Dear Matt,
I have to take this opportunity to thank you for directing us to Nick, the wonderful taxi tour guide in Rhodes.  We had a wonderful day with him.  We were on a Celebrity cruise this past month and only had  one day in Rhodes, and he was absolutely fantastic.  He optimized our time there perfectly, including a stop in Lindos, which was amazing. There were only four of us, and we wanted to stop for lunch, so he took us to a charming little restaurant overlooking the beach and ocean for a delicious lunch with a view.  We had one of the best Greek salads there, not to mention the unbelievable bread.
Nick speaks perfect English, so it was easy to communicate with him and we enjoyed lively conversation as he shared his wealth of knowledge with us.  Rhodes was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to the Greek Islands and we highly recommend a day with Nick to fully appreciate your time there.
Thanks again for all of your information on Greece.
Best regards,
Barbara Slater

Hi to Both Nicholas and Michael!
The four of us had a wonderful day in Rhodes with you as our escort. We never could have seen so much on our own and your knowledge of all the sites made everything come alive. All your suggestions on where to go and what to see were perfect. Having only one day in Rhodes wasn't enough; but spending it with you made a great day even Better!!
Thanks again! Renee Latty, Colorado, USA


Dick and I are now home from Greece. We got back to North Carolina about a week ago. I am homesick to come back to Greece. We love your country and had a wonderful holiday there. The day in Rhodes when you met us at the ship was truly a highlight of our trip. We enjoyed you telling about the history of Rhodes and especially enjoyed the picnic lunch that day. Rhodes is very beautiful and we would never have thought about it being such a nice holiday place if you hadn't been our escort that day. Take care and hope we will return again sometime soon.

Nick-Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had with Michael as our escort. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. He is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful sense of humor. He was also very brave to spend the day with four women, and most gracious in answering our endless questions!!! We had a wonderful trip and Michael definitely played a part in that! 
Thanks again. Judy Schultz


Dear Nicholas, Yassas, Thank you for your message. We indeed had a wonderful time with Michael. He is a very nice, well informed and accommodating escort. His concern for my sore ankle was much appreciated, as he drove me to where I could see the acropolis in Lindos while the others walked to the top. I cannot fully express my pleasure with your services. Efcharisto. Best regards, Donna and Greg Alaimo.


We collected my sister from the airport in Cleveland a few hours ago. She told us about the wonderful hours in which you opened Rhodes to her. You made that part of her journey HOME for her. Although I knew from our correspondence that you were the perfect person to lead her to the real Rhodes. I didn’t anticipate that much perfection. She experienced the soul of your country. Thank you so much for all you did to make her feel so joyously at home in such a beautiful land. Marjorie Moon.


Dear Nick
We particularly enjoyed your cheerful agreement to our changes of itinerary. It was so nice to be able to see all the sights from the comfort of your car. We thoroughly appreciated riding down those narrow streets instead of stumbling over the cobblestones. We also enjoyed the opportunities to get out and make pictures whenever we wished. What a treat to stop at the road side cafe on the way back from Lindos, taste some native foods, learn the proper names and get the recipe! Thank you, Jim and Shirley Tolbert


Rebecca and I are back in Kansas now. We had a great time in Greece, especially in Rhodes. Thank you so much for touring us around. We made it home with all our wine, We ended up having to buy two extra bags to pack our purchases in, Greece was so beautiful. I must come back some day. Take care. 
Bonnie J. Stephenson, CMP conevent@


Dear Michael, 
I wanted to write and thank you'!! You were very kind and polite to answer so many of our 'interesting questions'!! and to give us an insight into living on Rhodes and in Greece. We had a terrific time touring Rhodes with you, going to Lindos and having that great lunch above the bay. And of course, eating the yogurt and honey! Hope you have a busy and successful summer, with lots of interesting travelers! Thank you again for a great day. Laura 


My wife and I spent a couple of hours with Nicholas last September. We had a wonderful time, got lots of information on Rhodes. He knows the history of Rhodes as well as how life in Rhodes is today. Nicholas speaks 6 languages and is very easy to listen and talk with. He was in no rush. I think he made our stop there wonderful instead of just nice. Graham & Nancy.


Geia sou
Thank you for the wine - everyone enjoyed their day with you - as usual.
I'll be sending some more clients in September. I have put together a group for September and they will be a few days in Rhodes. Will let you know more. Filia, Katerina


Judy and I enjoyed your tour very much, and we probably would have taken your new 5-6 hour tour had you offered it last year. The programs you now offer should be very attractive. Your business seems to be prospering. Best wishes for your future growth. If good fortune ever brings us back to your lovely island, we will call upon your services again. You can always count on me to refer your services to anyone interested in touring Rhodes. Dick Fejfar


Dear Nick: We returned to the USA last Thursday to a snowstorm. Thank you so much for showing the four of us your lovely island! We were the two couples from the Renaissance Cruise .Our rugs arrived yesterday, just as promised. They are beautiful, and we are all pleased. Thanks Sandi Morgan .


I have been in the Travel business in the United States for 22 years and have rarely found someone as honest and enthusiastic as Vasilis.He has been extremely hospitable and our trip to this beautiful island has been greatly enhanced by his advice and local knowledge.

Hello, Nicholas
Just got back from our trip and I wanted to thank you for a WONDERFUL tour.  Your island is so beautiful. Everyone in our group agree that Rhodes was the most beautiful part of the entire trip.  We all feel that you and Dominic did a fantastic job of showing the island and telling us about the different sites.  One day I hope to return, and if I do, you can be sure I will be contacting you as a guide.
Thanks again,
Karen Cromer


Just a short note to let you know that our chauffeur/escort Manuel was very good and we enjoyed his tour. We enjoyed meeting you and would recommend you to anyone who would like a reference. 

Thanks again, 
Mike and Lenore Simmons


Dominic was most pleasand and gave us lots of information about Rhodes and Lindos. He made our trip very enjoyable.
The rest of our journey was also pleasant.
Both my husband and I look forward to revisiting Rhodes, Istanbul and Athens. When we do we will certainly contqact you and I will add my name to those who have previously recommended you. Sincerely, Natalie T. Fisher


George was great, so personable and friendly! He also gave us a great deal of information. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a tour in Rhodes. This was our 
favorite island in many ways. Sincerely, Kathy Reemmer


Michael provided us with a very nice, personal tour of Rhodes, especially the quaint village Archangelos we stopped at on our way to Lindos. We will recommend your services to our friends and family. Lila.


I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your services while
we were in Rhodes. We're back in Cairo now, but had such a wonderful time there, that we are starting to plan for another vacation to Rhodes.

My wife commented how she enjoyed your friendly and fun attitude, and I
agree. My kids still talk about their donkey ride to the top of the Lindos
Acropolis - a great recommendation. I will definitely pass your email
address on to our friends here who are planning trips to Rhodes.

Please also pass our regards on to your brother, and we hope to see you
again someday.

Warmest Regards,

Vince, Michele, Karina, and Meredith Kopriva

Hi Nick

Just returned home this week. Thank you for a most enjoyable tour of Rhodes.

We will be very happy to recommend you to our friends


Helga and Peter 



Dear Nick and Dominique:

I can't believe how smoothly your operation is run.  You were there waiting for us as we disembarked and ready to go.  We were absolutely delighted with Dominique and had a terrific time.  We really appreciated the fact that we/you were able to be so flexibile about our tour, and that Dominique was so knowledgable about the area. The little extras he provided, like the tour through the back streets of old Rhodes, is an experience we won't soon forget and was a wonderful bonus for us. He helped create great memories of Rhodes,  and for that I wish to thank you.

Yours sincerely,  Diane



Thank you for the kind words.

We had a wonderful time and will be sure to recommend your services if we have friends in the area.

Kindest Regards,

Joe & Merle


Dear Nicholas, You were the best driver!  We absolutely loved Rhodes, and it may have been the favorite stop.  Gary tells everyone about the small restaurant overlooking the beautiful water which you showed us - away from the buses of tourists.  From the moment you picked us up, it was great.  Thank you so very much and we will certainly recommend you others. Our best to you and your family, and hopefully, we'll see you again one day soon.

Sincerely,  Pat & Gary

We just returned home from our trip and had a wonderful time.  We especially enjoyed our day with you in Rhodes.  It was so nice to get off of the ship and see you waiting with the Mercedes.  It was such an advantage to get to Old Town before the crowds and we really loved Lindos .You made our day very special and were so knowledgeable about the island.  We plan to return soon,we will contact you when we return to Greece and thank you again for an unforgettable day on what turned out to be our favorite island!  Please feel free to use us as a reference.  We would be pleased to recommend you to anyone.


Dear Nick,

Thanks so much for being in touch! The rest of our trip was great. But we really enjoyed the day we spent with you in Rhodes. Lindos was fantastic, both the acropolis, and then eating on the water. 
We enjoyed our day with you so much that if you need a reference for the future, I'd be happy to provide that for you.



We had a great time on the tour, you guys are great and so very helpful, I will highly recommend you to any one that goes to Rhodes. The entire group was very Impressed with your helpfulness and friendly attitude.

Thanks for all your help and information you provided on the tour.

Hello Nick-- Hope all is well with you and your family.  We really enjoyed our tour with you last month-it was informative and fun.  We hope to return to Rhodes soon and stay for a while.


Tim and Ann Brown 


We had a wonderful tour with George while we were in Rhodes. He was so informative and a great driver. Your island is so beautiful and we found it so diverse from the drive through the Old Town and the Palace of the Grand Master to Lidos/Acropolis.... the donkey ride to the Valley of the Butterflies and the beautiful sea all around us.

Thank you again and say hello to George!

We will recommend you highly!

Thank you for an excellent service. We are now back at home having had a wonderful trip.

Manuel is a wonderful driver, extremely informative and helpful.  What a beautiful island you have.  We were on a cruise and Rhodes is one of the few ports of call which we will think of coming and spending more time at.  If we do we shall certainly be in touch to use your services once again.

Thank you again for giving us a beautiful start to our Mediterranean Cruise experience.

Hello Just got home to California, USA a while ago.

My husband, Alan, and I, would like to thank you and your wonderful brother, Michael, for such a great and informative day of touring in Rhodes.  He made our visit so memorable and special.

Take care.  Hope to see you both in California someday soon!

Best Regards,


Dear Nicholas:
    My apologies for taking so long to respond to your kind note.  We only concluded our world tour two weeks ago and have been busy "catching up" since our return.
    I must thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful service during our stop in Rhodes.  Your brother Michael is an absolute delight and he made our stay so very enjoyable.  We have visited Rhodes before but never saw so much as with Michael's terrific guidance.
    Lindos is surely one of the most beautiful places on this earth and we loved it.  Also, the restaurant Michael chose for our lunch was truly a highlight of our entire trip.  What a magnificent view ... and what wonderful food!!
    My sister Sue, brother-in-law Hank and myself all join in wishing you all the very best.  Please pass on those sincere wishes to your brother.  And may you both, along with your families, have a fantastic holiday season!  Hopefully we will visit again in the new year.
    By the way, should you ever need a recommendation, please feel free to give anyone my e-mail address.  I will gladly praise you and your service to the high heavens.  Again, my thanks!!!
                Most Sincerely,
                      Tom Kuelbs.

Hello. We so enjoyed spending the day with Michael on May 30. We learned so much. The next 2 days in Rhodes we had a rental car and enjoyed the rest of the island ( or least much of it). After Rhodes we went to Santorini and then back to Athens for 3 days in the Pelopennesus with George the taxi driver. (actually we had Niko, a friend of his). A very nice trip to Greece for us. We need to come back soon. Again thanks and wish Michael good luck with his upcoming new family (twins??)


Dear Nicholas,

Thank you for your email message. We did arrive home safely and had a great trip. We really enjoyed meeting you and appreciate your good tour. 

We will definitely be in touch on our next trip and will refer our friends.


Carol T

Nick, thank you for your note and we would like to thank you for the services your company provided us on Rhodes.  We enjoyed our day immensely and we would like to point out to you that we were very happy with Georges tour of the island.  His rich knowledge of the island and his quiet and informed positioning of his services were well received.  We thank both of you for making our day on Rhodes one to remember.

Best regards ... Paul and Freddi R

Dear Matt,

We just got back from Europe - we were on the Grand Princess  - 12 day Mediterranean cruise from Venice to Rome .  Thank you for your helpful information about the Greek Islands There was one driver in particular that really stands out in our minds and his name is Michael P. of Rhodes .  He was so professional and friendly and helped to make our day in Rhodes  so special and unforgettable.  We met Michael at the Rhodes port around 8:30AM and he drove us through the magnificent  Rhodes Medieval-town.  We then proceeded for a scenic drive to Lindos,  As we approached Lindos, we could see the Acropolis and then the spectacular bay and beach below it.  We stopped at the beach, swam in the sea and ate a long, leisurely lunch at a Restaurant, which I would highly recommend.  The food was superb and we chatted for awhile with the chef/owner and his wife to complement them over and over!  We stayed at the beach for awhile and then Michael drove us back to the ship.  It was truly a day I didn't want to end and Michael made it very special for us!  My husband and I will definitely go back to vacation in Rhodes again.  What a beautiful island!

I would recommend Michael P. to anybody planning to go to Rhodes .

Sally M  Bethesda, Maryland

Hello to you, Nickolas and Michael,
Yes, we had a wonderful, wonderful vacation. We will always remember you two and your kindness and thoughtfulness. We had the best time "touring" with you. You showed us so many wonderful places and things that we would never have done on our own and we learned so much about Rhodes from you.We loved Rhodes. It was one of our favorite places. We will always remember the beautiful countryside, the blue sea, the smell of the air. We hope you are both well, that the twins are doing well and that your families are well. Thank you again for showing us such a fabulous time. We miss you and Greece.
Fondly, Penny

Hello: We are back at home and busy as ever… but we had the most wonderful time in Rhodes. You and your brother did so much to make our trip fun and easy…. From meeting us at the airport to our tour on Wednesday. You knowledge of the country and your personal experiences helped make it a great day and we saw so much we would never have been able to see on our own. All I can say is that it was like visiting family and friends instead of just being tourist in Greece.We would love to go back and visit again…So thank you so much. You have a wonderful Island and you are great people! Michele Akers Credit Manager REsource Capital


Hello Nickolas,
We had a marvelous time inGreece!
We enjoyed our time on Rhodes very much- our only regret was that we didn't have more time. Michael was very good - knowledgeable, courteous and good company.
If any of my friends are interested in your service I would not hesitate to recommend you. Patricia Kovacs


Dear Michael & Nick,
You made Rhodes the high point of our trip and we liked the island the best. We loved the country and the people and will definitely recommend you to our friends. If you provide us with your mailing address, we will send you a copy of the photo we took of Michael.

Thank you so much for the wonderful memories.
I will certainly refer others to you.

My wife and I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful tour we had
with Michael on September 21 2006 with Rhodes Private Tours The
professionalism of their company and thoroughness of showing us around
Rhodes was exceptional. Michael was very knowledgeable and made us feel
very relaxed in allowing us to taylor the tour to just what we wanted to
see. The valley of the butterflies was a once in a life time trip. Michael
also gave us some great tips on restaurants. ( Drachma was fantastic Greek
food ) It was the best way to start off our introduction of Rhodes.
Efharisto! Again, Thank you
