It was basically just a transfer service to the destination we wanted to go see. We got to the meeting place on time and couldn’t find our bus, after some time looking for it and wondering around, my husband called the number on our confirmation email. We got an answer right away, that bus was coming it was just running behind. So I would say it was just what we needed, great price, good customer service. My advice is to keep all your info and phone numbers with you. Overall great transfer.

Amazing crew, fantastic trip, visiting some beautiful places. Must emphasise the crew really made our trip, they were all so fabulous. The food was delish, bays we visited outstanding, time for snorkelling, watermelon, swimming and exploring, would definitely recommend this trip

Really good coach trip! Just what I wanted, a coach to transfer us to Lindos and back! Picked up from hotel and dropped off back there too which was perfect! Even got a free leaflet with map!

Very nice roundtrip, the guide (Karl-Heinz) was super knowledgable about the history of Rhodos, very interesting to learn so much about the history of the island

Loved seven springs a lot. Much time is allotted to Lindos visiting, for me was too much, but that's only my opinion. A bit hard to find the bus on big parkings.
