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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
