Start your excursion at a time to suit your schedule, and then leave your Rhodes hotel by minivan with your private guide. Travel by air-conditioned minivan along the island’s east coast and gaze out of the window at some of Rhodes’ most beautiful beaches. Pass through several sleepy villages, and finally stop in Lindos, the island’s famous ancient village.
Lindos’ pretty streets are fringed by the sugar cube houses found on many a Greek island, but it’s the magnificent 4,000-year-old acropolis that gives the village its star appeal. Work your way up Lindos’ gently winding cobblestone streets, and head inside the acropolis to explore with your guide. Have your camera ready to capture sights of the ruined Byzantine fortress and an Ancient Greek temple, and gaze down at the sweeping Bay of St Paul.
After discovering the delights of Lindos Acropolis (own expense), make your way back into the village to visit the Byzantine Church of the Ascension. Admire its stately interiors and stained glass windows, and then enjoy some free time to explore the village independently.
Return to your minivan, and travel back along the breathtaking coastal roads. Your private tour then finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Total disappointment. This is more about the local vendor Rhodian Tours than Viator but Viator picked them. We booked this private tour because it was totally customizable. We wanted to add time to the tour so we could add a stop at the town where our grandparents were from. We understood there would be an additional cost. Two weeks before the tour we sent a detailed e-mail explaining what we were looking to do and providing contact information. These were the instructions given by Viator on how to customize the tour. Day before the tour we had not heard from anyone. We had also previously called and left a message. We finally spoke with someone at the vendors office who had no clue. Later in the day we got a call back and were told when they would pick us up and that we could go to the town we wanted to go to. When our tour guide Maria showed up her and the van smelled like smoke and she had absolutely no plan for us. When asked about the email we sent her the response was I dont read my emails. They drove us to the town we wanted to visit but we basically just drove around aimlessly. She talked constantly as if we were not even there. We then went to Lindos and essentially ran through the town because she needed to get back for another tour. There was no ability to extend the tour because she had not taken that into consideration. Our tour was 4 hours with at least 2 hours just driving around. We paid for a private customizable tour. We got a ride from our hotel to Lindos and back. Would not use them again. On the other hand Viator booked us with another tour company- Rhode Trip- for a different tour and they were fabulous. Lesson learned- ask who the local vendor is and check them out.
Great guide - tremendous local knowledge and fantastic English. Went during offseason so not much happening at the village but there were no crowds and the acropolis was fascinating.
