We had a really fun tour on the trikkes with our guide, Theo! He gave a thorough demonstration of how to operate the trikke and was very careful to give driving instructions every step of the way as we rode through town. It was a cool way to cover alot of distance in a short period of time. The only drawback to this type of tour is that it’s difficult to take photos on the go although Theo often offered to stop so we could photos at scenic spots. Theo was an excellent guide and it was a very enjoyable way to spend a morning!

wow! excellent tour. we'll planned and well done. The immensity and the length of the walls of the old town become much more apparent riding all around them. The guides were great, and the ebikes made it possible to ascend to the high point even for someone as out of shape as I am. Highly recommend this

Great and very friendly guides and good bikes. We enjoyed the tour because we saw a good variation of the medieval town inside and around the old town. The sunset view was amazing.

Theodore was very friendly, and trikkle was easy to learn. I thought this vehicle is optimized for passing through narrow alleys. I didn’t know how the 3 hours went. ευχαριστώ

Great tour with knowledgeable guide,good quality bikes, a great way to see the town.
