    Private Island Taxi Tour
    Prior to leaving the UK we looked online for a Company that could offer us a bespoke tour of the Island of Rhodes . We came across ” Rhodes Taxi Tours ” and excellent communications followed together with a list of suggestions from them of places we might like to consider . We booked a tour together with our choosen date and received confirmation from them but no requirement for a deposit as payment ( for the quoted sum ) would be made to the driver at the end of the tour .
    On the day prior to our trip I received an e-mail confirming our booking and advising us that our driver would pick us up in our hotels reception the following day at 08.30 .
    The following morning our driver arrived spot on time in a lovely airconditioned mercedes and we discussed and altered our itinerary slightly as we had already visited some of the locations . Our driver Nikos Zachariadis was brilliant , nothing was too much trouble and we visited all of the places we had hoped to see .He came up with a load of brilliant suggestions including dropping us at the top of the valley of the butterflies and meeting us at the bottom . This was repeated in Lindos where access into the old town is tricky to say the least !
    At the end of the day ( again at our request ) we visited a local Greek Taverna overlooking the sea where we had an amazing sea food meal and there was Nikos waiting to return us to our hotel .
    A brilliant day and with the cool oasis of the car between all of our stops .
    Well done Nikos and Rhodes Taxi Tours !!

    Our day spent with Nikos was filled with memories from start to finish. We started in old town and finished in Lindos with a climb of the Acropolis. To end the tour we stopped for a Greek lunch at a wonderful restaurant with magnificent views. We selected our fish to be cooked and finished with a delicious fruit and dessert platter. We would highly recommend Rhodes Taxi Tours for anyone looking for a wonderful guided tour of Rhodes.

    My husband and I were in Rhodes for only a few days and wanted to see the highlights of the island. We found Rhodes Taxi Tour online, and Elli was very helpful in booking a tour for the following day. We knew it was short notice and didn’t expect to be able to schedule anything, but Elli worked out the details and made it happen. Our driver, Dominic was wonderful! He was shared with us not only the history of the island but the culture and current events as well. He was professional and enjoyable to talk with as he tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted to see and do. Dominic also secured a taxi to the airport for the following morning for us. My husband and I are both so happy we chose to do a private tour of Rhodes and would highly recommend!!

    Excellent tour!
    We visited the port of Rhodes as a stop on our cruise and had booked a full day tour with Rhodes Taxi. We had the pleasure of having George who took us to see the highlights of the island. We started in Old Town where he was able to drive us through the streets before they closed them to cars at 9 am. We stopped at a harbor then the Acropolis, where George provided us with the history of both. On our way to Lindos, we stopped at a pottery factory where we had a demonstration of a vase made the old fashioned way with a wheel motored by foot. Off to Lindos for a panoramic view and a visit to the old town. We walked up to visit the Acropolis. It was a little rushed as we only had 1 hour to climb up and visit but it was well worth the climb. We then went to a small fishing village where we had a delicious lunch by the water before returning back to Rhodes. We definitely recommend this tour and if we return, we would book with George again. He was very friendly and knowledgeable!
