No ropes or hand rails up very steep stairs, very dangerous even with fitness level

The Acropolis at Lindos is lovely and well worth the visit. More steps than expected (and no handrails on the climb up to the entrance which is only a problem for those of us with a fear of heights). Everything was "amazing" according to our guide.

Got on bus, off to Lindos at the top of the mountain. Steep walk, Then shops in town. Nice views, then back to Rhodes old town and the walled area where the Knights lived . Rhodes is located about even distance from Eygpt, Israel, and Athens geographically--hence its value in olden times. The Walled city is full of shops and cafes.I wish they had more on the Knights like we have seen in Malta.

A must-see! The Acropolis of Lindos overlooks the turquoise Aegean and St. Paul's Bay. Stunning. Our taxi was able to take us much closer to the entrance than the tour buses coyld. There was still a bit of walking to do but we appreciated the shortened walk.

We've seen prettier villages on this cruise, but we found a real gem of an unaltered home dating from the turn of the last century (featured in the National Geographic in 1958 and unchanged), no signage, no entry fee! We also had probably the best meal of the cruise at Kalypso. The acropolis looked like climb too far in the heat, without much to see of the old temple once you've got there. Rhodes old town is fascinating. Could spend many hours here - particularly off the main tourist drag.

I was really worried when we first got there due to the crowds, heat and the walk straight up. But it really wasn't bad. I enjoyed Lindos, then went on my own back down to visit the Church and have a granito. Needed it after such a hot walk up. Beautiful views from above. Very interesting tour.

Nearly three hundred hand-hewn stone steps of varying heights and levelness present a pretty big challenge (especially if you're slightly hung-over), but the view at the top was awe-inspiring!

Rhodes is beautiful, and I'd recommend going out of season, as we did. Falaraki was quiet! Spending time in the old town is a must: the Grand Masters' Palace can be toured independently. Our main excursion was to the Acropolis at Lindos - outstanding, and well worth a visit, though it is quite a walk uphill to get there from the parking area. The Panagia Church in the town is a must-see.

Already described in the "Rhodes Old Town" tour. Same tour took us through both places.

Hiked up to the acropolis of Lindos. The pathway up is not for the faint hearted! Its quite steep and hard work in the heat, but worth it for the fabulous views at the top. We called at a pottery on the way back to the ship. I also popped into the port town area, which has some nice shops & cafes.

Actually called "Panoramic Rhodes", this was a half-day excursion that afforded us incredible views of the island on our way to Lindos. However, we did not appreciate the stop at a jewelry store along the way. The store was along the road, not in a town or adjacent to other stores, so we felt victimized. Quality of the items sold was no better than in other locations on the trip.

Took the near full day excursion to Lindos as have heard its a must see. An hour on the bus passed quickly with our guide Tony who had us stop at a working pottery shop for a demo and toilet break.Lindos was worth seeing and we had free time after going up to the monuments at the top to explore the old town and go to the nearby beach for a swim.Both of which we did.Bus trip back left us an hour to explore Rhodes Town where the ship was docked next to. It was also worth seeing and no hastle or hard sell!

Crowded, lots of steps and town which uses its famous site to get tourists there. Lost most of its charm as a consequence

We arrived a day early in Rhodes because our ship prematurely skipped the entire day we had scheduled in Santorini. We were pretty upset about that, but when we arrived in Rhodes that evening we were actually pleased that we had the additional evening to spend there. The town is beautiful. We had an amazing dinner at Taverna Kostas, which was actually closed for the winter but the owner Elias welcomed us in with open arms. He literally treated us like family - by the end of the evening he called us his son and daughter. He was cooking dinner for his friends that night and emphatically invited us, random strangers, in to eat with them. The food was incredible and we will forever remember him and his hospitality. The next day we took a tour of Lindos. It was nice, a lot of walking, left with many beautiful pictures. The tour guides were great. We had enough time after the excursion to wander more around Rhodes. We had a delicious lunch of fresh fish at Pizanias Kyriakos Fish Restaurant, which was a recommendation of a shop owner who we had spoken with the previous night. Rhodes was a beautiful town and we loved our day there.

Our Cruise line disappointed us by cancelling many of our excursions (pre-booked) so we hired a taxi Driver, Mike, to take us around and he was more knowledgeable and cheaper and covered more area than what Costa Cruises charged and covered. Mike used to live in South Australia, so the conversation was continuous and very interesting. He was excellent.

Fantastic trip taking in the Acropolis at Lindos: a fantastic site. Our tour-guide was Daphne (also known as Scarlett) and she was both informative and fun.

Rhodes/Lindos- Lindos may have just been my favorite place. We did this excursion through the cruiseline and it was quite worth it. The guide was a young female, short, brown curly hair, and extremely intelligent. We went to Lindos, with a stop to a ceramics place. We bought the plate (oh yes we did.. for $100+), but seriously.. it was worth it. It's gorgeous, and a wonderful reminder of a great place! Bring lots of cash (as my wonderful husband thought a debit card only would get us far), because Lindos is wonderful, the Acropolis is an amazing sight, but the ATMs are prehistoric! All of the ATMS were down, and everyone (I mean everyone) was waiting in line at the bank for over an hour to get money until they were finally fixed. The tour guide was nice enough to help us into the bank (and be pushy with the locals) to get our money! The lunch on the beach was mediocre, stick with a shish kabob.. they know what they are doing! But, Lindos beach was amazing. The clearest (and saltiest) water I have ever seen. We could have spent a week there. Small huts for changing and toilets (if that's what you call it). Great tour guide! Finished with a walk in the old town of Rhodes, and swimming next to the cruise liners (even though it says not to, every one was. No one enforces it). We saw plenty of poor children, asking for money... and then stealing things out of unattended bags. They sit up in the windows and watch. Be careful!
