Exploring Chania Old Town on a Trikke

Exploring Chania Old Town on a Trikke, Chania, Greece (B)

Chania is the 2nd largest city of Crete and lies in the north coast of Greece. This colourful corner of Greek Island is full of brimming streets, maze like old town, venetian port, lively waterfront and a majestic lighthouse. If you are island hopping in Greece, Chania is definitely not to be missed out. We had only a day to spend in Chania and experience the corners of this city in a unique way. Hence we partnered with GS Tours Chania who run Trikke Tours around the old town of Chania.

Trikke is a chain-less, pedal-less 3 wheel electric cycle where the rider stands on top of the two foot platforms and control the movement of the vehicle. Very easy to control and manoeuvre, Trikke is not only super cool, but also sustainable, environment friendly and recyclable. It is definitely a unique green way to explore any place. And given that Chania has one, we absolutely enjoyed taking this tour. 

The guided tour started with a a little bit of practice session on steering, how to stop and how to control the vehicle. In less than 5 minutes, everyone of us were comfortable with trick operation and we were ready to start the tour. We navigated through the busy streets of Chania and went through many beautiful narrow lanes. The tour guide provided us with valuable information about Chania and it’s historical past. We passed through some of its landmarks and came to the viewpoint of the harbour. We then surpassed through the venetian harbour and lighthouse, before returning back.  ......
