Very interesting to see the old tree. We went without a guide, but I would probably recommend going with a guide in order to learn about the tree and its history, as there is no information available at the site; no plaques with info in English etc.

Historic but really not much to capture your interest or attention. But since it is not out-of-the-way, go ahead and take it in, and move on to more interesting historic sites in Kos, of which there are many to choose.

Nice to see, but the graffiti and hawkers kind of spoil the atmosphere. The history is cool mind you.

Hippocrates is one of my hero’s as a visionary with insight far beyond his time. However, the sight is disappointing - it’s simply a very old tree surrounded by an ugly metal structure (to protect) surrounded by jewellery stalls - little history of the man to be found here. The adjoining ruins across the bridge have been closed to the public for the past couple of years - earthquake damage.

Disappointing....but you make up your own mind the metalwork supporting it blocks most of the overall view
