Wonderful locations toured with excellent tour company Manosgoing. The top hotels in Rhodes also recommend the Manosgoing tour company and for good reason. Kristina went out of her way to ensure everyone had a great time. A very big thankyou to Kristina who made sure I received my phone back after leaving it in a taxi- phew...!) Kallithea Springs is both beautiful and relaxing. Lindos- as well as acropolis (500 steps or hire a donkey) has amazing church with beautiful frescoes. By wandering past all the tourist shops I was able to take stunning photos of the town without the hordes of tourists.

Driver was punctual and very pleasant. Our guide Katerina was amazing, so informative she had me captivated with her knowledge. A fabulous day trip we would definitely recommend the scenery was spectacular. Overall a fabulous experience.
