RhodeTrip is a team of creative and enthusiastic professionals who are born, raised and live on the beautiful island of Rhodes.
Our philosophy is based on the strong belief that when it comes to holidays there is no such thing as the local knowledge!
Therefore, our mission is to make our guests see Rhodes through our eyes…the local eyes!
Who said that Rhodes is all about cosmopolitan resorts and sunny beaches?
It is also a hiking paradise offering so many places both to the experienced hiker and to the casual walker.
The size of the island is ideal for day walks since you can go anywhere you like on the island using our comfy van, walk for a couple of hours (or more depending on the route), have your drink or meal in a tavern with homemade food in a small traditional village and get back to your hotel within the day.
Whether you stay downtown / northern Rhodes or in the south side, we can take you to the most beautiful walk paths of the island. Several routes pass by small mountain villages untouched by tourism where we stop, meet the locals and order drink/brunch/meal in the tavern, an experience that takes you back in time!
