Wonderful experience in Crete
October 29, 2022
Relaxing, informative tour. Excellent van transport. Made the best use of our limited time. Enjoyed the morning cafe visit with great vistas, wine tasting, walk through the old city by the Venetian harbor and the classic Greek and Cretan lunch. I would highly recommend this tour group.

We had never done a "food" tour before -- and we were not disappointed! Demitri was excellent as our guide and driver, and it turned out there were only 5 of us on the tour. The food was amazing (and so much of it)! We stopped at a little coffee house open for only us (and an amazing view) and then on to lunch. It was a great way to spend out day in Chania. Ask for Demitri!!!

Review of Flavors of Chania Walking Tour
October 17, 2022
One of the best tours ever. Nasos is the best guide—so professional, knowledgeable, courteous attentive and very easy to understand. It is obvious he enjoys what he is doing and so proud of his country. This was such a memorable experience. We cannot wait to share it with our friend in the USA and can’t wait to come back again and, of course, do another tour with Nasos! Dennis & Irene

Best Food and Wine Tour Ever!!!
June 03, 2022
I am a world traveler, and I’ve been to 47 countries. This was the absolute best foodie tour that I have ever been on. In addition to the great flavors of Greece, we also had a great guide and “entertainment” from Nasos Tsatsaronis. His jokes were outstanding (it made the tour even more fun!), but his knowledge of the island and his intimate understanding of the food and culture gave a lot of us facts/language we didn’t know before. He was dynamic and certainly someone that you would want to have on any food and wine tasting tour that you would go on. If you ever book a food and wine tour, this is the one. He treated us like we were guests in his home. A tour was placed just right. We never felt rush or hurry through the experience and had a chance to enjoy the sites, sounds, and certainly the food and the wine. I invested my time in this review so that others could be aware of and have the same beautiful experience that we did. I would do this tour again and again. Have fun!!

NASOS OUR BEST TOUR- Flavorsof Chania Walking Tour
May 15, 2022
Nasos’ Tour was the best tour we had out of the six we booked on our cruise. He was very considerate of our needs (potty breaks, rest stops) and his tour was fun. We had stops at local restaurants where locals eat. We made multiple stops for beverages & breathtaking views, a wine tasting that was delightful and a fabulous lunch of local cuisine at an upscale restaurant with unique ambience. We learned much about local cuisine and customs. He is personable, courteous knowledgeable and genuinely wants you to have a good time. We highly recommend. Don’t miss out on the best tour book with Nasos.

Overall impression
October 21, 2021
This is such an enjoyable tour that I wish I can give Nasos, our tour guide, more than 5 stars. We can tell that a lot of thoughts have been put into the entire tour. The tour stops ranged from coffee shop overlooking Chanda, local market, traditional lunch in an unique historic restaurant and wine tasting are just perfect and perfectly put together. I wish all the tours can come close to this one. Kudos to Nasos.

Beautiful Harbor city
January 27, 2020
The guide stated the tour at a coffee cafe over looking the bay - fantastic views. Then off to the wine tasting before visiting the old city on our own. It was very interesting. We finished with a 4 course meal at a local restaurant which was out of this world. Didn't need dinner that night. The guide was great and it was a wonderful tour.

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

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.

Nasos the Guide made our tour very special
October 05, 2019
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.

Afternoon in Chania
October 02, 2019
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.

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.

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

Best Tour of our Trip

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.

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.

Crete is great
August 06, 2019
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.

Excellent day with wonderful food and information
July 31, 2019
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!

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!!
