Very nice tour, even for inexperienced cyclists. Michaelis takes a lot of time and explains in detail the nature and surroundings of Rethymno! There were only two of us on the tour today, the climbs to the monastery are also easily doable for inexperienced people thanks to e-bikes. The tour was rounded off by an excellent multi-course critical lunch. We really enjoyed the tour with all its impressions and views.

We were a group of 4 couples who are very glad we chose this Ebike excursion. The bikes were well maintained and made the steep hills easy to manage. The places we stopped were fun and interesting. The scenery was beyond beautiful and lunch was great! Michael is a well informed, charismatic guide who made the experience even more fun. We all highly recommend this exceptionally fun day!

The bike ride I rode with my daughter today, with all the nice sights and the walk through the Myli gorge was really fantastic. Our guide Michali told us a lot about the history of many places and told this in a very pleasant way with a lot of enthusiasm. Really recommended

This tour was wonderful! We learned so much about the history of the area and Cretan culture. The biking was easy and felt safe. The food was delicious and the landscapes were beautiful. I really can’t say enough good things about it!

Michalis is a great guide with a big knowledge. What I liked to most is his passion about the region. It is mpre than a bike tour but a cultural trip.
