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 Day 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 Day 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 of 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. And for a look 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 Day 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.

They get you there, no worries We always use MBC TRAVEL to arrange our holiday transfers to Tilos, they are brilliant. Everything is smooth and well organised. We are always 100% confident that our lovely taxi man will be at the airport to collect us, they book us into an ideal little hotel by the port and get our ferry tickets for us. Removes all the worry, especially with night flights and overnight waits for ferries.

Transfers from Rhodes to the island of Chalki MBC travel look after you brilliantly. We will have now used them for five years in a row to manage our transfers, taxis, coaches, ferries and any overnight accommodation before we arrive in Chalki. Their team is professional and courteous and makes the holiday get off to a terrific start. I cannot recommend them enough. Rob, Leicestershire, LE14

Exceptional MBC Travel I was highly impressed with the professionalism and organisation of the tour. Everything was thought through, down to the finest details. The establishment chosen for food was excellent and the wines were superb. I was introduced to locals and witnessed their culture first hand. I would recommend MBC and their cooperators and look forward to going back to enjoy the hospitality again.

Great Company To Deal With We have been and still are regular visitors to Halki near Rhodes. We have always used MBA Travel/Nissia Holidays since their inception. They are a small friendly organisation who treat every one if their clients as part of their family. Very efficient whilst offering a personal tailored service. We highly recommend dealing with them Meni & her son Daffy are excellent!

Amazing tour into the Medieval city We booked the Medieval history tour with MBC and really enjoyed an amazing afternoon. The kids where amazed with the castle & the knight's tales and we really enjoyed the wine sampling afterwards. We actually visited that restaurant for dinner the same night and it was excpetional! MBC took care of our transfers from the hotel to the Medieval city as well - nothing else we could've asked for!
