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 provided an excellent introduction to the history of Chania and Crete, and introduced us to several of the unique foods of the island. She was interesting, articulate and very pleasant. Before our tour ended, she helped us with recommendations for other activities while on our trip. We would highly recommend taking a private tour with her.

Sophia was an amazing tour guide! She taught us not only about the different Cretan foods but also about the history of Chania. We enjoyed our morning walking around taking in the sites and learning about the Cretan culture. It was something great to do on our first day here!
