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.

This is by far not your typical historical tour, sign up now and be a part of discovering what Greece is all about on this intimate introduction to the people and lifestyle of Chania.

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.
