Naxos: Aegean Sea & Lush Lowlands Private Guided E-Bike Tour

3. Naxos: Aegean Sea & Lush Lowlands Private Guided E-Bike Tour

What has the Aegean sea got to do with lush lowlands? They blend perfectly in this tour. Plains of olive tress, canes and citrus fruits next to the Aegean sea constitute the natural scenery of this tour. Several stops, information flood of archaeological and agricultural interest and then.. the infinite blue! The beauty of Melanes valley will get you in the right mood before getting to know the two wonders of ancient sculpture lying imposingly – the famous Kouros statues. Eggares citrus valley is next, about which the nine times for Nobel prize nominated, great Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis, wrote : “If paradise was on earth, it would be here”. The hospitality of Eggares Olive Press museum was more likely the kind of hospitality that hugged him, to speak these words. Let the curators of the museum treat you the same way, in a full tour. Our friend Giannis will accommodate you next, in his farm with his own produced cheese, vegies, wine and/or raki. His eyes and smile speak English, although his mouth doesn’t. Do not eat or drink too much as Ammitis beach is waiting, after a 10 minutes ride. Hammocks, lunch and infinite blue lie ahead. A relaxing ride throughout the citrus plain of Eggares and Galini villages and right next to the ocean later, will be your last taste of the tour.

What people are saying about Naxos

Great experience for the whole family! Our tour inside the museum was information rich and not boring for the kids at all. After our tour we headed to the outside space where we plant our own seeds and played games that were also played in Ancient Greece. The cute museum corner with actual copies of toys that kids in antiquity used to play, gave us the opportunity to get in touch with the ancient Greek culture. Sack races and a funny game with rope came next and we played all together. We enjoyed our olive oil experience in picnic tables by eating a fresh salad of cucumber and tomato and of course we tried some bread and olives. Some crafting for the closure and a photograph with polaroid camera which we took as a gift to remember our experience. Thank you for everything

Our hiking tour with Thomas was exceptional. The route was well planned and engaging. The guide paced our walk perfectly for our group and took us to many scenic spots and interesting locals. Thomas was knowledgeable about every facet of the landscape - the history, botany, local farming practices, the economy, the culture. He generously shared his experience and was able to answer our many questions. Afterward, we felt we could look around Naxos and understand so much more about what we were seeing. Our many thanks to Thomas and for the comfortable, proficient drivers who saw us to and from our hotel.

Man's has the best bikes of all the islands! He was very accommodating when he had to make last minute changes. Our guide, George, was a joy to spend the day with. He knew a lot of history and loves to sing while riding! We would highly recommend this tour!!
