Description

A fun and eco-friendly tour of the city. Enjoy your ride through town while you learn of its history and turbulent past. Our escort/guide will supply you with all kinds of information about Minoan Kydonia ruins, Byzantine Walls, Venetian Dry docks and Grand Arsenali, Ottoman Yalli Mosque and the rest of city’s highlights. Several stops for photos of monuments and the beautiful narrow streets of Old Town.  

Relish the beauty of Chania and all its ancient treasures with the electric Trikke vehicle. Check off the top sights of the old town with this private, 75 minutes tour. Hop aboard your easy-to-ride, three-wheeled Trikke, and zip between showstopper sights — from the famous jewel of Chania, the Lighthouse to the narrowest streets of the old town. 

Enjoy frequent stops to take photos, and benefit from the undivided attention and personalized commentary of your own private guide.

Meet your guide in the centre of the old town at your preferred chosen start time. Then, enjoy a safety briefing and training on your Trikke. Put on your helmet and practice on your three-wheeled, electric vehicle! It’s fun and easy to ride! Once you feel comfortable, follow your guide around, and enjoy several stops for photos as you learn about the sights. Feel free to ask as many questions as you wish the beauty of a local guide is that any commentary is tailored to your interests.

Enjoy riding through the flower-decorated neighborhoods, and pass through ancient landscapes and monuments like the Minoan Kydonia ruins, Byzantine Walls and the Venetian buildings. Admire the Arsenals (Dry docks), the Yali Mosque and the Grand Arsenal. Finish off by feeling the heartbeat of the old town passing through the neighborhoods of Topanas, Kasteli and Kolompo.
