Reviewed 2 June 2013

We booked George S. (www.rhodeswonder.com) for a private tour of Rhodes, and were very happy with this choice. He met us at embarkation from our cruise ship in a very comfortable air-conditioned car, and drove us to Lindos and other island destinations. On the way to Lindos, he suggested a brief stop at a seemingly private beach club just for the beauty of it (and it was!) It was early in the day and I think we went in some back entrance without seeing anyone! Just a little 15 minute bonus. Otherwise he made sure we got to all the outer island spots outside of Rhodes old town that we wished to see and was always waiting patiently for us when we were done at each location. He is very friendly and upbeat and knows the island well. He does not accompany you INTO the sites as a guide (and we did not expect him to do so), so if you expect that you should discuss your needs with him. But if you just want someone trustworthy and pleasant to make your own explorations possible, George is your man!

Sunny and fun, Rhodes has great shopping, history, architecture, food and relaxation. This small island has changed rulers so many times, that it's people take life as it comes. They are very welcoming and we felt like guest rather than tourists. Great place for photographs too.

My wife and I visited Turkey and Greece for the first time this November and it was also our first cruise. Not knowing the ropes, we procrastinated about setting up the excursions that the cruise line offer and by the time we did, the good ones in Ephesus and Pargamum were full! We were crushed!

I got online to try to find excursions that might be available those days through another cruise line or someone and discovered several great tour sites that offer individual tours for less than the cruise line was offering. I ended up canceling all the other excursions we had set up with the cruise line to other sites and easily found local individual tours. What a blessing!

For Rhodes I decide to go with George--Rhodes Taxi through Rhodeswonder.com. We were to have our own Mercedes taxi and driver. We had the freedom to set our own agenda or follow one they would lay out for us. We could have hired a license guide to go with us but to be honest our driver was from Rhodes and was able to tell us everything. The only think he couldn’t do was go into the sites which really wasn’t necessary.

The day before we were to dock in Rhodes, George contacted me to tell me that there would be a nation wide taxi strike but he was providing us with a minibus for no extra charge - for just the two of us!

We found our guide waiting on us with a sign with our name on it as we disembarked. Our guide was named Stavros Viachidis. He was a delightful young man who spoke fluent English and was very knowable and enthusiastic. We learned so much not only about Rhodes but also what life is like in Greece now. Stavros was very proud of Rhodes - as he should be. It was our favorite excursion. It's just neat to be able to ask question after question without think you are taking up the driver's time or interrupting anyone else. It was very interesting to learn all about the harvesting, processing, and marketing of olive oil.

Rhodes old town is beautiful and so is Lindos. I highly recommend you visit and you can’t go wrong booking through George!

Our short visit in Rhodes was made memorable by George. He was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and I would recommend him to anyone visiting here.

Rhodes Wonder is the best way to see Rhodes in comfort. July and August are very hot months and walking around town and taking a bus did not seem good options at that time. I emailed George on the website and he called quickly the same day and set up my tour for the next day. Was picked up by Yanni and taken around Rhodes Town, the Acropolis of Rhodes, Lindos, and a nice lunch meal on a quiet beach with an excellent view and time for swimming. Unfortunately we spent too long at the beach and lunch and were not able to make it to our final destination of the Valley of the Butterflies, but Yanni set it up so that he would pick us up the next day to go see the Valley of the Butterflies and transfer to the airport as well only for the price of the transfer to the Airport.
Yanni was very knowledgeable about the Rhodes and was eager to show us other places that we were interested in. Everything he said was right on the money. The best thing about the tour was that there is a list of things to do for the day like all other tours but you can modify it with side trips and they aren't pushy about having to go to the next stop like on bus tours where you feel like you are herded like animals in order to make their time limits. On this tour you have a lot of freedom to make the tour your own. Plus, it's all from the comfort from a Mercedes Benz (all taxis are Mercedes). What could be better.

It's a little pricey but definitely worth it if you are only in Rhodes for a limited time.
