Manos is an excellent company. They arrange everything for you and meet you with the boat tickets, saving you a lot of hassle. You then have the day to yourself. Panomitis Monastery is beautiful andI lit candles. Symi itself is great. By bots Venetian style Harbour with lots of good restaurants and tourist shops. I explored Symi itself- lots of windy lanes and reached as high up as a farm. Saw outside of a beautiful local church. Also saw the folk museum. Warning- if you explore further afield from harbour it's very easy to get lost. Local transport is sparse at best and taxi drivers do not always answer their phones. WiFi reception can be weak so please test first before relying on Google maps. Allow yourself plenty of time to get back to the boat. The locals are friendly and will do their best to help you. However please do not expect them all to speak English- after all you are on a Greek island. (p.s. I got lost but mercifully did make it back to the boat in time).

This tour was one of the highlights of my time in Greece. I booked during the off-season and ended up being the only participant! My guide was knowledgeable and very enthusiastic to share his knowledge with me. The tour was perfect-- getting to see all the major sites in Rhodes! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the sites!

Best day of our holidays! The crew was super fun and we will definitely do it again if we come to Rhodes this summer

Got there in just an hour, had 3 hours of free time and a swim stop in St George’s Bay! Definitely worth the price!

The best sunset cruise we have been on, from the music to the drinks, everything was super!
