Customer Review

" It was a walking tour of old town Chania. It was interesting and opened our eyes to a lot of architecture that we would not have appreciated on our own. We went down charming side streets, discussed local customs, was given information on traditional restaurants (which proved to be excellent) and our guide took care of every member of our groups interests. Great start to our holiday and we really appreciated it." Amrit V. - UK

"Our guide chose to do the tour at 1800 hrs which was really good as it would have been too hot otherwise. Because we were a "slow" group ( one member had a walking aid) she came to our hotel in the morning and explained the tour and we were able to see some of the things that she told us about. The tour was informative (we would not have noticed many things on our own) and fun. We ended in a really nice restaurant (also suggested by our guide) which was the end to a really nice day. Our guide was exceptional." - Dilip, UK [private tour]
