The Chania street food tour was DELICIOUS and informative. Eat a light breakfast and plan on a light dinner because I was quite full by the end of this tour. The food tastes varied from sweet to savory, some common and some unique to the Cretian diet. The walk was at a leisurely pace and not strenuous. Since the central market was closed for renovation, the tour took us through different parts of old and new Chania. Kelly was the best guide ever. She provided an excellent perspective on food and gave a great history of Chania and Crete. She blended all the information together seamlessly and effortlessly as if we were just having a friendly conversation. Not scripted at all. Answered all of our questions and filled in the conversation with interesting topics we didn't know to ask. A very enjoyable tour. Highest recommendation. Try to take this tour early on your visit to Chania so you can get recommendations and tips to enhance your visit.

Super food tour tailored to balance adult and teenager requirements. The food and drinks were varied tasty and authentic. We really felt like we visited Chania properly and saw places we would have missed wandering aimlessly by ourselves. Roussos laid back style was superb and he knows the area and the people so well. We could have taken several hours more walking and eating (but maybe not so much for the teenagers!) and now always look for a food tour with a local guide when in new cities!

Excellent tour by Roussos. We have been to Chania many times, but he showed us so many new sights and amazing special street food we would never have found ourselves. Jim and Fran

We enjoyed seeing the old town and the market, as well as trying local cuisine. A good change from the beach excursions.

Friendly knowledgeable guide, lots of places you would otherwise never experience
