Our guide, Sophia, was wonderful! While showing us the sights of Chania, she took us to incredible, local food shops. We started with coffee and a sweet cheese treat as a late breakfast then sampled many different foods over our 4-hour tour. Our teen is very particular and Sophia went out of her way to help us find a few things she would like. We learned so much about Chania and also came away with much more knowledge of Greek food. We highly recommend this tour!

This was an amazing tour with the tour guide Mina. She did a perfect job on the tour was very informative and also fun with her! The tour is in and around the very beautiful old town of Chania. The narrow streets have a lot of charm and the views over the city and the harbor were also a highlight. Thanks to Mina!

Mina was a great guide! Friendly, informative. A bicycle is the perfect way to tour Chania. You cover more areas and get a gentle breeze from the ride to keep cool on warm days. A great introduction to the city. I highly recommend it!!

Very good time spent with Mina, all the stops were beautiful and interesting. Very nice refreshing break! Mina is really welcoming and friendly.

The guide was very informative and the pace was good. The mid-tour snack was a nice touch.
