What people are saying about Chania

I’m really going to have to agree with other reviewers and say this was a fantastic tour. The trip to Bali’s lagoon for pictures was fun and informative as Nasos kept us informed about Cretan history and the local area the whole way there. He was engaging and funny and we felt at ease with him immediately. If I could book our time in Crete again, I would look to Nasos and Chania Adventures to help plan our time, it was that enjoyable! Falassarna beach was incredible. The water was so clear and beautiful to swim in and we had a very relaxing time in our sun chairs and umbrellas. So glad we started our trip with Nasos and would definitely recommend his services as a guide and this tour!

Unglaublicher natürlicher Anblick. Es lässt sich nicht in Worte fassen. Es gab viele Momente, in denen ich nur ausdruckslos starrte. Wenn Sie nach Kreta kommen, müssen Sie kommen. Aber auf dem Boot findet man kaum jemanden, der eine Maske trägt. Auch ich habe es oft vergessen... Das Essen auf dem Boot war für den Preis ausgezeichnet. Es ist lecker und das Personal ist freundlich. Diese Tour ist sehr zu empfehlen!

The trip started at 11:00, instead of 10:20, as previous users mentioned. The trip on the water was very smooth. Every seat was occupied. The food and drinks were great. The stop at Gramvousa was about 1h30min and 2h30min at Balos. Worth the money

The weather was a little windy however it wasn’t too hot and we enjoyed the boat trip and the lagoon. Water is crystal clear and you can find a piece of pink sand beach there as well.
