Tour Leader for Bike Tours

During the season 2023 (middle of April to the end of October) we will be running our station with a team of up to 10 persons. Every season it turns out to be a rather international team, so there are three company languages with us, English, German and Greek – in this order.

Your working environment

Generally: West Crete does not mean mass tourism as yet but smaller hotels and family pensions. As soon as you leave the busy coastal road you’ll find unspoilt nature and overwhelming Cretan hospitality.

Our guests: 70% Scandinavians (mostly families), 15% British, 10% German-speakers and 5% of diverse nations (please don’t consider applying if you don’t like children!)

Climate: beginning of May to end of October 22-30°C, during July and August rarely up to 38°C, water 20-27°C, until May and from the middle of September some rain showers possible.
