What people are saying about Heraklion Regional Unit

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!

I highly recommended this trip to everyone :) Alex and the team are super nice! I got sea sick during the trip and Alex has taken good care of me, providing me motion sick medicine and keep checking whether I got better. They have also prepared various snack on boat, e.g. cheese plate with ham, fruits, cookies, chicken nuggets and also wine. You could really see that they spent effort in each detail. They also helped us taking many good pictures. I really enjoyed the trip. And again, 5 out 5 stars ⭐️

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.

It was a fantastic day out, great hospitality and food and company , Beautiful swimming with snorkel and fins provided. So fantastic to sail the waves A really great day out worth every penny We will remember for ever thank you

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