What to expect

On this day of discovery, you'll explore the rustic villages of inland Rhodes and sample some of the island's favourite dishes. Pretty Orthodox churches, an olive oil mill, a winery in Embona and a typical local lunch are all on the menu. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

The fun starts in Asklipio, a charming hillside village built around an ancient castle and an 11th-century church. Next up is Siana, where you'll get a snapshot of traditional life in the rugged hills away from the coast. After you've tried some locally pressed olive oil at a nearby mill, it's time for a wine tasting in Embona.

And then we are off to Apollona for a traditional Rhodian lunch made from local produce followed by a walking tour of the village. In the afternoon, there's a pit stop for coffee in Profitis Ilias en route to the dinky and frescoed Byzantine chapel of Agios Nikolaos in Fountoukli. A day that'll satisfy both your cultural curiosity and taste buds.

After 90 minutes learning all about this wonderful spot from your guide, you'll be brought to a taverna for a leisurely meze dinner.

    Each of the Dodecanese Islands offers a distinctly different experience – and Symi is one of the most culturally rich of them all. Glide across the Aegean to Symi.
