6 hours long.
Your guide will pick you up for a 6 hour private Patmos tour. Visit the Monastery of St. John and the Apocalypse Cave. Take a scenic drive to the charming, traditional village of Lambi.

This private Patmos tour is guaranteed to operate with a minimum of 2 passengers.

You will be met at the port to start your tour.

Drive to the village of Chora, where the Monastery of St. John is built within the walls of a strong fortification. As you walk uphill towards the entrance of the monastery, marvel at this magnificent structure which was built 900 years ago, exceptional in its architecture. View the courtyard, the monks’ dining room and the old bakery before entering the main church, with outstanding frescoes and interior decoration.

Next, see the priceless ecclesiastical treasures housed in the beautiful, small museum: books and manuscripts, mosaics, icons, splendid medieval textiles and vestments, as well as jewelry.

Return to your touring vehicle and continue to the nearby Grotto of the Apocalypse, above which stands the Church the Apocalypse, part of the main monastery. Walk down the steps to see the grotto, where silver niches in the wall mark the pillow and ledge used as a desk by the author of the Book of Revelation, as well as the three-fold crack made by the voice of God emphasizing the honor of the Trinity.

Drive on to Kambo village and stop for a drink.

Continue to the traditional village of Lambi.

As we proceed from place to place on the island, we’ll pass many beautiful inlets and tranquil beaches.

At the end of the tour, you will be transferred to the port to rejoin your cruise.
