Good guide but Very slow

There were six of us on the tour and our guide was leading on a bicycle. We did a Segway tour in Athens and trike tour in chania. Hands down Segway is much better! On our trike tour we were moving at such a slow pace that it was virtually impossible to keep a consistent speed. It was mostly give gas then break. The guide was very good and very easy to understand so that was a positive.

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.
