The insider tip in Chania!

Yannis was a super personable guy who led us to the most beautiful corners of Chania and provided us with the interesting history of the city and creations. The 3-course menu included in the tour and the wine accompaniment were excellent. Then we went to very nice bars with raki supply. Highly recommended - the honey raki!

Amazing history, food and company!

The tour started off with a walk around central Chania with history on lots of stopping points with some amazing views. Then we ate at an amazing restaurant with 3 full courses each with paired wines. The wines went perfectly with the food and I was totally full of delicious food. We ended the night with a trip to a local tavern that manly locals only know about and had some Raki. My tour guide was John and not only was he extremely smart about the history of Greece but he was very comforting to be around. I highly recommend this tour.
