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
225lb/103 kg weight limit per bike

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!

-If you looking for something unique

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

Alex and his family-owned company Eco Bike Crete exceeded our expectations! We will definitely look him up again when we travel to Crete!

The tour was great. It was so much fun to zip around Heraklion on the ecobike. Alex had a lot of information and stories to tell. The "quest" in the park was a cool idea and the tour was rounded off nicely with a delicious late lunch with the group. A fun, different way to explore the city. Thanks Alex!

Alex was very nice, informative and accommodating. Got to learn more and get tips of what to do and see in this historic city. Warning: do not use Airbnb’s address provided, it doesn’t work for iPhones. Alex will give you a proper address.

Fantastic way to get a quick introduction to Heraklion. Alex is a great story teller, engaging, and reallyeasy to talk to. The bikes are not that difficult to get used to. Alex is safety conscious, and makes the trip fun, easy, and enjoyable. The tour ends at a reallygreat restaurant, with some great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Absolutely worth every penny!

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
