About the tour
If you wish to see the best that Kos town has to offer in comfort and style, and then why not join us on our half day City Tour. Our guide will accompany you throughout the day taking you around the ancient sites of our cosmopolitan town. You will see the Ancient Tree of Hippocrates where the father of modern medicine was thought to have taught his students. Wander around the castle of the Saints (Venetian castle of the Knights of St.John), the bridge, crossing over the beautiful Avenue of Palms and take some excellent photographs of the harbour and its many wooden cruise boats. The Museum in Kos hosts many antiquities, including impressive mosaics and a statue of Hippocrates. The Casa Romana will take you back to the Italian occupation and give you a chance to see some of the best preserved mosaics in Greece. The final stop will be to the Temple of Hippocrates, the Asclepion. Perched on a hillside overlooking the whole of Kos Town and Turkey this ancient site not only offers you some excellent photo opportunities but will also take you back in time to the beginning of the medical world as we know it. On our half day tour an extra stop will be made at the beautiful mountainside village of Zia. Zia overlooks the whole of the north coastline of Kos and for photo enthusiasts is the best vantage point on the whole island offering views to the neighboring islands of Kalymnos, Pserimos and Plati. Zia is famous for its local crafts and locally grown herbs and spices. You will have plenty of free time to wander around the village, shop for gifts or moments of your holiday or just sit in a rooftop taverna taking in the view.
