Fun times in Chania city

We had a really fun time. The highlight of our tour was the delicious wine we were offered!

By Leo on 2019-08-13

Very good

We liked this tour very much as it helped us see Chania from a totally different perspective. As a family of four (with two teenage children) we couldn't just take a "boring" tour around the city on foot (as I mentioned, teenagers...). So we decided to participate in this tour and discover the city in a more fun way. We saw the colourful buildings in the Venetian harbour, bought a knife as a gift to a friend of ours who is a collector, saw the narrow paths in the cold city and the old buildings that depict another era! Also, the wines were simply magnificent. We recommend this tour!

A really old town

We loved the trikkes and wished we had more time in the old town. Interesting Folkrore museum but not much to see. From ancient times to present day with authentic delicacies along the way. A pity it was to short.
