    Your day starts with a pickup from your hotel or at a specific pick-up point with the bus. Drive towards the west side of Crete in order to reach the port of Kissamos Kasteli.

    it was nice. but a bit to short .. about 2 hours on the ferry and about 4 hours on the beach. also the trip with the bus from Chania to kissamos also took like 2 hours in total. so basically stay on road like 4 hours and 4 hours on the beach. not really worth it.

    Taste the authentic foods of Crete at a unique cooking class using only healthy organic ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil, local meats, aromatic herbs and freshly picked vegetables. Stroll around the vegetable garden to get a feel for the raw produce and learn more about the herbs. Then, prepare a traditional meal and learn the secrets of how the locals cook.

  • Chania: Off-Road Tour at Sunset with Wine Tasting

    4. Chania: Off-Road Tour at Sunset with Wine Tasting

    Start your experience with pickup from your hotel in Chania or the surrounding area and head towards the White Mountains. Admire the scenery as you follow unmarked routes across the landscape in an off-road vehicle. Pass through orange and lemon tree orchards, and see the traditional villages of Patelari, Varipetro, Alikianos, and Vatolakkos. Arrive at a viewpoint overlooking Chania to enjoy panoramic views of the sunset. Continue to Manousakis Winery for a wine tasting session, along with a platter of local delicacies to try.

    Truly wonderful. Thanassi was an amazing guide and told us great stories while also being informative. The view up in the mountains is one not many people get to see and is truly breathtaking. The time at the winery was fun and delicious. Cannot recommend enough.

  • Day Trip to Santorini by Bus and Boat from Chania

    5. Day Trip to Santorini by Bus and Boat from Chania

    Board the luxury high-speed catamaran for the 2.5-hour trip to Santorini. Enjoy an island tour by air-conditioned bus and hear informative commentary about the history of one of Greece's most romantic islands. Travel to the village of Oia at the northernmost tip of the island. The village offers magnificent views of the blue and white houses scattered on the hillside. Continue to Fira, where you'll have free time to explore the island's capital. Browse the shops or enjoy a drink at a bar with stunning views of the volcano. Swim from a black sand beach at Perissa or Perivolos. Depart for Crete at 05:45 PM, where the 13-hour trip ends in the port of Rethymno.

    It was a little confusing in the beginning. We were picked up on the bus and just dropped at the port with zero explanation on what to do and where to go. We were all herded to a massive line and had to figure out what to do next. Once we were on board, about half way into the boat ride they announced what the options were when you arrived in Santorini. It’s a rushed day to see Santorini and you don’t have a lot of time but it works if you just want a quick trip to experience the island.

  • From Souda Port of Chania: Private Sailing Cruise with Meal

    7. From Souda Port of Chania: Private Sailing Cruise with Meal

    At 9:30 AM sail east out of the bay past the Souda Fortress on a small uninhabited island. If the winds are favorable stop to take a dip or some photos at the pebbled beach of the scenic white chapel of Agiannis. Follow the coast on the wind and marvel at views of the Ottoman fort high up on the hills and the fort of the Idjedin prison just below it. Continue past the seaside villages of Kalyves and Almyrida, around the Isle of Karga before reaching the lighthouse on the peninsula of Drapano. Again, if the gods of the winds are with you the boat will anchor in a tiny, secret cove for another quick swim. The wind will dictate if the boat sails northeast to a very small cove with beautiful sandy waters or otherwise northwest around another small island to a beautiful lagoon. Either way, the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) will be in view, serving as the backdrop to the cruise. After dropping...

What people are saying about Chania

Highly recommended! Super nice and open staff and a very well-kept, very nice boat which was disinfected. In general, great attention was paid to hygiene, also with the serving of the delicious melon and the shots that were available. Would book it again and then think of swimwear.

This couple is of incomparable kindness, very friendly moment with watermelon and raki. The view is superb when you come back to the port all lit up, it's magic. And for the price it will be a shame to go without.

What a day!! Captain Nikos was amazing. He made us feel very comfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend this trip to anyone who wants to have a wonderful, relaxing day on the water.

The trip was beautiful. Perfect for sunset pictures and the boat wasn’t too crowded either. Would highly recommend this trip!

Great boat Ride. The captain gave us a bit of history when we stopped for the sunset and Raki. Great value for money.
