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 experience. Aspassia, our hostess, was a delightful, friendly and experienced lady. She explained all about the different kinds of olive oil and had us sample a few. This was then followed by wonderful Cretan plates to sample with the different oils. We went back home to check all the information on our current olive oil bottles :) I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing afternoon in an olive grove.
Our guide, Ioannis, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was varied with several stops, including a folklore museum, a cheese factory, a winery and a fantastic lunch. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for those who want to learn something about village life rather than just lying on a sunlounger!
The olive oil factory had a great representative to explain the process. The wine tastings were excellent! The varieties of wines was great. We learned a lot!
This is a GREAT tour! It’s the perfect amount of time and the guide is very knowledgeable. Fantasy wines:) highly recommend!
