Throughout our holiday, my girlfriend and I booked several tours and excursions across Rhodes from the office in Ixia, which was all amazing experiences. Thank you Yoita for your kind service. The bus picks you up at your hotel and drops you off at the same spot, which was very convenient.
Our first trip was the bay-to-bay excursion which was a boat trip where we had four stops where we could swim. Very beautiful locations! Lunch was included as well in the trip. The time allocated for each stop was also sufficient.
The second trip was to Lindos by bus where we experienced the acropolis and walked through the city. Great and beautiful scenery from the top of the acropolis.
The third trip was the island tour where we visited the Butterfly Valley, Ancient Kamiros, Siana Village, and other stops as well where we also had the option to taste local products (sundried tomatoes, olive oil, wine, and souma). The trip included lunch, which was very delicious and had a vegetarian option. For some of the stops, we wished we had some more time to walk around and that the guide spent less time talking about all the places. The trip was a full-day tour and took approximately 9 hours in total.
The fourth trip was to Chalki island. Very beautiful island and breathtaking scenery. We had 6 hours to explore the island which was plenty of time. We also spent time a the local beach which was very beautiful as well.
Overall, we can only recommend booking the excursions at Holidays Essential as we wouldn't have been able to do the tours ourselves. Friendly staff, great service, and very affordable prices.
