Viking Royal sailing adventure + Island tour

We had a fantastic set of trips booked from manos going. Hassle free from booking at reception to a rep taking payment in advance giving us a run down of the days we booked. We would firstly like to thank all the staff/family on the Viking Royal they were so welcoming and friendly. The trip was so relaxing plus fun got to swim in a cave and snorkel had lunch and drink provided. A massive bonus for us was a small crowd on the boat and relaxing music unlike other packed boats and boom boom music. The captain was very knowledgeable been sailing since 1987 you’re in safe hands. He often sat with us talking away with his wife and daughter, daughters partner and nephew made it feel very personal loved it. Please thank them for us and know that they are doing a stella job for Manos going. Island...

Amazing Day Out

We were picked up from our hotel by our very friendly and informative guide for the day, Manos. The mini bus was clean and well air conditioned, and took us to some absolutely beautiful stops across the island with plenty of time at each stop to take the views in and get photographs. There was also the opportunity to taste some delicious local honey, wines and olive oil; as well as some traditional Greek dishes before our visit to Kritinia Castle. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and recommend the experience to anyone visiting Rhodes! Thank you! Freya & Ellis.

Fantastic

Well done Manos. This is great value and a wonderful trip. The recommended restaurant for lunch was excellent. Never tasted such wonderful Mousaka all home made. The guide Marrianne was so knowledgable and provided very interesting information. If you want to do a tour when in Rhodes this is the one. The alternative could be a full sized coach with 60 passengers.

5 Stars isn't Enough !

We were recommended by friends to see Manos for our day trips having been on several on their visits to Rhodes. We went to see Manos & Gunta who were incredibly friendly and couldn’t do enough for us, offering us the Rhodes Island Tour on the Friday. Our guide, Marianne was incredibly knowledgeable and she claims she talks too much but she knew so much about the island, the history and the different parts – we were more than happy to listen! The driver was polite & friendly too doing well to navigate the narrow roads up the mountain! The tour itself stopped at various points of interest; an abandoned village, a beautiful fountain, hunters lodge, vineyard, mountain village for lunch and a stunning hilltop castle with panoramic views across the islands. My favourite part of the tour was definitely the local wine, honey and olive oil tasting midway through...
