Marjan Park Forest tour with Greyp fully electric bike
This was an amazing tour. Goron was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. Definitely a must do with him. He was like being with a friend not a tour guide.

Marjan Park Forest tour with Greyp fully electric bike
Both myself and my wife absolutely loved the experience. The ride up the hill had some of the best views we’ve ever seen. Tour guide was also a really nice guy and made the experience enjoyable. The fully electric bikes were incredibly fun and fast, which made the whole trip effortless. Can’t recommend enough.

Marjan Park Forest tour with Greyp fully electric bike
This is such a unique and special experience. Marjan Park is quite large and I could imagine being able to catch all the views and see as much of the park as we did if we were to walk it. The e-bikes are amazing and definitely one-of-a-kind. Goran is a great host and is very knowledgeable about the city and the park. It was very easy to have normal conversation with him along the way as well and his recommendations for dinner were spot on. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting split that wants to see Marjan park in style!
