A Private Real View of Crete

Experience the best of Chania on this private tour. Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle to visit the historic Aptera Fortress, the traditional Gavalohori Village, and a noteworthy olive oil factory. After these highlights, journey into the heart of the city. This exclusive Chania private tour is the perfect way for newcomers to explore its endless beauty for a great low price.

Your Chania tour begins with a personalized trip to the momentous Aptera Fortress. Built by the Turks after the Cretan Revolution in 1886, the Aptera Fortress was the largest fortification work of its era. This is a great place to take a snapshot of 19th century architecture before your private tour visits Gavalohori Village, a gorgeous old town with remarkable folk construction.

Gavalohori Village includes an 18th-century arched olive oil press, a cultural museum, and an impressive main square where a cottage industry produces knitting embroideries and laces of delicate art. Your Chania private tour then stops at a local olive oil factory, where you'll learn how olives are harvested, collected, and processed to get a fresh bottle of delicious oil.

The last stop of your private tour is one of the most impressive. Spend an hour and a half in the heart of the city, where charming cinemas, interesting historical attractions, and savory restaurants line cobblestoned streets.

The city is divided into two separate parts, old and new. The "old town" is situated next to the Venetian Harbour, famed for its captivating beauty and breathtaking view of the Cretan Sea. Here, you can purchase local cuisines and souvenirs, visit the Archaeological Museum and Museum of Typography (not included), or simply admire the breathtaking view at the harbor.

The "new town" is the residential area of Chania, where you can check out Nea Hora, its oldest district. Picturesque sights of narrow old lanes leading to a smaller fishing harbour can be seen there.

Book this Chania tour for an incredible adventure you won't forget.
