Rethymno: Old Town Segway Tour

1. Rethymno: Old Town Segway Tour

See the best of Rethynmo aboard a convenient state-of-the-art Segway. Starting from the seafront next to the marine port, you will meet your guide who will introduce you to your vehicle, after which the fun begins. You will depart on your Segway, soon finding yourself in the heart of the Old Town next to some of the most famous sights such as Mitropolis and Nerazze-Mosqe. From there, your tour advances to the "secret" part of the Old Town. Following that, it will be time for the castle. On the way up to the Fortezza Fortress you can admire the breathtaking views of the city as you feel the breeze of the sea from the other side. On the way down, you can glimpse at Venetian Harbour, as you learn about the myth that hides in the water of the Rimondi Fountain. You will eventually finish your tour finding yourself in the most famous square of Rethymno.

NANITA WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! WE WERE A PARTY OF FOUR PEOPLE. TWO OF US HAD USED SEGWAY’S PREVIOUSLY AND TWO WERE COMPLETE NOVICES. NONE OF US HAD BEEN TO RETHYMNO PREVIOUSLY. WE DID THE SEGWAY TOUR EARLY IN THE HOLIDAY WHICH MEANT THAT WE HAD AN AMAZING GUIDED TOUR AROUND THE AREA. NOT ONLY WAS IT AMAZIG FUN…… REALLY AMAZING FUN, IT ALSO HELPED US TO COLOUR AND DECIDE WHAT WE WOULD BE DOING FOR THE REST OF THE HOLIDAY. I WOULD SAY OUT OF 10 THIS WAS AT LEAST 15!!!! WE LEARNT SO MUCH AND HAD AN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT TIME. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK FOR MORE SEGWAY NEXT TIME WE COME. NANITA WAS OUR GUIDE AND WAS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE AS WELL AS JUST LOVELY. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!!

This was the BEST experience! Giannis took us around Rethymno for several hours, just my husband and I. He told stories, stopped for treats and drinks, and catered to our style. I’d do it again and again! I am a thicker gal and was nervous about my capability on the Segway, but learned quickly and had an excellent time. My husband gets bored on normal walking tours, so this was perfect for him as well! This is an excellent way to tour Rethymno - be sure to give it a try :)

We had a great time. Segways were Fab and the 3 hours went by so quick. Tour of the old town was splendid and would definitely recommend to do this. Kids loved it and the host was superb. She really made it enjoyable. 5 stars

Fun tour of Rethymno, seeing old and new parts of town. Excellent guide in Giannis, very knowledgable, caring and generous. Segways don't take long to get used to and get even easier after a glass (or 2) of Raki

Brilliant way to see the city. Nenira (our guide) was superb: excellent English, knowledgeable and very friendly.
