Cecile and Dino were fantastic. Funny, friendly and very knowledgeable. Be aware that you may have to share a jeep but we had a lovely couple sharing with... read more us and they didn't want to drive, so that suited my partner just fine as he's not the best passenger! . We took the safari at the end of June and it was HOT!! Even with the roof off. The Jimmy jeeps we had aren't luxurious vehicles by any means but when you see the roads they have to travel on, you see why. (Word of advice, if you can get it then ask for the air-conditioned automatic jeep ) Our safari was based in the North of Rhodes and took us to several pretty villages. There are three off road runs which are very dusty (Don't wear white ) There are some pretty steep hilly parts which some drivers may find nerve-wracking! We stopped at a pretty taverna where we got ice creams and juices and our order was taken for lunch at the next stop which cost 12€ and for that you get a main meal, cake and a soft drink. Well worth it. Each stop was a relief tbh. The best stop was towards the end of the tour where we stopped at the beach where getting into the water was absolute heaven. Cecile and Dino are a lovely couple, very knowledgeable about Rhodes and this was probably one of the highlights of our trip.
I do wonder if it would be better to include the price of lunch in the safari price as it would save time for everyone having to wait until the servers go round collecting everyone money for lunch. It would be nice to be able to have a wander round a couple of the villages, to see and buy the traditional products on sale. Few tips or points to know
1. As I said DON'T wear white
2. You may have to share a jeep so be prepared.
3. Snacks and lunch are not included
4. Take a towel for swimming at the end.
5. Take a drinks bottle that keep your drinks cold as trust me, they get hot quick
We would definitely do this again, maybe in the south next time.

After seeing all the ruins in Athens, thought this would be a nice diversion and it was. Great communication from owner Matteo when booking and follow-up. Picked up right... read more on time at the Rhodes port. We did not get on our way as soon as I would have liked...we had to make some stops to pick up people and then had to wait while all the (necessary) paperwork was done and passengers were shuffled around. We had a fairly large group - I think there were 8 or 10 vehicles in our caravan. Even though our vehicle started out as last in line, our leader made sure that many times during the day the vehicles all took turns changing the lead so sometimes we followed and sometimes we were in the lead. Made a stop midmorning for cool refreshments and to place our orders for lunch. Lunch, consisting of salad, bread, kabobs, and sodas, was served under an ancient olive tree in front of a 300+ yr old church and had been prepared by a local restaurant and brought to our location. I personally would have enjoyed stopping in some of the little towns or other sights along the way, rather than so much off roading, but all in all it was enjoyable and the views were fantastic. We stopped at a smooth rock beach at the end of the ride that was so nice and refreshing. Our stop there was for about an hour. Unfortunately, we got pretty nervous on the way back to our cruise ship - there was my husband, me and a family of 5 from Philadelphia (shout-out to Julia, Charlie & girls from Philly!!) that needed to get back to port to board our cruise ship, but there were some delays with moving vehicles around that took precious time. They got us to the port, just in time, but we had no time to visit Rhodes Town, which I would have enjoyed.
