What people are saying about Chania Regional Unit

Such a fantastic tour. The organisers were lovely, Maria was incredibly helpful over WhatsApp organising where we could get picked up. Vasilis, our driver, give us brilliant advise for the rest our stay in Crete. We paddleboarded, swam, cliff dove and instructors were so lovely. They also took photos throughout and sent them through after the tour which were great. Would 100% recommend, well worth the money.

Great fun! Pick up was near our apartment and on time. Stefanos and Julien were super friendly and great instructors. All the equipment was in good condition. The bay where the paddle-boarding takes place is beautiful and the water – like most of Crete – was clean and clear. Offered a snack at the end and photos taken on a gopro on the trip were sent over email the same day. Would recommend!

Had the best time! Absolutely hooked and buying my own board now :) Instructors were great and the beach was absolutely breath taking! Even enjoyed chatting to the bus driver and the views on the way. Thank you so much!
