Tour: Rhodes Shore Excursion / East and West Coast of the Island, Rhodes, Dodekánisos, Greece
Date: Jan 27/20

Michael was on time, a fountain of information, sensitive to our needs and and had a nice sense of humor. We learned a lot about the long and complicated history of Rhodes and its relationship to ancient and modern Greece, the crusaders and Italy. We saw gorgeous seaviews and rocky hills of Rhodes. We stopped at a roadside restaurant popular with locals for a delicious lunch of greek salad and other greek starter specialities. Michael shared his own life story adding a personal touch. Very pleased.

Our group of four would each rate Michael a 6 or 7 or more if allowed! He is phenomenal! We had an exceptional day with him; learned so much about Rhodes and Greece. Also most famously we felt like royalty at the restaurant he recommended. Do not visit this area without Michael or a meal at Tsambikos!

We visited Rhodes in October 2019. Our guide Michael was excellent. He showed us so many wonderful sites around the island, and entertained us with his great knowledge of the island, it's history and culture. Not to mention he had some great stories to tell. Highlights of the journey included a stop at a pottery workshop, where he demonstrated the use of the greedy cup for us, and a magnificent lunch at a small local restaurant which satisfied our prime desire to experience the local people and cuisine.

Had a wonderful private tour with Michael. Michael took us to spots perfectly suited to both my and my husband's interests, and provided my husband with a surprise gift of a magazine depicting photos taken during WWII of places we were taken to (my husband is particularly interested in WWII). We were also concerned about documents which needed to be printed and Michael even took us to his friends to print, and transported us to airport on the last day! Highly recommend! Thank you Michael!

We truly enjoyed our tour with Michael. He showed us the city of Rhodes before taking us to Lindos. Along the way, he kept us entertained with stories of how life is on his island. He is a very humorous man. After lunch, Michael took us to a beautiful spot for lunch before returning us to the pier. He stopped to buy us a bottle of the local wine which we very much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him.

Book now! Once we met Michael, we were family. Knows the island so well and can suggest the perfect way to experience it. Suggestions were spot on, and we knew we were seeing everything as comfortable and efficiently as possible. Lunch suggestion - amazing. Time management - you can see twice as much as a bus trip. Genuinely friendly and funny we enjoyed his conversation. Completely customizable to your needs, for example, we mentioned that we have enjoyed the baklava, he took us to his favorite spot, wow

Michael is a terrific guide and host. We didn't know too much about Rhodes prior to our visit but when we left, it was definitely our favorite island of the 10 on our itinerary. Michael went out of his way to show us the non tourist side of Rhodes. Our introduction to a lovely small town church and the elderly lady who cares for it was the highlight of a month of travel. Lunch at Argos restaurant and the view superb! There is not enough room to describe just how much we loved this day.

We had a wonderful driving trip all around Rhodes with Michael, who was very helpful in replacing his brother on very short notice. He took us to some really beautiful locations high above Rhodes where we could see forever. Stopped at a local Pottery, watched a demo and of course bought some to bring home (they ship also) Had lunch over looking the sea, (beautiful views) finished at the old city for dessert and shopping. Thank You Michael for the wonderful tour or Rhodes.

Michael was a great tour guide. We told him we didn't like crowds and wanted to go where most of the tourist do not go. He listened to us and took us to many out of the way places that we thoroughly enjoyed. He was knowledgeable, professional, and great company. Chuck

Michael was an extremely entertaining, informative guide who told wonderful stories and gave a terrific tour of the island, its people and its charms - including the best restaurant we ate at. He was flexible and also introduced us to natives and towns we found charming and Jon-touristy! He's the best!

Michael did a GREAT job of showing us around Rhodes! He picked us up right at our ship, the Seabourn Odyssey! He showed us the Rhodes gates and windmills and then on the way to Lindos, he made several stops for beautiful views! Anthony Quinn Bay was breathtaking! He shared so many wonderful stories and knowledge about Rhodes. For lunch, he picked a place that now after the trip, we can say was our favorite restaurant on the trip - Argos - right on the water. The food and service were spectacular!

Great experience with Michael In addition to an abundance of history about the area, we tasted great wine, local olive oil and had a great visit with a local pottery business that created some very nice hand made pieces. We also had an "out of the way" lunch and were provided a table right on the water and the view was incredible, as well as the seafood! It was a very fulfilling day and we would recommend Michael for any tours in this area.

Michael was an excellent guide for our Rhodes Shore excursion. He is so personable and knowledgeable and took us on an amazing day of sightseeing and experiencing some people and places (coffee made the Greek way by a local lady was a highlight). We had a delicious lunch overlooking the beautiful blue water and had time to shop for some handmade pottery etc. This is a tour not to miss.

Michael did exactly what a GREAT GUIDE should do. He kept us ahead and away from the maddening crowds in Lindros and allowed us to see what we needed and wanted to see, while also showing us and allowing us to enjoy interaction with charming local people in small Greek towns. We also visited a wonderful sea-side restaurant and had time at the end of the trip to stroll through the port-side old city. Great Day, Great Trip, Great Guide.

Michael is a very fine man, and, as he says, " a small university" in his knowledge of Rhodes. He arranged for the old and extremely important synagogue with its amazing museum to be opened for us in the off-season. He then drove to Lindos, followed by a very authentic lunch in a local village's Greek taverna. Wefour had a wonderful day. Thank you! Vera

Michael was on time to meet us. One of our party of 3 wasn't feeling well at the time of pickup, but felt better 5 minutes after we'd left - Michael kindly returned to pick her up. We had a wonderful half day with him. He safely drove us from the Rhodes cruise pier to Lindos, Mt. Filerimos, an olive oil factory, and generally showed us around a good sized area of the island. He gave us great information and history all along the way and was a congenial host and companion. Highly recommend!
