Full description

Enjoy an e-bike tour with Cretan food tasting in Heraklion, Crete with a guide. Discover Heraklion's highlights as well as lesser-known corners as you learn about the characters who have shaped the city that you see today. Visit some locally loved hangouts where regional food and drinks await.

Head to the meeting point and get kitted out with the necessary bike gear while listening to a safety briefing. When you’re ready, hit the road with your local guide and set off on your sightseeing adventure.

Start the day with a traditional Greek coffee after meeting with a local food guide in the square of Pancretan stadium. Then, ride towards the city of Heraklion, stopping at an ideal spot for photos, followed by a sample of local mezes (small dishes) in a traditional tavern. Tuck into a midday meal at a tavern while enjoying sea views. Try the sweetest Loukoumades (fried dough dessert). Experience both the Mediterranean and Cretan sides of Greek cuisine. Meet locals, from the tavern owners to local farmers.

Once you've worked up a bit of an appetite, savor some delicious Greek meze and learn about traditional cuisine. Finally, stop at one of the city’s ancient markets before heading back to the meeting point where the tour ends.

    Had a great afternoon with our guide Alex. Very nice to ride the electric bicycles through Heraklion to the various catering establishments. In between, Alex explains the different Greek customs and culture. You get a variety of different Greek dishes, drink the local wines and of course raki, raki and raki….. A great experience that we look back on with great pleasure.

    Our family spent the most enjoyable afternoon of our time in Crete with Alex. He is personable, flexible, knowledgeable and just fun to hang out with. We biked all over the place (btw, bikes are super fun and easy to use) and felt super safe. We learned a little about the city, about history and we also ate THE MOST DELICIOUS FOOD of our entire vacation and we’ve had some great meals! Pro tip: skip breakfast and lunch and then take the tour. Also, pace yourself. The portions are extremely generous. An early stop was a deconstructed gyro place ( so good!) and we over ate as it was so yummy only to find out there was a 6+ Course authentic Cretan meal ahead! Besides the amazing food, Alex was very nice and accommodated our request for a last minute tour for our family. He was very responsive and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed his company and getting to know him. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Do not miss it!! Thank you Alex for everything!!
