Chania (pronounced as Hania) is one of the important towns in Crete Island. Some of the impressive things about the town are its old town with narrow streets, the venetian port, lively harbour and many restaurants that dot the harbour.We had only less than a day in Chania, we knew we had to do something of a noval way to experience the town. We partnered with GS Tours Chania on a Trikke Tour around the old town.
The guided tour started with a bit of practice session on steering, how to stop and control the vehicle. In 5 minutes everyone of us were ready to start. We navigated through the busy streets, passing through narrow lanes and came near a beautiful church, a viewpoint of the harbour, then surpassing through the venetian harbour and lighthouse, before returning back.
What we liked about the tour
It’s one of the newest and interesting way to experience the town. There are options to choose if you want to take 30 minute, 1 hour or 2 hour tour. The tour guide accompanies you throughout and gives all the information about the town and places around. Helmet is also provided to ensure safety during the journey. They also take pictures of you with trikke in some of the important places, and promptly emailed the pictures back. It’s one of the novel and environment friendly way to experience the town, and we totally recommend it.
