Sophia was a wonderful guide! She was timely, professional and was very watchful of our tight schedule. We enjoyed such delicious food and beautiful alley ways and flowers while waking to the next tasting. Her knowledge of the area and it's history was amazing. Because of this tour, we decided this is a place we would definitely come back to for a longer stay.

We had Sofia who was an amazing guide. She did a great job telling us about the history and cuisine of Chania and Crete in general. The sites she showed us alternated between good and great - she also helped us take a ton of amazing photos. That was a massive plus for us.

Sophia is the BEST tour guide and this food tour was the highlight experience of our trip to Greece! It was just me and my fiancé on the tour and we learned so much about the city and ate a lot of delicious food. Sophia is originally from Chania and seemingly knows everyone (who were all excited to see her!), which made the experience even better. We had nothing planned for our last day, so Sophia gave us a list of places and restaurants to visit, which she broke down in terms of activities (beach versus mountains) and the length of the trip (half-day, full-day). That night we hopped around the various local spots she recommended, which were unsurprisingly great and popular among locals, and the next day we did a day trip to the mountains. I cannot recommend this food tour enough. If you’re in Chania, it’s a must!
