The visit to the 9D cinema was fantastic and I and my family really enjoyed it. I recommend planning this experience at the beginning of your holiday, as it is a fun way to learn more about Rhodes and its history. The special effects were also very entertaining.

It is recommended to look at this history of Rhodes at the beginning of your Rhodes trip. You felt right in the middle of it instead of just there. The bonus Rhodes Race was also super awesome and a great way to end it.

I loved my tour - our tour guide took care about her group, bus driver was positive and bus itself was modern and comfortable) i liked the combination of history story telling and 9 D cinema. Definitely can recommend!
