We had a really fun tour on the trikkes with our guide, Theo! He gave a thorough demonstration of how to operate the trikke and was very careful to give driving instructions every step of the way as we rode through town. It was a cool way to cover alot of distance in a short period of time. The only drawback to this type of tour is that it’s difficult to take photos on the go although Theo often offered to stop so we could photos at scenic spots. Theo was an excellent guide and it was a very enjoyable way to spend a morning!

We had a wonderful time with Popi! It was just the two of us, she made sure we were comfortable and safe all of the time and she was a great tour guide. She went at our pace and we most certainly covered more of the town than we ever would have on foot! It was a nice selection of long stretches and shady streets along with a wonderful bit of speed along the harbour. The short photo stops were also much appreciated! Thank you!

wow! excellent tour. we'll planned and well done. The immensity and the length of the walls of the old town become much more apparent riding all around them. The guides were great, and the ebikes made it possible to ascend to the high point even for someone as out of shape as I am. Highly recommend this

The yellow bus takes 1 hour for the complete tour. When we drove one was in use, ie 1 hour waiting time until it was back in the same place. A bit long in some places. Submarine also runs hourly.

Short but great excursion. Very very much fish, they are everywhere around boat.
