Excellent Tour and Amazing Guide

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...

Excellent tour

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 recommend

Great tour!

Amazing history, beautiful sites and all brought to life by the amazing Mariane! Excellent trip. We thoroughly enjoyed, including our 14 year old!

Daguitstap met gids

Zeer goede begeleiding gehad van een vriendelijke gids. De moeite waard om deze stad bij gelegenheid te bezoeken.

Really good guides tour

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...

Lovely day out

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.

Very informative tour

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 history

Great tour; what a value for the money!

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...

Countryside tour

We booked two tours with this company, the transfer to Lindos, and a private tour of the countryside with Manos himself. The latter was great value at 50 euros per person, for six people, for a whole day. It cost pretty much the same as a Tui excursion, but we got to decide how long we spent in each location, and as a result got to see lots more of the island. We went up into the mountains, saw all the peacocks, and visited two beautiful ruined castles. We chose to cut the tour a bit short due to two of the group feeling travel sick, but still felt we’d had a great day sightseeing. Booking was easy with good communication. I’d recommend this company as a really good alternative to Tui excursions.

Excellent and Fun Tour

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 Iain

Brilliant guided tour

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!
