  • Day Cruise to Symi with a Swimming Stop at St. George Bay

    As you enter the natural harbor of Symi, you will be charmed by this beautiful island. One of the most picturesque islands of the Dodecanese, Symi is a visual treat with its colorful buildings and imposing churches. Lively Gialos, the harbor area, is very small but lined with little cafes, fish and seafood restaurants, sponge and spice stalls. For shopping lovers, there are interesting handmade jewelry, clothing and gift shops. 

    On our way back to Rhodes from Symi we will stop for swimming and snorkeling at one of the most beautiful beach all around the world – Saint George’s bay. Jump in its emerald refreshing waters or lay back on the boat to enjoy its wild setting.

    On this trip we won't stop at Panormitis Monastery, as we don't want you to get tired and spend too much time on the boat. But if you want to visit Panormitis, once you are in Symi, you can ask for a minibus, that can take you there. The trip to Panormitis will take ~20 min one way, you will spend there ~30 min, and then on the way back you will stop for panoramic photos of Symi from the top. Price: 6 euros per adult and 3 euros per child (both ways: Symi-Panormitis-Symi).

    Available to rent on the boat:
    - Full Face Snorkel Mask - 5€

        Great value boat trips, with pick-up from Hotel Booked two trips (Symi & Lindos) via the internet with Tourtlee before I left for Rhodes. Didn't have to pay up front - was just given a pick-up time for both trips from outside the hotel I was staying in. A coach duly arrived at the said time and both trips turned out to be fantastic. The trip to Symi was on a bigger boat with a stop-off on the way back to swim in St George's Bay. Symi is heavenly - a Greek 'Portofino'. The trip to Lindos was on nice Boat and gave us an intermittent commentary on some of the sights we were passing on the way to Lindos. We also stopped off for swimming in Anthony Quinn Bay. Both boats were clean and well-equipped with toilets, bar etc. The boat had the best atmosphere - smaller, friendlier and great music and you got the feeling Captain really loved his boat & island and wanted you to too. Each trip was very good value at 20 Euros, plus an additional 10 Euros if you wanted a door-to-door return coach transfer. The coach & driver was friendly & helpful too.

        We had already had a very positive experience with this company on our day trip boat ride to Symi.... an excellent, well organised & pleasant time, on a picturesque island. George was our driver to & from our apartment, and after chatting with him for a few minutes, it was obvious that he was a polite, very knowledgeable man who spoke excellent English. We discussed our plans for the coming days and mentioned the Bee Museum. George suggested that a tour with him would be cheaper than a taxi to the location. He also suggested that we may take in some wine tasting and an olive oil producer too. We were keen to go to the Bee Museum but not keen on wine tasting - and so we ended up with a personal ‘custom tour’ with George as our driver and guide. We visited the Bee Museum which was excellent, then we went to a pottery producer -again excellent, then onto an olive and olive products outlet, also excellent. We then went off the tourist trail to a small village where we had a leisurely break with our first experience of Greek coffee, served with a lump of Quince jelly/jam as a sweetener. At all times George gave us his full attention, gave polite and informative narrative to the various sites we saw, and we had a fantastic trip. He was a careful attentive driver and took us through some lovely Rhodean countryside. We highly recommend this company, and George, as a great way to get a really easy going enjoyable touring experience, and with the added bonus of good value for money.

        Lovely service, picked up from our hotel and taken to the boat in a comfy mini bus. Loved the boat cruise- smooth sailing and nice facilities. Symi is a fabulous place to Visit and the tour company’s recommendations were great.

        Made my holidays! Had amazing wine tasting tour. It was really great experience to see wine making behind the scene. I never had experience to see how they grow grapes in the village. Had a chance to compare small family winery and a bigger one, honey association was very interesting and Sweet as well. Next day had a great trip to Symi island with them.Transfer was just in front of the hotel, comfy minibus, boat was not packed and we had a great time in St.Georges bay, swimming stop was just what we needed after the hot day in Symi town . 3rd day we took a trip to Lindos by bus and it was spectacular wiev and a lot of history around us . Highly recommending this company one of my best experiences while i was traveling.

        We booked online two tours with Tourtlee. Symi island by boat and swimming at saint George Beach and Lindos by bus. It was a fantastic experience. The waters are amazing, green, blue and turquoise. Symi city with amazing architectur was fantastic. The personnel working in Tourtlee are locals very knowledgeable and very very helpful. Lindos by bus also was very good with pick up and drop off to our hotel. Also I need to mention that we where not charged online but we just reserved and we payed on the day of the tour.

        Best prices and best service! Me and my wife visited Rhodes Island on April and booked three tours with Tourtlee. Boat excursion to Symi Island from Rhodes, Lindos by bus and wine, olive oil and honey tasting. The prices were very cheap comparing to the prices that our tour operator offered and the wine tasting very unique. It turned that they are very experienced and most of all locals. We try to help local businesses wherever we go. They showed us some secret gems of this beautiful place.

        Had an excellent time with Tourtlee to symi island by boat followed by swimmimg/snorkelling which was a full day trip at excellent next to nothing prices. I enjoyed so much with this company I further then booked a day tour to Lindos which was beautiful day out with necropolis by donkey taxi. I would definitely recommend. The tour guides were really informative and helpful. 5 stars from me.
