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.

Finally, you’ll learn about the arts and crafts of Rhodes with a visit to a traditional pottery workshop.
