“…but Lindos and Rhodes in one day? Yes, that’s a deal!”
Enjoy exploring Lindos Village and Rhodes Medieval Town on this full-day guided group tour. This is the best way to visit both the most important sites of Rhodes island in one day with a knowledgeable local tour guide. You will learn about ancient city-states, see the medieval heritage sites, listen about local traditions and get to know interesting facts about Rhodes island.
The tour will start with a nice scenic drive along the East Coast, passing through Kallithea and Faliraki resorts, known as Rhodes’ Riviera. On the way to Lindos, your tour guide will introduce you to Rhodes Island and its history, most important facts and events, tell you about Greek traditions. Also, see small villages, valleys, resorts, olive & lemon-tree groves, and the highest mountain – Attaviros.
Upon your arrival to Lindos, you will see one of the most impressive sites on Rhodes island! Lindos is a small white village surrounded by the blue Mediterranean Sea and sits at the footstep of the 116m high rock on which the Ancient Acropolis is situated.
Now, follow your guide through the narrow streets, as you will learn about the evolution and growth of this great DORIAN-founded Ancient city-state, Athena’s sanctuary, the influence of crusaders, Byzantine heritage, the Cycladic architecture, the wealthy Lindian sea merchants and their mansions. After the guided walk, you will have some free time to continue exploring on your own, see some souvenirs or relax having a snack. The tour guide will provide directions and information.
A relaxing 1-hour drive will be the best way to renew your energy and get ready for another discovery—RHODES MEDIEVAL TOWN, the capital of Rhodes Island, UNESCO site. We will also pass by the highest spot of Rhodes town for a memorable view!
You will enter the Medieval town through one of the most spectacular gates – the D’Amboise Gate. You will understand how the fortification was planned and constructed by the Knights of St. John, learn about the coats of arms, pass by the main administrative buildings like the Knights’ Headquarters, the Hospital, the Commercial Court, stroll through little streets full with stylish boutiques and galleries.
The tour concludes at the heart of Rhodes Medieval town! From there you can continue sightseeing on your own, have an ice-cream and people-watch from one of the many cafes before our driver takes you back to your accommodation.
You can also choose to continue your evening in Rhodes town with dinner and return to the hotel on your own/ or walk to your cruise ship right after the guided tour (it is only 5-7 min walking distance)!

The one element that made this particular tour amazing rather than just good was Mariana our exceptional guide. Mariana teaches classical Greek literature at Rhodes university and her academic background was evident from the moment that she started to share her knowledge of Greek and Island history with the group. Far from dry or dusty, Mariana has an active sense of humour and sharp, sometimes acerbic wit – so she really is entertaining as well as informative. The tour started with a coach ride to Lindos and Mariana narrated the history of Lindos to the group as we travelled so that ounce we arrived at the stunning ancient town which is perched on the edge of a steep promontory over looking a pretty bay, we already knew quite a lot about the town. It was a very busy place with many tourists but this rather gave the town a happy...Ian N
This trip is very worthwhile doing. You get the right amount of time at Lindos and Rhodes and the cost is reasonable. The guide (Marianna in our case) was very knowledgeable. The coach was modern with air conditioning and we were picked up at our hotel. Excellent tour – would wholeheartedly recommendsammytheshammy2012
Amazing history, beautiful sites and all brought to life by the amazing Mariane! Excellent trip. We thoroughly enjoyed, including our 14 year old!Jolizshe
Zeer goede begeleiding gehad van een vriendelijke gids. De moeite waard om deze stad bij gelegenheid te bezoeken.gerard1753
My husband, 18 yr old son and I booked this tour so we would understand more of the historical facts about both these amazing towns and we weren’t disappointed. Our guide Marianna was brilliant! Full of enthusiasm, wit and knowledge, she really made the tour. We did have a couple of young child in the tour which were well behaved but I wouldn’t recommend you take small children as it’s very hot and there is lots of walking in both Lindos and Rhodes old town. Lindos – absolutely beautiful and very hot. We did walk up to the Acropolis and it’s a definite if you can but please don’t we tempted by the donkey rides, I really felt for the poor animals, use your own will power and feet it’s much more rewarding and the views all the way up and from the top are totally breathtaking. We didn’t eat...MrsClean18
Nice AC bus met us on time at the meet point. Guide (Marieanne) was extremly knowledgeable/helpful and friendly. George the drive was also very accomodating. Fine day out enjoyed by my family.Bab B
Guide knew her stuff. Beautiful tour of Lindos and Rhodes. I’d advise to pay and do the tour of the palace of the grand masters €6 each. Truly stunning and full of historyJaskaren S
ManosGoing tour company’s full-day trip is the perfect introduction to the island and old town. They pick-up/drop-off at your hotel, which is a special treat, that most companies don’t offer. While they use a bus, it is not a large one, and holds about 25 maximum (17 on our tour), which enhances the experience, making you feel more comfortable. Our guide was superb – friendly, knowledgeable, spoke excellent English. While the portion of the tour that covers the Old Town does not go in the building (Grand Master’s Palace for example), it gives a very good overview and explanation of what life was like when the Templars were there. We had gone into the various building the previous day, and I was a little concerned about visiting again; but, the two really complemented one another. One final note about the quality of this tour company. My wife left her prescription...DennyS510
Had a wonderful tour of Lindos and Rhodes Old town on this very comfortable small tour consisting of 9 people. Our driver Emmanuel (?), was friendly, courteous and an excellent driver, Our guide, Marianna was so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour, she really brought to life the history of both Lindos and Rhodes Town plus an insight into all the villages we passed en route. Would definitely book with ManosGoing again, very professional and friendly. Thank you Marianna and Emmanuel for making the day so good. Jullian and Iainjulian_asgaralli 21 Μαϊ 2019
We had a really great time on this tour. The schedule was very well thought out, perfect balance of information and free time. In Swedish this would be called very lagom! Wonderful tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the island, who actually teaches a university class on this very topic. Clear and interesting delivery. Would recommend to anyone. A must. Thank you, and love from Sweden!Mariaaoe
