Questions & Answers

Can I bring my own bike?

Nothing compares with riding your own bike, therefore feel free to take it along. All the logistics of your bike case are been taken care of. We will collect it after you assemble the bike and deliver it back to you on your trip's end. You will also be responsible for assembling and disassembling as needed, or we may provide a mechanic (based on availability) for a minimum fee of €200.

Cancellations due to Covid

In the case of official restrictions, or imposed travel bans, resulting in cancelling your arrival to Greece, the trip is postponed for future dates, anytime within the next 3 years from your original departure. The next trip will have exactly the same terms as the initial one. Note: the new dates should be during the season with the same tourism activity (e.g. if your trip was set for May you may not be able to postpone that for August). In case you decide to cancel, cancellation fees will apply and per our terms and conditions.

Hygiene during the trip, what should I expect?

Sanitizers and alcohol tissues  have always been a part of our daily life. In the light of this pandemic we guess that we cannot deviate from that.  Masks: we expect the guests to bring their own masks which they can wash and feel comfortable wearing, while our staff can also provide some some in case of shortage.

Fun fact: Two of our drivers, very sweet guys, have a more than a few microbe phobia issues.  Even during our early stages as a touring company, they have made sure we adopt a "surgical room" approach when it comes to cleanliness in our vehicles, commonly used spaces and personal hygiene.
