eBikes - Rethymno, Crete (Greece)

This was a fantastic experience! Michalis, who was our tour guide is also the owner and he took exceptional care of our group (8 adults). Cycling through the Crete countryside up into the hills provided some beautiful & spectacular scenery (see Gallery). The eBikes made this effortless! They were surprisingly powerful. We biked to the Panagia Halevi Church and saw the acres and acres of olive trees. We then went to the Military Museum where Michalis discussed Crete's military history as we saw many types of weapons, uniforms and pictures, especially from WW2. We stopped to hike the Myli Gorge and had a refreshment at a local taverna located within the gorge. We then biked to a small town where we experienced the hospitality of a local taverna and had a traditional Cretan lunch, which was delicious. Michalis then took us to the Agia Irini Monastery and explained its history as we toured the beautiful grounds which overlooked a valley. Our tour guide, Michalis was extremely knowledgeable as well as friendly & caring. If you enjoy biking & hiking then this is a must trip for you. You will not be disappointed! All in all, the tour takes about 6 hours where you will bike approximately 14 miles through the countryside and hike approximately a mile through the Myli Gorge.
