    Great way to see the town and the guide was knowledgeable and patient with the children. Some of the paths we went down were a bit tight, but we took that as part of the experience .

    Such a fun way to see the old town and get your bearings and not as hot as walking! Children loved it! Highly recommend.

    We really enjoyed our day with the rental bikes! You get around faster and farther than on foot, see more of the city and are not tired and tired at the end of the day. There are many bike racks here and even one or the other bike path. We rented three bicycles. Our son got a helmet. The bicycles were in good condition, very smooth and easy to handle. Everyone added a sturdy lock so that we could lock when we stopped somewhere. The staff was super friendly, motivated and helpful. We got a city map, and we were shown the neighborhoods that were worth seeing. Thank you for this completely successful day! Highly Recommended!

    We loved our trikke ride today with Zoe! We learned so much about Old Town Chania and had a lovely time chatting with our leader Zoe. It was great to learn more about the city and culture and Cretans. Thanks so much ZOE!

    My family really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Maria was very helpful, patient, kind and very good with my 6 year old son. I would highly recommend this tour to families. Tip: take this tour of first day to get idea about town.

    The Trikke ride was great. Zoey was our lead & guide. After a few riding lessons, Zoey took us on a tour of the old town of Chania on our Trikke, following her. She stopped at all landmarks of the old town and gave us the history of it. She also took pictures on her cell phone and emailed it to us later on. She had water bottles for us. It was a whole lot of fun going through the narrow & sometimes crowded streets. Thank you Zoey for giving us a wonderful time!!

    Had a great tour with the lovely Maria on the trikes to show us about. I’d highly recommend Maria as your guide.

    Booking was simple and easy, finding the office from the cruise ship port of Souda not difficult. We set off after a quick training session with Demetrius as our guide. He was patient, helpful and informative about the town. We went through some crazily narrow streets and gained a good perspective on the town. Demetrius took us through very pretty areas that we wouldn’t have found ourselves, taking photos for us that were then emailed to us very quickly afterwards. Time on Trikke was 75/80 minutes which was long enough as the twist accelerator does make your hand ache. Book early in the day to avoid the crowded port, it is difficult negotiating people. All in all a really great experience.

    We had limited time in Chania while on a cruise and wanted to make the most of our morning, so we selected the Trikke tour with GS Tours to show us the highlights of the area. The office was easy to locate and we were greeted warmly by our guide, Zoe and her teammates. After a brief practice run, we were on our way on the easy-to-ride trikkes. Zoe was so friendly and accommodating; we were able to cover so much of the town and learned so much about the history while riding the super-cool electric trikkes. She even snapped photos of us on our tour and emailed them to us at the end of our tour. The tour was personalized to our interested and time frame, and was essentially a private tour for my husband and I. Well priced and very memorable way of seeing Chania! Book this.. You’ll absolutely love it!
