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.

An Unforgettable Tour of Rhodes' Ancient History My family and I took a tour of the Rhodes Town Jewish Quarter and Grand Master's Palace in April 2022. Our guide Nikos took us on an unforgettable tour through the centuries explaining to us in great detail the history of these two significant episodes in Rhodes' history. Nikos is a superb guide whose knowledge was only surpassed by his patience when answering our endless questions. We had a wonderful tour and highly recommend Rhodes Experience for their efficiency and professionalism. Nigel Kersh Raanana Israel…

First class travel/tour company Fantastic booking experience for a half day fishing charter! They even arranged private pick up at our hotel so we got to the harbour on time. Our driver was so amazing we had him take us around the island today! It is so nice to have a local travel company go the extra mile.…
