The Basics

The Acropolis of Rhodes is one of the most accessible ancient sites on the island. Alongside the Temple of Apollo, other notable ruins include the remnants of an 800-capacity Roman odeon and traces of a 3rd-century BC stadium. Most guided tours of Rhodes include a visit to the acropolis. These include half-day tours to Rhodes’ eastern side and full-day trips around the island, which typically stop at the 4,000-year-old Acropolis of Lindos as well.

Perfect tour between two flights
We were looking for a tour on Rhodes in between two flights. We had 5 hours and (for us) almost unbearably hot weather. Found this tour - everything was perfect! In time pick up, very nice and flexible driver and guide Andreas, comfortable car, great spots to see. Would absolutely recommend!

RHODES BEST INTRODUCTION - FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS - HALF DAY - Up to 4 People
Andrew picked us up at the port and showed us around Rhodes in a clean air conditioned car. He was full of knowledge and interesting stories. One of the best tour guides we have ever had. Two of us went on another excursion and he came back 3 hours later to pick us up. Wonderful day for all 4 of us.

Mike provided us with an excellent private tour for 4. He has lived there his entire life and he timed everything perfectly with the best routes, the best views and places to stop. He also took us to a local pottery shop and we had a waterfront lunch at Haraki Bay Hotel. The view there was gorgeous. We were able to explore the entire island. I would highly recommend Mike. You will not be disappointed.

Private tour of Rhodes landmarks with beach time
Would absolutely book this tour again or any tour through this company! We loved everything about it. We were picked up right outside of where our cruise ship was docked and had a great day! Great beaches, great food, great views… it was superb. Booking this tour is a no brainer!

The driver was very nice, knowledgeable and kind. The village of Lindos was beautiful. Wish there was more time there. We decided to go to The Temple of Athena and we feel we had to rush back. We visited a ceramic shop, lovely place. Very pricey though. Overall all a great trip and would recommend

Small city sightseeing tour, not a lot of history, and the bus frequency is every hour. So is not for hop on hop off, but to do the whole ride and hop off

BEST of RHODES & LINDOS - HALF DAY GUIDED PRIVATE GROUP TOUR - up to 19 people
Our guide Constantina (Tina, as she asked us to call her) was so kind and generous with her knowledge of her home. She and our driver picked us up right at the port from our cruise ship for a tour that showed us portions of Rhodes on our way to Lindos to see the beautiful town and Acropolis. It's a long journey, but Tina used the time to tell us everything about Rhodes and what we were going to see. She also took us to a great store and had recommendations for lunch when they dropped us off in Rhodes' Old Town later in the day. We loved this tour so much.

BEST OF LINDOS & RHODES - PRIVATE TOUR - SHORE EXCURSION - HALF DAY - 4 People
One of the best tours I have had. It was a private tour.... our driver cum guide Manolas was such a gracious and knowledgable person. Never felt rushed during the four and half hours that Manolas took us around. Infact towards the end when I was having a chat with Manolas about Rhodes and hollywood, inevitably Anthony Quinn's name came up and without asking for it, Manolas took us to the spot on the shore that was gifted to Mr Quinn for being an ambassador to these islands. I thought that was a great gesture from him!

Shore Excursion Rhodes, Acropolis of Lindos, Medieval Town, Filerimos Hill
John was an amazing tour guide! We toured the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes and the museum, strolled the Street of Knights. It was amazing! We climbed to the top of the Acropolis of Lindos. The view was breathtaking and the Temple was amazing! Walking through the village of Lindos was very nice. The Filerimos Monastery was impressive. The views were amazing and I was surprised to see so many peacocks! John was so friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour!

When to Get There

While the grounds are open 24 hours a day, the best time to visit the acropolis is around sunset, when the views across the city and sea from the Temple of Pythian Apollo are often spectacular. However, this is also the busiest time—consider a sunrise visit to get the place a little more to yourself.
