Our guide, Sophia, was wonderful! While showing us the sights of Chania, she took us to incredible, local food shops. We started with coffee and a sweet cheese treat as a late breakfast then sampled many different foods over our 4-hour tour. Our teen is very particular and Sophia went out of her way to help us find a few things she would like. We learned so much about Chania and also came away with much more knowledge of Greek food. We highly recommend this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience with Roussos for the Old Town Food tour. Roussos is very knowledgable and taught us so very much in such a little amount of time. We felt the food chosen were all "hidden gem" spots and everything was very tasty. He helped us even after the tour with other beach suggestions and restaurants, while also providing an excellent bakery for a birthday surprise. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

The Chania street food tour was DELICIOUS and informative. Eat a light breakfast and plan on a light dinner because I was quite full by the end of this tour. The food tastes varied from sweet to savory, some common and some unique to the Cretian diet. The walk was at a leisurely pace and not strenuous. Since the central market was closed for renovation, the tour took us through different parts of old and new Chania. Kelly was the best guide ever. She provided an excellent perspective on food and gave a great history of Chania and Crete. She blended all the information together seamlessly and effortlessly as if we were just having a friendly conversation. Not scripted at all. Answered all of our questions and filled in the conversation with interesting topics we didn't know to ask. A very enjoyable tour. Highest recommendation. Try to take this tour early on your visit to Chania so you can get recommendations and tips to enhance your visit.
