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!

We thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience with Roussos for the Old Town Food tour. Roussos is very knowledgable and taught us so very much in such a little amount of time. We felt the food chosen were all "hidden gem" spots and everything was very tasty. He helped us even after the tour with other beach suggestions and restaurants, while also providing an excellent bakery for a birthday surprise. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

We really enjoyed our tour with Kelly. She was very personable and informative. We learned a lot about the history of Chania and covered a lot of ground in the two hours, but all at a comfortable pace. The foods were delicious and filling. We highly recommend!

Food options were great - a bit off the beaten path. Guide shared detailed history of the town and buildings.

100% recommended, our guide was perfect and we ate way more than enough
