I recommend this tour. The driver was punctual and courteous and made every attempt to make the tour pleasurable. The wine lecture and tasting was one of the best I have attended. The Greek lunch was more of a dinner than a tasting. Excellent food and service. We ended the day with coffee at a sea coffee house Thanks
Reviewer: Susan Roberts
The wine tasting was fun and very informative...the little wine store staff were knowledgeable. Walking tour was great, lunch was outstanding., four courses of local fare plus wine! It was at Taberna, you must go., Outstanding and knowledgeable guide....Guides need to hold larger signs please...hard to find as we got off ship.

It was our favorite tour on our vacation. Nasos was so informative and chose a great restaurant for our lunch. The wine tasting was a great treat as well. Don't miss this tour.
Nasos is an excellent tour guide. This was a relaxing and informative tour. First stop at the hilltop restaurant provided a spectacular view and wonderful refreshments. However, in the tour details it outlines we will go to a dozen places - we went to three. The write up should be changed to reflect this fact. Food was great. Crete was great. Nasos was great.
Reviewer: David Schwartz
It is very hard to find someone with so much passion for their country. The best tour guide I have ever had and I have had a lot. Nasos made sure that everyone was happy and I know we all were. Kindness goes a long way and we felt like family under Nasos care. The wine tasting taught me a lot and I now know how to pair and taste wine. Also the lunch was totally amazing but to see Nasos going around to all of us making sure we are enjoying was unbelievable. Now if only all guides were like Nasos.
Reviewer: Mary Godlee
This was brilliant. From the tasting and learning about the local wines to a fantastic traditional lunch, this was a great tour. Our guides had a real passion about showing us around their fascinating city. Would highly recommend this tour.
Reviewer: Ed Vigluicci
Great experience with our very knowledgeable guide. Feel we really got to know the area in our walking tour, wine tasting and delicious meal in a very comfortable setting. Would not miss this one!
Reviewer: Ronald Kelso
Our guide, Nasos, met us at entry to the port and our small group was off to Chania. He told us a lot about his area of the world on our way to wine tasting. Mary gave us a very comprehensive lesson on how to smell, view, and savor the flavors of her local wine. We then took a walk around the Venetian harbor, then a walk, away from the tourist area, to the highlight of our tour, the food tasting. He took us to a beautiful restaurant located in a "ruin" which has been re-fitted as a restaurant and we were served a wonderful meal which highlighted many Greek dishes. On the way back to the ship, we stopped at a coffee bar overlooking the harbor. The meal and coffee stops were fantastic. The meal in that beautiful restaurant was memory making! It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Chania.
Reviewer: Paul and Margaret Maranka
We rated this excursion excellent because from the time we were picked up at the pier Nasos had everything planned. We enjoyed the wine tasting and the information that was demonstrated. The food and the atmosphere at the taverna was exceptional. It was great to experience Greek traditional food. Even our last stop overlooking the sea and having coffee was such a pleasure. Nasos certainly paid great attention to all the details. I would highly recommend this tour.
Reviewer: Linda Riley
Wonderful afternoon of experiencing the local color of Chania. Our guide ( a retired pilot in the Air Force) was knowledgeable and welcoming! We sampled local wines and local foods and saw a charming city in Crete. Highly recommend this tour. A 5 star for sure!

Today my partner and I along with my mum and dad went on the Flavours of Chania Walking Tour with tour guide Nasos. He and his wife Eleni made us all feel like family. We experienced breath taking scenery, exceptional restaurants, Greek food and coffee and learnt the art of wine tasting. Was very sad to say good bye and can’t thank them enough for making us feel welcome in their part of the world they call home. Highly recommended to anybody that visits. Highlight of our European trip. Thank you from us all - Kitty, Pedro, Antigoni and Stavro
We found this tour through an online searched and booked directly. Nasos was a perfect host! The tour was very small (only 10 people) and very personalized attention. He took us to his favourite spots in Chania (cappuccino to start, wine tasting, local shops, lunch). Every stop was fantastic. The coffee shop offered a panoramic view of the island. The wine tasting was extremely detailed and wine was plentiful. Shopping in town was lovely and relaxed. And lunch....well the food and wine just kept coming! You will not be disappointed with this tour in any way.
Reviewer: Sofiya Frankstein
We like this tour, which was not only restricted to walking pleasure around the island, but also has been filled by local life experience: wine and food testing. We just feel, that wine testing should not to be the first thing you start with. Nasos is the great tour guide. He takes care about all your needs, trying to be so warning, informed and keeps the mood of the group high even in the hot, sticky weather.
Reviewer: Christine Brown
From the moment we met Nasos at the pick up point we knew this was going to be a wonderful experience. We were a small group just perfect for us. Nasos and his wife Elena taught us all about current day Crete, it's people and cuisine starting out with a morning break at the KoyKoy Music Café. There were extraordinary views from the outside deck. Our day progressed with a wine tasting and later a multi course meal. Best tour of our cruise so far.
Reviewer: Terri Vaughan
Nasos Tsatsaronis was a fun, interesting and witty guide and the tour got even better when his wife joined us. We visited a coffee bar, a very informative wine tasting, had a lovely bit of time to walk around the town and then, the best part of all, the FOOD! We had lunch at a taverna and the hosts were just so warm and gracious. The food was served family-style and every bite was better than the bite before. We had Greek salad that had potatoes and bread in it (delicious), pastitsio, charcuterie, dolmas and more than I can even remember. Then for dessert, we had freshly made loukoumades. After a bit of shopping in the marketplace, we ended the day with smiles and hugs.
We recently did the tour in Chania and were so glad we did. The group was small. The van was nice- had enough a/c. We first went up to the top of a mountain for coffee- the view and coffee were wonderful! The wine tasting was wonderful! So informational and a lovely setting! We then had about 45 minutes to shop! We met for the best meal I had the entire time I was in Greece and Italy!! We were stuffed after the first course and still had a ton of food after that! We finished off with more shopping time and were delivered back to our cruise ship! The guides were amazing! Naxos and his wife are fantastic! I have no complaints! They even showed us the best olive oil to purchase and answered all of our questions!

Very enjoyable small group tour. Nasos and his wife treated us as friends and seemed to truly enjoy showing us around their favorite sites. Great food and coffee experience.
Reviewer: Susan Kamara
We had so much fun on this tour. Not only do you get to see a lot of old Chania, you also get to sample many of the local wines and foods. Our guides, Nasos and his wife were friendly, engaging, and very knowledgable of Crete.
Reviewer: Ronda Allen
Excellent way to enjoy a day in Chania. Nasos and his wife went above and beyond to introduce us to their favorite sights in the city and to share the most delicious meal we had during our three week trip. Highly recommend!
Reviewer: Beverly Hutchinson
This was a very interesting and fun tasting tour. A wide variety of experience in a few hours. Enjoyed our guide with his knowledge and humor. Would highly recommend this company for a good time.
Reviewer: Maureen Vaughn
Nasos did an excellent job sharing information about the foods of Chanda. When he found out that my husband is a photographer, he made sure to point out photo ops during the tour. The restaurant where we ate was amazing. We would highly recommend this tour to sample the foods and wines of the region.
Reviewer: Martha "Marcey" Norman
Nasos was an excellent guide/host. Very knowledgeable, personable, polite and gracious. We would take another tour with him in a heartbeat.
Reviewer: Allie Woodcock
We really enjoyed this tour. Nasos was funny and personable and loves his city and Crete. We expected to have a taste of and a taste of that---nay, nay! We ate two delicious meals complete with starters and desert and of course PLENTY of wine! We have a great time and went back to our ship too full to eat!
Reviewer: Bill Apple
We learned so much about the life, culture and traditions of the people of Chania. The highest level of attention that you could ask for on an excursion
Reviewer: Matt Monahan
Nasos Tsatsaronis and Shore Excursions are a great combination. He knows the best sites everyone knows as well as places that are not on the beaten path making for a great experience.
This walking/tasting tour was the most fun...& flavorful. We sampled many great traditional Greek foods and a wine tasting with the most interesting information. Nasos was a wonderful host. The day I was on the tour his lovely wife accompanied him. Interesting discussions of current Greece &, of course, very funny stories. I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed.

We were treated wonderfully by Nasos and even joined by his lovely wife for lunch. We were treated to delicious local foods and wine throughout the day. We were shown the historic waterfront and driven to a cliff side restaurant to enjoy espresso and fabulous views at the end of the day.

Dear nassos and eleni I’d like to thank you for the most wonderful tour of chania Going to the agora market brought back nice memories from my childhood in Beirut Eating the stuffed zucchini flowers the loukoumades drinking the wine were delicious and amazing You guys are fantastic tour guides telling us a lot about Crete’s history and showing us the nice areas in your city. I recommend nassos and his touring company 👍👍👍 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sent from my iPhone

Coming from America where you'd think the hot spots are locations like Santorini or Mykonos I was not expecting much from Chania. But I was completely surprised by Nasos and team! Such an intimate small group tour to get the real experience of the city. Walking through the narrow streets of the city, trying authentic food, wine tasting. Nasos gave us the real experience of Chania. We had a great time while learning about the city. Exactly the type of tour i had in mind. Of all the 5 excursions I did in Greece this would have to be the most memorable, will remember it for a lifetime. Would 100% recommend!!

Reviewer: Matthew Monahan
An exceptional tour is not only seeing, but learning about an area. Nasos Tsatsaronis selected fascinating stops to literally get a taste of Chania as well as places typical tourist buses don't see as his comfortable van was our home on wheels. Expert. Knowledgeable. Welcoming. A great time in a great place.
Reviewer: Simran (Lady #3)
I absolutely loved the tour guide! His humour was wonderful. We were taken to the best spots of Chania to enjoy the amazing view and the delicious food. He even surprised us at the end, won’t say what it was so I won’t spoil the tour for who ever takes it next. 100% recommend taking this tour with Nasos, you will not regret it.
