Flavors of Chania Walking Tour

Here's your chance to see what everyday life in Chania, Greece is truly like. During this 5-hour walking tour you will navigate narrow streets and rub elbows with the locals as you pop into a few authentic spots in Old Town.

Your tour guide will take you and your small group in places where you can converse with town folk and sample traditional delicacies such as fresh tomatoes, olives, traditional Cretan cheese with honey, Cretan salad, "sigklino", "dolmades", "pastitsio", "ntakos", "mizithra" and the local spirit, "tsikouthia". You will also participate in a delicious wine tasting as you learn first-hand the traditions and customs of this beautiful country.

Your walking tour will allow you to view up close and personal this scenic port where old buildings, museums, churches and shops are all built close to the panoramic harbor. Throughout the tour you will have the opportunity to see a variety of sites as well as notable Jewish, Christian, Turkish, Greek and Venetian monuments. Not to be missed is the view from Profitis Ilias, a small Orthodox church on a hill that provides a sweeping view of the city of Chania.

You will begin to get a sense of Italy, maybe Venice or Florence, in the mesmerizing atmosphere of conditions that mix both character and culture of the Cretan people and their traditions. Accompanied by your local, friendly and knowledgeable guide, this tour will open your eyes to so much more than the average excursion as you will be provided with a glimpse into a culture's long, rich history.

Loved our tour! Very private with a small group of 6. We got to go to a wine tasting, traditional Greek lunch and his favorite coffee shop on the hill outside of town. Our guide the owner of the company was very knowledgeable and shared his knowledge with us throughout the tour. Recommend going with him or his company.

Fabulous tour of Chania. Wonderful info on Crete including cultural aspects. Nosos our guide was great. He was knowledgeable but also took good care of us(eg restroom breaks). Was a smaller group (6), we had a wine tasting Greek lunch and Greek coffee at his favorite places. A much more enjoyable experience than the lager ship based tours.

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!!!
