Description

With this private tour, visit the most popular Rhodes village and the most famous archaeological sight of the Island and experience one of the must things to do at your own pace and in the most convenient way. Meet also the long Rhodian tradition of ceramics by one of the Island craftsmen.

Our tour begins at about 09:30am when we pick you up from your hotel with our air-conditioned vehicle. On our way to Lindos, admire the east coastal side and stop for a panoramic photo with the imposing Lindos rock as your photo background, one of the most photographed scenes in Greece.

About 40 minutes later, you arrive at Lindos. You walk up the hill for about 12 minutes to marvel at the magnificent Acropolis of Lindos; standing for centuries on the top of an imposing rock, proudly overlooking the Aegean sea. On the first level you can see more recent buildings like the 1317 Castle of the Knights of St John and a Greek orthodox church. On the second level to the south you can marvel at the remains of the 300 BC Doric Temple of Athena Lindia.

Take the way down the slope and enjoy a leisurely stroll around the whitewashed labyrinth of little alleyways and cubic houses sprawling down the hillside under the Acropolis. Visit other monuments of Lindos such as the Ancient theatre or the Virgin Mary church in the centre of the village or just do window-shopping wandering around the cute charming shops.

Then, we take the car and drive for twenty minutes approx. It's time to make a little history of your own by embracing the long yet dying tradition of ceramics, only a handfull of families still produce on the Island.Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the owner, who will guide you through the techniques used to craft his pieces and talk about the storied history of Rhodian ceramics, including the famous Pythagoras cup. After enjoying an artful pottery demonstration by one of the expert artisans, you may decide to dirty your hands on the pottery wheel or hand paint yourselves. Toast your achievement with Greek ouzo and snack on traditional meze (such as olives and cheese).

The tour comes to an end and you get bact at the car to return to the hotel.

Amazing tour to Lindos Acropolis and with a great guide, Vasilis. Highly recommend booking tours with this company. Great morning well spent. If you do the Acropolis tour, make sure you wear sensiible shoes as it can be a bit slippery. Also make sure you have sun cream as it can be extremely hot.
