What to expect

Join this tour and discover in a single day the best sites in Kos as well as the fascinating therapeutic center of Asklipeion and the picturesque village of Zia.
You'll start your experience by being picked up at your hotel and taken to the Freedom Square and the Archaeological Museum of Kos. Inside you'll get to learn all about the history behind the many ancient findings you'll see.
Your next stop is the Defterdar Mosque, built by Defterdar Ibrahim in 1724, and the Casa Romana, a 3rd-century Roman Residence: admire the beautiful floor mosaics around the three interior courtyards, with images of animals and sea creatures and other assorted animals. You'll then proceed on to the Odeon, a Roman Auditorium and one of the most crucial public buildings of ancient Kos, the Platanos tree Square, the Castel of the Knight of St.John and the Bridge and much more.
Once your tour of the center of Kos is over, you'll head to Asklepeion on a Mercedes mini-van. Once you've arrived your guide will be happy to tell you the stories of one of the most famous therapeutic centers in the classical world: it was founded in the 4th-century b.C on a hill surrounded by trees and running springs.

The last part of your experience will be entirely dedicated to the charming Zia village. You'll drive up mountain Dikaios, to discover a picturesque mountain settlement of blue and white houses nestled on a steep hillside. Here, the view is absolutely spectacular: you'll look over the northern coastline towards the neighboring islands and take in the fresh air and unique atmosphere. In Zia, you can wander in the tiny paths, walk between the traditional houses with their typical island layout while you admire a unique green landscape. If you prefer, you can also simply relax at a restaurant or bar and enjoy a local Greek dishes and drinks.

Once the visit is over, you'll board once again your mini-van and head comfortably back to your hotel.
