This e-bike tour was definitely one of the highlights of my holiday in Crete. We were brought to the hills surrounding Rethymno, the Milis Gorges, the local olive oil museum and a monastery with beautiful view for a total of 20km ride spread in 6 hours. The host was amazing, providing not only helpful advise on how to best get familiar with e-bikes but also telling stories about the local culture and traditions. It was a unique experience, which you can only have when locals show your around. We also had a stop at a coffee in the middle of the Gorges and had lunch in a local taverna, where food was delicious with lots of vegetarian and vegan options (best would be to specify it in advance but also on spot they will surely not leave you hungry!). I went together with my boyfriend and it was perfect as couple activity but also for solo travelers or small groups. The path was not tiring at all and the e-bikes provided great help during uphills. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Crete!
This was an amazing adventure. Some people were hiking with sandalas, but you must have a good sneakers or shoes. It wasn't so hard as some people would say. So grab a pair of sunglases, 2 or 3 bottles of water and prepared for an amazing hike, which mister Bilbo Baggins would appreciate so much. P.S. You should know, that in a second part of a hike you will not find so much spots to fill water bottles, so beware.
The trip was smooth and they take you to the great places, such as a small village, a quiet beach and a more energetic beach afterwards with so many small and cool shops! Barb and Costas were so welcoming for our 2nd participation after Elafonissi Beach and we were so glad we joined the tour again! Highly recommend:) Thank you Markidis Travel! Satoko and Paul
amazing beach, comfortable ride, amazing tavern where us foodies had one of the best meals ever, that the guide suggested. cannot complain about anything.
Scenic route to the beach. Quick and easy pickup. Small group. A lot of time for swimming.
