What To Expect

On this day of discovery, you'll explore the rustic villages of inland Rhodes and sample some of the island's favourite dishes. Pretty Orthodox churches, an olive oil mill, a winery in Embona and a typical local lunch are on the menu in this adults-only tour. Fotini, one of our local guides, says, 'I was born and raised in Rhodes, so I am thrilled to be showing the island's hidden gems, revealing its authentic and traditional identity, and the customs that we still keep today.'The fun starts in Asklipio, a charming hillside village of whitewashed homes built around an ancient castle and an 11th-century stone church. Admission to the church is included, helping to support its upkeep. Next up is Siana, where you'll get a snapshot of Rhodian life in the rugged hills away from the coast. After you've tried some locally pressed olive oil at a nearby mill, it's time for a wine tasting in Embona.And then we are off to Apollona for lunch made from locally sourced produce in a family-run taverna, which uses no plastics. Even the water served comes from a local well. There's a walking tour of the village afterwards. In the afternoon, there's a pit stop for coffee in Profitis Ilias en route to the dinky and frescoed Byzantine chapel of Agios Nikolaos in Fountoukli. A day that'll satisfy both your cultural curiosity and taste buds.
