Next, tuck into a delicious local lunch in a cozy, traditional, family-owned tavern that serves home-grown and freshly made delicacies from farm to table. This is your chance to sample truly authentic Cretan cuisine. Then, explore a typical village in Archanes as you wander its narrow lanes, and discover a world concealed from time. Here, savor the local liqueur called raki before heading back to your accommodation in Heraklion.

This is a really worth whole trip. Our lovely guide was very patient, even though it took me a while to get the hang of the Segway. We were also late to arrive and she was still lovely. It’s the best way to see the city and we both loved it. My partner and I tried this. Ages 51 and 57!

This was a great experience. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. We saw many features of Chania during the tour and took some nice photos. Only issue was that it was less than the 75 minutes advertised, but still very enjoyable.

The tour was nice but the audio commentary was a bit lagging
