The bus was on time. We were picked up directly on the main street in front of our hotel (normal, somewhat older coach; but everything was fine). In spite of the other stops to pick up the other passengers, things went very quickly. The tour guide (English, Russian) was very nice. Chania is (of course) a very beautiful city. The trip is therefore definitely recommended.

We were picked up at the hotel on time. During the 1.5 hour bus ride we learned a lot about the history of Crete. There was a lot to see in Chania, the beautiful old town with its small streets, taverns and shops. Was a very nice trip that was worth it. thanks

In the bus we got a map of the city with a recommended route. During the bus trip, the tour guide gave a lot of tips. In the city you are 5 hours, which is enough to see everything. Chania is a very beautiful city that you should definitely see.
