We chose the Trikke Chania tour with GS Tours as it was a great way to see hidden Chania, & also very family friendly for our 5year old daughter. What a great way to see Chania, especially as we covered plenty of ground on these very easy to use ‘scooters’. Fantastic for the less able too. Our daughter was a little hesitant at first, however she buddied with Dad & was soon shouting faster! The office was easy to find with all staff very professional & supportive with safety kit & water provided. You get a practice class & then you're off! The Trikke’s are so easy to use even in a crowded area, perfect top speed slightly quicker than walking, and they feel solid. Our nervous 5 year old loved it & she was very safe. Great way to learn about the city & it’s history, plus it offered up many ‘go back’ food, shopping & historical places we would never have seen. For something we booked last minute, we highly recommend this tour through GS, see you next year!

So glad I was able to take this tour. Guide was very knowledgeable, pointing out features of the various buildings & explaining the integration of Hellenic, Venetian & Ottoman features. He was also very accommodating , in terms of my ability to operate the Trikke at my advanced age. Highly recommended this activity.

Nikiforos gave us a great tour of Chania, did a really good job of explaining the history of what were are able to see. He also have us some great tips on what to see after the tour ended. Super nice! Loved it.

Nice tour around Chania's old historic town: nice sights, narrow streets and the beautiful harbor promenade. Riding a tram takes some getting used to.

Great way to see the City of Chania. Kids loved it. Thank you GS tours!
