What people are saying about Firka Fortress

We had an amazing experience learning about the rich history of Chania while getting the opportunity to taste the many culinary delicacies the city has to offer! Our guide, Sophia, was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and made the tour really fun for us. Sophia made sure we got to see a lot of the city, including parts of it that we would not have had the chance to see on our own. All of the food stops we made along the way had unbelievably flavourful food. We were extremely pleased with our experience and would recommend anyone to do this tour!

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.

The tour was spectacular and our guide was so kind and friendly. It felt like we were exploring the city with an old friend. We had a great time exploring the city and learning about the rich history. Highly recommend taking this tour as one of the first things you do in Chania as you get to see so much and learn your way around the city quickly.

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.

Great tour - perfect combination of local food and visiting historic places as well as learning some of the history!
