A Rhodes Trip Exploring Local Culture & Traditions

Discover the hidden side of Rhodes! Experience the rich local life of this enigmatic Greek island on our exclusive Rhodes Culture & Traditions tour.

The rich ancient history of Rhodes has left an inescapable impression on the culture and tradition of the islanders who live here today. Our exclusive half-day tour will introduce you to the hidden side of the island. You’ll learn about the culture, traditions, and everyday life of the islanders, focusing on a traditional way of life that has survived throughout the centuries.

This Rhodes tour begins with a visit to the picturesque village of Koskinou, 8km south of Rhodes Town. Famous for its narrow, winding streets and vibrant, colourful houses, it’s also home to the Koskinou Traditional House. Here, you’ll travel back in time 120 years, as your guide explains the customs and traditions of the islanders using the fascinating items that decorate the building. This is a genuine time capsule of local life in Rhodes at the turn of the 20 Century.

Next on this local Rhodes trip, you’ll learn about the religious life of the island. Religion is an important aspect of Greek culture, and the Greek Orthodox Church is filled with symbolism and ritual. You’ll visit a traditional village church where your guide will explain the significance of religion for the islanders, describe how religion and daily life are closely entwined, and demystify the symbolism and ritual of Greek Orthodoxy. (If you’d like a glimpse at  Rhodes’ Jewish heritage, check out our Jewish Quarter & Rhodes Medieval Town Tour.)

Finally, you’ll learn about the arts and crafts of Rhodes with a visit to a traditional pottery workshop. Here, the master potter will give a pottery demonstration and explain the classic motifs that adorn Greek ceramics. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of why Greek pottery is famed around the world.

This exclusive Rhodes Culture and Traditions tour is private and can cater for between 1 and 9 people. Read more details about this Rhodes trip below and please get in touch if you have any questions. You can contact us whenever you like as we have a 24/7 customer support service to look after our guests.

Rhodes - The Jewish Aspect We were a small group of four on this private tour with Nikos. He's a terrific guide and an archeologist as well. Nikos is very knowledgeable about the history of Rhodes and its Jewish community. We learned about the impact of the Shoah on the community and visited the synagogue and saw where the community had lived. We also visited the Grand Master's Palace which is an eclectic rebuilt palace with amazing artifacts brought there from neighboring islands.I highly recommend this tour and Nikos.Matty MonheitRaanana, Israel

You must use them when in Rhodes! We were a private group of 18. Daffy of MBC/Rhodes Experience was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and flexible as he designed a tour that met our group's unique needs. He then provide us with a great driver (Yannis) and an absolutely fantastic tour guide (Sifi). Sifi got to know our group's needs and, with great flexibility and expertise, adapted the planned itinerary to meet our needs. She has tremendous knowledge of Rhodes, its history and culture and imparted that knowledge to us in a clear and entertaining manner.

Fantastic experience We arrived on a cruise and were limited in time. Rhodes experience arranged a minibus for our group with an experienced driver (Giannis) and possibly the best tour guide (Sifi) I have ever been guided by. She adjusted to our requests and made sure we saw the highlights of Rhodes. She had a constant smile, great sense of humor and extremely knowledgeable of the area. She constantly provided new and interesting information during the entire tour. I wish we could have have spent more time with her.

Amazing - don’t miss this place! Friendly, knowledgable and amazing surroundings. If you’re in Rhodes this is a place to try, not only are the wines great but you need to try the cocktails! The only thing that would make this experience better would be an option for food however not a deal breaker as the place is surrounded by many restaurants.

You have to try it! Wow! We dis not know what to expect, but the visit was so nice. The place was like a hidden pearl, and the workers where very friendly. Our «wine-guide» let us taste wine we never would find any other places and told us about all the family secrets for each product. He also recomended wine-yards to wisit all around Greece (for next years holliday!)😍 You may think, why wine-tasting in Greece? Well, they have their own way of making wine that can not compare to Italian/french og Spanish wines. As people of «true red wine lovers», we ended up beeing true white wine lovers from Greece. Thank you guys so much for opening up a whole new world for us!
