Highly recommend this Ecobike tour with wine tasting! We had never ridden ecobikes before, but we got used to them pretty quickly. Alex and Marina were very communicative prior to the tour. Marina was our guide for the day and we thought she was fantastic: friendly and informative. We stopped by three different restaurants in town to sample delicious mezzes and five glasses of wine. Because Marina is a professional sommelier, we learned a lot about local wines. Alex joined us at the last stop and they shared anecdotes and local recommendations; it felt like hanging out with friends and we had a blast!

Highly recommend this e-bike tour! Michalis and Lena were very friendly and Michalis was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and shared just the right amount/depth of interesting information. The tour was very well-paced with a mix of stops: a couple of monasteries, the military museum, a hike through the stunning Myli Gorge, a viewpoint, and lunch (which was one of the best meal experiences of my life between the beautiful view and delicious food). We don't bicycle often but the motor made the hills extremely easy and the views throughout were incredibly beautiful!

Alex and his wife are wonderful people. It is a very relaxed atmosphere as you bike through the streets, and hear about the history of the city. The motorized bikes are very fun, and only took a few minutes to feel comfortable operating. The wine tasting was very informational and delicious! Both hosts make you feel like family, and made the whole experience worth it. Honestly, it was our favorite activity while visiting Crete.

Alex and Maria was so kind and friendly, sightseeing was also good and food are fascinating

Wonderful experience for my husband and daughter .
