Great way to get a different view of Greece. We went on a 2 hour taster mountain bike ride with Simon

I'm no slim, racing snake, and I thoroughly enjoyed this. There was just my husband and I on the ride and Simon was great at matching our pace (and waiting for me at top of hills).

Yes there were inclines but all were easily manageable and we stopped at the waterfall for a view and a couple of cold mythos.

Was great to get out, through the olive groves, and to do something a bit active

Simon was great. He provided tasty ginger biscuits when we stopped at 'the top'. I left my sunglasses up at this stopping point and he drove us back afterwards to retrieve these.

I would recommend this for anyone of any ability. I'm sure Simon can adjust routes to suit individual ability.

Thanks Simon.

My wife and I took a taster bike tour with Get Active while staying at Hotel Galini after a weeks flotilla with Sun Sail. It was a great experience, Simon the tour guide was very knowledgable and his bikes are a very good standard. We toured the olive groves at the back of Nidri, before a ride to the water fall. I'd highly recommend this activity as a break from the sun beds. You don't have to be a proficient cyclist for the taster - but if you are a proficient mountain biker, Simon will have a route to challenge you.

We took one of the more gentle rides to Nidri waterfalls along with our 2 children (aged 10 and 11). We loved the ride and felt really looked after by Simon and Lucy (who even gave us delicious homemade carrot cake). Our heights were taken in to account so the right bike was provided for us - especially important for the children.

Seeing some of the countryside by bike was a lovely memory (we're not cyclists at all); it really added to our holiday experience. I can't recommend this activity enough, you'll really enjoy it and have great fun.

We went on 2 rides with Simon and Simon. The first the taster ride and the second uplift to the top. The taster ride was excellent. I had very little experience off road and he guided us safely through a challenging enough route. The uplift I did with my 13year old son. It was also great fun and physically not too difficult. The views from the top are spectacular. All in all a great activity and great value.
Thanks Simon and Simon

Fantastic experience. We didn't have much mountain biking experience so went on taster ride, then intermediate a week later. Simon(s) is/are excellent, and provided you are fit enough will instruct you through the more challenging descents, with proper mountain biking techniques (quietly assessing your ability all the time and tailoring the routes to the groups abilities). We would never have attempted the trails on our own, but with Simon constantly watching and adjusting our confidence rose and the challenges passed uneventfully and with considerable buzz on the final time ( of 3) over the terraces of the olive groves, we really wanted to do it again to beat our time! T-shirt hill a taster of how steep expert technique lets you go up, did made a fifth, proud of that. Awesome rides, great guys. Really recommended.
