The actual bike tour was great, the electric bikes are amazing and super fun to ride. Unfortunately, the winery was hosting a wedding and we couldn't go there for the tour & the tasting. This is of no fault of the tour guide that was really nice; but we would have liked some advance warning on the day at least (as they knew this from the morning). We missed the whole winery & tasting experience which was disappointing really! We were really looking forward to that! We were taken to a local tavern instead to have a glass of wine or beer and that was it! If we had known on the day and maybe given the option of cancelling, we could have chosen a different your and went somewhere else. Again, not the bike tour company's fault, but it could have been handled a lot better.
Wow, wow, wow! We cannot recommend this ebike tour highly enough. We went places which we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and at each location Vassilis and Katarina gave us an insight into the history and culture of the island. It's clear that they have a deep respect and passion for Santorini, and it's wonderful to feel that enthusiasm throughout the tour. On a practical level, the bikes themselves are really high-end. Vassilis and Katarina do a great job to evaluate the skills of the riders and tailor the route accordingly. The stops along the way for fresh orange juice and a light meal were fantastic as well. Neither my wife or I are big mountain bikers, but we both agreed this was the best thing we did on the island. Truly, cannot recommend highly enough.
We've had an amazing day exploring Santorini on bike. Everything worked smoothly, from the reservation and pick up at the hotel to the drop off back in Oia. The bikes are great, light enough if don't wanna use the motor and challenge yourself, and powerful enough if you're not used to riding uphill too much. The tour is well paced so that everybody can enjoy it and have a good time. Nothing was done in a rush, there's time to chat and take pictures, enjoy a view and a cold drink. Besides the cycling part, the tour is very informative and the views of the Caldera are breathtaking. The food and the wine were delicious. Above all, Katarina and Vassilis are very friendly and professional, we've really enjoyed our time with them and can't wait to be back.
One of the highlights of our trip, the electric bike tour was really special, and enabled us to see parts of the island that we wouldn't have known to check out. Our guide was super knowledgable and told stories along the way, offering to take photos at every stop. The bikes were in top shape, and we biked a total of 20km, but with the motors it didn't feel like much work at all.
What a delightful and fun trip! We loved seeing the small villages and taking pictures of places that were off the beaten track. The tour guides were very helpful and safety minded. The wines were yummy and the scenery was out fo this world! I'd recommend this tour to everyone!!
