I’m really going to have to agree with other reviewers and say this was a fantastic tour. The trip to Bali’s lagoon for pictures was fun and informative as Nasos kept us informed about Cretan history and the local area the whole way there. He was engaging and funny and we felt at ease with him immediately. If I could book our time in Crete again, I would look to Nasos and Chania Adventures to help plan our time, it was that enjoyable! Falassarna beach was incredible. The water was so clear and beautiful to swim in and we had a very relaxing time in our sun chairs and umbrellas. So glad we started our trip with Nasos and would definitely recommend his services as a guide and this tour!

The itinerary is really the best way to enjoy Balos and Falassarna. Nassos picked us up from our stay, drove in a very comfortable AC vehicle and took us to a amazing lookout spot in Balos which was private. Tip: Wear shoes for this hike to Balos. After the Balos view, we went to Falassarna, which is arguably the best beach in Crete. The water was calm, clear and the landscape was quite scenic. We really enjoyed the 3 hours there. We had a good lunch(vegetarian options were also available) on the beach restaurant and retuned home by 4. Overall, great value for money.
