BOOK THIS PACKAGE
The ancient Doric town of Lindos lies on a rocky promontory 30 miles south of Rhodes town on the island's east coast. This scenic drive passes orange and lemon groves, prosperous vineyards and gnarled olive trees. As your motorcoach makes the last bend of the road, the views of Lindos are fabulous; impressive rocky cliffs rise 400 feet from the sea dominating the town's two harbors. The imposing temple standing high above a sheer cliff dominates the town, and the striking site of the acropolis surrounded by the blue seas attracts artists from around the world. Below lies the Medieval fort and village clustered with pretty white houses and its streets paved with intricately patterned black and white pebbles collected from the sea. There is a 20-minute climb through the narrow streets of the town and another 250 steps up to the temple, so this climb is not for everyone, but very rewarding for the physically fit. Once you arrive to the top, explore ancient sites of the last conquerors including the 4th century B.C. Doric Temple of Athena Lindia with its double-winged portico. Also highlighting the acropolis is a Byzantine church, and the remains of the castle-citadel of the Knights of St. John. From the summit there are great views of the fishing harbor of Psarto, where tradition says St. Paul landed. After browsing through the village with its small shops, brimming with attractive souvenirs, return to the harbor in Rhodes by the same route.

Trip of a Lifetime

What did we like about Greece? The beauty, the people, the history, archaeology, mythology, the food, hospitality in hotels and restarants, everything!
Anthony from Antelope Travel planned the most wonderful vacation for us to Athens, Delphi and Meteora, Naxos, and Santorini. Everything went so smoothly from hotels, transfers, drivers, and tours. Everyone including drivers, hotel staff, and tour guides were gracious, welcoming, and went above and beyond to make us happy. Antelope Travel is located in Athens and Anthony or representatives from the agency met us and were available in each location, so we felt secure knowing that there were people in Greece to reach out to. We highly recommend this agency to plan a custom trip of a lifetime. We have wanted to visit Greece for many years and were not disappointed. Loving beautiful Greece 🇬🇷 💙 Thank you, Anthony!

Fabulous trip and attention to detail!

Anthony Alagiah with Antelope Travel planned the perfect family trip for us in June 2023. Anthony was a pleasure to work with, he communicated in detail and was very responsive to any questions I had and even stayed in touch while we were in Greece.
This was our first visit to Greece and he patiently guided me during the planning process and planned perfect itineraries for Athens, the islands and the mainland so we could experience a variety of different parts of Greece. Keeping three teenage boys engaged and interested isn't always easy but all of Anthony's tours, tour guides and activities worked perfectly for all of us!
We had many air, land and sea transfers and Anthony's planning and his partners ensured that everything went smoothly for us.
We were referred to Anthony from friends and I highly recommend him! I have now referred other friends to him, as thanks to his expertise, we had a fantastic family trip to Greece.
