Hear stories, myths, and legends about kings, sailors, merchants, heroes, lovers, and artists. Figure out how this city has been a crossroad between the West and East for centuries.

A really good tour. Manos, our guide, was very knowledgeable and passionate about Crete and all it has to offer. The food and drinks provided were delicious and we saw places we would have otherwise walked straight past. The history of Chania and Crete is fascinating. Manos was super nice and gave us some very good recommendations for our stay. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Manos!

We enjoyed our 4 hour tour with Adonis who was both knowledgeable about Chania and extremely entertaining. We were introduced to different parts of the area and given much advice regarding where to go, eat, drink, etc. I recommend highly taking this tour as a great introduction to the city, and if you are lucky you will have Adonis as your guide too!

Manos was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He took us to many amazing places all around Chania and we tried many things we would not have known about. I recommend Manos to anyone coming to Chania.
