What you'll do

In a small group, we will explore two different things: the historic city center of Heraklion and vibrant and creative everyday life of Cretan people.

As we ride, I will tell you lots of legends and stories about the characters who have shaped Heraklion City.

This ride is for you if:
- you want to see the historic neighborhoods where people have lived and worked for centuries
- sitting on a tour bus is too passive
- you prefer to go off the beaten path and see the alternative sights of Heraklion
- you want to engage with a real Cretan guy, who can give you honest opinions on all aspects of cretan life, tradition and culture.
- you want to see most of the city in one day

You will ride my personal collection of electric bikes (pedal-free), which are fully certified and insured.

We'll move around some of my favorite neighborhood spots, we can do that because.. we ride bikes!!
Other things to note

Hi there! I'm Alex, a native Cretan guy.
I'm a bicycle enthusiast who totally loves Heraklion City.
We will explore the city with my ecobikes (pedal free) and will lead you away from the crowds to lesser-known corners of the city. We’ll share some of our favorite places to eat, dance, and hang out. It will be a great way to start your visit or even explore the best monuments around!

You interesting for a city tour in different hour from the calendar?

Very nice ride on full e-bikes across town. Me and my 2 teenage daughters really enjoyed it all - the stories, the quest, the food. Highly recommended

Tour was fun and most of all Alex made me feel safe. Riding the bikes was a lil challenging for me because I don’t ride bikes. But got it all down after a few blocks. The tour was great, everyone knew Alex and I met a lot locals. It was also a great way to become familiar with Crete.

I went on this tour on my first day in Crete and I’m really glad I did. Alex did a great job of giving me an introduction to Cretan life. As he is a local, we often ran into people that he knew while on the tour which was cool to see. Additionally, got to try some great food, both Greek and Cretan food. The bikes were super easy to ride, and it was more like being a pedestrian as opposed to having to navigate Greek traffic/roads. Additionally, Alex went above and beyond to make me feel welcome as we explored the area, and also after the tour as we drank Raki.

Very friendly and straightforward with what he tells you. You get a real feel of the local culture. The activity is amazing and entertaining through out the whole experience.

This tour is a great option if you wish to go around the town as a pedestrian (not on a hop on-hop off bus) but not walk. Furthermore, thanks to the bikes being electric, it really requires minimum physical effort from you. Considering the pricing, we expected perhaps a bit more in-depth/longer tour with more stops/stories BUT we are still completely content with our decision to go on the tour because Alex himself is such a friendly, interesting and talkative personality. I believe we enjoyed the long conversation that followed the tour, hearing more about local life, the most. He was also willing to rent the two bikes to us for the rest of the day, making it possible to ride to the nearest beach in 5 km distance. We're happy we got to know him on our travels in Crete!

We loved our unique and authentic experience with Alex. The tour was well-paced and a ton of fun. Loved seeing the city on the eco-bike and loved the food stops. Highly recommend this one-of-a-kind experience!
