What people are saying about Rethymno Regional Unit

An interesting route, narrowings, slopes, tight tunnels and mountains. Guide, majestic beach - I recommend you disconnect after some time and go left to the rocks along the road behind the pier. Delicious food at the inn on the way back at attractive prices. Overall, I recommend it :)

Fun tour of Rethymno, seeing old and new parts of town. Excellent guide in Giannis, very knowledgable, caring and generous. Segways don't take long to get used to and get even easier after a glass (or 2) of Raki

The guide was very good, it was a very windy day, that's why they reached us at 3 and a half hours on the beach. The beach is worth the trip

Great, interesting, informative, very good tasting, friendly, wonderful ambience. Thank you, we recommend 100 percent.

A very nice cycling route over the hills near Rethimnon, a nice walk through the gorge and a delicious lunch.
