What people are saying about Firka Fortress

Ride around Chania was the best decision I made to start my first day in Chania. There was rain in the forecast and they messaged me asking me if I minded and if I wanted to switch days. I didn’t mind riding in the rain so we still went. It turned out to be only me and I really appreciate how they didn’t cancel the bike tour when most companies would. Vasilis was a wonderful guide! He was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. He let me stop whenever I wanted to take pictures at the ring of a bell and found the best routes to ride through a crowded Old Town. It was like hanging out with a friend who knew the city well. It was a good mix of history and good views. We ended up going for almost 3.5 hours because he wanted to make sure I saw everything even when I had a lot of questions. It’s the best way to get a good introduction to Chania and orientate yourself. Bikes are very comfortable and they provide you with water. Thanks for making my first day amazing Vasilis!

Our bike tours alongside our guide Vasilis was amazing. The activity was perfect to sign our last day in Chania. It had been a long time since I had ridden a bike and yet the ride went very well. It was very very pleasant to ride in the small alleys of Chania. We have learned so much about the history of Chania and it strikes Vasilis. He is incredibly kind. We were even able to taste an organic cereal bar, delicious as well as a glass of iced tea made from a local plant. It was great. If I had to do it again, I would do it with great pleasure!!! I recommend Vasilis with your eyes closed!

we decided to do this on a whim, and enjoyed it way more than we thought we would. We did it as a couple, a great way to explore the area and if, like us, you enjoy things like escape rooms, you will enjoy the riddles and puzzles on the tour. we will definitely do it again in another city. I would recommend headphones and then you can listen to the text and as you walk from spot to spot.

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.

An excellent way to visit the city in a fun way and to go to very typical places that we would never have visited. A word of advice, take your time!
