What people are saying about Chania Regional Unit

This is a really worth whole trip. Our lovely guide was very patient, even though it took me a while to get the hang of the Segway. We were also late to arrive and she was still lovely. It’s the best way to see the city and we both loved it. My partner and I tried this. Ages 51 and 57!

Really friendly and accommodating staff! The ride was very comfortable, only two others riding with! Unfortunately not many fish, however the spectacular view and information provided made up for it!

Were only two. Went through Chania, great sunset and perfect view of the harbor in the dark of the beautiful lights.

Amazing way to see Chania and places you wouldn't normally come across. so much fun too.

Nice and interesting tour with live and audio guide.
