Visiting Crete involves traveling in flavors. During your stay in our island you might have tasted some Cretan specialties: kaltsounia (small pies filled with fresh mynzithra cheese – soft local cheese), lamp with wild herbs, rabbit stiphado, the famous 'dako" (the barley rusk soaked in olive oil and tomato). Wine, olive oil, wild herbs, cheese, dairy products, meat, all local products raised in Cretan mother land. Pure products that enrich the flavor of your meze. However, the production really plays a staring role. Join us in a visit to some of the local producers, an experience which will also enrich your knowledge about the Cretan "quality food".

The worst bus tour I've ever been on! Bus arrived very late. Then driver did not give an information booklet. I couldn't hear the commentary because the driver was shouting into his phone for the first 20 mins! There was very little of interest to see. Then the driver announced we were at the end of the tour and we... More

Sorry Chania, but that was awful! The bus never stopped at Souda, so we got off at the Market and took a local bus there. Souda is quite disappointing as not very big, just a port really, however we got the bus back to the Market expecting to continue on the tour. 3/4 hour later, we are still waiting when... More

First of all, there is pretty different opinions about this tour and let me clear up a few things: Positive: - you will get around in the city and see the most important things (as a overview) - you can sit and listen to the speaker and get most stories in your own language Negative: - there is not many...

As we only had short time in Chania, this was ideal start to see what was about. We picked up bus at the Market and then did the whole tour (90 mins) back to Market. We set off again and then got off at Talos Square and walked round to the Venetian Harbour. The commentary (free head phones) wasn't the... More

Paid 15 euros for the open top bus tour of Chania. I thought it was a reasonable price for what was on offer, a city tour with recorded commentary and the option to hop on and off and get the next bus. Basically what most cities have. However this tour didn't come up to expectation. The commentary didn't match where... More

Commentary was not synchronized to what you were actually seeing and the drivers mumbled brief commentary was difficult to understand in either greek or english. As a result we missed getting off at the war graves stop so decided to... More
