Walking tour

This tour was very enjoyable. Chania is one of the most beautiful cities we have ever been to. The friendliness of the locals, the cobbled streets and the beautiful little port are the highlights of our trip. Our guide was really knowledgeable and polite and made our tour even better. All in all, it was a great experience. Highly recommended :)!
