    Eclectic Greece experience

    · · Enchanting Cyclades and Saronic Islands

    What a great way to see this beautiful country. The Erato crew provided us with a one of a kind holiday experience. Great food , accommodations on board and a wonderful tour of some special gems on the islands. Our guide was exceptionally attentive and so very knowledgeable

    Fun bicycle trip in Greece

    · · Enchanting Cyclades and Saronic Islands

    Our guide was terrific! I'd give him a 10 out of 10. There were problems on the boat (Erato). 1) Shower door wouldn't close.
    2) Light over bed didn't work. 3) There was moisture from the air conditioning unit made all of the clothes in this closet drenched every night. 4) The air conditioner in our room barely worked. We would wake up to a sweat because it was very hot in our room.
    We were given some wrong information: We were told to bring a beach towel. They had beach towels onboard. We were told to bring soap and shampoo. They had soap and shampoo onboard.

    Great crew and bike guide

    · · Enchanting Cyclades and Saronic Islands

    We had a really great time on the trip. Our guide, Dionesis was fantastic in every way. The food was wonderfully prepared and served. We enjoyed great service. The boat was very clean and comfortable. Our cabin was big enough for the two of us. The high winds did prohibit us from being able to go to the Cyclades Islands, which was disappointing but we did go to other places in the Saronic Islands that were nice. It was also disappointing that we never sailed. When we asked, the captain said that the winds were too low or the passage was too short. I sensed that the crew wasn’t trained to sail the boat. Again, one of the reasons we chose this trip was to sail. We also spent 2 nights of the 7 in the home port in Athens. This area is not very interesting and again was disappointing.

    My group found the e-bike tour to be very fun. Our guides took our safety seriously while ensuring that we were having fun and stopping at different places along the way to let us have a moment to take in the sights. The guides were very friendly and took care to see that we had enough to drink and eat along the way.

  • Aegean Discovery: Cycling through Eastern Crete
    (5/5) Donna Reyes 2 months ago

    A wonderful way to see Crete!

    · Aegean Discovery: Cycling through Eastern Crete

    Crete is the star of the show, and the route allowed us to see so much of its beauty, charm, and culture! Our bikes were top quality and we were glad of battery power since Crete has many hills and a lot of wind. Early May was a perfect choice —weather mild and no summer crowds yet. All the hotels were placed well with great views and access to restaurants and sites. I don’t know if bikes are a common thing as some hotels were not sure where to store them but everyone was friendly and we figured it out. A couple of places we found gravel and an ascent combined that meant we pushed the bikes, but the next downhill with views of that big blue sea or lovely olive tree groves in the sun more than made up for it. Be ready to hunt for the hotel a little from the endpoint if the navigation, but as the day in Crete, “it’s fine, no problem!”

    The Quiet Side of Greece

    · Sparta and the Mediterranean Coast

    After the hustle and bustle of Athens so enjoyed our cycling experience in much smaller Greek towns with more of a local atmosphere. The bike company did an outstanding job of route planning, a harder day followed by an easier one with the option to include a rest/ exploring day instead. The local accommodations were varied and all excellent and no issues checking in, sometimes earlier if we finished quicker. The luggage transfer was flawless. The hills and wind made it challenging but still so enjoyable.

    (5/5) Mirjana 5 months ago

    A fun and educational bike plus walking tour

    · Athens Acropolis Bike Tour

    We were in a 4-day visit of Athens, and had a blast of stay in general, while this was definitely a highlight of our trip. The tour includes around 3 hours of bike tour to all major city sights, after which the bikes are left at the starting point, and from there on, a guided Acropolis walking tour takes on, which entrance is just like 10-min on foot from there. Very inclusive tour, and highly recommendable.

    All-inclusive tour of Athens

    · Athens Acropolis Bike Tour

    The perfect way to combine and experience the highlights of Athens city centre and Acropolis all at once. Our guide, Demos, knew a lot about the city, and shared a lot of interesting facts with us. A plus was also that our group was not too big, so we were able to move around easily.

    Best kind of Bike Trip

    · Founder's Tour: Turkey and Greece E-Bike & Boat tour

    This is our 4th bike and boat tour-if you ve never traveled this way you need to give it a try . What could be better than starting your day in a small harbor, with a wonderful breakfast on deck, then going for an exciting ride , coming back for a swim in the Adriatic, and then cruising to the next port in time for dinner? The food n the boat was plentiful and delicious. Because it’s a smaller boat we were able to spend time in smaller uncrowded harbors. He biking was challenging but the excellent e-bikes made it fun for all ages . Everyone on the boat agreed that two weeks was ideal-a one week trip just doesn’t give you enough time to settle in. There was never a dull day and if you don’t want to ride you can stay on the boat or walk the town-lots of options and flexibility. This would also be a good trip for a non rider in the family. I also highly recommend the Croatia bike and boat trip-it was fabulous. October is the best time to be in any of these places. The weather was warm enough to swim all the time and things weren’t as crowded as during the summer

    Excellent trip except the physical condition of the boat was unacceptable. IslAanding Hopping did a superb job as well as the boat crew. As we paid extra for our room we were very disappointed. We have traveled with Jim Johnson for 20 Yrs. All have been excellent as we continued to travel with Bike Tours. This trip was disappointing due to the condition of the boat.

    Great Trip with outstanding guides. Food was excellent and bike tours were perfect. The guides were very experienced and knowledgable. The boat cabin was comfortable. Only reason this wasn't given a 5 star is a number of issues on the Love Boat which have been addressed with the tour guides, company owner and boat owner. The Itinerary was also fantastic. A very good group which added to our enjoyment

    Cycling adventure in Greece!

    · Sparta and the Mediterranean Coast

    The trip was great! It is always such a unique experience to cycle and explore new places on bike. The people and the food in Greece is 10 out of 10!!
    Some days were a bit demanding (especially the first day) as we had non electric racers.
    The highligts were Gythio, Monemvasia and the island Elanfonosis, though every village is charming and worth visiting. The cycling paths were non traffical with few exceptions and we find the drivers very polite and gave us enough space. Self guided was not a problem as the app was great and easy to follow.
    As we had the trip in low season it was some times a bit hard to find a place opened for lunch but always managed in the end!
    Hopefully this was only the beginning of cycling in Greece.

    Overview of Athens by Bike

    · Athens Private Bike Tour

    A great way to get oriented in the city of Athens. The guide was very knowledgeable. The tour route was carefully selected to keep us off the busy streets which was much appreciated! We got the highlights and definitely saw things I would not have stumbled upon on my own (example: changing of the guards in front of the presidential residence). Just the right amount of history and some great photo ops (views of the Acropolis, etc) that felt like local secrets that other tourists would not have found.

    A great way to explore some of the smaller towns in Greece. There was a little more riding on roads with narrow or no shoulders than we had expected but drivers were generally courteous. We were not advised of a hotel change on the first day the ride which caused some unnecessary confusion.
