To join our tour you don't need to pay a deposit, but as a participant, it is obligatory to follow the tour and stay with the group.
How safe are the tours?
Safety is our number one priority. Each tour begins with a safety and bike usage talk. Our bikes are maintained by in-house mechanics on daily regular basis and our staff prepares a correct bike fit and size for every participant. The tour route takes place on the paths, trails, and sidewalks. We provide helmets (which all tour participants must wear) as well as safety lights on our evening tours.
How do I check for tour availability and make reservations?
You can check availability and make your tour and rental reservations online. We will ask for the names of all participants and their approximate heights, so we are able to set up each rider with the appropriate size of the bike. Walk-ins are welcome, if space is available. Tours are filled quickly and reservations are strongly recommended.
What is provided/ included and what do I need to bring?
The cost of the tour includes the use of a comfort full suspension e-bike, helmet, a bottle of water, wine tasting, private sunbed, umbrella & welcome smoothie at the end of the tour. You might want to bring a camera since you’ll find a lot of snapshot opportunities on tour. Otherwise we always take snapshots during the tour, which will be sent to you by email. We advise that you wear seasonally appropriate clothing (not too loose) and closed-toe shoes. Also, you should bring your swimsuit and a towel, if you would like to have a swim after the tour.

Reservations may be rescheduled at any time, depending on availability. Refunds for cancelled tours are available with 15 days notice. Cancellations requested with less than 15 days notice will be issued a full credit which is fully transferrable and never expires. No-shows forfeit payment.
How big is a group and do you split up large groups?
To have a better control of the group, the maximum we take 8 people on the tour. For safety reasons, larger groups are divided, so that each group is no larger than about 8 per two guides.
What type of tour should I choose and which one is right for me?
Depending on your physical condition, time and sights that you would want to see and places to visit, you can choose between three types of tours, Seaside tour, Cross island tour and a customized tour. Seaside tour is more relaxing tour, where we take a time to make stops and visit some of the Santorini undiscovered places, non-touristic villages and breathtaking caldera views. Cross island tour is the tour that we usually suggest to expert bike riders. On this tour we cover the whole island, leaving behind a lot of kilometers and passing through a multiple grounds, uphill and downhill, off road and on road. This tour is a combination of training and sight-seeing, it is more challenging and needs a very good physical condition. If you already have in mind what places you want to visit on a bicycle, then we give you an option to customize your own tour. With the help of guides you arrange from where you will start the tour, where you will go and where the tour will end.
Why book a private tour instead of a semi-private tour?
Although private tours are more expensive than our semi- private tours there are many advantages. First of all because it's a "private" tour, it will only be your group and the guides. This allows you to travel at the pace and speed you want. Secondly, our private tours give you the option of going a little longer or a little shorter on time. What if you have already seen some of the sites on our popular day bike tour and instead want to see other sites? Your private tour you can consulted with our guides before you depart and determine exactly what you want to see or not. Since our guides are experts in guiding your bike tours in Santorini, they know exactly what sites will fit into your time frame and can adjust the tour exactly to your needs.
Is it appropriate to tip my guide?
Gratuities are not included in our tour prices and are greatly appreciated, although not mandatory. If you enjoyed your experience on tour, our guides will happily accept any tip for a job well done.
