What people are saying about Chania Regional Unit

Wow! What a great tour! This booking was so worth it - everything was perfect. Our guide Maria was just great and led us through the day really well. The price-performance ratio is great! There were two of us with our guide Maria alone on a private tour. It started at 10:30 a.m. First to the olive oil factory with tasting. The Greek coffee that we drank there after the visit was included in the price. Then it was on to the winery. There we visited the winery and tasted 5 great wines. There were also snacks. All the wines were very tasty and there was an explanation for each wine, how it is grown and what is special about the wine. Afterwards we drove in the car to a small tavern, where we ate traditional Cretan lunch. There was sooo much food and everything was really tasty and fresh! After that we enjoyed the view and were driven straight to the hotel. It's worth it!!

The best experience in Crete! Can’t recommend enough. We absolutely loved meeting the girls who gave us an incredible workshop and tour of olive oil preparation, we had olive oil tasting and we ended up with amazing local food prepared by them. Thank you so much again! We loved it!

We had an amazing time on our tour. Our tour guide Nora picked us up and from there we saw beautiful spots around Crete, trying delicious local food and drink and learning about the history of the island. Highly highly recommend this experience!

An excellent way to visit the city in a fun way and to go to very typical places that we would never have visited. A word of advice, take your time!

Our tour guide Maria was so easy to talk to and she really helped us understand some of the history and culture of Crete.
