  • Full-Day Trip to Chania from Rethymno

    The bus departs around 09:00 from Rethymno for the drive to Crete’s capital city of Chania, the most beautiful town on the island. Settled more than 4,000 years ago, Chania is one of the oldest cities in Europe. On this full-day excursion you’ll have 5 hours to explore Chania, with plenty of free time for a romantic walk through the idyllic old town. Visit historic neighborhoods, churches and museums and take a walk to the beautiful Venetian Port for shopping, a cup Greek coffee and lunch (not included in the tour price).

  • Knossos Palace & Heraklion Full-Day Tour from Chania Area

    4. Knossos Palace & Heraklion Full-Day Tour from Chania Area

    Depart from Chania at around 7 AM and head eastwards along the north coast. Pass the city of Heraklion and continue towards inland Crete until you reach the Palace of Knossos. The palace is one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, a cradle of European culture and the center of the Minoan civilization. Follow your guide on a 2-hour tour through the fascinating story of the Minoan period and learn about the Minotaur and Ariadne. Afterward, rejoin the bus which will bring you to the heart of the capital city of Crete, Heraklion. Take the chance to visit the archaeological museum, where you can see and learn about the Minoan period while accompanied by your guide. Finally, enjoy 2 hours of free time to explore the busy and lively city of Heraklion, have Cretan lunch, and drink Raki. At around 3:30 PM, the bus will depart on its return journey to Chania.

    Knossos palace is a must see whilst in Crete. The guide on the bus there and at the Site were extremely knowledgeable. The only slight downside is that you don’t get long in Heraklion after the palace (2.5 hours), and if you’re planning on going to the museum there can sometimes be a queue to get in, which means you don’t have long around the actual museum and then have even less time to go into Heraklion to walk around/look for something to eat. However still a great trip that we really enjoyed

    Wonderful and intimate tour! We were able to see the oldest olive tree in the world on a family-owned farm, then travel to Anoskeli winery where we tried olive oil and wines from the winery. The olive oil was the best we have ever had. We then traveled to a lovely restaurant for lunch, where our meals were already ordered and we were able to try traditional Cretan food like stuffed zucchini flowers (our personal favorite). We were shown around the countryside as well, and while it was good amount of driving, the views were fantastic! There were supposed to be 4 of us, but the other couple did not show up so we got a personal tour from George who was incredible! He was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed his company throughout the day. Overall, a great tour that we highly recommend.

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!
