drinks. The captain and his daughter were very friendly and spoke excellent English. We had to wear face masks whilst in the harbour but once through we were able to take them off for the rest of the journey. I would highly recommend this!

Had the pleasure of going 9n this tour today. The staff were polite, pleasant and could not do enough for you. Stopped 3 times for swimming opportunities and photos. Lunch was supplied, cold meats and bread and salad. Was perfect for the trip as it wasn't too heavy on the stomach. Also get a glass of red or white wine. Pop is free throughout the tour as is bottled water. And a beer is only €1.50. Whole spent at see and met some really nice people. Highly recommended. Footnote, my photography doesn't do this justice.
